Parked in layby at spot height 97 metres and followed the track almost all the way to the pillar. Saw many hares and a small goat near the summit. Seems to be large reservoir cum slurry pit and work under construction near to the farm.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 31st August 1955 costing 18.14s.8d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NX56/DM/T40 by distomat observation during 1958. Levelled for height also in 1958. Last maintained by the OS in May 1988. SITE VISIT: Parked on section of old road at NX637534 but later discovered a westbound layby at NX644537 that would have saved me a walk as there is now a new unmapped tarmac track into fields which continues unsurfaced most of the way to the trig. Grazing land, indicated as Camp Hill on 1:25K map. Pillar in good condition. Spider was plugged with smooth brown cap, now broken open. Flush bracket faces 292 WNW. All sight holes open, pillar bolt viewable and photographed. Open views all round but raining at time of visit. Farmer (friendly) passed by on quadbike while I was at trig.
