Walked along the diverted bridleway from Castle Gate. It was a bit wet in a couple of places, but basically it was fine. Trig is vgc - apart for no cap. The bolt is visible. Excellent views.

From the Engine House pub. Along the FP on the S side of hill until the point where it meets the access land. I went through the right hand gate and met a quagmire. Then there was an intermittent path, but I had to go though the gorse, bramble and dead bracken for much of the way. Unpleasant. Trig in vgc, No cap. Bolt visible. Excellent views. But marked back down for the challenge of reaching it.

Excellent view point. Trig vgc. Intact cap. I struck up to the col SW of the trig. There was a bit of an intermittent path, but I lost it and so there was some gorse/bracken/heather/bramble. But I picked up the path that runs SW of the trig. Might have been better if I had aimed for the col to the W.

The former Zeneca research buildings are boarded up and look very neglected, as is the former lawn around the trig. Trig just north of the road around the outside of the offices. No cap - centre open. Note I used jonglew's grid ref to find it - it is far more accurate than the approx grid ref currently given. Not sure about the chronology of the site. The pillar has 1960 on it, and I found reference to suggest the offices date from the early 80s. The site was vacated in December 2001, following merger with a Swiss firm. There is security on site (vans in car park), and the trig is just beyond a gate.

Pleasant stroll up from high point on minor road to the NW. Marked as Remains because all we could find was a hole where we assume the Bolt used to be. Left the cairn so the hole is visible. Happy to be corrected if others have more joy. Good view point.

Station SU59/T031. Bolt. RAF Oakley was operational from May 1942 to August 1945. The old Battle HQ is in the SE side of the airfield. It can be accessed from a taxiway? to the west along a field boundary. It is rather brambly around the Battle HQ (shorts not recommended). The bolt is a bit battered (hence Slightly damaged), and in the middle of the northern elevated part of the roof. I accessed the roof up the right hand side of the entrance at the southern end - not trivial. There is a way onto the roof from inside at the north end, and so the easiest access may be through the building, but I did not explore, as it was pitch black inside and I did not have a torch.

Then I realised that that did not exist until the late 50s or early 60s. I found the mast on the 1960 1:10,560 map, at which stage Harwell labs was open to the north, but the site of the Rutherford was still the old RAF runways. So I assume the mast disappeared when the Rutherford was built. I have found no evidence of the mast lasting into the Rutherford era.

The roof is sometimes open - but the museum is currently closed for refurbishment. This intersected station is the vane on the main roof. The flagstaff is a second intersected station. Lovely building, which also has a cut bench mark, plus the shadow of a very weathered old cut mark.

Intersected station SP42/INT002. The site is derelict, but a chimney survives. The station was computed in 1952 and it was maintained in 1986 (whatever maintains means for a non-occupiable station). Although derelict, the chimney looks newer than 1952, so I wondered if it is not original. However, as the plant closed in 1987, and the station was maintained only a year before, it seems it likely to be the one marked as 'maintained', so I log it as Good. Happy to be corrected if anyone knows better. It is marked as a trig on my Explorer 180 (Edition A, Revised 1998, Corrections 2001). It is marked on the 1975/6 1:2500 map, but not on the 1980 1:10k map (Old-maps). I viewed from the adjacent canal tow path - you can find pictures of the derelict site on the web. On a subsequent visit to the area (20/5/12), I found a Fenomark of unknown origin set in the canal towpath at SP4836116777 - did BWB use Fenomarks? This site has an excellent view of chimney.

This block was also levelled, and is shown as a BM on the 1972 1:2,500 map S of a fence in a field. It is not listed as a BM in the on-line BM data base. Since 1972 a house named Foxridge has been built on the site (see 1991 1:10,000 map). I only surveyed the site from outside the gate, but I think the site of the block is either under the house, drive or path. It seems unlikely to have survived the building of the house.

Parked near the radar station to the W, and headed down the track through a gate marked No Entry, Permissive Footpath, then the trig is short distance off the track. Found quickly as part of the Block was clear on top of a boulder and earth bank, then only a little gardening was required to reveal the Bolt - a standard trig bolt. The Block is marked by a number of other stones. Excellent views.

Close to the Eden Project. Access was by the footpath that enters the site to the N. Then another FP takes you just N of the trig. There is then as short piece of wood to get through; the wood has aspirations to be impenetrable! However, there is a way in from the W (beware of the barbed wire). The Block is on top of a junction of two banks. Although small it was easy to reveal, the mark is a flat topped rivet.

