Large layby due S on the A1079, short walk along a farm track to the pillar, with the Market Weighton ROC Monitoring Post adjacent. Centre cap gone, replaced with a composite disc; rear sight hole open. Extensive views, N & E good. Had to nip back to the car for a torch to explore the ROC post.

A nice convenient lay by is awating all visitors to this trig and even the gate opens easily. It's hardly worth taking the Sat Nav down off the windscreen and hiding it s you are back in the car in five minutes (but I did).
