Spotted by chance as I found a closeby geocache; took the opportunity to walk through the open gate and across stubbly field to the pillar; great views on a sunny morning; pillar surrounded by barbed wire - weird !!

Parked on Sandy Lane in small laybye opposite gate into trig field. The field at the moment is maize stubble, so it's an easy walk across to trig point on hill above new housing estate.

This one looked a doddle but the field crop was now about seven feet high since the last visit. I managed to walk through it with very little crop damage and eventually found it still encased in barbed wire. There appears to be new house building in the near distance. Not the best time to visit.

Visited as it appeared on my SatNav as I was driving past. Close to the gate in the field. Surrounded by fading nettles and still covered in barbed-wire. The sweet-corn crop had gone though, so didn't feel bad walking straight to the pillar. Some views. Me, Mum 103m

Trig is still there and has not gone over the wire. (ex pow!) I think it might have started a tunnel there is a big mound nearby.No crop in field but will be soon

Easy find in field near a layby. Thought a policeman was going to be a witness to the trespass. Barbed wire circles the trig for some strange reason.
