as with others eventually found a way in the far SE edge of the Church yard where there is a short section of wooden fence and the spiky fence behind has a short break. Long grass on top of hill would be a bit unpleasant had it been wet.However a delightful dry evening and bright sun nearing sunset streaming through the trees. What a delightful little town Bewdley is. Got involved in long chat with a woman out walking her whippet and her very old toy white poodle called Lucy, both of whom barked furiously at me in a wheat field by the church, while I tried to befriend them while I chatted to them and her and eventually I asked if the tiny poodle would be okay about me picking it up and I did and it nestled in my arms and both dogs stopped barking and we chatted for quite a while. Alice is a French teacher at some local school and also knows a bit of Spanish. She and hubby moved to Bewdley about 4 years ago and has 3 kids of 20, 7 and 3. Isabelle, Edith gnd Sylvie. She thoroughly recommend that I drive down into Bewdley, just to get a feel of the place before heading off. I did and it was delightful in the dusk. Bought a bit of rocket salad and three bargain pears in the Tesco Express. Next door was a good chippy that fried in rape seed oil so I bought a great value amount of chips for £2.

12.15 trig pillar S4718 nagging doubts about the possibility of unfinished business, now rectified. When coming here in August 2004 with Jamie for the Marilyn summit, I was in a hurry. It seemed obvious that the highest point was going to be on the rim of the ring fort and these points near to the mats must be good enough for the highest point. No time to hunt down the trig pillar. Doubts haunted me since. Chatting with Myrddyn Phillips confirmed my doubts. Time for a visit to photograph the trig pillar. Mission accomplished. Honour satisfied. Should've visited it on American independence day 2018...that would've been very cool..!

Is there ever a more precarious trig?... sitting on a narrow neck of rock while 96% around it had been quarried away. Farmer says he wants to level the land. Asked what he's doing with the pillar or if he'll let an enthusiast take it away, he was a bit tight lipped. 'Not decided yet. Might put it somewhere here.' So it'll be away from there sometime soon.

Lady said no unless you get signed in by a member so someone signboard me in and I duly had a cuppa. The symbol of the club is the groaner, immortalised in a fancy stained glass panel in a big West facing picture window half way up the stairs. 'You can see it at the end of the course' one of the guys said. I imagined, wholly wrongly, from cursory glance at the stained glass, that it was a view out to sea of some big sea stack rock. Couldn't find it anywhere off the coast on my map. No wonder. Na.. It's just a wee rock about metre and a half high next to the 14th tee..!!!

Good but unusually toppled temporarily. I have the full story from the horses mouth, The Laird, Mike Campbell. Some years ago. he and his wife bought two old telephone boxes. He decided it would be quite quite a laugh to put one right over the top of the trig pillar on the top of the hillside. Now a couple of years back he was fed up with the amount of litter that people visiting it had put inside to phone box and the amount of gates on the track left open and fences broken so he decided to remove the phone box. Had no intention of removing the pillar too but in concreting in the box the bar had welded itself to the pillar and so with the big digger that he used, the trig pillar came away too and top got knocked off the box, perhaps fortunately for us to be able to see and photograph it. But they are not lost and he says intends to put the pillar back at some stage,though I doubt in reality if he'll ever get around to it. In the mean time phone box with trig still in side it, is stored behind some mega big pipes at the back of the first little knoll hill west of the road, north of the Loch Melfort Hotel... Grid ref NM797 106 Directions.. Immediately off road at entrance to Loch Melford Hotel drive, gate on right onto farm yard. Ask permission if you can. Head left through other gate. Along track till splits shortly, take left fork. Further 150metres big storage yard on left in cutaway behind hill... huge pipe directly in front of you at right end. Telephone box with trig inside is behind it.

Menagerie of geese ducks hens goats and horses half way up. More forlorn looking horses on left near top in totally churned up field devoid of grass. Photographing pillar fit strolled up from field, without saying 'hello' or 'can I help you '... Simply 'You do know this is private. There are signs at the bottom song no access' 'I've come to inspect the pillar' 'Oh yeah, for who?

