Passed more dog walking vans to get to this trig. Seems to a very popular place for them. Easy climb up to trig and it has nice views all around. Saw pigs running free in the road on the way back to car. This will be last big trig hunting cycle this year because of knee and shorter days. Might try and mop up one or two that have escaped me, but otherwise they will have to wait until next season.

Got to this trig by going down track from A36. Loads of big lorries zooming down it. (A36 that is, not track) The track is a fave with dog walking companies. Saw 3 vans parked there. And had to be careful as some dogs were running free down the track. Trig has nice views.

Interesting one this. First I thought I wouldn't be able to get access to it as it is behind a fence in an allotment. But asked a bloke walking a dog about it and he said that he had an allotment in it and they were doing work to add 2 plots for disabled people and a toilet block. And he added there were 4 plots left, if i wanted one. As the builders had left the gates oven I was able to get to the trig.

Second of the day. Nice cycle through Gosport before the traffic gets bad. Lovely views over the Solent as I cycled to this trig. Ok, it was slightly better then the last one, Fort Rowner, as I could actually see this one. But Its behind two sets of fences with 24hour CCTV and NO Access signs. Spoke to a dog walker and he said it has been like this for years and there are no plans to do any work on it, at the moment. So I dont think anyone will be getting to this one anytime soon. Unless you know a friendly Coast Guard, as I did see one walking by the side of it.

I rang the house bell (its a bell on a chain) but no answer. After a little while the farmer, Graham, came out from one of the barns. While he was a little cold, he was willing to try and answer my questions on how he moved the trig. "Get a big JCB in and its easy. They aren't as heavy as you think", was his answer. He couldn't remember anything like the contractors name or how much it cost. He then allowed me to take some pictures of it. But it is a memorial to his grandparents so respect must be shown. Glad I was able to bag this one and get some useful info about how to move Trigs. The location for this trig has not been updated, so I have notified the website with the new coords (SP 11005 05026).

This is private, not that it matters. But if them gates are locked you wont be able to come this way!" He was quite friendly and wasnt really upset, just wanted me to know that I should really get to the trig by going the long way around from the cinema carpark.

Rather a late start for me today. Went along the canal to get to this FMB. Its right in the town centre and is surrounded by very well cared for pots with plants in and a lamppost. Maybe the FBM is scared of the dark? Good start to the day.

After bagging the last 4 by car, I thought that I better get on my bike to bag the next. For some reason I didn't do this last year, so as it is well within cycling distance, it was the target. Lovely early morning cycle along the Kennet and Avon Canal. While going up the road to Hannington the power cables above it made a very disconcerting crackling sound. Trig has been moved to edge of field. Quite easy to find. But it is in a very sorry condition. Spider gone and the FB has chip marks all around it. Lovely view to West. Good fun coming off down the hill. And got back home in time for "Pop Master" as well. :)

This trig has not only got a toposcope over its spider but, has been covered in brick work, so cant see FB. Not too sure why this was done.

Second of the day. Left Mrs and dog in car again. Went to clubhouse and spoke with Club Secretary Ryan, who gladly gave consent. As long as I was aware of golf balls, etc. He was very pleased that I asked permission and said that they got several visits a year. I took a short, direct walk, out of club house, up hill to 5th tee. Trig is very well cared for and has a lovely fresh coat of white paint. It was a quick visit as it looked like rain. Got back to the car and the napping Mrs, before it started to pee it down. M32 on the way home was very wet! How i love motorway driving in the pouring rain!

We were driving through Bristol, l so I took the chance to bag a couple of trigs on the way. This trig is now behind a new housing development but after reading the previous logs, I decided it was worth a try. Leaving the Mrs and Neptune the dog, in the car, I rang the bell of No19 and a bloke called Freddy answered the door. He and his partner were very friendly and kindly invited me in to their house. The trig is behind, not only their wooden fence, but a wire security one as well. It is also being eaten by the surrounding vegetation. I didn't fancy climbing over two fences. Even if the owners did offer to find me a ladder. The house has great views over Temple Meads Station and Bristol in general. At night it must be spectacular. Not too sure that the Mrs understood why I was so excited about bagging this trig (or any one, to be honest!)

I spoke with the building supervisor (in his yellow hard hat and sun glasses) to see if I could get access to this Trig, that is behind a temp fence at the moment. But he said "Not until the new school is finished, in May 2018". I asked what were the plans for it and if it was safe. He assured me that it was and when the school is finished it will be in a little conservation area, with a gate to access it. I asked if he knew about the historic importance of the Trig and he said that he did. He even said that he had had it surveyed and said that it was found to be slightly out of true. So I made do with a picture of it behind its protective fencing.

My plan here was to only see if I could get a picture of the Trig from the ROW that passes the other side of the airfields fence. As i know from other loggers that it in not easy to get access to. But I didnt have much luck. I had walked past the fir trees and couldnt see where the Trig was. So started to make my way back, when I saw a small hole in the fence, at ground level. Hmm.. I thought, "will i see if i can find the Trig?" And I crawled through it. Trig is next to disused runway near some trees that hide it from the fence line. It was in good condition but I didnt hang around. So took some pics and darted back under the fence.

