A little bit wet and windy but a nice walk up to this pillar. The cows did not mind us. Once at the pillar the views opened up. Well worth the one mile round trip.

From mapped parking spot due S at Dry Bridge (although quite feasible to have driven to the trig). Pillar sits on a foot-high concrete plinth and has several fractues, some deeper than others, particularly either side of the FB. Original centre cap retained, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes open. Views limited by low cloud.

A shortish walk through the heather moor off the B3223. Very misty and the pillar appeared out of the gloom! However, on a good day this would be a super spot! It's all intact with the original plug on a super-strong concrete base. Many skylarks about and I heard a cuckoo as I parked the car.
