Parked at the farm lane entrance and walked up to an easy to hop over little gate. Apart from the view out to sea, the whole environs is dominated by wind turbines. They appear everywhere. So it's either very windy here or the locals don't have a NIMBY attitude. Or more likely both.

Walked up farm road (leading to Parkhouse Farm), to point just past the trig to small gate giving access to field with the pillar - no need to climb over barbed wire fence(s). Evidence that field is used by cattle, but all clear today.

Parked at entrance to Park House Farm, unmapped road on my 1:25k map. Walked along farm access road, then short distance along hedgerow. Pillar sits on a plinth, approx 5m NW into a pasture. Top cap missing, mortar plug; RHS sight hole open.

Walked up the farm road, nipped through a gap in the fence (looked like some one had deliberately cut it) and walked along the field margin to the trig.

Unnecessary amount of barbed wire around the corner of the field where the pillar is situated. I walked through the gate into the adjacent field, which was sufficient to get photos of the pillar & the Flush Bracket.

Electric fence and lots of barbed wire. I used a cardboard tube,with a slit cut. I placed it over the barbed wire,and it was a big help

I have marked it as unreachable because it is about 3m into a field ( no obvious gate or stile to reach it, can read the OSBM plate though) alongside the boundary of another farm field in which there was an open gate about 50m from the footpath and 200m up the lane / footpath to Park House farm and the wind farm.

SITE VISIT: Arable land. Combination of fences to climb. The electric line wasn`t energised so just the barbed to negotiate. Mapped field boundary NW of pillar is no more. Pillar in good conditon. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces southeast, ~129. Vented through NE sight hole.

Access must be a lot easier now that they've built the road up to the windfarm, with one tricky barbed wire fence to cross. Turbines stationary today, although bullocks in next field were quite lively. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
