Parked by HIghstock Bridge and walked acoss a flat field to the wooden fence/gap inthe perimeter fence. From there on it was a desperate struggle through the high bracken and over fallen trees. The first top ridge isn't the top, so keep heading east for a second ridge. Finding this trig in the summer foilage is akin to a good game of hide and seek. PS ! The day after I found 3 ticks on the underside of my upper arms ,presumably due to parting the bracken. Deer ticks I imagine.

Parked at road beside what looks like a walk. Crossed over and over gate, up through field to wooden gate in wall. Followed a deer track through bracken pretty much straight to the trig. Very wet at pillar.

It's wet

Same route from lane, but dry and hot day. Surprising amount of holly bushes in the wood to add to the general discomfort

Parked off road near to gate and crossed somewhat soggy field, over a wall and ascended through the woods.There is no path and lots of fallen tres to negotiate, quite hard going. The pillar sits atop a grassy mound. No views whatsoever. The flush bracket number is highlighted in yellow paint.

Parked by bridge to the west, next to the entrance to Meathop Moss reserve. Crossed the field and over the hurdle into the woods. A bit rough in places - felled and fallen trees - but easy enough.
