Next to a stile on a footpath between the back of the school and Field Farm. It looks short as if it has been pushed down into the ground. Perhaps it has sunk because the earth is soft or the ground around it has gradually raised up. Fortunately the FB is completely visible, slightly dug out. Good views to the south across flat countryside.

First of three on way home from a day at Tattershall Castle. Parked in the housing estate and up the path next to number 29. There is now a gap in the fence so this path is open. Easy and quick walk to the trig. Even the missus came out the car for this one. Itchy.

Because I left along Metheringham Fen Ln from Tanvats (the last trig) I think I went the long way around to get to this one. But it is a lovely day and I even went over a railway line where you have to phone the signaler to check it is safe. Just before you get to Billinghay there is a FP sign that takes yo straight to the Trig, behind some houses on a fence line between two fields. Trig is all in good order.

(377) A nice and easy one, which is always good. Parked up down West Street, which lies directly opposite the start of the PRoW on Fen Road. Followed that for the 6 or so minutes it takes to walk to the Pillar. Non original plug, and the FB required a little bit of digging out, but nothing major. Pillar history: Built on the 7th of October 1948, at a cost of £8 13s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in May of 2001.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked at the east end of the footpath on which the pillar is situated - the school looks to have been demolished. A simple walk allong the footpath brought us to the pillar at the side of a stile. Appears to be in good condition but has possible sunk a bit since construction. The original plug has gone it is protected from the weather with a concrete replacment.

Using a slightly out-of-date Landranger map I decided to try accessing the trig from the ‘end’ of Field Road. It was obvious the housing estate had recently been expanded so I parked up and took a quick walk round using GPS to head in the general direction. This brought me to a grassy gap between two houses which was fenced off at the end, less than 50m from the trig. Frustrated I set off back to the B1189 and parked beside the last house in the village. From here I walked into the field and 400yds across the grass behind the houses to the trig. The pillar is just on the west side of a wooden fence, at the end of a short N-S hedge, and is in good condition with a tarmac plug. The flush bracket is partially buried but thankfully no digging was required to read the number. All sightholes are below ground level. Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

The area around here has been developed in the last year or so. As a result the OS is a bit out and I had to head in from the school end of the public footpath.The local farmer I talked to told me that the tracks marked are private and will remain closed even when the houses are finished.The pillar is easy to find and in good condition even though it is a bit low in the ground.

My 200th TP location visited, but not a very inspiring one. This one may be lost to another phase in housing development. The FB was reasonably clear of soil. I forgot to log a GR for this one.

A partially-buried pillar between two arable fields on a public path behind some new housing development. I still had to dig out the flush-bracket so, after what others have said, this must disappear very quickly! There is an asphalt plug and all the sightholes are below the soil. No paint. Disturbed two large hares in the field on the way to the pillar which was nice to see. Lovely views to the N/NE/E across the Fens.

Apparent shortness of pillar is actually a result of its partial burying in earth ! I had to scrabble in the soil to find the FB number.

Another one we drive past on a regular basis. Thought we aught to check it was still there as there is some housing developments in the area. Yes it has survived, but it is partially buried. Had to dig the flush bracket out to photo. No sight holes visable, and a tarmac plug. Nothing to say about the view, just miles and miles of Lincolnshire countryside.
