Good RoW along the Midshires Way from road junc to west. Last section cuts across a muddy recently sown arable field. Pillar sits on W side of a field boundary and retains an original centre cap, indented lettering; all sight holes open. Views not noted as pitch dark.

I parked on the road to the NW then followed ROW over several fields, intended to come back the same way, however, the field had some very frisky bullocks in it, so i took a diversion (coward I am :)) and went full circle and went back through lodge farm and back up the road. Pillar good condition and located on field boundary a few metres from the ROW, nice quiet area.

Found on a long walk on a hot day . Pillar is easy to spot at the side of an arable field next to a hedge which obscures 50% of the view , but good vistas from nearby . co-ordinate reading : N52 30 051 W000 50.753

Didn't park by the bridleway and started off in wrong direction. Once on path it was easy to find, though a few of the rights of way have mysteriously disappeared. Pillar in good condition. Got very wet on the way back!

Quite straight forward to reach using public bridleway from the east. Pillar quite visible standing just away from the hedge (western side). Very nice location.

parked at the lodge, not sure if these are full time houses or holiday homes but plenty of people about and nobody asked who I was as I left the car,no footpath signs so just walked through the plant hire yard and through the gate and up the hill without asking,nice views from the top,the footpath is signed at the top of the hill as straight back down to the lodge so not sure if it's been moved,diverted or somebody just does not want people about.


take you pick on footpaths from the top.

The Lodge seems to be the favoured route and I'm adding a me to parking on the corner where the minor road joins. Watch out for the black dog in the farm it has a loud and sudden bark but no bite. Nice stiff climb after the last few days all 50m of it :-)

A pleasant walk from the road junction to the east of Lodge Farm. The pasture field was full of cows and calves but they didn't seem very interested in us. Plug with indented lettering.

Walked up the hill from the Lodge farm, bit muddy and in the company of bullocks and sheep but ok. At the top circumvented a winter crop to find trig on far side of field. Bracing icy blast with a bit of snow, so i didn't hang around too long, although the views were good. A spring visit maybe?
