Another revisit. The adjacent field now has a crop of potatoes. No change to the trig condition - hooks protruding with two flattened and one broken. Centre plug with an extra hole implying that it may have been removed then replaced upside down. Extensive views SW from the road.

Pillar is easily accessible and highly visible. I parked in a street to the west near the Fire Station and followed a small right of way path then a dog walking path up the field through some crops. This took me directly to the gateway onto the track which is opposite the pillar. Views from this relative high point somewhat restricted. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug - just.

Log #30. (102m). By car. 50m walk from lane into field behind Garforth Cliff resr. Excellent view over Garforth and beyond. Very difficult photographing FB plate as its up against the fence. Please note the word MONUMENT on the plaque, and the warning that it is an offence to damage it. Why are these plaques not placed on every single Pillar around the UK? Join my crusade to have ALL trigs declared National Monuments with rights of access.

Wow, some of these logs are a bit negative. OMG-started out in Cas then crossed the Aire rail bridge (don't do it kids) followed the old railway line up from Allerton Bywater and Kippax to arrive at Garforth to ascend the cliff! for the uninitiated this trig gives one of the best views in Yorkshire, across to the Pennines west, south of the Aire Gap, and on this day a fantastic view of the snow covered Wolds to the East. What a trig!

Didn't venture down the lane. Turned right at the lights and 2nd right. There is a footpath which runs behind the flats here. At the opposite end of the field to where I parked gives access to the fields. After following foot prints in the snow I found the trig in the adjacent field.

Field or road, take your choice - I'd meandered on foot from the nearby Hook Moor trig through the housing at Garforth to reach the field path to the east which was very muddy today (loads of rain lately) - but came down the access road from the water tower\radio mast (to the A63) and can't see any problem walking up\down the access road really. The trig's in the field just to the north of the water tower (apologies as I couldn't get it in a photo as the sun was directly behind it at the time of my visit). Note : the radio mast isn't shown on my 2000 OS map.
