We looked at previous logs and in my wisdom I decided that the best approach would be from the west across open ground. We parked on the yellow road from Pen Machno and set off. What a difficult walk! A mile of unrelenting bog, tussock grass etc without any form of path to be seen - even the sheep didn't seem to walk this way! Once we reached the forest it was quite easy to find the trig, and then the long slog back again. Not a route to be recommended. Local stone, plug with raised lettering.

After crossing the river and just before you get to where the trig should be there is the remains of a ROC nuclear bunker in a fenced off bit of land covered in nettles (see Mellor TP 4768).

We parked at Tan Hill and the ring was exactly located as described in previous logs - behind the fence where it turns a corner.

I'm afraid previous predictions have come true. We parked at Kiskin Farm, crossed the bridge - where you are supposed to seek prior permission or wade across the stream (what a load of nonsense) and took the footpath past Annaside to the coastal path. The trig has either fallen off the cliff and is now buried by earth etc (I had a good look around and couldn't see any sign of it) or has been removed - a less likely alternative although one can live in hope. Another one bites the dust!

I don't know how other approached this pillar but we (Shane, my brother Jim and myself) parked at Sand Gate and took the coastal path south. The path runs along the foreshore and when you get to the farm there is a gate which says 'No entry'. I tentatively climbed over this (with Jim and Shane lokking on) and approached the farmhouse. There was a light on inside so I rang the bell and knocked the door but got no answer. There were two 4x4s parked in the yard but nobody seemed to be about, so with heart pounding I approached the trig and recorded it's details, expecting to be challenged at any minute. I wasn't, so made my way back to Jim and Shane and the safety of the footpath. Not a very welcoming place but quite a nice trig. Plug with indented lettering.

We spent two hours looking for this trig three weeks ago, before I had read previous logs. After reading Phil Richards log I thought it would be easy this time - what a mistake! I did'nt remember the bit about the view to the west but knew it was in the dense clump of bushes (something like a small-leaved privet) that covered a couple of hundred square metres just down the hill from a large pheasant rearing pen (not in use at this time of year). I wrongly assumed it must be on the higher ground - another mistake. My modus operandi of searching was to lay on the ground and look through the stems of the bushes hopefully seeing the 'trunk' of the pillar. I saw plenty of tree trunks but no trig. After peering into the bushes on the top side I then changed tactics and crawled through the stems a bit lower down, working my east to west. Some places you could stand up, and there are a few slight paths through the bushes (one with a hose pipe that must feed the pheasant pen) which made things a bit easier. I had almost given up (I had been there nearly two hours, it was raining - and getting heavier - and Shane was well cheesed off) when I eventually found it. It is just inside the bushes - you can just about see it from the outside if you know where to look - on the bottom of the slope, covered in moss as has been mentioned. It's not far from an oil drum with fencing around it. Good luck to the next person who looks for it!

He told us that since being built it had been used four times by the OS, but that the RAF use it as a simulated target for their fighter planes, which he is not very happy about.

On our 1995 Outdoor Leisure for North Pembroke Carn Llidi has a trig point symbol shown at the summit, although it's not recorded anywhere. I decided to take a closer look (it's a fine hill anyway - with a bit of a scramble to get to the top). At the summit there are the remains of a bit of concrete with three bolts sticking out - probably not a trig, and at the side of this a very shiny, with wear, surface block. The brass centre is the same size as the ones found in the Lakes with concrete rings around them (see Branstree) but alas there is no ring here.

We took the footpath from the north west at Bwlch-y-pant farm. No finger boards but no problem. The pasture was full of cows with calves and one lone bull who we didn't spot until later! The area around the trig is an agricultural dump for old cars etc - which detracted from the glorious views. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

It's definitely missing from where it should be! We walked to where it should be and the only thing half way down the cliffs was an old pillbox. Chris (of the HEATHENS) said that she had seen the log which said it was on the beach near some caravans so we had a look at Tunstall but didn't go onto the beach because of the tide - so it could well be still there. We'll have a look when we are in the area again. It's times like this when you wish you'd taken full advantage of the info on this site. If I'd read Iainmac's log I would have looked a bit harder!

