Mrs Dusty was not at all pleased. Crawling amongst the trees. Sox thought it great fun as did I. We took direct route from forest entrance which was not on hindsight the best bet. We returned via fields to Mrs Dustys relief.

Parked on minor road to SW then up field beside conifer plantation. Climb into dense forest opposite rogue conifer in field before you reach highest point of field. Head in at right angles to gain trig.

Top damaged. Metal plug [raised letters]. Trig well hidden in private forest [UPM Tilhill], but easily [& painlessly] found by following Glaslyn's instructions below - these are precise & accurate [except rope now gone]. Amazing place.

Gets a 9 only because I found it! Tried the obvious approach from the N, but after 30 minutes crawling around (literally) in the Stika and getting very frustrated I retreated to the car. Then decided to give another go. Easy option follows: Take track from minor road junction at approx SH963597, follow track for approx 400m, branch left then follow to high point. Path crosses a gravelled turning area with a rope strung above. 25ft past this there is a break in the trees ( only 1 treeline wide) at (logged) SH 96982 59600. Follow this break to the N for 200 m which leads to a clearing. Cross diagonally then push through 20ft of trees to acees clearing with pillar. I hate these and have nightmares about getting lost in the forest with no one looking for me....dont do what I do make sure someone knows where you are !Glad its one less forest one to confront.Pillar is good and protected.

Metal cap, small raised letters. Top damaged. Much easier to find on 2nd visit, 70m into spruce, in ~40m clearing

Good luck to anyone heading this way. You are going to encounter arboreal hell. Keep pushing the sitka/grovelling and you may find the clearing with the normal intact concrete pillar.
