(63) Parked up just over the bridge on the pathway/ROW entrance. The pillar can be found easily from the roadside. Look for the grit container, and the telegraph pole. Hedgerow is quite open near the pillar, so climbing inside isn't too bad. A good complete pillar in a usual setting.

Last of three trigs on way back from Horncastle. Used hand drawn map along meandering lanes up from the A158 to Wickenby and thanks to previous logs found the trig stuck in bushes at the railway bridge. No views.

The problem with trigs hiding in hedges is the hedges will try to defend the trig from all visitors. Need to buy an hardhat.

A revisit after 8.5 years, but I should have waited another 0.5 as summer isn't the best time to visit this one. The pillar appears to be in good condition but I wasn't able to stand at it to observe the top.

It's there but not too easy to locate. A joint visit with Carole. Our initial approach was to go over the fence beside the bridge. Pillar can then be located in the hedge but it is above you. From the road it is behind the telegraph pole but well hidden in hedge. Be prepared to get scratched to get the flush bracket details.

Easy access parked over bridge on roadside. to reach trig climbed over fence to see FB care needed over dumped bricks? overgrown in hedgerow.

easy enough to find but abit of nightmare to get to, ended up climbing over the fence and down and back up the bank and still never got within touching distance.

It is evident having read the previous logs that the seasons make a lot of difference when accessing trigs. At this time of year the trig was still easily visible from the road though the flush bracket took a little more stealth to access.

This TP is located close to the Lincoln - Grimsby railway line, and along the lane to Wickenby is the Broadbent Theatre, founded by the father of actor/film star Jim Broadbent. Grid ref to 10 metres only.

S4915 I didn't note the FB number when I visited, relying on the photo to reveal it. Zooming in on my 1 MB original confirms S4915.

Buried in the undergrowth. The FB No is definitely S4915 {S4315 is Roeshot Hill at SZ192944}. Plug with indented lettering.

This pillar is quite hard to find as it is buried in a hedge, on a bank betweeen a railway line and a bridge. It is also quite hard to get to as there are brambles around it. Not the best pillar to get to by far.

I remember visiting this sometime in June 1990. The road bridge had two metal prongs sticking out of it and we wondered if it had originally been placed on the bridge parapet?
