Pillar has been drilled and has been used to hold pipe fencing in the past. Though this has no fallen into disrepair.

Relatively easy to get to from the road name Aston Grange. Through a gate at the side of Grange House and straight up to the trig. Holes have been drilled into the pillar at some stage to fit some sort of pipe fence, but these have mostly rusted away now. See pic. But the plug is intact, although I am marking it as slightly damaged due to the vandalism.

Parked on the minor road to the south west of the pillar near Pear Tree Lodge. Took the public right of way, and climbed over two stiles into the field where the pillar is located. Walked north east across the field up to the pillar. A very strange pillar which forms part of the boundary of the field, as two poles which make up the fence go through the body of the pillar itself.

In field boundary but open, hedge very sparse. Integrated into metal fencing. Base partly buried but in good condition OS plug with lettering. Within field complex, easy route up track close to road.

An interesting pillar with the integral fence tubes. Wasn't sure about the "preserved Land No Trespassing" notice, but for this trig point there is no need to deviate from the track.

FB partially buried in soil. Presumably the fence is older than the pillar, as the rails pass right though it. pillar installed in 1945. Fence looks quite old too, so may have been installed at same time or per-date the pillar.

A relatively straight forward visit and find although one has to trespass onto preserved land. All this entails is following the tractor track from the road, where I parked, to the pillar. Looks to be in good condition although I wonder whether the rail that it is used to support passes through the pillar. Some nice rural views

Novel pillar this, with the fence poles passing right through it. That must have been more trouble than it was worth surely? Easy access from the road, via path beside the house. Parked by the cycle route fingerposts. No fences to scale.

well after 174 trig logs I was accosted for the first time. I had been a bit on the cheeky side, so I was not surprised. I had reversed off the road to turn around, and knowing it was only 250 ft away I jumped out of the car and dashed to the trigpoint. Just as I was taking a photo I looked back to the car and could see a lady standing by it. I rushed back and apologised for parking in her field. She was very nice about it :o)
