Seems to be a bit further from the road as was shown on my Landranger map. Farm very busy with horsey types but ok with me hopping over the gate in the back garden for a visit.

Interestingly its on a farm, access through their back garden/parking. Looked like no one was home, cheekily sneaked through the gate & bagged trig.

4/8. Requested permission to access the field behind the farm, the owner had no problem with me walking through the gate to log the trig. All metal work intact. Interesting to see how the immediate surrounding has change from the early logs !

Owners of house were outside and opened the gate for me. Very friendly and had a five minute chat about what the pillar had been used for. They seemed pleased to have it there - certainly not under any threat. Lovely clear evening on first full day of London 2012.

Easy to find. At back of house by road, public access, next to greenhouse and water butt. Buried a few inches so seems very low. All metalwork there, sight holes not visible.Good views in one direction.

What I saw today looks rather different from the pictures posted previously. It is now standing next to a greenhouse - so either it is in a slightly different location or the area has been redeveloped. Wish I had taken a photo now

No need to go through gate if you approach from the Westerly of the two footpaths. Good View to NW.

Buried in nettles behind a house that's being renovated. Probably easier to see in winter, but might be under threat. Certainly not cared about. Good condition, original plug. Private

After dark visit. Parked in layby with telephone box and proceeded through small gate over snowy field to find pillar by dry stone wall. Footprints in the snow suggested rabbits had beaten me to the pillar. Local inhabitants appeared not to notice flash of intruder's camera!
