The bulk of the toppled pillar lies about a metre to NE of the replacement. There are at least 5 large concrete chunks identifiable as part of the old pillar lying in close proximity.

toppled doesn't really tell the story. There's one chunk which is the lower half of the pillar then a few other pieces lying close by. it's probably all here but I'm not a jigsaw person.. what a view.

The walk is all the more worth it when you get two bags for the price of one!

Retro entry as I did not log on my original visit Long Crag and Whitelyne Common Parked bottom of the track near Caldslope and walked towards Crew cutting across field just before the trees, found a quad track which skirted round Crew Crag and took me right up next to Long Crag which was very helpful as visibility was poor due to low cloud, decided to go on to Sighty using compass headed NE following wall-fence over Stantling and on to Sighty, A magical island in a sea of heather mooreland with large boulders and firm ground this is a very remote quiet place with big skies the cloud had now lifted and the sun shone,Tranquillity personified well worth the effort my favourite Trig to date Toppled old pillar lying nearby, returned by the same route taking in all the views missed due to the earlier cloud stopping of at Long Crag to get a better photo, elderly farmer from Crew enquired if I had had a good day he seemed pleased on been told one of the best.

Walked across from the triangulation pillar at Black Knowe. Toppled pillar lying next to new one, couldn't see the flush bracket, could have been underneath.
