The top of the pillar visible above a mature crop of barley. No path to the pillar so could not approach without causing damage. Not coming back so this will have to do.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

We've looked at the TP many times when passing on the bus. Close up the colors of the lichens growing on the concrete are really good.

Easy access without being watched - it was dark hence unable to rate the view etc - LOL. Trig in good order.

In a little field of Winter Wheat. Foundation slab is about 10cm above the soil level, otherwise in good condition with plug still in place.

Easy to spot from road this time of year. Park opposite by footpath sign. Cross road through gap and trig point is 70 metres to left. Re-visited 07/10/17 on diversion from walk along part of Peddar's Way.

This was quite difficult to find as the field is full of ripe oilseed rape ready for harvesting which is higher than the trig. Battled my way to it eventually with Shane looking on. Plug with indented lettering.
