The first of a bunch I hope to visit during a 2 week tour of Scotland & England in a rented motorhome. Having visited Nostell Priory (a tad disappointing), I cycled across from the car park. A trig overlooking a pub....what's not to like?!

Re-visit to actually view the pillar now in it's new location. A multitude of brownie points to Michael S, his mate and the farmer for re-siting the pillar we initially thought had been destroyed. Fantastic stuff.

This is the nearest trig point to my home. The condition has now changed from moved to moved / good. After reading recent logs a friend of mine spoke to the farmer and we arranged to meet up with him, he was very keen to replace the trig point. I suggested a spot near to the public footpath to give easy access to anyone logging the trig. Its wasn't possible to place it back in or near its original location but at least its back up standing in a location for people to see and visit. So this morning with help of the farmer the three of us resited the trig in its new location (SE3901318546) which adjacent to the footpath from Weeland road east through the farm with the com's mast.We are also hoping to repaint it in the next couple of weeks.

People around barns, so asked them for permission to visit. The senior (attested to being 74) took me round. Adjacent to comms mast lying on side with FB uppermost and base attached. Was told that it was originally in a hedge line adjacent to an ash tree. The former was removed to aid machinery use. Later the tree was badly damaged in a storm and disturbed the pillar, so both were removed. Prompted by the increased interest, he is thinking of re-erecting the pillar somewhere accessible close to the road.

Shame there is no trig here, hedgerow preventing any thought of getting to where it was and farm close. Views to Featherstone, Pontey, Wentbridge, Upton Beacon. Wakefield to west, Calder/Went valley boundary. 8 nearest trigs now bagged!

hunted for this pillar twice in 1999 and 2000 but it used to be s1794 which numerologically would've been my son Jamie's 95th birthday pillar and Princess Di's 33rd. Delighted to see that jwrouse got some pics in 1998

Hedge ripped out; a few v.small fragments of concrete in the vicinity. A deep hole in the next field likely due to mining subsidence. A roadside memorial commemorates Sharlston Colliery, 1865-1993.

Went SouthEast down path marked from Sharlston and the trig should have been in field - large and newly sown with grass. No sign. I then went around field to other side and up to its highest point - near tree - but still no sign.
