Nice walk to the Column, if you are interested in the History of the area this is a good place to visit along with all the other follies in the area.

RMBC should be ashamed to be responsible for this crumbling unmaintained ruin .No maintenance or grass cutting. Dog poo and litter all over. Disgusting

Seen from miles away but the last few yards are difficulty from the main road. Very clearly neglected for decades. Maybe too late to save. Shame.

I live over the road from it and it isn't a travel to see it kind of place. More a if your passing. It does sit in stunning fields and next to Scholes woods so perfect for dog walkers or ramblers

This is perfect for taking the dog for a walk and the views are phenomenal. It's worth reading the history of Keppels Column on the plaque. It's so peaceful up here.

Interesting local landmark, worth a visit if you're passing, but not really worth a specific trip to see it. Not a lot to do there other than look at the outside of the column, as others have said, you can't access the inside or go...More

A column in a pretty serene area. Unfortunately not open to the public but worth a look if you're in the area. We were driving past on our way home so thought we'd stop by. It was a bit tricky getting to it this time...More
