Trig in hedge - easily reached. One corner of pillar has quite a chunk missing, but otherwise OK. Apparently land owner lives in Northallerton & locals walk their dogs on non-access land (western approach to trig). One tall fence to climb.

Having visited 3 pillars in the morning and had a good lunch in Darlington, I decided I had time and the cycling legs to loop around and attempt 3 more this afternoon. Took concrete road from A167 at the South edge of the village, passing row of terraced houses to field gate. Rough pasture in 1st field, climbed wooden rail fence at ditch rather than the mesh and barbed wire, stubble field, gateway directly ahead, pillar on left at far end of copse. No one seen, no stock disturbed, no damage caused, only footsteps left.

Parked to west, over fences, hiding in left corner under tree. Not a great spot, happy to get there and back without a challenge after reading previous logs.

Yuss! Evaded the GOML.. Pillar trunk good but top badly mashed, probably by hedge trimmer. Spider retains OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces NW, ~312. Vented through NE sight hole. Open outlook spanning 180, centred on NE.

From West, the track marked on 1:25000 map is blocked halfway by a fence and field of wheat, easy enough to walk round field boundary. Trig Hidden beneath large sycamore.

A joint visit with Carole. This turned out to be real failure. We met the landowner who refused to let us proceed to the pillar. Perhaps with some justification as we had just climbed the fence to get into his field. So we will leave it to another day and try and find the correct farm to ask permission from. [It is total supersition but we came past some bungalows to the west and could well have been spotted going through a gate onto private land. I just wonder whether a phone call was made on a neighbourhood watch basis as it seemed a real coincidence that the land owner was waiting for us with his dog on such an inclement day - very misty. Anyway it's just a thought. So, my advice is go and ask.]

walked in from the west, no legal footpath. Farmer at farm to the NE was staring, so took the photos and beat a hasty retreat.

Plug intact; no wells beneath the loops. Chunk of top gone at one corner including the end of the spider so would consider this one 'damaged'. Hidden away in corner; no immediate views.

Yorkshire. There is quite a chunk out of a top corner but as the plug and spider are still there and the pillar is sound, I am upgrading this to slightly damaged. Others graded as damaged, such as Moel Wnion in Caernarfonshire, are much much worse, basically wrecked.