'A trig pillock' s day' Trig pillar in tricky place possibly buried in bramble high on an embankment above a railway. Rather difficult. Looked in Trigpointinguk. com's posts at Griefmiester 2012 and Carol Engel's copy posts and planned to try same idea risking a trespass walking along the railway line then up the very steep embankment. However, a four/five foot high newish looking green steel fence between footpath and railway with spiked tops didn't look easily scalable by me and thought I'd investigate something easier. So I returned to the footbridge across the railway near where the pillar is, to seek solution and see if it was visible. Decided to knock on door of 137 Birchy Barton Hill right next to it and ask there for permission to go in their back garden and even tell them what I wanted to do and ask if they had a steep ladder they might consider lending me. Fine to go down garden but sorry no step ladder. Good fairly close view of trig on top of embankment just about ten feet away. Clear that the other garden end of terrace on the main road of the estate the fence I needed to cross is at back of their garden. Best option to get close photos. So I go round there. Great irony house on the other road Thornpark Rise is also numbered 137. What an amazing coincidence two gardens both number 137 on two different roads both abutting the pillar. Lady came to door in motorised scooter, Same patter,. "Hello, my names Charles. I've git a rather strange request. I'd like some help with. Don't know if you know the Ordnance survey who make maps. They've got a triangulation pillar behind the fence at the back of your garden and I wondered if I could have permission to go to it and even wondered if there was any way you might be able to help me further. I'm trying to borrow a step ladder to get over the fence to see the condition and take some photos. "Don't think I've got a step ladder but suppose my husband might have one. If you go round the back I'll look on the shed." Round the back the gate is locked and the lady says, "Go round the front and come back through the kitchen" Initially I wait for her then realising she's on these motorised scooter thing assume she means me to come straight through so open the front door and walk through to the back. She's there in the garden and there's a very slight slope that's mossy and her scooter is slipping so she needs help and I have to help her back up on to the flatter concrete patio area. Shed's locked. "There's a lot of keys on the windowsill in kitchen if you'd go and get it." Grateful she's being so trusting of this enthusiastic nerdy stranger. In the shed is a small 4 step ladder. I have to straddle a wooden fence to get into the back area next to the railway fence but fortunately in the corner there's a block of something about foot high I can stand on and I lift the little step ladder over the outside of the railway line embankment fence and it's just possible to lift a leg over and on to the top of the step ladder. Eureka. Quick scan of the mossy pillar. Photos taken and back over railway fence. By this time, protective neighbour at 135 is there to check out that her neighbour is okay and check me out. "Are you from the council?" she asks. "No, I'm just an enthusiast checking the condition of these things. Your neighbour has been so extremely helpful," I gush, with enthusiastic gratitude. She unlocks the other door and ushers me out and back round to the front clearly not sure what to make of me, but reasonably happy looking that I'm kosher and not up to no good. Job done. I reiterate my profound thank you's and say goodbye and thank you to Stella at the second number 137. .

Presumed I'd bagged me a HuMP summit, but with dead phone and just old 1991 1.50k map with no spot height on Cairn Fell to NW I didn't know they were twin summits that had been de-twinned a year before and I'd judged, very foolishly, that the other one probably wasn't also a TuMP summit so didn't have the wisdom to hoof it across the fields to NW too as I was too keen to get up on to the Barncorkrie Moor five summits to the west, before sunset. Epic failure of judgement as I found out next day in Dumfries library when I learned Cairn Fell was 40cm higher... Grrrrrrr ...Dumb foolish chump in Dumfries.

On my return after a glorious sunset two cows and calves had come nearer across the route I'd walked up. I went over to the other far side of the field and yet again the bull let out a continuing low growl, but didn't move at all. Phew!

Very strange location but must've had good views before housing estate was built. Took narrow footpath from end of Ardern Close. Bear left at fork and left on to wide track. 30 metres then left and downhill on another narrow footpath with a few log steps - you will eventually reach a gate into a garden in V of boundary fences. Before you get to the V the pillar is down along the boundary to your right about ten to fifteen metres before this path end, uncovered from ivy at the moment in front of garden with neatly manicured lawn. Really satisying to find, if weird!

walk along the sea wall from the south east until just before there is a sharp left hand turn and trig can be seen about 200m to the left. Just before this left bend, bear down round the end of the ditch and squeeze round the bit of broken fence end. then walk along the embankment between two ditches, 200metres to the trig.

from the road to the west it's much easier to approach from200metres south of the highest bit of road rather than the gate 200metres north on the bend. southerly route allows access without fence climbing right up till almost at pillar where an easy hip over by a hall in hedge gets to it. northern route requires more barbed wire fence climbing.

visitors at this time of year will find a hidden pillar. There's a pull off on south side of road almost opposite, 15-20m west of where the trig is. MOD fence is about one metre behind the road side bracken but there's two sections with no barbed wire on top there. I've forged a path leading right for 15-20 metres before it bears left, north to the trig in its own little clearing surrounded by seven foot high bracken and new cherry tees and oak. Be aware that ground other side of fence is about 20-30 cm lower than roadside.

As this is tump summit too, wandered round the SE and Sw sides of the perimeter fence and reckon the SW apex is as high as any natural ground inside. There was a smallish mound of what looked like stuff mounded up from the foundation levelling of the golfball weather proofing to the radar that was inside.

