In a rough area at side of access road to farm, brick bats etc stewn around. Pillar damaged and neglected with height tag gone. Protective railings gone, the old concrete posts standing sentinel. A sad little pillar just hanging on in there. Photo at:

Found location thanks to other logs, but it is completely covered this time of year I could just make out the top edge, so gone with others as far as condition goes.

Thick brambles making it awkward to get a close look.
