Parked next to the gate that I climbed over. From there it was short uphill walk to the pillar on the right which was almost completely covered by the conifer hedge separating the field from the neighbouring house. From what could be seen it appeared to be in good condition and it retains the original spider and centre. There are views accross open fields and woodland towards what looks like a mixture of housing and an industrial estate.

Nipped over field gate opposite Smallage Farm, into paddock. Pillar sits within boundary of the house at West Lane Nurseries on N side of road but is visiible, inc FB, from the paddock, albeit it's largely being consumed by the macrocarpa-type conifer hedgerow. Original centre cap retained, raised lettering.

Drove to location and could see hedge which has been mentioned to have swallowed trig. Signs on gate and fence of field make it clear it's private and has horses so did not climb either. There didn't happen to be anyone around to ask, or I probably would have done! Logged as we're happy we were close enough to it! Had to log as inaccessible as otherwise it says we haven't been there!

(1459) Called in at the bungalow. Met with the chap there, and he of course was used to trigbaggers visiting. Good views from his garden, and he pointed out all the local landmarks, and talk turned to nearby Orgreave and the Miners strike. The pillar can't really be viewed from his garden. As the field owner was about, it was a simple case of walking over to ask permission, which was freely given. Horses in the field, but they wasn't a problem. Alas not much of a clear view of the pillar is available - hedge just about swallowing it up, and the FB is obscured by plastic netting. Still, a nice one to bag given the friendly chats and good views. Pillar history: Built on the 14th of September 1947, cost not listed in archive. Last maintained by the OS in October of 1985.

Very welcome greeting from the own of the bungalow adjacent to the trig point . He showed me the easiest way to find it and also help me through the barb wire fence into the trig field. The trees in the hedge line are overgrowing the trig.

Entered field through gap between metal gate and hedge a few metres west of Smallage Equestrian centre. Made my way up the minor hill along Eastern boundary of field until I found this pillar amongst leylandii just inside boundary of adjacent property. Only views to be had are West over Treeton Dyke.

I didn't want to walk through very high grass and on a private garden boundary, so went up drive to shop for free range eggs. Readily given permission to visit pillar. Operation run by two brothers who were both interested to look at my map at locations of other nearby pillars. Said no one else had been for over a year. Now in a hedge and site looks different to photos.

Its now in the garden as opposed to the field. I wonder if the position of the fence has moved as if by magic. The owner was gardening when I wandered in and was happy for me to visit the trig and take a few snaps.

Asked at nearby 'farm', bloke said it wasn't his but he knew the farmer and told me to go up anyway, provided I shut the gates. No problems.

When I was at the trig the chap who lives in the bungalow came to see what I was up to. He was friendly enough and quite interested in the location of other local trigs. He said that there had been plans to erect a mast at this spot but he had firmly opposed it. It's now about a half mile north and cost them a fortune to get mains power to it - serves them right. Pillar is well looked after. Plug with raised lettering.

You need permission to enter the field. This can be obtained from either the house nearby, or the farm across the road.
