Parked at a field gate 80m or so NE along minor road from pillar. Muddy cattle pasture. Pillar sits on a raised field boundary between b/w stock fencing and is being consumed by gorse, thorn and bramble. Cut back some of it to get a FB shot - FB faces SW, I'd approached from the NE. Original top cap retained, indented lettering; rear sight hole open, RHS plug degrading. Extensive views.

Positioned high up on a bank (could be in Devon) protected by new stock fencing and gorse. Had to walk along the road and through the field then retrace my steps and do the same in the next field. Luckily both fields empty.
