Second of six during a bike ride in the Lincoln area, and first of three on/near the B1398, i.e. along the escarpment that runs in a northerly direction from the city. Easy enough to access from the road via the track, buried in the hedge.

(289) A quick and easy one. Parked up at the entrance and walked the short journey to the pillar. A few cars came and went, and the field was being worked on, but nobody stopped or came over. Top not visible but the rest of the pillar was.

Parked at the start of the farm road for a short walk up to the hedge-embedded pillar. Foliage appears to have been trimmed back not too long ago as it was easy to find.

Last of day in darkness trig well buried in hedge but in vgc/cap farmer came up the lane as we were taking photos said we had a strange hobby but declined my offer to trim back the trig told me he preferred it to remain hidden! P.S. Went for a pint in the dambusters arms in the nearby village of scampton and what a place it is packed full of history and ww2 memorabilia.This was the famous squadrons local,the red arrows air display team are now based at RAF Scampton.

After the Charles Close Society AGM in Lincoln I decided to look for some local trigs. I parked at farm track entrance which seemed very well used - cars were coming and going along the track every few minutes! A short walk along the track was all that was required to locate the pillar. Although pruning would have been necessary to have a good look at it I decided against it in view of the well-usedness (is that a word?) of the track. Pillar in good condition; original cap with indented letters; FB faces NNW; NNW and ENE sightholes open, others apparently plugged.

I had been walking with my group the Woldtimers in the area and a revisit at the end of the walk seemed worthwhile. At this time of year a much better view of the pillar was possible compared to my summer visit 5.5 years ago.
