Not as badly overgrown as some I've seen. Cleared a lot of nettles from inside the playpen. Pillar itself in good condition, height tag still present - 264.83ft. Photos at:

Railings somewhat dented by road traffic, but pillar itself looks sound inside its protective forest of nettles! Spent rather longer here than I intended. as my car decided to lock my keys in! :-(
