Parked off the main road at Dalton Gaps (SK 7572 7211), walked back along road 140m then into field. Pillar is being consumed by thorn hedgerow, original centre cap retained, lightly indented lettering; front sight hole open, others not checked.

(1017) Handy pull-in at the location. Pillar visible from the road, which was pretty quiet today - I'd imagine at busier times, parking would be more awkward. The hawthorn hedge, though neat enough and not really obscuring the pillar, still managed to prick me a few times whilst trying to get photos - thanks to some straggly ends. As for the pillar; All good - with OS plaque present. Nearby farmhouse still derelict.

Visited during a trigpoint-bagging bike ride (though I’ve pedalled past it many times before without realising it was there). The pillar is situated by a hedge on the perimeter of Darlton Gliding Club and can be accessed by a short lane. I had a great view of one of the gliders being winched into the sky. Pillar in good condition, possibly due to a “do not vandalise or else” plaque dating from 1999.

Just off the A6075, a short diversion from the A1 at Tuxford. Pillar is in hedge at the end of air strip. I took the liberty of driving off the road onto a convenient track near the trig. Farmer in field opposite appeared to be less bothered about my presence on the land than I was about inhaling the toxins he was spraying. Extensive views all round, the power stations are a bit of an eyesore but Lincoln Cathedral, due East is a magnificent sight. The derelict farmhouse, Darlton Gaps is still in a sorry state.

Walked from 730756 through Askham and East Markham and fields to the trig, which is in a field north of A6075 further away from the road as the 1:50000 map suggests. Trig is in good cond. with good views all round, apart from the derelict farmhouse; I bet it will rennovated into something posher in the near future. Never seen the OS plaques describing its historical imortance before. Hike to 720719.

The ground was dry so I was able to drive up the short track to this pillar. Some slight damage to one of the top corners noted but otherwise good. There were no gliders about today.

So, haven't seen the Imps since the second debacle at Cardiff, so thought a visit to Hucknall Town might be interesting and chance to get some pillars on the way! This one is in a hedge on the edge of a wheat field, easily accessed just off the main road and now on a new DEFRA Conservation Walk. Original plug - slightly-indented letters. No paint. S sighthole open, others closed. OS anti-vandal plaque on S side. Good views over Nottinghamshire to the S/W/E and Lincoln Cathedral just visible to the NE.
