I parked in the layby (making sure to respect the notices which suggest that blocking the gateway will result in your car being flattened by a logging truck !) for a very short walk up the broad dry track. The pillar is tucked away in the hedge, in good condition, and the path side of the pillar is almost totally covered by a tapering blue plaque explaining the history of ... the bridleway. Strange. At first I was looking to the sides for the FB plate, nope, not there , surely they didn't cover it with the big blue thing ? The only way to see the far side of the pillar (the hawthorn is dense) was to lean over the top of the pillar ... no, no FB there. Ah, it's on the same face as the big blue plaque, I just needed to flatten the nettles!
