Gate by the main road to jump, into a crop field with the pillar in the middle. Access to this point would depend on how much the crops have grown, but it isn't difficult.

Lovely views & several hares running around the field near the trig. Nasty crack at the base - it must have had a good whack from machinery at some point. A hundred yards from a gate on the A170.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 17th May 1951 costing 11.11s.3d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SE97/T91 in 1954. Levelled for height in 1967. SITE VISIT: Last maintained by the OS in August 1984. Approached from south. Parked by east side of 'High Street' just off south side of A170 at SE568812. Into field at south corner, arable field, followed tramlines to avoid crop damage. Pillar damaged probably as a result of being hit by farm machinery. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces SSW, ~199. Vented through SE sight hole. 135 open outlook from WNW through north to ENE, remainder blocked by trees.

Fortunately a tractor tramline lead direct to the pillar through the oats. Unfortunately a tractor has hit the pillar at some point and cracked the pillar at its base.

Visible but not the easies to access today due to a crop of turnips. Anyway managed to tiptoe through them to actually get to the pillar. Quite badly damaged from what looks like passing tractor blows but it is still standing upright. Not the most inspiring view today. Wonder where the name came from?
