(624) Parked up at the RSPB reserve, and walked the coastal path to the pillar. Took about 25/30 minutes each way. Incredibly misty to begin with, but that soon cleared. A brilliant walk with stunning views. Pillar not really visible until you are pretty close to it. OS plaque present, and the plug is non original.

Left bike at Speeton church and followed footpaths. Although you can see the high point on the cliffs all the way up, the pillar is hidden from view until very close by. Weather completely different from the previous visitor, a friend "What's the Point" - hot and sunny. 360 panorama - well worth the walk.

The church car park in Speeton is the closest place to park. A small donation in the box is all thatís asked. From there, itís about half a mile downhill to the Coast Path. A gentle climb of another mile and a quarter will take you to the pillar, perched on the obvious high point. It was bright and sunny as I enjoyed the walk; I never saw another soul all the while I was out. As I reached the pillar, I looked back the way Iíd come and saw that the rain had crept up behind me and I was obviously going to get very wet on the way backÖ. Bummer! The pillar is missing itís centre plug and some of the cement screed on the top but apart from that, itís not in bad condition considering itís exposed location. It carries the usual second OS plaque indicating that itís now a Ďpassive stationí. As one would expect, the view over Filey Bay is excellent. The inland view is relatively flat farmland. It did indeed rain on the way back but my waterproof jacket kept most of it at bay. I did use the little church to change my wet trousers for a dry pair when I got back to the car, though. Another quid in the box should keep big G happy.

The pillar is sited between a fieldside footpath and the edge of the cliffs; it has peeling white paint, an asphalt plug, an OS GPS plate, and FB S6326; a thin layer of concrete is missing from a top corner of the pillar. The site was reached from cliff top footpaths from the car park next to Speeton Church. The coast to the north can be seen to beyond Scarborough. Inland the North York Moors are on the northern horizon but the countryside in the vicinity is the large flat upland fields of the Yorkshire Wolds. Peering over the cliff edge reveals seabirds circling below. The cliffs are part of the Flamborough Head SSSI and Heritage Coast for their geology and wildlife.
