Visited during a 10k run from Norwood Farm back to home in Cuckney. The filed in which it sits was ploughed so running across to the trig was "fun". The pillar is now looking a bit sorry for itself - little paint left on it and surrounded by scrubby bushes. Will possibly have a go at sprucing it up.

Briefly considered continuing E across fields from Elmton TP to pick up the track through Whaley Hall Farm but decided against this as you never know what sort of security you might encounter (I've previously encountered 6ft high fences or fierce guard dogs at other farms). So it was back the way I'd come along the farm track and then SW along Spring Ln to the B6147 Mansfield Rd. Continued S along B6147 before turning left at crossroads for a long walk E along Marlpit Ln. I get a sneaky feeling that 'The Works' on the edge of Bolsovermoor Plantation may have featured in C4 Grand Designs. Continued along the tarmac passing through Whaley to join Mag Ln which crosses the railway before heading gently up hill. At the junction with Cockshute Ln I took the PROW N along field edge where a convenient gap in the hedge permits access into the required field. Followed tractor lines across seedling crop to the pillar. Full 360 views are unremarkable but what a lovely location beneath the tree. Well done to the farmer for leaving the tree and pillar standing !! Pillar is complete with metal cap and one open sight-hole. FB has been painted white as I suspect the pillar had been too but this is only visible on one face now. Returned to the PROW and continued N picking up the bridleway that heads NW past Bonbusk to join a track that heads SW past water works and across the railway for the final leg back into Elmton via the Archaeological Way.

Total nightmare at this time of year as the field was full of waist-high oil seed rape which at least was dry and there appeared to be no tractor tracks at all. I turned into the field from the footpath and approached the oak tree clockwise, big mistake! After reaching the pillar, I returned clockwise and the route was a little easier. Definitely one pillar which required a lot of effort on a very hot day and not reccommended at this time of year especially having now seen photos at other times!

A day walking from Creswell Grags (very impressive with a new visitors centre) past Welbeck Abbey came back through Penny Green over Belph tip. Car ride to get the Norwood and Whitwell Trigpoints.

An awkward walk from Whitwell on a diverted footpath round a much enlarged Cresswell quarry,but the trig is in a great position sheltering under a tree with good views.Walked carefully over cultivated field.Went on to 497723.

Pillar in good condition, complete with all metalwork. Pillar sheltering under oak tree in middle of field of beans which seem rather overdue for harvesting. No views to speak of today - just rain

Cabbages this year in the field - though they will probably change into something different later - I'm always getting my crop ID wrong. Carefully used the tractor tracks to access trig.
