Asked at the farm and permission readily given. The pillar is by a small wood and has been uprooted from its original location. Two consecutive moved pillars and a long while since the last photograph.

Parked at end of farm track, through gateway as track bends left. Hiding along edge of woods. Not the best of spots.

a return visit because I was an ignorant pillock last time by wandering into the field centre without having looked at notes that would've told me it was at the side of the field. good to return and photograph it.

Aaargh another failure. I'd wandered into middle of harvested field stubble and was going to report back that it'd gone. I did pick up a fine firm smallish giant puffball that had just sprouted after harvest. What a pain that my phone battery died half an hour before and I'd not been able to read notes again and hadn't transferred any on to my map. I now recall reading something about this one moving. I had a little look along woodland edge anyway but not dilligently, which I would've done if I'd realised it was still there.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 17th April 1951 costing 21.11s.9d. Levelled for height in 1952. computed as tertiary triangulation station SE97/T15 in 1954. Last maintained by the OS in June 1984. OS archive comments "Pillar slightly tilted". SITE VISIT: Pillar now relocated to southern edge of field near SW corner at SE946807. Approached from east. Parked north of farm entrance on opposite (east) verge of Brompton Ings Road beside ungated field entrance at SE949808. Followed farm track to rightangle bend and along north side of woods to trig. Hidden in high nettles (seasonal). Moved as previously described, pillar on foundation with slight lean but otherwise in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces northwest, ~313. Vented through SE sight hole. Open outlook from present location is limited to a 45 span from NW to north.

Scanned the field from the end of the farm drive and the road with binoculars, but no sign of a Trig.

The field is now ploughed and there is no sign of a trig.

Didn't venture into the field but its newly planted and so nothing to obstruct the view. Even if toppled, the trig should have been visible but there was no sign of it, the hump it was relocated to, or the original field edge. I checked from the E end of the farm drive, from the roadside and from the track on the N edge of the present boundary - just a big open field. So it appears to have been either destroyed or moved again at some point since the previous visit 2 years ago 8-( Trig symbol still shown on current OS 1:50000 and 1:25000. Geograph has a photo of the trig dated 4 July 2006 so that narrows down the date somewhat.

vgc, metal cap deep letters. No GPS, but seemed to me to be c.100m further N than mapped, say SE94808090; leaning. Decent view

As predicted by RoPeHe the boundary has gone leaving this one in the middle of a field.

Made a quick dash from the road into the field as there was a farm nearby.

All metalwork present, but pillar is leaning slightly. Pillar has evidently been moved bodily around 60 metres north to a field boundary, though the field boundary itself seems at risk.