I drove all the way up the track to the ride to the east at approx. 234 887 tangled mess of a few trees at top of ride but one can crawl and climb a way through Then hundred metres SE and then up the ride to the south of summit. Then an epic struggle from the ride to the south at approx 228 888 130 m up the ride from the east, having to painstakingly secateur my way slowly through dense young pine trees about ten to twelve feet high. Maybe been only about 100 m but took about half an hour!! There is now a fully cut way through for any others following. Wish I'd looked properly at logs as Carole Engel used a similar route. trig n cairn in about 50 m diameter clearing.

It appears in English on the west panel, in Latin on the north panel and French on the east panel. On the south side is the bricked up entrance. This is what it says and I've used a tripple space to indicate a new line on the panel: THIS PILLAR, IS ERECTED TO COMMEMORATE, THE GENIUS, ENERGY AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS, OF, THOMAS SAMUEL JOLIFFE ESQ, LORD OF THE ADJACENT HUNDREDS OF KILMERSDON AND WELLOW, WHO - IN EVERY RELATION OF LIFE- IN THE SENATE AND ON THE SEAT OF JUSTICE, IN EXERCISING THE PECULIAR RIGHTS, AND DISCHARGING THE VARIOUS DUTIES OF AN EXTENSIVE LANDHOLDER, CONCILIATED THE REGARD AND ESTEEM, OF AN AFFLUENT AND INTELLIGENT DISTRICT.

As I cane of the top of the mound. Farmer pulled up with tractor trailer curious to know what I was curious about. Turned out to be doorways he had made to a mini hydro scheme that he'd installed, and he showed me it all and got full info about it, cost feed in tariff, payback time, construction design etc. all very interesting.

After a number of attempts to explore the fascinating landscape of this trig and hump, had foundered on failing light or weather, wrong timing of various types etc...tonight with fine weather and two hour daylight window after picking up Jamie en route to York, seemed it would finally be good timing and surprisingly Jamie agreed to do it. An impromptu text to Simon Barnard telling him of our plans with under an hour of notice, just in case he might be free and interested to join us, also gelled positively. Great to have your guidance to the finer nooks and crannies of your favourite hill Simon. Excellent to finally visit and whet my appetite for a return visit with more time and full daylight.

condition only because of slight lean. Up the dirt path fromWNW till break in the wall. Then south into woodland and easy to find. this was my return route only. made mistake of assuming path was at end of tarmac road with houses on the west. this has a lean to lose iron gate and clear old sign saying private. hesitated about if this was right route but went anyway and zig zagged yup through very private grounds, uncomfortably, till at the top field where I then went north to the trig. Not a recommended route but I'd failed to notice the beginning of the path I came down, on my initial entry to park in the road.

Delightful walk up from layby on road to the west already mentioned by others. Considerable felling on south and west slopes means that although tip is still wooded, there is only a60 metre south facing ride to walk up to the very mossy trig. Deeply atmospheric with low west sun filtering through the wind trials pines creating a dancing pattern of dappled light on the dark green moss just like a mini northern lights or imagining fairies dancing on the velvety surface!! Didn't take a beating but if Clochandighter's June2008 figure of 111 degrees is right then this is surely ESE not ENE stated then !!

Very few 14** series pillars and it represents for me my dad's birthday trig walk as he was an Easter Sunday April fool born 1/4/23 so this would've been his 72 nd birthday pillar just acouple of years before his last hill walk with me on Skye two years later. ,I'm his oldest child and I was born in Blackheath.

had read the reputation, but thought rather than disturb them I'd just take a couple of quick pics and leave, but within minutes the farmer in his camouflage jacket and friendly Labrador was walking up towards me. I walked up brightly and said 'hello my name's Charles just wanted permission to take a couple of pics of your pillar.' With a slightly grumpy sigh he said, 'It's too late isn't it?' Too late?, I asked puzzled, 'yes too late to knock on my door and ask permission.' He wasn't angry but sad and frustrated at the slight worry of unknown visitors. Clearly it's important to do the correct polite thing here and ask permission. I should have done so and felt guilty about it. My attempt at quick photo and leave was inappropriate in this case to the sensitivities of this man who rightly, simply wanted to be asked.

almost missed a trick here. I hadn't realized it was in fenced in garden. I tried ringing on gate intercom. just caught glimpse of it from Peregrinus' accurate description. it is more like 15m left of gates and 8m into garden. However if you stand next to the fence7/8 m left of gates you can just see the pillar clearly in the bushes. However was just about to give up and go when thought I'd just look closely at the pedestrian gate to the right of the closed drive gates. It was open so I decided to go in as view was obscured from house. So I got my photos.

Well this was an elusive little hider. Not wanting to disturb the house owners I hoped over the fence and around the wooden garage and couldn't find it at all. Given past descriptions I should've had my antennae more finely tuned. having looked twice without success I went and knocked on Thatch cottage. the friendly woman was wholly bemused by what I was describing, took me through house into garden where husband Keith was chopping wood. He equally knew nothing about it. They'd been there about four years. As he and I walked round the south end of the wooden garage where I'd looked just seven to eight minutes before, there next to the wooden ladder leading up to the loft of the garage was a wholly ivy covered four foot high lump that I'd walked right past. Keith was fascinated and went off to get some secateurs and we revealed it again and I told him how the OS used them.