The Platform is on the SW side of a track leading up from the farm/holiday cottages at South Torfrey. As is often the case it is set in a boulder and soil bank. The track is not a ROW, so I asked at the farm and was given permission to access. The start of the track is not easy to find - it is round to the left of some farm buildings. The track is little used and was sodden. The Platform was covered with turf, but a little gardening revealed the Bolt. The best views of the Platform are from the neighbouring field.

Definitely not where it should be - could have been buried, broken up or moved elsewhere. There are bits of concrete in the field, but none that I found were obviously of OS origin. Pity because the fields to the S and E are pasture, but there is a young crop in the field where the trig should be. This field also has a new barbed wire fence around it, which may have provided the excuse to lose the trig. Delightful stroll up from the S.

Station SU59/T056. Block. In the scrubby verge on the W side of the Shillingford to Wallingford road, by the start of a FP across the fields. I measured the Bolt as being 3.1 m from the northerly gatepost and 3.5m from the FP sign. Spade job. To begin with I found a solid surface, which I think is the buried drive into the field, but the concrete was not really OS quality. Then I tried to the N of this and found the block with the bolt almost under a sapling, about 20cm below the surface. I left it clear, but I guess it will become re-buried. Not a bad location, with good views to the W to the Ridgeway from the adjacent field.

I measured it up, it is 6.3m NW from the Bolt, and 5.1m from the road sign. It is on the surface, so there is no need to prod. Top still unscrewed and liftable - hence Slightly damaged. I have tried to estimate the grid ref, relative to the other Passive station, using the distance and the photo, based on the direction the road takes.

Station NY11/T019. Block, levelled with the height of 872.032m - described as Ht to Bolt in Block. Computed 1952, maintained 1984. I did not find the Bolt - I did not have long to look. All I found was a stone with what appeared to be an OS arrow on it by the side of the shelter. Looking at OldMaps - the 1978 map shows the shelter but no trig. The 1956 map shows the trig, but no shelter, and is difficult to compare (the shading is completely different). The 1919 and earlier maps show a trig (presumably an earlier mark) plus a bench mark. I wonder if what I found is a remnant of that. Lovely spot - mist was intermittent on the way up the west side of the horseshoe - the mist was thick on the east side going down. I trust a future visitor will find the bolt, there must be a good chance it survives.

OS remnant of an earlier mark?

Station SP91/T009. Listed as a Bolt (and a Centre, which is the Intersected station). On the viewing parapet of the Bridgewater Monument (open summer Saturdays and Sundays, NT members free, others modest charge). Superb viewpoint. I did not found a Bolt, but found a very well polished flat-topped rivet. But the location matches the coords. Simple trig on the coords of the Monument Centre, the Bolt, and the roof station of Ashridge (straight down the drive), suggests it is a little under 45 degrees clockwise from the line down the drive, and a little under 2m from the centre. This matches the location, taking into account the rivet is at a corner of about a 3m square on the viewing platform. I guess there is the possibility it is the stem of the Bolt that remains, but it appears in good condition, with no sign of a fracture?

Station SX06/T48. Cornish Platform Bolt. Shown on maps as being on the field boundary (presumably a stone bank cum hedge). However, the hedge has been removed, and the farmer has left the platform (much appreciation to him/her), so it now stands in isolation on top of the hill in the middle of the field. A very fine example of this type of trig station. A little damage to one of the vertical edges, but otherwise vgc. The platform is about chest high, with the bolt at the centre. There is a convenient gate on the road to the south.

Station T075 in Secondary Block SU59, listed as an Order 4 Block. Computed 1960, maintained 1986. Unlike the 1:50k map, the 1:25k map doesnt show a disused railway bridge over the road, but that is what I found. Access onto the bridge from the south side of the bridge. There is a gate on the west side of the road, which gives access to a second gate leading to a track up on to the old railway (closed mid 60s). I was wondering if the Block was still around when I saw a lump of concrete a few yards to the east of the bridge, south side of the old railway. The top had been skimmed to a plane (no longer horizontal), and there in the middle was a rivet. The block of concrete is sitting on the surface. Seems a reasonable candidate for the OS block. Although it has been disturbed, my GPS agreed with the OS grid ref to within about 7m (similar to the GPS error estimate). The top of the embankment was a surprisingly good view point.

Better gridref from OS site NY4602253524. This info puts the FBM a few metres NE of water compound, and says we are looking for a surface block probably buried under the verge. The distance from the production of the house gives the position along the road, but the hedge measurement is more dubious - is it in the same place?

