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.

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 to the top.

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 of year though with the mud!

If you want a bit if peace and quiet go here as there is absolutely nothing else except the column - ok if you happen to be jogging past but wouldn't make a special trip

I love keppels coloum. There is nothing there but the coloum, but I have spent many an hour sitting near to it - watching the world go by. Lovely views of the countryside and wentworth estate from here.