We asked at the security lodge and the chap there was very helpful and gave us a map of the site and marked where the trig was. He looked at us a bit surprised when we said we would rather walk than take the car, but it was OK. The site was an aerodrome between 1942 and 1945, training bomber crews. After the war 53,000 liberated POWs were flown into Westcott until it was taken over by the Guided Projectile Establishment, which became known as the Rocket Propulsion Department, under the control of RAE Farnborough. In later life it was transferred to the Royal Ordnance Factories which became part of BAE in 1987. In 1997 Westcott Venture Park was created, a secure industrial estate, which it is to this day. All this information was given to us by the security man, who also had a healthy interest in trigs (he knew what one was for a start!). A 'nice' visit, reaffirming our faith in human nature.

We parked in a passing place opposite the track that leads to the mast and had just climbed over the gate when the owner of the land, an elderly lady, captured us. She started off giving us a bollocking for trespassing etc, why hadn't we asked permission, what were we up to and so on. I said that it was difficult to know who to ask permission of, that we weren't doing any damage and that we just wanted to look at the trig pillar. She mellowed a bit, took her wellies out of the car, climbed the gate and came with us. She said that they had had trouble with vandals at Bigyn, the empty farmhouse that the family own just up the road, and that she was very wary of strangers. We ended up having a good chat about trigs and I explained how they were used at night etc. She said the trig had last been used about six years ago, and that she was thinking about painting it white and what would be the best sort of paint. We parted the best of friends! Good views, especially to the north west. Plug replaced with plastic/metal insert.

The 2 plaques that Saginanivalis mentions are quite interesting.

We took the bridle track that heads north-east just before Lletty Brongu Farm. This is a pleasant walk which skirts the west side of the hill eventually coming out to the east of the summit. We followed the fence line back to where the trig should've been but there was absolutely no sign of it. I knew the trig had been 'destroyed' in 1961 but thought it might still be there, on it's side or in pieces. All the land around here is ages old sheep pasture by the look of it so it might have survived to some extent - unfortunately not! Close to where the trig should have been is a temporary mast erected by Western Windpower with anenometers on it (see our log for Munydd Marchywel) so there might be wind turbines up here at some time in the future - heaven forbid! Excellent views in all directions and all in all a very pleasant spot - everything going for it apart from a missing trigpoint. The FB no was S2054 according to the Trigonomy database.

We thought this trig might be difficult as the development of Tircoed Woodland Village has overtook our map somewhat. Drive to Tircoed and after you cross the motorway there's a roundabout where you turn right along 'Y Cyswllt'. At the end turn right along 'Llyn Tircoed' and then turn left up 'Ffordd Ger-y-llyn'. Turn left up 'Ffordd y Goedwig' and at the end park at 'Tawelfan'. I think those directions are right but anyhow you end up at the high point of the houses. A woodland track through a wooden gate is the continuation of 'Ffordd y Goedwig', and follow this for about 150yds until you see a fainter track up through the trees on your left. Follow this until it comes to another woodland track, turn right and after about 40 yds turn left onto another faint track (between a large and small deciduous tree) which will eventually take you to the trig, which is to the left of the track. Passable views. Tarmac plug.

Presumably they're considering putting a wind farm up here if the winds are viable - another blight on the landscape.

We'd just done eleven trigs in the Leeds area with my brother Jim, when he suggested finishing off the day with a pint. He directed me to the Spring Rock near Norland Moor where lo and behold the FBM is. We don't normally look for these but as we were parked next to it I thought we might as well log it. Unfortunately the pub was shut!, so we had to carry on to The Moorcock (a better pub)for a couple of pints of Guinness.

Go through the gate keeping the hedgeline on your right and follow it until you come to another gate which gives access into the field with the trig.

We parked at Burlorne Tregoose and took the track south from there, which seems to be a right of way judging by the horseshoe tracks etc. We carried on up the track by the side of the wood and eventually could see the barrow across the pasture, covered by a large clump of gorse. It started snowing pretty heavily at this stage so we didn't hang about. The trig is in the middle of the gorse and in apparently good condition, with a plug with heavily indented lettering. The by-now snow covered pasture was populated by a large herd of bullocks but they didn't take any interest in us - too cold to get up and have a run around to intimidate the walkers! This would be a nice walk on a good day but not in the middle of a blizzard! When we got back to the car I decided we should take the shortest route back to a main road, i.e through Burlawn to Wadebridge, not realising that the downhill bit through Bishop's Wood has a gradient of 28% - more than 1 in 4!.

