Parked at northern edge of woodland near gate. Climbed over gate and into wood to trig point not too difficult but look out for hidden foundation of buildings and manholes.

Bagged as YSM528 Tower View. Some skinny person went through the gap in the fence at the gate, however I had to climb the gate with the barbed wire on top, great Mr Farmer, doesn't really stop people just makes them mad! Then walked through the woods to the pillar.

Not a very exciting pillar, now situated within a forest of conifer trees but a lovely sunny day with great views (once you're outside the woods).

I don't think the land owner wanys visitors, with barb wire along the top of the gate. Pillar found easily amongst the trees, but absolutely no views.

Easy barbwire fence to get over. But be careful of the open manholes where there used to be some buildings. No views as its surrounded by mature trees now.

Picked this up as we were passing on our way back from a caching circuit. Had to climb through a barbed wire fence and then avoid holes in ground to get to trig. In good condition with no views as in amongst trees.

This one popped up on the sat-nav whilst passing, I then noticed some very handy parking just 0.1 mile away, so I stopped and off I went, although heading off into the nettle rich woods in flip flops and shorts was a bit on the painful side I wasn't going to pass up the change of bagging another trigpoint which was a nice and easy find, although the views are not as far reaching as they probably were many years ago.

Parked near the gate to the north and instead of harming myself on barbed wire like others have I just opened the gate and walked into the field and then turned right into the wood and walked up to the trig point. These things are easy in winter.

'Bagged' as I drove past taking my sister home. This might have been a nice Trig, but after leaping over a ditch and a fence, I stumbled about looking for it only to eventually find it under a big pile of branches and leaves (see photo!). I couldn't even get to the plate at all! Me. 265m

Honestly there is a Trig here - I am leaning on it Not the easiest trig to find - well hidden today!

In the heart of a forestry plantation with no views; not an aptly-named pillar! Parked on the A424 by the gate at the W end of the forest and then walked through the trees on the forest road until I found it. Original plug - slightly-indented letters. No paint. SW sighthole open, others closed. Strange spot!

Vgc. Just because it is visible from the road doesn't mean it is easy to spot! Road recently re-surfaced. Verge 'rebuilt'. So very limited parking. Wood guarded by barbed wire.
