Not visible as it's apparently buried beneath the trig pillar, hence marked as inaccessible. The url referred to in tom's comment below gives more details.

8 out of 10 for historical significance. As others have said no sign of the cannon which is meant to be buried beneath the pillar or nearby.

As tom says, the cannon is said to be buried under the pillar - so condition logged as Inaccessible.

The 3 metre cannon is apparently situated directly under the triangulation pillar. It was protected by the concrete kerb in 1935 when the pillar was built on top. It is surrounded by a small triangular earthwork; on aerial photos it resembles the OS trig pillar symbol used on maps. This is the first trig pillar I have come across that has achieved listed structure status. Although the cannon clearly isnít visible I confidently assume that it is still in good condition underneath its 20th century upgrade.
