Hi Brian
Each pillar has a plate with an OS reassigned reference, which is easily  on the ground verifiable. I believe that we should be using that rather than those randomly assigned by a 3rd party site of unknown origin. 

For example Titterstone Clee is 2943, which I can't remember if I added it.