Forget trying and failing at Jodrell Bank. Use little yellow road immediately to the south west, turn right ( east) just before road goes under railway to the farmyard, parking in the farmers yard by the house and asking permission. Although very muddy farmyard, easy peasy as its right on the boundary right up against the fence just in J B territory and easy to hop over the fence to photograph the flush bracket that is facing the offices....doing it that way without bothering Jodrell bank where you're likely to get disappointment. I was surprised this was so easy and stumbled across trying this ironically having gone down the wrong road trying to access Jodrell Bank site from the south. My solution here is by far the best option going.

Found the pesky creature.... It was lower than the middle of the path. No wonder it was easy for bramble and nettle to obscure it on last visit. 39 double paces north of the east west track (65m) and about three metres west of the north track. Reused an old wheeze on Friday to great effect. Seeking out Carrington Moss this time from the north, I was stopped again by a Man United security guard and another barrier. I said, " I just want to drive down the track and along to the right under the pylons to visit the triangulation pillar there." Bemused look. "why??" " For photographic research purposes". "No, I don't think so." Then I remembered a fictional organisation I dreamed up in the mid nineties and printed off some official looking A4 forms to put on a clip board. 'TriPIC' the 'Triangulation Pillar Inspectorate Collectorate.' Thinking on my feet quickly, I said, " I'm from TriPIC the triangulation pillar inspectorate collectorate. I know there's a Manchester United training ground down there and you want to protect them from snoopers but I'm not interested in that, I want to turn right before that, to the pillar." " OH, RIGHT, okay then, they never tell us these things down there" Up goes the barrier and I drive to within 60m the pillar. Result! Good idea for anyone else to use in any situation when a GOML might be impressed and help you get to a pillar more easily!

Aaaaargh...tantrum...throw my dummy out of the pram. Cannot believe I couldn't find it. Okay unwise to come in sandals and shorts at the end of summer but still thought I'd find it okay. Walked up and down the track three times. Checked the map measured the amount of distance north of the track junction to about hundred metres. Walked back to junction twice and paced it out. Got on my knees and peered into the nettle and bramble stems as you do.....and failed, failed failed. I swear I'll come back in the winter with a pot of red paint and paint the entire pillar red for my anger and frustration not for Manchester United !!! Came from the south and got stopped at a locked gate before the Man United training faculty that I knew nothing about. He was a scouser and Liverpool fan. Added to the days irony

Went over the gate with Ashtree farm sign on it. wandered up the overgrown field. in the top right hand corner, on the right 5 metres from the corner there is a way through to the field behind. harvested stubble there and trig is over to the right surrounded by some nettles and hawthorn. unsurprisingly on the way back found two golf balls on the field stubble.

Pristine white and fitting for a visit with the boy whose 21st birthday trig number is on the flush bracket. Trig Pillocksson, being now a stroppy teenager of 15, refused a nice natural toothy smile, specifically because dad requested it. Our visit coincided with a massive Scot camp of5/600. I asked someone if it was some national camp but no just the while of Derbyshire Scots for the weekend!! And we were on our way to Burton Albion football club, who are top of league two, to unfortunately see them beat York city 2:0.

Aaargh another failure. I'd wandered into middle of harvested field stubble and was going to report back that it'd gone. I did pick up a fine firm smallish giant puffball that had just sprouted after harvest. What a pain that my phone battery died half an hour before and I'd not been able to read notes again and hadn't transferred any on to my map. I now recall reading something about this one moving. I had a little look along woodland edge anyway but not dilligently, which I would've done if I'd realised it was still there.

Excellent to finally get to visit this moved trig in Brian Dunning's front garden and have a brief coffee with him and sign his visitors book. He was telling me about its removal and how he organised it after he got a call from his boss saying the farmer wanted it removed. Apparently the OS set £250 as the price they were willing to pay a contractor to remove and dispose of a trig and so he bid 240 and actually got paid to organise it. He hired a JCB. It was all a bit of a struggle. I think they cut off some of the subterranean concrete. Very unique.

I wandered up the lane into the farmyard scanned cursoraly at the field boundary to the north left and right as I did so and asked the farmer, who was there where the trig pillar was. He pointed over my shoulder with a smile. It was right there in the farmyard about 4-5 metres behind me staring me in the face, too obvious to see when my initial focus had been beyond and over it!!!