This is one of the shittiest trigs I've ever been to - literally! We parked on the lane down to Trythance just past the road that goes down to Trevean. We went through the gated farmyard and turned right along the footpath to Trevalsoe. After the first stile I headed up to the top right hand corner of the next field and climbed over the hedgebank. I headed to the hedge with the trig in it and realised I'd have to climb into the next field to have a decent look at it. This involved stepping across some congealed cow shit and climbing over a low hedgebank. The trig does indeed look like an ivy tree as NR says. I climbed onto the plinth looking for the FB and managed to fall off into brambles and the aforementioned shite - not very pleasant! I could have read the FB from the east side without climbing onto the plinth at all if I'd been a bit more patient! I didn't check out the plug as the top of the pillar is massively overgrown and I was wary of being spoted by the farmer. On returning to the car I had to change all my clothes; pants, trousers, vest, T shirt, jacket the lot - the only thing not contaminated with shite were my socks!

Retracing our steps we were stopped by the farmer who drove across the field in his Rangerover. He asked us where we had been and why we hadn't asked permission. I explained that it's hard to ask permission if you don't know which farmer owns the land, and that we weren't causing any damage; and he grudgingly accepted.

I'm adding this log to the TrigpointingUK database even though there has never been a pillar here and I couldn't find the 'low but visible marker stone' mentioned in the 'Retriangulation of Great Britain' published by HMSO in 1967. Pegler's Tump was a primary station (no 88) but because it was on an archaeological site and had a void underneath (the chamber to the barrow) there was never a pillar built there. In the event of the marker stone being damaged or moved substitute pillars were built at Stinchcombe and Symonds Hall. Both these pillars have FB S15** numbers which shows they were built in the 1930s and part of the primary retriangulation. The Tump itself is a very well preserved long barrow which still has its earth covering and burial chambers which can be accessed by a small opening. It is open to the public and is popular with new-agers, druids and historians. I wonder how many of its visitors know of its other contribution to the nations history - that of being one of the 300 or so primary stations of the OS Retrinagulation of Great Britain which took place between 1936 and 1962.

We took the same route as Rhayader Wanderer and arrived at the track that heads up from the farm with no problems. The narrow strip of land, which has a series of jumps on it, seems to be well walked as R W says, but it is not a public right of way. The house at the end of it where you leave the public footpath is being done up and we noticed a load of fencing timber so it might not be as easily accessible for long. On arriving at the farm track there was a lady in the field opposite clearing up horse droppings so we had to approach her to get permission to visit the pillar, She was very friendly and even helped me look for it. The plastic bales have receded since Father Teds visit and it was behind the front one on the north side. The trig looks as though it has been painted a bluey-purple colour in the past.

Well found Father Ted. We didn't fancy approaching through the road works so parked at the entrance to Packington Lane on the A51 and took the bridle path west from there (you can't park at the entrance to the bridle path as there are signs up saying that you could be clamped). We walked to the end of the quarry and where the bridle path heads west took the footpath which heads south west. We kept to the hedgeline and then followed a hedgeline south east which divides the two quarries by the look of it, (both quarries seemed to be totally deserted at the time of our visit - Sunday afternoon). This brought us to the tarmac road which gives access to the mast. The trig is about 50 metres to the south east of the building, so I would say it has wandered north and very slightly east. It seems fairly safe from future quarrying activities at the moment. Tarmac plug.

I photographed Shane next to the pillar and noticed that the old lady from the B & B was in her front garden. What a miserable old trout she turned out to be - saying we should have asked permission before going up the 'private road' at all (I can't quite figure out how you'd do that).

These concrete rings were used to identify secondary stations, there'll be a concrete block with a bolt underneath the marker, and comprise a concrete ring with a phosphor-bronze ring running through it which can be located with a metal detector. Apparently they were usually buried but the erosion of many feet has exposed this one. The only other example I've seen on TrigpointingUK is Branstree near Appleby in Westmorland. We parked at the Blencathra Centre car park and saw a red squirrel as we were putting our boots on. Fantastic views and a great walk.

