Here they are:


Thanks.

TP25780 Buckingham http://trigpointing.uk/trig/25780

The details on bigf include
Stainless steel pole
Height of the Monument : approx 0.55m above top bracket
Monument Foundation : Steel frame/metal cladding
Additional Information : Antenna is approx 6m above ground level


The grid ref puts this on the N side of A421, storage shed next to, maybe part of, Buckingham Golf Club.


TP25781 Stone http://trigpointing.uk/trig/25781

Monument Description : Stainless steel pole
Height of the Monument : approx 0.7m above top bracket
Monument Foundation : Brick wall
Additional Information : Antenna is approx 6m above ground level


This one is on SE side of the B5026, a modern single-storey brick building, part of
a golf driving range. Google maps shows a TV aerial but couldn't spot the active
station; a more recent addition I assume.

Maybe this suggests that the OS surveyor for these two stations had a great excuse
for playing golf during working hours :)

Visited Stone last Thursday, it is on the side of a building at a golf driving range, no problems with driving into the car park and parking next to it.