Would never have believed I could get quite lost and disorientated in mist here after just a 50m climb up a grassy bank and return straight down what I thought felt like the fourth side of a rectangle. Stupidly left map and compass in the car. Seriously lost for about 30-40 mins. Had to reverse my direction twice and quite amazed and a little bit freaked out by how easy it was to get disorientated. Clear now that it was not simply three sides of a rectangle that I'd walked and I'd been trying to come down the other side of the ridge and was walking east and south towards cliffs instead of west North west to my car. Unnerving for a while.

Camped in a little enclave at back of national trust car park last night and ate my Chinese veg curry on the beach in the moonlight and came exploring for the best way for this trig this morning. V clear moon skies have gone. who put in nasty sea mist and a stiff breeze with grey blanket overhead. This isn't what the forecasters promised!! Asphalt plug. Feel of wild moorland Lovely colour mixtures purples and browns in heather greens and yellows in the gorse. Wild and mighty chilly.

As with previous advice come from west and round to the south on the tack and path,BUT importantly look for the tall narrow rusty gate in the top right hand corner of the field ne, which leads to a steep narrow path up through the gorse and then continues upward right to the stile at the top right hand corner of the top field before the final step bit to the summit.

Dull and threatening to drizzle again. So different from Hope mountain this morning! Don't expect anyone else quite as mad as me to be up on this little hill summit in damp grey approaching dusk. Standing at the trig notice troup people wandering towards it on the track from the east. Then a load more behind them on the horizon. Within 5 mins a group of 18 were at the trig, members of a Wednesday evening pub ramblers called 'The extreme pub crawlers' who all lived around Tameside. An unexpectedly bizarre experience.

No. As with Petronius Peregrinus he found you have to write in to the bosses in advance and they'll likely say yes an send a note down to the gate for permission. Interesting humorously that my Swype texting on the phone when I tried Swyping ' for permission', initially gave me 'got prison'. Haha

Multi time visit again with Jamie to my local pillar. Deep in 6 foot high bracken and nettles. Shame that Bangkok_ian chickened put of climbing over the fence. It's only about 15 metres in. I've been in loads and never been bothered by anyone. The new young cherry trees had cherries on them and some of them were quite sweet though many were not reallyripe enough yet and a bit sour. Jamie stood on the trig and could only be seen from shin upwards. For those who need hints for this trig at this time of year there is a small pull off on south side of the road about 10 metres west of where the trig is opposite. There is also a metre high barbed wire fence a metre back from the road edge invisible mid July, but two stretches of fence between posts the barbed wire has 'disappered'. For any people visiting shortly Jamie and I have tramped down a bit of a path though the nettle and bracken jungle. Don't go in shorts and sandals!! is my local!

Hiding discretely behind a larch tree. Shallow recessed letters cap. Feel part of a select small band of dedicated enthusiasts to visit this one. It is actually really accessible as it is straight up a forest ride from the track to the south east and easy under foot. It also has quite an atmosphere of mystique. As one gets higher up the forest ride, three felled trees give a psychological if not much of an actual physical barrier to further progress. Then ahead the ride closes off into a short tunnel like doorway as if through to a promised land beyond. As if to add to this slightly 'mystery dell ahead' feel, rather bizarrely I noticed that there were two bits of pine branches over to the right about eyelevel before this 'portway' that have been sprayed pink. WTF!!! So through the doorway and out into a more open bit of final hillside. But where is the trig I wonder. When eventually getting to it, up to the right and back of the clearing it's position is almost demure, as if shyly hiding slightly behind a larch. A very charming and delightful bag indeed, on a warm dry sunny day.

Very smooth perfect concrete top and sides, plus original metal cap with shallow indented letters. Interesting that there have only been three other posts and all mention open centre so clearly a central cap has been replaced at some stage, since Iainmac's visit. One might say very boring compared to the textures on some pillars tops and sides. Returned on19th to make trig top plaster cast.

Made a cast anyway espec as the flush bracket number is part of the birthday series of my son Jamie's mum, though she's prob unlikely to see this birthday as its the last in her series , her 99th!!

Looks good but as said before only visible from the bottom of the bank through the fence. Delightful walk to it though from the road to the west. Gorgeous Hawthorn blossom, beautiful purple vetch and glorious field of golden buttercups. And all the while to contrasty the peaceful ambience of the visual scene there was the incongruous loud traffic rumble as the M55 to Blackpool is immediately behind the hedge to ones left as I walked to the reservoir.

Given previous comments I went in to the farm to ask permission but given it was a Monday and farm only open wed to Saturday, the woman said no and also because couldn't go up through the farmyard as there was an isolation unit. She said to come back on Wednesday. I was only in Blackpool for an hour. Decided to take a look from the field to the west and walked up through long grass to see if I would be able to see it over the hedge. Sure enough there it was only 20-30 get away in the sunshine and open mown grass. I photographed it from there but didn't however climb over the two barbed wire fences to go right up to it out of respect for the refusal of permission.

