Up the track towards the mast, then a quick shimmy through the wood to the pillar. Found a lost and lonely sheep in the wood, so reported it to Corrieknowes Farm. who said they would contact the owner.

Quick visit from bottom of track, turn onto path next to mast - no need to enter farmers field as pillar on wood side of fence. Decent nick, very mossy! Asphalt plug, bit of concrete missing on top.

Parking as Beckroad. Took the track through the wood from the mast to the trig. The torrential showers have now turned to sleet and snow.

Roadside parking on B723 at Woodside ny182676. Headed north to track entrance. View of Chappel Cross power station to the NE. Another gate near to mast allows access to field and edge of plantation. Pillar located behind wire fence within the wood. Flush bracket faces south to Solway Firth. Pillar is well protected although the spider plug has been infilled. Splash of white paint still evident at base near the flush bracket.

Good track to mast from road from South-West. Took a man path from mast to trig, found a good path on the way back which more or less followed the fence line from trig to mast. Much easier return journey.

Edge of woodland. Parked roadside verge at access road to Corrieknowes Farm. Good farm track to mast, then nice little woodland track. Pillar looks a bit unloved, a lot of the top screed has gone; an asphalt plug replaces the centre cap; LHD side sight hole open, front plug deteriorating. Some limited farm views to S.

Parked in a small parking bay just past the pylon lines to the south of the track. Walked back up the road and the mostly dry track, from which the pillar is easily spotted. Slight damage to top as previously reported; asphalt cap, and one sight-hole open.

Slightly damaged pillar at edge of a small wood. Pillar substantively good with spalling to the top screed. Good day for having 4x4 on the car as the farm road up to it was a waterfall of liquid mud.....FB faces south-ish with no obvious open sightholes. Cap missing but asphalt plug present. Probably good views but not in today's torrential rain.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there in the condition described.

On the edge of woodland, watchout for the electric fence. The wood usefully hides Chapelcross "Power Station". Plenty of gorse in bloom.
