Found this just a short walk from it's sister trig to the West, although struggled to realise it at first as it has been snapped in half, the top laying north of the base. Based on the number of 5.56 blank firing shells scattered around, it's been providing cover for some of the army guys on the base during operations. The trig is complete with all the metalwork and brackets, they are just no longer all part of a single structure. Again, being outside of the immediate area of the Thor launch site, I worry this and it's sister trig will be lost during the mining and dwelling constructions. I'll try and keep an eye on them. Being not of OS trigs, I don't suppose there is any owner we can contact to raise the topic of their well being and protection? Jon.
Poor thing - broken in two! Very sad to see it in this state, it must have taken quite a whack to split it into two like this!
Flush Bracket on base part of trig Still firmly attached to the earth at the moment...
Two pieces of trig Looking east across the fallen trig
Thor launch pad three from Trig Not sure why the trigs are named North and South as they are East and West

With the impending doom and redevelopment of MOD North Luffenham I decided to visit the two project Emily trigs that are located on the old RAF Airfield. I know the Thor launch site has been granted a listed status and so is protected from the initial strip mining and subsequent construction into 3500 dwellings, but both of the trigs are a little distance away, so I'm not sure if they benefit from the same? Found the North trig without any problem, access was equally as easy and it was just a case of keeping clear of the model aircraft guys and trying to look un-phased by the scantily clad female sunbather. Trig is in pretty good condition, the top NW corner of it is crumbling away and you can see the construction of the spider exposed. Top is plugged and the OS letters on the ID plate have been chiselled off (although the O and S are still clearly visible). Jono
Damage to NW corner of trig Looks like to has taken a whack at some point in the past and the elements have down the rest.

Visited for logging Ye Ole Survey Monument YSM492. Explained the reason for my visit to the gate guard and after presenting my passport and a having my picture taken, a photo ID was created and I was escorted in a civilian spec Defender 110 towards the trig. I had to guide them the last couple of hundred feet as they weren't sure of it's location. Left on my todd to do what needed to be done, before being collected and escorted back off site. Trig in top condition - full set of iron work and although a bit moss covered, the white paint of a previously well cared for trig was evident. Views were of typical military buildings and equipment (missiles, tracked vehicles etc...) with a large metal water tower towards the north. Jon.

Did the Geocache on the other side of the lake and took a walk over to explore this Trig. Located in the middle of a Cairn and in good condition.

Found it and used it as a reference to find the Geocache that is within a short distance of it.

Spotted this one on my way to Hermits Hole and figured it would be rude not to take a look. Graffiti still adorning the trig I'm afraid to report - but otherwise still in good condition.

Looks like the farmer moved this one!!! It's now in the middle of his farm yard at the above co-ordinates! I took a wrong turning on a Geocache hunt and stumbled across this one!
Found it way nearly a kilometer away from it's correct location
