Parked at start of a RoW at 90deg bend in road to NE. RoW initially then field boundaries, then tractor lines through a barley crop to trig. Big patch of some leafy weed unknown to me was completely obscuring the pillar, but easy to clear it away with secateurs. Original top cap has been retained, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes open. 360deg views, better to S & SE to Isle of Harty.

Drove up and parked at Shurland Cottage to NW with intention of asking permission. No one home

Tough old walk out from Sheerness to Warden along the coast below the landslips. Took in the island highpoint too before retreating back to Queenborough for a timely train home.

Looks like the best approach is from the footpath to the North then left at first field junction then right at the next - Pillar is located in field to left of that field edge unfortunatley the field is currently full of 5 foot high wet Oil Seed Rape, which would be virtually impossible to get through - GPS suggests it is 130m out in the field, felt tresspassy too - will return. Certainly Inaccessilbe at the moment.

Started along footpath, then felt brave and struck off left across two fields of young crops. Probably wouldn't have attempted if the ground had not been so dry.

Parked in pub car park on Warden Road. After following footpath had to cut across ploughed field to get to pillar. Farmer working in adjacent field so had to surreptitiously approach this one. Pillar in very good condition with FB, cap & OS plaque present. Nice views

According to GPS go within 200m but will have to come back when the fields have been harvested.

Near enough the highest point on the Isle of Sheppey (there is a spot height 1 metre higher close by). Views to Kent in the south and Essex to the north. Our resolve almost failed when it came to visiting this one as it is in the middle of agricultural land with no public rights of way. Fortunately our local trig point guide, Julie from Faversham, had more steely resolve and we eventually reached it after negotiating wheat fields, barbed wire fences and freshly cut oil seed rape. There was a makeshift flag next to the trig which must have been put there by the farmer so that he wouldn't hit it accidentally whilst cutting the rape. GPS plaque, plug with indented lettering.
