Pillar in good condition with reasonably clean white coat; original cap in place, indented lettering; 2 sight holes open. 360deg views but N to May Hill and W over Vale of Berkeley and R Severn particularly good.

The pillar is sited on the edge of a golf course; there is a topograph nearby, it is close to the edge of the scarp of an almost detached part of the Cotswolds. There is a car park in the centre of the hill and the Cotswold Way makes a loop around the crest of the scarp. The pillar is painted white, has a metal cap with shallow lettering and FB S1508. The view is outstanding and includes: the Vale of Berkeley; the Severn with its power station, docks and bridges; the Mendips on the horizon; the hills of the Forest of Dean; the Malvern Hills and Bredon Hill. A circuit of the hill top takes in some pleasant woodland and several other view points, Hollow Combe is particularly picturesque. There is a cut bench mark on a small stone post in front of a memorial shelter. Parts of the scarp of the hill have been designated an SSSI, the common land of the hill top have recently been the site of skirmishes between golfers and walkers. Today was bright and very breezy, not much sign of wildlife but many golfers and dog walkers about.

parking on the golf course (not by the clubhouse) nice simple walk around on tracks for great view of the lower Severn Valley. Care needed on return, follow cotswold way signs if in doubt as the most visible track will tempt you down into the valley

This pillar is in a position that commands superb views over the plains below. There is a golf course surrounding it, but the Cotswold Way passes right by the pillar and this makes access easy.
