(610) Stopped by Babworth Farm to seek permission to visit. Was informed that the landowner was currently away in New Zealand, but having a closer look at the pillar wouldn't be a problem. Parked up just passed the field entrance way. All good. The FB is on the LHS of the hedge, which meant I had to crawl through the hedge to get to it.

Walked north along minor road to first W to E hedgerow after leccy pylons then 120m along line of hedge. Trig is in good condition in the hedgerow. Rolling views of fields all round with power stations clouds on this cold, clear day.

Visible and easily accessible. Parked in field entry and walke along hedge line to reach pillar. Now well and truely part of the hedge which will be a good protection for the future. Pillar in good condition and has original plug.

parking next to field and straight up to trig, this was number 11 this afternoon all surrounding Retford, seems to be trigs everywhere you turn.

Still some carrots left but a bit ropey now so gathered only water on my legs :-) First for the day after a meeting with UK Coal.

In a hedgerow about 100 yards off the lane, between a field of parsnips and a newly-harvested carrot field. Fortunately, the harvester had left the odd carrot or two lying on the surface, so it's carrots for lunch tomorrow! Why can't pillars be on the side of asparagus fields??.... It's all intact with the original plug - slightly-indented letters. Traces of paint visible. All sightholes below soil level. Again, a good view of the east-coast main line from here.
