Easy to locate and access if you donít mind walking a couple of yards on MOD land. From the broken down fence and path to the pillar I felt many had made the journey before me.

Parked in small lay-by near trig. Easy access fencing into field is broken down at corner. Trig is visible across grass a short distance away.

Viewed from small close by parking place by old water tower. Pillar is several yards behind fence on land signed as MoD Training Area and designated as a danger area because of live munitions and live firing. It's also private land. It would be folly maybe fatal to cross the fence.

Handy layby at water tower, hop over stock fence, pillar 60m into rough pasture. Top has such minor chipping as not really to qualify as 'Slightly Damaged', hence it's 'Good' for me. Original cap, raised lettering; rear sight hole open. 360deg farmland views, limited in all directions by tree line.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

We didn't actually go over to it, too much movement in the camp on the other side of the road
