Visited both Eagle Hall Farm and Eagle hall High Wood Farm couldn't find anyone to ask permission. So stopped on drive near trigpoint and walked across to it,

(510) Sought permission to visit this one at Eagle Hall Farm, which was readily given. In fact, when I first asked about the pillar, the response was "Are you here to take the bloody thing away?" A pain for farmers, at times, I guess... Was able to drive up to the trig, and the field - despite the recent bad weather, wasn't muddy. No 'S' on the FB. A substantial lean to this one, and missing it's spider, but a nice one to bag. Added bonus of some good views from the location. Pillar history: Built on the 25th of March 1936, at a cost of 17 6s 8d. Last maintained by the OS in October of 1980.

Trig listing at 45 degrees. Easy walk over the field from the road that leads to the farm, however it was very muddy beneath foot (ankle deep)

2nd of 9 new pillars during Durham to Dorset bike ride. Easy to locate and access, but is in a corn field so use of tractor tracks needed.

Spider missing. Pillar leaning. Asked for permission at adjacent farmhouse. Told the field did not belong to them but that the farmer would probably not object.

Pillar is quite visible but this time of the year is not the time to visit it. Crops in full growth meant that I had to be satisfied with viewing it from the edge of the field. At other times it should be easily accessible particularly if permission is given from adjacent farm.

Permission to visit readily given at farmhouse. Trig is missing spider and plug but the loops remain. Apart from the odd appearance the condition is otherwise OK.

A was a regular visitor to a nearby village for about 30 years so I have taken a very long time to get around to visiting this pillar! Nobody at home apart from builders to ask permission of - needless to say they were quite happy. The pillar is out of alignment if not out of position so I guess at least moved is an appropriate description, but so is damaged!

just off track leading upto the farm, good views, not sure why this is listed as toppled or moved as it is still standing.

(247) Permission to visit given by a rather enthusiastic farmer, spent some time "spotting" other trigs from this location. I must admit quite a panoramic view from up here. Trig doesn't seem to have sustained further damage since the last visit, although as said the plug and spider has long gone. FB has no S prefix.

No 'S' on the flush bracket number. The plug is missing, as is the tri-bracket. One hook is also badly damaged and the whole pillar is leaning at about 30 degrees to the vertical. Obviously someone has made a concerted attempt to remove it, without success. It's in the middle of a field, currently planted with winter cereals. No access by path so I asked at the farm. Super views over Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
