Was a little unsure of how to get to this one initially. Parked up at the roadside but couldn't find a route in without going through someone's garden/school grounds but then I read a log mentioning coming in from the canal path side. Brought the car round and got parked up and set off down the canal path. Got to the gate and it soon became clear that the pillar was at the top of a small rise in some trees so set off for a look. The pillar is in good condition and interesting to see the cross and triangle marks on the top of it.

Strange that this one doesn't have a flush bracket. headed through field with horses and over electric fence and wall and then to the trig. No gorse...all nice and clear.

Looked very close to the road but a few obstacles in the way, got there in the end. Another Vanessa in the bag.

Easier to get to that I thought, despite the electric fences! Most of the gorse at the top has gone and the pillar now mainly has a few assorted brambles for company. Has the standard Great Glen Project markings on the spider. Position logged from 4 GPS readings taken over 15 minutes. Full details and photos to follow...

There was no easy way to this one so had to jump an electric fence twice then battle through the hated Gorse to get there. No visible damage from afar but as Sagina nivalis mentioned below there are a lot of small surface cracks that can be seen closer.

Flippin Gorse everywhere

Described by OS (via Rod Sladen) as a Brander, on isolation above old railway cutting, NH374089 (Gravel mound with 1ft boulders). Effectively a cylindrical pillar (Vanessa) built without FB, apparently built directly into the ground, with no square plinth such as is used for Station P (the other Brander found to date), although there could be a buried plinth. The whole mound / outcrop is covered in gorse, broom and a few trees. The area is easily identified by an obvious band of Scots pines NW side of road, although the pillar is approx 100m NW of main road. Between a paddock and a playing field, just N of a tatty restaurant. Pillar fully intact, but network of shallow cracks. The usual asphalt-type plug. Forgot to check spider for the usual Great Glen Project markings (double triangle and cross) - none evident from my photo. Grid ref estimated from 1:25k map: GPS reading needed.
