This pillar was removed from the farmer's field, with permission, some time after April 2003. In Jan 2006, it was put up for auction on Ebay. Naturally this caused a bit of fuss, with the result that the farmer was told by the OS to cancel the auction and destroy the trigpoint. I didn't want to see another trigpoint destroyed, even at the behest of the OS, so I contacted the farmer. Several phone calls later, I had his agreement to come and collect the trigpoint. (David, 3, was a bit scared when the tractor came straight for him, but was consoled by getting to climb into the cab and play with the controls!) There followed an interesting drive with the trigpoint perched on top of an old, borrowed trailer. We broke down on the M1 and needed a very nice man from the RAC, then later got stopped by the police... "Let me guess, sir, you got it on Ebay?" "Yes! How did you guess?" "We see a lot of strange things, sir, and most of them are from Ebay". Getting the trigpoint off the trailer was no less eventful, but due to the superb driving skills of the JCB man, it was installed without breaking anything or anyone. So, now that I have a trigpoint in my garden, does that mean I have to shout "get off my land" to anyone I see visiting it?! ;-)

Got to within 30m of where the GPS was pointing, but if it's still there, it's in someone's back garden. I couldn't see it through the fence, although the light was fading and the garden in question is heavily landscaped. Very soggy and hard going to get through the wood behind the houses, especially in the dark. By the time I escaped I was fed up, and cursing the guy who introduced rhododendons to this country !

Small world! It was us who visited this trigpoint just a few days before Walker Dan. We actually visited it twice... We quickly gave up on the first visit and drove to the nearest garden centre to buy a 7.5m tape measure. With the aid of the OS sketch map, we found the approximate location, then by systematically digging the point of my walking stick into the turf, managed to locate something metal beneath the grass. Digging down an inch or two uncovered a slightly larger than usual Berntsen. We'd never have found it without the tape measure!

The observatory tower is currently being rebuilt and is surrounded by scaffolding. We spoke to the owner (caretaker?) who was very friendly and explained the situation, plus a little of the building's history. If anyone's particularly keen to investigate this trigpoint, it may be possible to arrange a viewing by arrangement (though the contact details are not listed on the OS site). The reason for the repair work is that both the roof and floor have sprung leaks, which is causing damage to the stonework, so the contractors would have to be contacted before any access could be granted by the owners.

Popped by on my way home. Got told off for being there by one of the local rangers, as the moor is private land, managed for the Duke of Devonshire's grouse shoot. This area will, however, be opened up as part of the "Right to Roam" act. It seemed ironic that the National Park, who owe their very existance to public protests against shooting land being defended against access by the riff-raff, should now be the ones doing the defending! However, right up until the time when new legislation forces them to allow access, they're "just doing their job". Oh to live in Scotland!

We were down in Hampshire for the HCC geocaching event, so we just had to make a detour to find this unique trigpoint! The benchmark is not the splodge of white paint on the removable manhole cover, but rather the centre of the scratched cross on the outside edge. Speaking to an OS surveyer at the cache event, it's possible that the splodge of white paint was put there for aerial surveying purposes (or it could just mark the vicinity of the benchmark!) The middle of the cross seems to have been further dented using a centre-punch. Perhaps this is why it's called a "centre"?

The manhole cover
The one and only...! The benchmark is the centre of the scratched cross in the top-left of the photo.