You'd never know it unless you were trying to put a frame round the top to make an art plaster cast, but this trig is significantly bigger than all others I've tried to cast ie approx 20mm both ways. Puzzled by some of the furtive visits in the past and talk of GOML reactions. No need to go through any clay pigeon range at all and I had a trouble free visit middle of a Thursday morning. Unsure where to approach it from south A road, having driven just beyond the top of hill and seen 'trespassers will be prosecuted' signs, I decided to go back and on to the Farnham road to the west and drive up to the farm and ask permission for a visit for my art trig top project. Found big steel mechanical gates at entrance to Gibbet hill farm. So googled it on my phone, found holiday cotts website and rang the owner on his mobile to ask permission to visit and he said if he'd been there he'd've opened the gates for me but told me just where to pull off the road into an open gateway on the south road, so drove back there and just before the brow of the hill I pulled my car in there SE36002 59501, parked on the field and an easy hoof across two fields to the top right corner. Took my kit to make a plaster cast of the top so I can make some ceramic art sculptural pieces from it. Had to give it quite a hawthorn haircut with my secateurs first. Noticed that the corner most into the hedge has a loose chunk with the concrete still there and in place. If I'd had a tube of UHU in my car I'd've cleaned it off and re-glued it!! In terms of number geekiness. This FB trig number is the 18th Birthday trig of my pal in York, John Cossham!

Birthdate flush bracket trig pillar of Alan Dawson inventor of the Marilyns Hil list. After sleeping half the night on the summit slopes of his 21st birthday hill Shining tor (S2773). Have been taking a greater interest recently in the finer subtleties of the differing surfaces of the tops of pillars. One of the unique features of this one is the white dental chip filler. It's also got an awful lot of differently coloured pebbles in the concrete mix. This gives it a wonderfully knobbly/pebbly top.

utterly wonderful location, painted white, but not as pristinely white as my first visit 14 years back. Regally on top of a steep little bit of hill, north of big white water tower. Arrived just before sunset complete with my kit for taking a plaster cast of the top of the pillar. Packed my wooden frame with clay round the edges and I was ready to mix and pour the 'plaster of paris'just about gorgeous sunset time. left it to dry and cure while I went off to seek out the full moonrise in the opposite direction front the reservoir fence hundred metres to the south. No luck there, blanket cloud in eastern sky. Shame. But great to get my third trig pillar top cast so I can now make slip cast clay sculpture panels from it. It's come out with excellent definition on the central 'Ordnance Survey triangulation station' central ring. For the number nerdy who like birthdate links to flush bracket numbers, this is David Beckham's birthdate trig pillar!! What could be nerdier than that info???!!!When I was first here, ironically it was also almost at sunset 4.40pm Sunday 7th Feb 1999 with a gorgeous dalmation dog called Jasper whose white with black spots looked very stylish juxtaposed against the trig and white water tower.

this is a CHEAT,post, my only non visit post, as a howl of public humiliation and embarrassment to myself, to rectify it!! I climbed Fan Fawr from Storey arms on 3rd April in glorious sunshine. Snowy summit, brisk icy east wind. Back in York and looking at my 1:50k landranger I'm amazed to notice a trig symbol 600m away on the SW shoulder. How can it be that I didn't know?? I had only the Outdoor leisure sheet 12 on the day. I didn't notice it. Went back to look at it now to see if trig symbol was missing but no. There is a yellow background colour so it doesn't stand out as much but considering I sought out another trig pillar to the north specifically, on my way back to Brecon and visited another to the north with friends in the afternoon, there's no excuses, just a temporary blindness. I blame my eyesight. I was just focused on getting to the marilyn summit but would've detoured out there had I been aware of it. Bemusing, embarrassing. Will have to try and correct my folly perhaps by taking my son to bag the marilyn at end of July/beginning August. I expect I could even have seen it from the summit had I been aware to look!!

Last time I'd visited in Feb I failed to find it. Found it this time but frame I'd made to sleeve round the top was too small and I'd failed to notice on pics of the chip off the Se side of the top that also meant I couldn't take a cast today.

I wonder if any other people are intrepid jungle clearers like me and Jamie, coming prepared with secateurs and mini folding saw. From comments here it seems maybe not. I was amazed it was so buried and invisible. Macrodermas 2006 pic of far side of the flush bracket showed that there was only abourt one third of the amount of gross thick overgrowth that I faced now in 2012. This pillar was certainly not for the faint hearted in shorts and sandals so I returned to my car to put on long trousers and walking boots before returning with walking pole and secaturs. It took quite a bit of nettle whacking with my walking pole on the east side of the North/south foliage before I could even stare enough into the dark undergrowth to eventually find where it was by seeing its vague outline against the daylight the other side of about 10-12 feet of brambles. It seemed it was likely to be closer accessed from the other side so it was from the west that I then started cutting away huge long thick stemmed sections of bramble. Probably took about half an hour to liberate it. Flush bracket is on the opposite east side to my west facing jungle clearing.

