Ive been trying to get inside here for years (without a crowbar) Bank holiday Monday and it presented itself. It was permission, visit with my daughter and the dog. It saved me sneaking around for a change, hope you enjoy report as much as I did getting in. Some history for you taken from interweb The Pillar is in North Lincolnshire on part of the Yarborough estate at Brocklesby, and is a viewing tower built to enable the earls to view the estate. It is 39 metres (128 ft) high and is guarded by two stone lions at the door. It is said that, when it was built, everything that could be seen from the top belonged to Charles Anderson-Pelham. The pillar was erected to commemorate the planting of the surrounding woods by Charles Anderson-Pelham Lord Yarborough who started planting in 1787. Between that year and 1828 placed on his property 12,552,700 trees. The foundation was laid by his son in 1840 and his grandson finished the building in time for Prince Albert's visit in 1849. Total spend came to Â£2,395 4s.3d. It was given a Grade two listed status in 1 November 1966. On with the images. Not to everyone's interest, but im enjoying getting these local explores ticked off.