This is listed as a Rivet and Mast (wind gauge mast). The rivet replaced an earlier Bolt. Building 60 was a former RAF water tower on the Harwell site. I visited the tower, courtesy UKAEA on 18 April 2007, and could not find the rivet - but at the time the mast survived. We suspect there had been work on the roof. The tower was demolished in September 2009, and I have before and after photos (from outside the security fence) as the mast was removed from the top. The area is now grass, and is now (2012) outside the security fence. Of greater interest than the patch of grass are some UKAEA site survey stations, which I believe are Fenomarks. The site fence has moved, and there are about 20 of these marks that are publically accessible. There is one in the bushes opposite the formner entrance to the water tower. It is about two feet in, and in line with the door to B150. It is beneath some rosebushes, and is often buried. It is difficult enough to spot when it is clear, you know where it is, and there are no leaves on the bushes - it is at SU4784787160. Easier to find is one to the W at the entrance to a car park on the projection of the kerb on the N side of Thomson Ave (SU4770687152). The most readily accessible is one on the W side of the A4185 just N of the junction with Curie Ave (SU4824187419). I show a photograph of one at SU4764487389 near a former roundabout on Hillside, which is 2m N of a lamppost. Their condition varies, those on the surface tend to be a bit battered; those buried tend to be in better condition. They are generally set in small concrete blocks. All grid refs to about 5m accuracy - they are from a hand-held GPSr.

Good condition, intact cap, in clearing in centre of new woodland, fortunately there are a number of wide firebreaks that radiate from the trig. I came along footpaths from the outskirts of Ford.

Superb viewpoint, great weather. After giving up on constructing replacement pillars, the OS records say it was converted to a Bolt. Their dates seem inconsistent - the Block was maintained in 1978, and the pillar was destroyerd in 7/83? I was worried the Block would be under a cairn. However, it is clear midway between the two cairns. It appears that the latest trig (a Vanessa) was levelled at Bolt height a little above the base. Looks as though the original Bolt was retained. It is of interest in that it shows the inner construction of the trig. There are bits of the concrete of at least one trig around. I had the company of two red admirals on the summit.

I quickly found a deep depression, and assumed I would find the Bolt at the bottom of it. I then had no joy with my tent peg. I remeasured from the OS plan to assure myself of the location. Still no joy - I was in the right place. I then noticed a concrete block dumped a few feet away by the side of the road. Clearing some grass revealed the bolt in the middle of the no-longer horizontal block. Clearly someone has dug the block out and dumped it (why oh why I know not). Current location a few feet south of the position on the OS plan (the road runs NW-SE), significantly closer to the road than it should be. Note there is no longer a layby at this point on the road. Parking a short distance away on the other side of the road (the fly-tippers have moved there).

OS plan was helpful - I used the 12.44m from the BT MHC on the other side of the road, and the 2.40 m from the road edge to give the target area. I never did find the BT MHC on the same side of the road. However, then the fun began. The verge was overgrown with nettles, and I failed to find anything prodding with my tent peg. However, after a couple of exploratory digs with my trowel, I found the corner of the block. Further excavation revealed the bolt. It was about 4 to 5 inches down - I had to go through many roots, but the soil provided easy digging. I left it clear.

Very pleased to find all three Wasdale passive stations. To find this one I recommend: the OS plan, a long tape measure to measure off the plan, a friend to hold the other end of the tape (as the useful 10.05m crosses the road), a tent peg to poke the right target area, and a trowel to turn the sod back once you find the block, which is a few inches down. I replaced the sod, as the verge is relatively neat.

I left it clear, but I didn't do a serious excavation job, so it will return to nature. It is to the W of the braced post (which was well-enveloped with greenery, but is identifiable as it is older than the other posts).

Station T047 in Secondary Block SU59, listed as a block. In hedge between playing fields and access field. To begin my GPS pointed into the field to the S and I had no joy. Then I thought you often find trigs in hedges. I dived in and a couple of yards away saw the corner of a concrete block. I cleared the leaves and found the bolt. I left it as I found it with leaves over the bolt for protection. Access from Masefield Crescent to W of B4017 Drayton Road (former A34 to Newbury - hence I guess the name), south side of Abingdon. Go across the playing fields to the swings in the SW corner. Then 5 yds to SE from SE upright there is a path through the hedge with a shallow ditch in the middle. The block is on the far side just in from the S side of hedge. Computed 1951, Maintained 1972. Not convinced the block is as horizontal as I would expect.

