Cycled down NCR41/45 from Glos. Short walk up a small hill from road. Quick pop over fence and there was the trig surrounded by friendly cows.

Bagged as YSM612 Overton. This one was the leveller and we are both now on 50 YOSMs for the weekend. Relatively easy stroll to the pillar on the footpath between the two houses, GPSr decided to play up so just had to look about for the pillar which didn't look as if it was on the high point.

I visited this pillar on the fifth anniversary of my first pillar log (Silverstone TP5981 on 20 June 2009). I felt it right to mark the anniversary with a pillar I had not visited before. This pillar was a nice easy walk from the lane to the west, up a footpath and then into the field containing the trig, dodging cowpats along the way. A surprisingly good view could be had from the pillar despite its relatively low elevation and the sun was shining through the light cloud making it a pleasant spot to spend a few minutes. Further details and photos to follow...

The pillar stands on a small grassy hill grazed by cattle inside a loop of the River Severn in the Vale of Berkeley to the southwest of Gloucester. The trig appears to be in fine condition; it has a metal cap with shallow letters and has FB S5310. There is easy access from the footpath in the adjacent field. The pillar has rather good views. It looks eastwards over the Cadbury silo and the Vale of Berkeley to the Cotswolds. The lower reaches of the Severn are to the north and south. The wooded hills of the Forest of Dean are on the opposite side of the river to the west. The Malvern Hills can be seen in the distance to the north. The trig was visited as part of a walk from Fretherne Bridge. Apart from the trig the highlights were the canal, the river bank, the woods at Hock Cliff and the wetlands at Saul Warth. Many birds, butterflies and bluebells were encountered en route.
