Found on a 5k circular walk from the Red Lion pub. Well hidden in hedge. Was about to see and touch it by not get a photo of the FB. May have had better luck going round the back via the field. Too many people and barking dogs around tho.

The sun was about to set as we reached the trig and it's hiding deep in the hedge and difficult to see.The farm is now very active and not deserted. The trig is in the west side of the hedge behind a wooden building/shed.

My second interesting encounter of the day - a deserted farm, except for a skip delivery lorry who was lost, and thanks to farm names on the OS 50k I put back on track. In absence of residents, entered field at ROW and simply walked down to trig, buried in hedge. Metal cap, raised letters, W s/hole open others not accessible, other than corner chip is in vgc.

Hiding in hedge, could only feel the FB. As it was pretty late did not want to start disturbing the local farm, by walking around to gateway, climbing gate etc etc

Hidden in hedge getting quite dark, havent yet mastered the flash on my camera.

Hiding in the hedge. The lady from the farm came to check I had found it, and was happy for me to view the FB from the field.

Approached trig from field side after parking on a dirt strip on Dodds lane then walking along the footpath leading to the farm. Trig in hedge & as no one was about grabbed a few quick pics

The best access is indeed from the field side, and its not a problem getting to it, since the field actually has a public footpath going through it (although not past the trig pillar).

I thought i was in for a GOML at first as the farmer and a couple of others arrived - after a quick chat they were climbing over the fence with me! - Pillar located in hedge, only just visible from the farm track side - condition is good apart from a chunk out of the top corner.

This is almost completely hidden from view as it now forms part of a hedgerow. Itís visible from the field side of the hedge but walking up the farm road youíll only see it if you look very hard indeed. I missed it completely and ended up enquiring at the farmhouse. The farmer was very pleasant and showed me where it was. He also gave me permission to go into his field on the other side of the hedge. Itís complete but the pillar has a top corner knocked off and similar damage to one of the edges further down. Itís set at about 45 degrees to the cardinal compass points and the F/B is on the south-west face. The view south west is nice enough.