The BW gets you withing 50m of the trig but then you have to hop over a barbwire fence and into, what looks like, a pheasant feeding station. There was a trailer , but no-one about. I then bashed around in the stingers and bracken trying to find it. I was about to give up as I couldnt see it anywhere and didnt want too much noise, when, if by magic, I saw it. It was in a small clearing. Glad this is the last one for today as took a bit of a lie down, once i got back to the bike.

By now I was completely soaked from head to toe. I cycled up the track to the house where there was a bloke angle grinding the gates in the rain. I asked if i could get access to the TP and he called over a woman. I think she must be the person others have called "the nanny". She wasnt too sure what i was after, but said i could come in and go anywhere in the garden. As i must have looked rather soggy, to say the least, i was quite surprised she was so accommodating. The ball on top of it has been moved and now there is only some stones on it, and the spider is now completely visible. The centre cap is missing. Still a rather strange colour green. No views except for the garden. Left via the front gate and said goodbye and thanked the bloke working on the gate. I do hope it stops raining or i will have a very soggy cycle home.

TP number 3. Its on Army land but no signs of action or anyone but other cyclists and dog walkers about. Except for the bit down the A30 the cycle was good. (at least that was down hill) Yet another rather boring TP in a woodland setting. No Views.

I really wanted to bag this one, as it is quite close to me and the views should be good. I read other people logs and know that it would be very Secret Squirrel. I worked out that probably the best way of getting there, with the least chance of bumping into anyone and staying away from any buildings, was to start in Whithurch Hill, just off the B471, on Goring Heath Rd. There is parking by the Sign saying The Chiltern Way Extension, if you need to drive there. I cycled, naturally. Note; the Wihtchurch Hill, is great to cycle down but not to climb up! Follow the Path heading East, past the houses and across the grass field through the gate saying, “This is a foot Path; No Bikes, Horses, etc” and on to the farm track way. Keep heading East for 1/10 mile and go down the Private track heading South. (You are now in Secret Squirrel Mode for about 0.6 of a mile!) At the end of this track follow the field edge on the south side heading towards the west. The field had crops in it but the boarder has been left as grass and had been cut, so was easy to follow. At corner of the filed head down hill towards the SE. There are loads of path ways into this wood and it is quite easy going. Heading SW cut down the wooded hill until you come out onto a set of grass fields. There were no animals in them. In a rather short distance there are 3 gates to cross until you get to the track coming up from Bozebown Farm. Carry on straight up through the second woodland and there is a gate at the top to get access to the field with the Trig Point in it. There is a bit of an animal track to follow along the edge of this filed that keeps you quite well hidden until you see the TP. The total distance from the carpark is about a mile. See JPG for path taken. I didn’t stay long but the views to the South, over the Thames Valley are quite good, even if it was overcast. Quite Please with bagging this one.

I wanted to find this TP as it is quite close to my GFs house. Very steep climb up to TP and its not easy tp find as it has Twenty Beeches planted around it for the Millennium. I found my KML file that i had loaded onto my Google Maps on my phone really useful here. Loads of stingers and glad the path made by THE KOSCIOWS a couple of days ago. Lovely views over Dumbleton on the way down.

As i was driving past this one i thought i would stop and bag it. Trust me to do it one a Speedway day so there were cars parked everywhere. Did find a quite side street just off the roundabout. The TP was easy to find but i was slightly concerned as the weather looked like it was going to rain and it was getting rather dark. I hoped for a lovely sunset but that wasnt to be. Good-ish views over fields but i dont know for how much longer as they are building new houses all round there.


Not a very good sunset

Hmmm probably better to try and get to this TP after harvest. I was able to find a tractor path that took me straight to the TP. But that was more luck then judgement as it was hard to spot due to the tall crop.

Cycled up byways from Chilton. This was the first TP that i tried to track down using only the app on my phone and its compass. I didnt look at the map at all. The TP is just off the Ridge Way so not too difficult to fine. Someone has put a blue rope on a branch of a tree near where the TP is. It is just in a field off the track by the edge of a fence. 5th and last TP of the day. Glad that i could just cycle down hill to Compton and the car. A good way to finish a days trig hunting!

Hagbourne Hill was closed so had to cycle up London rd to Harwell and then go up The Holloway and come from it from the opposite direction. There was someone in the drive to the house so i asked if i could go up the drive to the Trig point. He readily gave it and told me were it was. TP is in good condition and some nice views if weather was better. Quite a lot of vegetation had grown around it but was easy to clear it away.

Tried to get to this from the wrong direction. Followed the footpath from Aston Tirrold. And then thought about trying short cut up the side of the hill through gate. The hillside is covered in holes made by badgers and rabbits. Fell down about 4 before i gave up and went along until second gate that enter field with sheep in it. Still very slippy but easy walk to Trig Point. It now has a new fence in front of it so difficult to get good picture of bracket. The track down to Blueberry was much nicer. Def go that way if you are thinking of going there.

Cycled to it along Byways from Aldworth. Though it wasnt raining, vegetation was very wet and made me very wet. The views over Didcot and what remains of the power station would be very good if the weather was better. The pillar gets extra marks because of the plaque in memory of Peter Cowden MBE. Had loads of trouble trying to cycle down to A417 off the hill because of the slippy byways. The bit by the pig farm was the worse as it was all flooded. Got soaked getting through it.

Rather a lot of work to get to this "easy" Pillar. It is easy to find but is rather over grown and quite a lot of brambles to scratch you when fighting to get to it.
