The first pillar to get recapped. This revisit resulted in a PLA cap being fitted (and it actually fitted!).

Generally good condition pillar buried in a hawthorn hedgerow. Top surface damaged with spider a bit exposed. Cap missing and no plug. FB faces east-ish with all sightholes open. Reasonable, but limited, views.

Stuck in the flowering hedgerow, the cap is missing but the spider is certainly still in place and an overall good condition. FB on East side with three sights open (couldn't check the West sight).

Carmel Bank ..in the thick of it.
