Another horizontal pillar, not one for months then two in one day. Unchanged since the last log except perhaps surrounded by more stones dumped by the farmer. No metalwork remaining.

Easy walk up the PROW from the Worksop Rd - parked on Doles Ln. Upper two thirds of Pillar still remain laying beside base. Trig pillar plundered for its assets. Very foggy morning so unable to appreciate any views the remains of the pillar had to offer.

Very damaged/mostly toppled. FB and spider missing. Bolt remains. Firework launching site. ROC station adjacent.

Whitwell possibly strictly speaking the mark is still usable as the bolt is still intact.

What a shame that this pillar has obviously been knocked over and broken with all metal work removed. But what the heck the concrete bits are still there and make a good seat on which to do the paper work. Joint visit with Carole. We just used the footpath from the road junction before branching off into the field. Field is under cultivation so only really accessible in the dormant season.

Somebody must have hit this Trigpoint very hard to cause this amount of damage – possibly with a JCB – lots of chiselling also required to remove the fittings. Looks as if there’s been a party here – wine and beer bottles scattered about.

Found not far from the road or footpath in the field. There are tracks straight to it. It has toppled and left the bottom in place. A sad affair.

Trig is toppled and broken; good views almost all round; nearby is a fenced-off compound which is the site of a Cold War underground nuclear war monitoring station, you can find details about it on the subbrit.org.uk website, cold war section, Royal Observer Corps database. There were 100's of these all over the UK which few people knew about. You can't get in, the lid is welded on! Went south to 531725.

Pillar broken off its base and lying on its side immediately adjacent. Metalwork all gone except Upper Centre still present, complete with spike. Visit thoroughly recommended for students of Triganatomy - construction details are easy to examine.
