(612) The Retford area seems to have been blessed when it came to pillars. Practically tripping up over them today! And this one was as easy as it gets to bag. Situated just off the A638 North Road, at the junction to the Idle Valley Nature Reserve. All good.

North side of entrance to reserve and works. Couldn't find it at first because I was using a 1997 OS map and it didn't make sense with where I was searching. All was well when I spotted it and I realised that the reserve entrance must be post 1997. All intact, uninteresting location .

Dead easy trig to find and in good condition; walked from Babworth trig at 683818 and it's on left hand side of Tarmac entrance on A638. Rolling fields again with power station clouds in the distance.

This is one lucky pillar! If the entrance road to the Tarmac headquarters had been built just 10 feet further north it would have been curtains for it! As it is, it's right by the A638, all intact with the original plug - slightly-indented letters. Some paint visible. All sightholes below ground level. No views from here at all.
