From the Karting centre, saw no signs, and met nobody. Had a bit of trouble finding the pillar as itís already reduced height is now being buried by brambles. The tracks around show evidence of off-road motor bikes and this along with all the rubble make the whole place seem a bit sad.

Parked just into the entrance road to the karting centre and walk along the concrete track that goes towards the trig point. The trig point is to the left of the track just before the a very large hay storage area.

On edge of the site of former RAF North Pickenham (1944-67) which had a varied life as a WWII USAF heavy bomber station, home of 220 Sqn operating Thor nuclear missles, and for testing what would become the Harrier. Pillar has a partial build up of soil and vegetation around it covering lower level of the FB - needed to dig down to reveal it. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; front, rear and RHD side sight holes closed, the LHD side one is below ground level so not determined.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Parked on the North Pickenham side by a go kart track and then walked by a field and then down a derelict air strip, just over a barbed wire fence. It was a hot day so the haze and the massive farm barns made it look like a scene out of doctor who
