Parked at Village Hall and walk up to church and across to trig point in farmyard. It stands very close to the footpath, easy access.

Trig with foundations is now alongside the footpath at entrance to the wood. Plug missing and the odd scrape mark but overall in good condition. Visible from the footpath sign at the roadside. Well done to the farmer for preserving the trig and congrats to eon for finding it.

As predicted by P61, it has moved. Now on PRoW/FP on far side of farm yard, just before fence/style. Well done to the farmer for taking the effort to preserve this trig and make it accessible. 1 top corner chipped, FB faces road.

Trig has been moved and set upright just behind the metal barn. Looks fab, slight scraping damage from top to front which looks fresh.

Having tried and failed a couple of times to find where this pillar had been moved, eon's (Ian Snell) recent discovery made this a priority for me. I regularly walk with a group in the Wolds so including Wold Newton on the route was an obvious choice. Further clearance and tree felling has taken place but the pillar resides a little distance off the area currently being worked on. The pillar hides behind an old pile of wood south-west of the south-west corner of the open-sided barn. The GR from my Garmin track is approximately TF24159698. Ian's GR seems too close to the south side of the barn. I did not attempt to photograph the FB but it was easily felt underneath the pillar.

(70) I knew this one was long gone, but thought it was still worth a look around the surrounding area in case it had been dumped somewhere, but nothing was found. Familiar with the area, and its commanding views, as it's the 'county' top for North East Lincolnshire. Be interesting to see if anyone can find out the fate for this pillar. REVISIT: 6.1.19 And S2585 is now found. As the crow flies it's been moved roughly a mile from it's original location to a back corner of a farm yard, and just off a PRoW. Toppled and minus it's plug, but otherwise seems to be in good nick. FB facing downwards but just enough clearance to slide my phone under and photograph/record the number. My 3rd year of trig-bagging, and I finally get a 'first find'. Super happy with this. UPDATE: 1.6.19 Been popping back to check up on this one at semi regular intervals. Last visit was about 2 weeks ago - no change then. Yesterday the site was visited by trigger Sal La Bruja, who reported that the pillar is now in a upright position. Checking for myself, the immediate area around the barn has now been cleared, and the pillar stands close by, and is readily visible/accessible from the PRoW. Now that it's upright, the top and FB are finally fully visible. Also visible is some (recent?) damage to the RHS top corner, along with a scrape mark running down the pillar to just above the FB. REVISIT: 26.8.19 And the pillar has been moved once again - now on the PRoW. Managed to have a chat with two farm workers, who stated this was in preparation for the final move which will see it placed not far from it's original location. No hard deadline to this, but likely to be sometime in September... Pillar history: Built on the 30th of May 1939, at a cost of 4 13s 4d. Last maintained by the OS in January of 1981.

Followed tractor lines through growing crop to check this out on way back from County Top. No sign that a trig has ever been there.

Wold Newton Trig pillars are a bit thin on the ground...

(207) Middle of a ploughed field, but it hasn't reappeared. Checked hedgerows and woodland but to no avail. From O/S database Built 1939 no record of it being destroyed (to 1994??). Next time i'm here i'll try to find out exactly what it's fate was.

I approached from the north along the footpath. There are parking places near where it meets the road. I too coulldn't see any trace of this one in the field nor hedges. I continued south and then west to visit the North East Lincs county top just around the bend - a bit like me doing this hobby on such a hot day!

I took the opportunity of minimal growth in the field to check for any remains at the GR, but nothing seen. The hedges around the entire perimeter and a couple of nearby old chalk pits were also checked, to no avail.

TP6190 location The wood beyond is called Stock Furlong (no 's').

I didn't get as close as Morseman, but the crop was only standing about 9 inches high, with only gentle contours, so the trig should have been visible.

Where it should be The trig should be in front of the wood.

Got to within 250 feet of where it should have been, which is the middle of an open field. So it looks as if the pillar has gone.
