(331) After checking out the water tower, I then drove back to Grove Farm to ask for permission to visit this pillar, and it was freely given. Had a good chat with the father, and then the son, who told me all about the history of the place, and of it's use by the RAF during WWII. It was then a short walk to the pillar which is in very good condition. Whilst there, I had a quick look around the buildings, as well as a closer look at the water tower. Pillar history: Built on the 12th of November 1956, at a cost of £21 0s 0d. Last maintained by the OS in September of 1987.

I got here by driving down a very long narrow road in the dark with drainage ditches on either side! Once I got near I discovered I was on the wrong side of the ditch so I parked at the pub and found a way round to the trig by negotiating a barbed wire fence. Then a boggy stomp across a field. Quite an adventure! Trig in fine condition.

I parked by the pub and accessed the area on the track leading to the tower, stepping through the barbed wire. Nice easy find.

My digital Landranger appeared to show the pillar on the road side of the ditch so took a while to find. Pushed for time so only had a cursory look for access but could see the flush plate clearly from the road with binoculars.

I've been to try to visit this trig before as the YOSM travelling geocache has visited it but couldn't find a way in. There was no-one at the house to ask permission to go through the gate so left it despite it being temptingly visible from the road. A different day today and this time there was someone to ask. They duly obliged albeit with a few questions about trigpointing but I assured them I'd cause no damage to either the gate or the land and they seemed fine about it. All in good order here and glad to get this one ticked off.

Parked at the picnic site just North of Epworth on the A161. Took the PROW NW across fields of barley to Carrhouse Rd then along the lanes to Sandtoft. Pillar is easily accessed via the track at SE 74245 08091 (just West of the Reindeer Inn). Gates were wide open when I visited but it would be no problem stepping over the adjacent, low barb-wired fence. Should also be possible to access via the bridge at SE 74250 07603 then walking North along the bank of Idle Drain past Grove Farm (but you'd be pretty easily seen). Pillar itself is in good nick with an original metal cap and raised lettering. Sight holes are just below ground level. Surroundings nothing special - entire area is very flat with a proliferation of drainage dykes which reminded me of childhood visits to Romney Marsh in Kent. Returned to Epworth via Scawcett Ln taking in the two old windmills on the northern edge of the village.

1st of 9 new pillars on a Durham to Dorset bike ride. Easy to locate, but perhaps not so easy to access. Viewed from across a deep drainage ditch, but not visited due to lack of time.

Visited with Carole. Viewable from road but not accessible from it due to broad deep drainage channel between them. We used the track to the west. Through a gate and then straight to the pillar. Some water wporks activity and we asked at the site hut and didn't get a no ('nothing to do with me') so no problem. Pillar is in good condition and retains an original raised lettering plug.

Had to make do with looking at the pillar across the dyke as there was no way to gain access. Some construction work going on at the water tower putting paid to the obvious approach route.

I wasnít sure how to get to this one but in the end, it was easier than Iíd thought. Go up the short lane next to the pub and when no-one is looking, go through the fence on the left. From there, itís a short walk around the back of what looks like and old wartime airfield building to the pillar. Probably best if youíre not wearing a bright red anorak and pick a time of day when there are not many people about as you will be visible from the adjacent pub and houses. The pillar is complete with all itís metalwork and in good condition, albeit a might grubby. Thereís nothing much in the way of views as the pillar is in a paddock surrounded by trees, bushes and old buildings.

Cannot now reach this trig of Reindeer pub car park new fence in place so i parked in the car park but climbed over the bridge wall and went down the river bank next to River lodge. Care needed to climb over fence into the field! Timing is the secret to begging this trig. Could be reached from South via Grove farms private road? Trig in good condition with interesting surroundings.

A revisit with my boyfriend as he hasnt bagged this trig before, despite it being the closest to home. This time I took a different approach and climbed through the barbed wire fence along the lane at the the side of the pub. Took several shots of the old RAF buildings and structures and the water tower. Quite an interesting liitle location.

I used the route via the bridge to the south. No fences, but gaps where gates once were. This site was part of RAF Sandtoft (1944-45). The buildings close to the pillar can be seen in pictures on www.controltowers.co.uk.

Was reached easily, follow the road about 300m south of the trig point and turn over the bridge into the farm track, turn right, up past the front of the house on your left and straight up to the pillar. No fences, or barbed wire at all. Not sure whos land it is on, it seems to be a Yorkshire Water site but it isnt fenced from this route, the old building contains farm machinery and farm type rubbish so it could belong to the farm. The route to it from the back of the Reindeer pub carpark did seem to be fenced but I didnt try that way.
