Parking by Catholic school to W of trig. Followed golf course boundary (path not shown on my 1:25k map), then directly up the hill. Trig in muddy arable field just off Icknield Way. A roughly cast pillar sits on a decaying 2-stage breeze-block plinth. Top edges badly chipped; cap missing, residue of an asphalt plug evident; all sight holes open. Generally looking a little sorry for itself. Panoramic views make up for it though.

Dropped lad off at Luton Airport and decided to bag a couple of trigs on the way home. Parked on Warden Hill Road and took footpaths up the the hill next to the golf course and turned north on the ridge. Trig is easy to find and accessible over what seems a purpose made access point in the barbed wire fence in to the field where the trig is. Views q.good (for Luton) from the top. The hill is quite dramatic in itself, rising well above the surrounding area. On to Marsh Farm trig.

Straightforward access from W. Some flakes of snow in the air, and bitterly cold. The field was stubble, so no problems, but clearly access from the weeden portion of the fence is weel used.

Pleasant day bagging Higham Gobion trig, walking up and over Deacon Hill and Warden Hill (10 miles) and bagging trig from hell in Marsh Farm, Luton. Nice views over lovely lovely Luton.

No views today - thick mist. Easy access via bridleway and footpath. The pillar's field is seperated from the foopath by a wire mesh and barbed wire fence except at nearest point where there's a wooden section .

Nice little walk up from carpark at the base - good views of luton and the airport (if you like that sort of thing) - Good condition - in crops with a path to pillar - big storm brewing!!

"Slightly Damaged" in that the top plug is missing. Otherwise in fairly good condition.

Easy walk up along the edge of the golf course then across a wooden crossing fence and straight to the trig on a little path though the crop. "Nice" view of Luton on one side and open land on the other

A great view of Luton from here, the trig is currently standing in amongst a wheat field, makes it a nice setting. It's also used as part of a geocache which is close by.

It is surprising that such a nice location could be found so near to Luton. The pillar ias easy to access as a footpath runs close by.

Remember coming up here sometime during University holidays on a cold day. I'm not sure views over Luton really make this a recommended day out. I think the houses have advanced nearer in the intervening years.