As Lathama says this one took a bit of finding. We parked just north of Whitemoor Cottages and went down the track on the right which is signposted 'unmetalled road'. Where this track meets the open field turn right over a gate and up the hedgeline. At the other side of the hedge are farm buildings etc which are not shown on my 1993 Outdoor Leisure map. At the top of this field you meet a farm track (also not on the map) which must be a rear entrance toi the farm. Follow this away from the farm until you get to the first hedgeline on your right. There is access via a gate and the trig is about 250 yards along the hedgeline. The trig is built into the hedgebank with only the top 18 inches or so above it. I felt down all four sides despite the nettles and thorns but couldn't feel the rebate for the FB. I didn't want to start digging around too much as we were in view of the new farm.

We parked at Upper Quinton and followed the Heart of England Way for about a kilometer until it passes a thin strip of woodland, which heads east up the hill, just past Lower Clopton Farm. At the top of the field there is a stile of sorts which gives access to the hill fort, which suggests there is public access of some sort. It's quite a pull up Jarrett's Brow onto the top.

We saw a short eared owl as we approached the trig which was totally unexpected. At the trig there was a young chap repairing the stone wall who gave us a piece of priceless stone masons advice. 'Whenever you pick up a stone' he said. 'it has to go into the wall, because you don't want to be picking it up twice'.

This was our last planned trig of the day - 23 in all - which is a record for us, although saying that most of them were next to the road on hedgebanks, with only a few involving a walk or having access problems. When I pulled off the road I felt the car slide a bit but wasn't too worried. We visited the trig and went back to the car looking forward to a few pints and an evening meal. Then I couldn't get the damned thing back onto the road, even with Shane's not inconsiderable weight giving me a push. Eventually a farmer type pulled up in a 4x4 and pulled us out no problem, although his rope snapped in the process. I dived into my wallet to give him a tenner for his trouble and horror of horrors the smallest note I had was a twenty. He graciously accepted this and we were on our way again, after only being delayed for half an hour, thankfully. C'est la vie!

Fasgadh description about the oddity of this trig pretty well sums it up. It is listed on the 1994 list of trigs from the OS.

This seems to be the first visit for quite a while. It's quite a long walk from the parking place on the B3390 or you can take a chance andf drive all the way to the trig. The track is very rough and being used by New Age travellers as a place to camp. We drove so far but parked about half way along when one of the travellers said they wouldn't take their old van any further never mind a car like ours (the Roller). The attendant dogs were friendly when we set off. The trig is where it should be but concealed by gorse. It's opposite a prominent tumulus before the track starts to drop.

Our last trig on the Island. The Isle of Man is an island of contrasts where the trigs are concerned. The ones above 400m (6no) are excellent with easy access. The ones below 200m (9no), with the exception of Corrins Hill and Dreswick Point are more problematic with access, livestock etc as described in our entries. We ascended Snaefell by train (10 pound rover ticket for all IOM transport). The summit has excellent views and England, Scotland and Ireland were visible (66 miles to Ireland!) according to the nearby viewfinder. There are also two masts and other hill furniture which detracts slightly. Tarmac plug.

This trig is behind the now defunct Isaac Newton Observatory up in the woods. The public footpath doesn't go past it but there are no fences to prevent a visit. Any trespass signs have faded away although a sign on the observatory warns that it ia a dangerous building. The Royal Observatory moved to Herstmonceux from Greenwich just after the war and then on to the Canary Islands in the 1990s - which is where the Isaac Newton telescope now is. This must explain the presence of these three trigs here. They all have late numbers which suggests being built later than the thirties. Transit Meridian has a GPS plaque and also a strange quite large mirror device bolted to the top which is directed towards Solar (the trees have been cut down to provide a clear sight path).

The lady in the teashop told us that Solar is still very much in use and that the building with the white domes behind it is where they fire lasers at satellites for GPS purposes. It is well maintained on a patch of green and in the college part of the grounds which are not included on the map/guide which yoiu get when you pay the entrance money and so theoretically out of bounds I presume.