WELL!! what excellent timing, and a 60th birthday bonus. Visited this trig 12-13years before, when there was no fence. Now that there was, had no thoughts of getting to see the trig and was just going to go out again to the hill summit tumulus in the field with a circle of trees and my local Marilyn summit. However driving by the gate, it was open and a waterboard worker with long gingerish hair and beard was doing something with a tap just to the right inside the gate. I pulled up and leapt out of the car and asked if he was a Water board company worker? He eyed me suspiciously and said sarcastically that the water board was broken up over 20 years ago and 'What can I do to help you.' 'Are you still here for 5-10 mins more,' I asked. 'I might be,' he said, still eyeing me suspciously. 'Why, What do you want? 'Oh I'm just a trig enthusiast and wanted to go over to the trig for five mins or so with my son Jamie.' 'You won't be immediately announcing my kindness on Twitter will you and getting me into trouble?' 'No, of course not,' I reassure. 'Okay off you go then.' After taking pics of Jamie sitting on the trig and a close up of his colourful feet dangling either side of the FB I wandered back to the gate and remembering that I had a couple of squares of cartridge paper in my car door, gingerly asked ginger beardy if he'd mind if I went back again for a few minutes to do something extra nerdy. 'What's that?' he enquired. 'Oh I'd like to go back and take a pencil rubbing of the Flush Bracket. 'Go on then.' I was lying on the grass doing the difficult job of holding the paper and trying to rub with pencil lead strongly enough to get a decent impression but not so strong that I broke through the paper, which I did.

Sticking about a foot above in a field of short stem wheat just about 3 metres in from one of the tractor tyre channels perhaps 100m or so from the northern field edge and trees. Relatively easy access despite crop via tyre track 'path' south to noth, then wesr, then south and just a short carefulmove into the trig and back. A fourth trig bonus on a Trig terrific Thursday evening.

Nine days ago, Tues17th this was the first of three unseen trigs in a row, 'buried' in hawthorn, that constituted 'Tears of a trig pillock. Trig free Tuesday' I didn't find it due entirely to fact of having only my 1.50k map with me and not having clear idea which field boundary it was on and not then having good new phone with internet access to TPUK. I walked up and down both sides of a N/S hedge then an E/W one the the next E/W one to the east and finally another both sides of an E/W up to the new wind turbine. Back home at the computer on TPUK and Streetmap 1.25k I soon found, much to my utter frustration and embarrassment, that all three were there and that I'd walked right past all three of them!!! Nine days on, visiting the same three in reverse, this was the third and I came with son Jamie, 1.25k map and most important equipment, secateurs and folding saw. Parking at the same place to the NW, I knew exactly where to look paced out from the corner of northern end to level with the first eastern hawthorn hedge, 65 Double Paces south, then another 65 DP's which I reckoned should be nearly spot on the place. Staring into the hawthorn and nettles revealed the base of the trig within a couple of metres. A comprehensive pruning on both sides left it able to bask in full sunrise and sunset. FB on west face.

It had to be within 50 metres of the road according to the map. The hawthorn hedge was massive, prob 2 metres thick and a bit more than two metres high, covered with a dense thickness of pussy willow interlaced with six foot high nettles. No wonder I never found it when I didn't even have a certainty it was in this hedge and within 50m. Had to carefully try and kick away enough of the other foliage detritus, eventually revealed the base of the trig totally encased with hawthorn. A comprehensive pruning on east side left it able to bask in full sunrise. FB on west face.

cycled out to my local trig with son Jamie, thinking, foolishly that it would be mid to late August before the bracken was really high!! Also both of us were wearing sandals and shorts and I'd forgotten that there would be nettles there too. Although I knew exactly where the trig is, it couldn't be seen. Loads of rain in last 6 weeks had made a jungle of bracken already seven feet high. Even the fence which I knew to be approx 2 metres from the road was densely obscured with grass, bracken and all matted together with pussy willow. Not an experience for bare legs, so vowed to come back next day and take a pic of Jamie on top of the invisible pillar seemingly walking on top of the bracken.

