Easy access, just a little way off from the RoW in the middle of a cowfield - happily for me, no cows today. Plateau-like panoramic view.

I walked up from Scalford but one field did not have the footpath remarked across it after ploughing and planting. Fortunately, it was not too muddy. The pillar stands in another grassy field that the footpath passes through, so access was easy. However, I nearly took the wrong footpath for my return as another one enters the same field. Good views.

Joint visit with Carole. We parked in the gateway near the allotments to the west and then just walked up the Mowbray Way to the pillar. In middle of field just off the footpath. In good condition and still retains an original indented letter plug.

Walked up from Scalford through sheep field. Still only half light on arrival at TP, so didn't initially see Buzzard which was sitting on it ! A 'tall' TP, with original metalwork. E view dominated by Waltham on the Wolds TV mast.

Collected the nearby Geocache then off to get the trig pillar. It's in a commanding position with excellent views over Lincolnshire and Leicestershire and easily accessible near the junction of two footpaths. It stands on a slight hump in a pasture field and is obviously a gathering point for livestock. The one corner of the top face has a deep crack in it. Original plug - slightly indented letters. Faint traces of paint. S sighthole open. Super views! Good spot.

On holiday close by in Scalford, so strolled op to this via the Mowbray walk. Easy walking, very little height gain and in the middle of field full of cattle.

Nearby Scalford has two pubs and plenty of space to on road park. It is a gentle stroll up the hill on footpaths to the trig but the immediate vicinity/view is not spectacular. Scalford church stands out.
