Travelling from west along A631 missed the turning to north just before descent to South Elkington. Fast traffic, being followed so turned in the village. Lane has a very faded no entry sign and notice saying no through road. Stopped about 100 metres south of the farm for pillar right next to the lane. Very convenient. Good views to west, none to east as it is against hedge. Spider and cap in place. Thereís a chip out of the top on the west side, having looked more closely at photographs.

Bagged on way to family day trip to Mablethorpe. Drove up the farm track road (tarmaced) to pillar. Good views and great weather. The family chose to stay in the car. Itchy.

As others, from the South. Canít say I noticed the slight damage, but it is pretty engulfed by hawthorn at the moment. Then on to North Elkington, and back by same route.

(43) Parked up on the main road lay by, which is directly opposite the lane leading to the farm, and the pillar. A good 10 minute walk, so plenty of time to take in the views. Easy to find, even though the hedge could do with a trim. Showing some slight damage, but otherwise all complete, and correct. Pillar history: Built on the 22nd of June 1939, at a cost of £4 11s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in January of 1981.

Parked in laybye on A631 , walked north along lane to Church top farm. The trig point is easy to find at this time of year. Then continued along lane to North Elkington.

Used lay by on road, walked up lane towards farm, found trig in hedge on the right just past gate to farm sheds. Views to E, of Louth church spire and wind generators near Mablethorpe.

As previous report. Parked in layby on main road and walked up farm track. Easy to find track with no entry signs but walkers welcome. Trig deep in hedge just before the farm.

Joint visit with Carole. Easily accessed being on a bridleway. We left the car at the road as the bridleway is also the farm drive and has prominent private notices. Even so no problem reaching the pillar which is quite well hidden in a hedge just at the entrance to the farm itself. Has obviously suferred some damage during hedge trimming but otherwise everything is in good order.

I pointed this one out to my walking group as we passed by, the W face, FB and top all quite easy to see compared to previous comments, probably because of recent hedge trimming. The top edge of the W face has been damaged, and the W face scored, all by machinery I suspect.

A very hot walk along the farm track from the north along melting tarmac! There's not much of the trig visible, only its base and flush bracket - the rest being hidden by the hedgerow.

A good view to the east including Louth's church tower can be seen from the farm access road on the way up from the A631, but less of a view at the TP. Some damage is apparent, probably from a hedge trimmer.
