Visit with Carole. Easy access and quite visible even though on private land. We parked on the road to the east where the track to the pillar joins it. Everything seems to be in good order and stillretains an original plug.

Along muddy farm track just outside village, easy to find. All metalwork intact. Good view over the estuary and of Humber Bridge in the distance.

I had intended to park in the entrance to the track and make the short walk up to the pillar but as I turned in, there was a huge farm implement; a harvester of some sort, thundering down the track towards me. I beat a hasty retreat and pulled off the road 100 yards or so north east of the entrance. The pillar is easily accessible but surrounded by stinging nettles at this time of the year. Itís complete with all itís metalwork and in good condition. There was some evidence that it had been painted white at sometime in the dim and distant past, now it was just weathered and dirty. There is a splendid view of the Humber suspension bridge to the east but today was a little hazy so it wasnít as good as it might have been on a clear day.

Spur of the moment visit, was almost dusk when we got there. Easily found but had to clear a mass of nettles to see the FB and squat underneath a fir tree to get a photo of it.

Plug intact; FB number is the 3rd lowest on pillars, I think. Located at corner of track with views of the Humber estuary and bridge.

Good views of the Humber today. The farmer stopped to chat as I was taking pictures. He could remember one previous visitor to the pillar. The previous farmer used the area by the pillar as a dumping ground; the current one cleared the area up and planted the trees so we must thank him for that.
