Roadside, not much parking but a quiet road. Pillar has a marked SW lean to it. Original top cap is retained, deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole open. Extensive farmland views in an arc S-SW-W.

Spotted whilst walking the HHA geocaching series. As an added bonus a geocache is placed here. Thanks for bringing me here.

Roadside trig with easy access. As previously noted, this one leans slightly towards the field. Bracket faces road and there is some slight damage to the top edges of the pillar. Original plug still intact.

Unfenced roadside. If my photos anything to go by, pillar was leaning slightly. Logging 7 years+ after visit.

Wasted a little time looking for it at the highest point on the road before checking map to find it is West of that (by a small dead tree) and easily visible

An easy ‘drive by’ at the side of the lane. This one is leaning towards the field a few degrees but apart from that and a little lichen, it’s in very good condition. All the metalwork is in place and there was even some ‘extra’ wire tied to the anchorage loops on the top. I removed that before I left. Views are fairly uninspiring being hedges, lane and flat(ish) arable farmland.

Pillar easily missed being engulfed by roadside hedgerow. Position makes viewing hazardous as there is nowhere to park (if viewing by car) and 'C' class road seems to be used by locals as a shortcut and can get a bit busy.
