Verge parking (TF 3514 7431). RoW to Willow Bank Wood (TF 3527 7392), then field boundaries to the trig. Farmer came up by chance when I was there - very unhappy with me being there. We had a civilized chat, he asked that future baggers request access at Somersby House Farm so they know who's on their land - health and safety, don't you know? Pillar sits just into light woodland. Original centre cap retained, lightly indented lettering; rear and RHS sight holes open. Some views E and S.

Short diversion from a circular walk. Permission happily given by farmer and he pointed in the right direction which was easier than we were intending. Go to corner of field on public footpath and then divert up the hill passing the bales on the right. Trig sits in corner of trees and easy to find.

(154) Parked up in Somersby opposite the Church, and then walked the short distance to the start of the ROW. About half way up at Wardenhill Farm I caught sight of some folks, so asked about visiting the pillar. One chap didn't know what I was referring to, but the other guy did, and permission was given. A good walk all told to get to the pillar, which is pretty much hidden in the woodland. Of interest is the Church (as well as the village itself) and it's connection to Tennyson, so these was explored on the way back to my car. Pillar history: Built on the 22nd of June 1938, at a cost of 22 8s 8d. Last maintained by the OS in February of 1981.

Second of two trigs to see uni mate, and an interesting one it turned out to be. Parked in Somersby outside church opposite a strange house looking like a castle. Inside the church found out the poet Tennyson was born in the white house opposite and brought up in the village. Walked up the bridleway to the trig and asked at Wardenhill Farm for permission to go off path to it and it was readily given. Farmer said on a clear day you could see north Norfolk and the 'Flats', i.e. the Wash. Views got surprisingly better as approached the trig, but mist stopped sight of Norfolk. A good trig!

I parked on Hardens Lane to the N and took the bridleway up the hill, then cut across on first a path, and then a farm track, to reach the wood. Some good views along the way. Pillar is easily visible as you approach, just inside the treeline.

This may, depending on accuracy of records, have been my 3000th non-missing trig.

A pleasant stroll from the other end too. Metalwork still intact. Crossed the path of an owl in flight, a real bonus.

A pleasant walk up the bridleway from Somersby on a still and sunny January afternoon. To reach the TP involves leaving the bridleway on a well-defined field access track at TF351737. Good views to the east and south. GR to 10m only.
