(403) A day out in Sheffield, and this was the first port of call. Hopped on the tram to the Herdings Park terminus, and then it was a short walk to the Pillar. And just as I arrived, the snow started to come down. Thankfully it didn't last long, but boy, it was super cold today. Interesting to read previous logs for this one, and I must admit that I'm slightly surprised that it has survived. So hats off to whoever was behind it's preservation. Now, depending on your point of view, this is either my 2nd Yorkshire Pillar, or my 1st Derbyshire one.

Having a day out travelling the Sheffield Supertram network. A 10 minute turnround stop at The Herdings terminus just gives you time to make the visit. As the pillar has been moved since my original visit, a repeat was in order, and a chance to log an arrival by a different method of transport ( done bike, bike/walk, car/walk, canal/walk, train/walk, bus/walk !).

good to see that after previous logs this has now been placed at the above co-ordinates set in a grassy bank approximately 65 yards from original site. Presumably once the builders have finished in the area, it will be seeded and tidied up a bit. Cannot critiscise the council/builders at all in regards to saving the pillar - comments on facebook state flush bracket wrong way round and trig leaning - just glad that it has been saved!

Good news. I looks to me like its destined to be reinstalled. It's moved from its pallet onto a metal support and now outside Number 10 of the new development.

Having looked at this on Google earth seemed straight forward enough. It was near to blocks of flats on a suburb of Sheffield. When I arrived there found it has been transformed into a building site with quite a few houses being built. Walked round the security fence not expecting to see any sign of the trig point but just noticed it above some rubble. Looks like it has had a coat of paint recently. Tried to access the site, as all had gone home, but no joy. The whole site was locked as tight as a can be and considering the area I do not blame them. Have taken photos from a distance I hope that they leave the trig point alone but I suspect once the roads are put in it will disappear...shame! TFTV

I think it has gone. Building work started exactly where the trig should be. No sign of it through the metal fencing.Update 11/02/14. Sheffield city council planning department have said that the trig point is fenced off inside the builders compound and will be left untouched. Time will tell. UPDATE. 8th March 2015 As previous logs, it has now been re-sited on the bank near to the road. 10 out of 10 to Sheffield City Council and the builders for not destroying the trig.

Not been to this bit of Sheffield before, but it is a trig you can drive up close to, being just off the ring road. No problems with access, trig is at the top of a grassy bank in front of the blue tower. White paint still ok, OS marked metal cap. Good view of Sheffield city centre from the nearby bus layby, trees prevented this view from the pillar today.

Pleasantly surprised by this location looks as though the council has made an excellent job of renovating two block of flats. According to Wikipedia there were originally three blocks of flats built in 1959 and known locally as the three sisters but one was deemed unsafe and demolished in 1996. The other two Queen Elisabeth Court and Queen Anne Court were refurbished in 1998.

A day of blustery showers. Just after I'd got back in my car down came the rain - trig and tower blocks framed by a rainbow. That and the unusual urban location scores a 6/10. Shame about the graffiti as this pillar is otherwise in good shape.