Listed as a trig in www.bench-marks.org.uk as S5546, with the comment 'pillar reported destroyed 27.7.50; estimated approximate location'. From the FB it would be built early summer 1949 - so it had a very short life. I guess it was replaced by the nearby Moneys Allotment. I visited the site on the off chance something had survived (as with nearby dead trig S5544 at Greenham). Noting the position as estimated, I strolled around the area but found nothing. Now wooded (& very pleasant), I can see this would be a sensible place for a trig in pre-wooded days.

How things can change in the space of 3 months. The site is now surrounded by temporary fencing. It has been cleared; the only things to survive are the track and some of the fence to the south. The metal gate and the metal gate posts rest against the fence. The rest has been flattened, as part of a scheme to build a new road junction (presumably as part of infilling the gap between Banbury and the M40). There is a good view from the top of the bank. I will be amazed if the block has survived, but I guess someone should check once there is public access again.

Success. My previous failure had irritated me. The surface block is there. Set further back than I had been looking, clear of the dumped rubbish. The 3.70m measurement on the OS sketch seems to refer to the distance from the hard core at the edge of the road, rather than the edge of the tarmac one would drive on. There have been a number of minor changes at the site since the OS photo and sketch. I left the surface block clear. Revisited 4/9/06 to photograph - I found the block still clear.

This trig seems to me to epitomise the best aspects of trigpointing. Against any objective criteria you would not come up with Extwistle Moor - it is off the main Pennine chain, there are higher tops near by, and the trig isn't even on the highest point. However, it was just a first-class stroll from the road at Widdop - I had the moors to myself. The day had started grim, but improved to sunshine and showers. Fortunately the shower was over Hoof Stone Heights, and I had the sun. The trig is in great condition, although the paint is getting a little faded. The plug is intact.

My heart sank as I drove upto this block. A new (and convenient) mini layby has been constructed; there has clearly been significant and very recent excavation work; much soil/mud had been very freshly dumped on the site and flattened. Nevertheless I got my tape and trowel out. I measured the distance from the NW corner of the grate as on the OS plan, and realised this was away from the worst of the disturbance and dumping. So I stuck my trowel into the soil, and there it was just below the surface. It is a pretty substantial block. I left it clear.

I'm uncertain as to whether it is missing. Access is difficult - the hedge is between horses and arable, and it is pretty overlooked. So I stuck to the footpaths. However, using binoculars, from the footpath to the south, I thought I could see the silhouette of a pillar (with a pallet to the side of it) hiding in the hedge. The light was indifferent, so I might be mistaken. But why would anyone remove a trig in a hedge?

Stoodley Pike has a 120 foot high monument on top of it. The OS Get-a-map website shows a triangle (a trig) there - as there is no other symbol on the map, the monument must be the trig. My South Pennines OL map (OL21) also shows the triangle, as does an ancient 1950s 1:25k map I have. However, maps apart I know of no evidence that there has been a trig there. I assume therefore there has been a triangulation station there in the past. I hoped to find a bolt or something (as at Grin Low). I did not, even though we climbed the pitch black staircase to the balcony. This leaves me uncertain as to how I should log the condition. Is it Good - the monument will last many more years. Is it Can't find, as I couldn't find the precise triangulation station, or is it Missing, as there is no pillar? Note the 1:50k map puts the monument in a slightly different position. Later note - as we now know it is an Intersection Point - Good seems appropriate.

As others have said there is no sign of this trig. My First Series 1:25000 map (Sheet SU49, copyright 1959 with major roads revised 1976) shows the trig on the north side of the track that runs along the wall bounding the north side of the churchyard. Was the water tank of its name located there before the current 60s/70s housing development?

Consequatively numbered trigs within 20 munites of each other (after Robin Cross Hill). Late autumn evening, warm golden sun, the valleys already in shadow, a handful of folk getting some bouldering in after work before the clocks change - great place to be. The damage to the trig seems to be long-standing as it predates the last painting.

It is there! Just inside the hedge on the north side of the arable field. I walked past it three times without spotting it. But it is only just inside the hedge, and easy to 'see'. The challenge is to realise you are looking at it. Having found it, it is in vgc. On the way back to the track I paced it. It was just under 100 good paces. You will not find it from the pasture on the other side of the hedge. I increased the score a bit simply on the basis it has such a splendid name.

I don't believe this trig still exists. The location is in the middle of an arable field, which had recently been harvested. I believe it would be straightforward to find were it still in existence, but I failed. It is marked on my old 1" map (dated 1967), whereas the nearby trig at Crooked Soley is not. East Soley is not marked on more modern maps (e.g. my Sheet 174 dated 1979), whereas Crooked Soley is. The spot heights of the two trigs are not given on the respective maps. What is the history of there being two trigs so close together?
