(221) Parked up next to the Guest House and crossed the road, then over the metal gate, and into the field. Followed the field boundary up to the pillar. A 5 minute walk. All appears to be good.

On way to meet old mate to see Lancaster bombers flying at East Kirby. Easy find. Parked in front of white Blackbirds Guest House and restaurant, crossed road and entered field via metal gate and followed field edge to top of hill. 360 degree view all round, jet engines could be heard from Conningsby (?) in the distance.

Not the easiest one to access. Joint visit with Carole. We entered the field through a wooden gate just to the west of Newball. Then because of growing crops had to follow the hedge line northwest then northeast to eventually get to pillar. A better way which we returned on was to follow the hedge on its northwestern side back to the lane that goes to Newball where there is only a metal barrier/gate to negotiate. Pillar in good condition and retains an original plug.

Parked car in lay by in front of the B and B on the A 158. Crossed road then crossed dike over handy steel pipe care needed. Over fence and up hill with hedgerow on left hand side to the trig.

I too got very wet reaching this one, through the weeds of the field edge, and brushing against the tall rape, still wet from rain earlier in the day.

Followed Mick and Shane's instruction and found the gate easily. A walk up the field - and there it was! Original plug with slightly-indented letters. All sightholes below soil level. Traces of paint, but not much. In hedge line by a rape-see field, just coming into flower. Some agricultural views.

In the hedge at the top of the field. There's a gateway to the field just before Newhall. Plug with indented lettering.

Couldn't find it 15th May 2004  13:09  by discjirm

I climbed up along the edge of a field of tall oil-seed rape to reach the location of the trig point accordiing to my GPS, but I could find no trace of it. There is a possibility that it is within the fiedl of oil-seed rape, which was tall and could just about have obscured a trig pillar. I did not want to trample crops, so definitely one to return to in autumn or winter.