Very hard to be sure of finding and getting to in mid summer, as many others have mooted, but successful today and notes here that may help other summer high crop visitors. ***Important note The field boundaries to the north of trig pillar and 400m to east, shown on the 1.25k map, do not actually exist any more on the ground. It is one massive, prob 50 hectare field with different plantings but no fences/hedges/walls. Gave up from west corner entrance from the road with a blanket field of rape seed but thought I'd see if any other entrances to field further down the hill on the road and there is one we used at approx 595844. Field of wheat here in south east section which has convenient tractor tracks that lead across field NNE then vering 90 degrees WNW that takes you to the edge where the crop changes from wheat to rape seed. A scan of the crop showed the top foot of the pillar sticking out above the rape seed pods, which is a not too difficult push through about 30-40m of the rape seed and we're there, Hurrah

With son Jamie. Parked next to the radio mast to the north and walked south. Getting very dusky with blanket of thick grey cloud at about 2000feet. Fascinated to find it was a primary. Made a pencil rubbing on cartridge paper of the spider,flush bracket and a bit of the OS plate. Big thanks to Clochandighter for the interesting extra info I've subsequently read from his May 2009 visit. Fourth trig of the evening. There seem to be many clustered close together around here. A good afternoon and evening after first traipsing up the small 352m Marilyn to the SE called Dent

From field entrance roadside to the SW about 100m north of the 94m spot height. With Trig Pillocksson, think we should adopt this pillar. I was named Charles Harold Stanley Everett because my maternal grandfather was Thomas Stanley Dixon, Jamie is Jamie Joseph Stanley because he also had a maternal side great uncle called Stanley. Flush bracket numbers give 'birthday trig walk' link as part of the series for Jamie's mum born on 5th June '70. This is her 74th birthday trig for 5th June 2044 if she reaches the year 2044!! Nice name and nerdy heaven. Interesting to see Clochandighters pic from 2009 where it was more accessible. It is now behind another fence in front of the flush bracket. Why for Gods sake?? Massive dung heap behind us, just 10m to the north.

Jamie and I found it!!! Visited the site of this trig without any prior knowledge about not finding it. Now of course I've read the history. Particularly interested in the difference between pics fron Discjirm May 2003 and especially Iainmac's pics of May2005. Pretty lucky that PeregrinusRob still found it precariously standing still, in Aug 2005. We were standing at the highest point of the second rise to the south, after the small cutting into the cliff marked on the map to the north. It had to be pretty well where the trig had stood. Sure enough a careful scan down the clayey rubbly slope and there was the tell tale sign of what could only be the concrete base of the fallen pillar, facing out to sea, but with about 40cm of 6cm bevelled edge visible and about 10cm of one side. It looked pretty easy to scramble down to it, so we did. I estimate that it is about 12 metres or so below the top and so perhaps 22/23 metres above the beach. Although most of it was buried under hardened dry clay and earth I wanted to check if the small amount of side that was facing upwards, was the one that had the flush bracket, as the amount of earth needing to be removed wasn't that great. After all there was a 1 in 4 chance that it did. I asked Jamie to go searching for any rocks with a sharpish edge we could use to gradually bash away at and scrape away the hardened rubble. I started with the nearest stone to hand. Jamie came back with a sharper edged stone which helped a bit but it was still slow and we needed something to spike into the earth to break it up quicker. I remembered I had a Swiss army knife in the rucksack on the grassy top so Jamie went back up and came down with that. Didn't want to blunten the blade of the knives but the fish scaler tool was never going to be used by this vegetarian other than for the ruler down its side so it made an ideal poking and prising tool. This speeded things up no end. Eventually we got wide enough in from the side, and far enough up, from the concrete base to be where the indentation should be. Sure enough I started to find a recessed area. Digging further and scraping away, recess seemed to go down a long way and fear crossed my mind that maybe someone had actually hacked out the flush bracket, despite thinking this to be very unlikely. Anyway, eureka, a little bit more digging and there, in all its glory was the flush bracket S5766. This was definitely the most interesting trig search that we'd done!! For any born 5th of July this is one of your birthday flush bracket series. And for those born just before the famous '66 world cup win....this is your birth pillar!! If only one could've had a permanent web cam on it over its final year to capture it's actual topple. Wonder what date and time of day it was?

13 hours and camping on the summit with son Jamie. Glorious evening, fantastic sunset in NW at 9.35 followed 10/15 mins later by full moonrise in SE, followed by beacons being lit forn the Jubillee eve on Black Combe and I counted 15 other hilltop beacon fires to the east and round to the SE and even fireworks across Morecombe Bay at Blackpool. Set alarm for 4 am to spend 30 mins watching glorious pre dawn sky over the Lake District fells with Scafell Pike, Bow Fell north of the sunrise and Old Man of Coniston fells to the south of the eventual sunrise at 4.50 in the NE. All absolutely wonderful. Eventually bedded down for more sleep right through to about 08.30 Tuesday 5th. More overcast now and by the time we got down the hill to the east and the little collection of houses at Brigert Mire, there were a few bits of drizzle in the air. Sean from N Ireland but living in Preston, who'd kindly said we could park my car next to his holiday house wall, offered Jamie and I a cup of tea, while his shyish 5 and 7 year olds wandered down in their pyjamas and wondered who this strange man and boy were in their kitchen.
