Spoke to young man at shooting centre and give all clear to drive up to trigpoint. Still piled up with tyres and junk but in good condition. Interesting area with old airfield building etc.

Drove up to the track towards the trig, but there was a sign blocking the way. An airsoft game was in progress, so we asked at the office if we could see the trig and the helpful chap said no problem. For our own safety, he asked us to wait until the current game finished (which was only a few minutes). We were escorted up and shown where the trig was, as its used as prop for the games.

Drove up to the airsoft range (which only takes place at weekends). A sign blocking the road to the trig saying Private so we asked at the office. Chap in there was only too delighted to let us enter but for our safety asked us to wait. We chatted whilst we waited on the game to end. He escorted us up to the trig which was surrounded by nets and tyres. Note to other finders, don't be deterred by the sign, go in and ask and you will be allowed entry.

Drove up track and parked within 300 feet of pillar. could not see it initially bit then spotted the top in amongst nettles and brambles and of course tyres. Pillar looks in good condition. Thankfully no paintballing going on here today but looks like it may be fun. Very flat views around.

In the area for a family break at Center Parcs, made an excuse to pop out and bag this one. took the chance and drove along the bumpy track to park right next to the pillar. Easy to find, as others have said the area seems to be used as a tyre dump! Also logged as YOSM344.

Took an indirect route falling bridal way from village nearby then approach from the south easy to get to lots of people around paintball I think . Trig surrounded by tyres still . An interesting place I thought .

Became involved in the aforementioned war games but avoided any life threatening injuries. Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Cycled up track OK. Area in use for war games with men in armour carrying axes and bows!

Sadly the pillar is surrounded by used tyres which dot the surrounding area.

Revisit for photos. vgc, metal cap, deep letters. Walked up past pig arcs, although an easy drive-up as noted.

Came for this as it is also a YOSM. Drove up and parked right next to it for an easy log, quite a good view from this small hill, although as it was minus 5 C we quickly jumped back in the car.

Easy find just past farm buildings on right hand side of concrete track. Some patching up has been done to the side of the pillar and there are a lot of old tyres stacked against it.

This was the first of two YOSM locations visited today. I thought that they might be a bit tricky as neither was on, or even near, a public right of way. At best, Iíd log them, at worst, Iíd use the day as reconnaissance for a full camo dawn raid tomorrow. In the event, that wasnít necessary. I stopped at the north end of the concrete farm road and had a good look around with binoculars. I couldnít see anyone about so I drove right up to the pillar. If anybody else is contemplating doing the same in a normal carÖ watch out for the truly horrendous pot-holes in the road!! Not a particularly pleasant site, this. Itís an old wartime airfield that was, apparently, later used for Thor missiles. I suspect that casual visitors would not be welcome. The pillar is complete with all itís metalwork although a couple of large chips in one edge have been repaired with some sort of filler. The centre plug is of the shallow indented type. No views to speak of unless piles of old car tyres float your boat.

Easy bag, as can be driven to directly. Looks like this was an old war time airfield, but later used in the cold war for Thor missile base. Closed only in 1963, see www.raf.mod.uk/bombercommand/s48b.html

A miserable day for it on gikes. I agree with "elvi5uk" in the fact that visits wouldn't be encouraged.

In good condition next to farm buildings and accessible very concrete road. I doubt visits would be encouraged
