Bath is full of hills and this is the first of three i need to climb if i am to bag all ten TP i planned to do today. So rather disappointing views, considering the height. FB number does not have S in front of it. See picture. This is only the second 4 digit FB i have seen like this.

A nearby notice suggests the location could be the sight for a park and ride scheme. So enjoy the location before it all changes.

Low score as woodland prevents any views from here. Good footpaths up from Batheaston. We parked near Brown's Folly first to bag the HuMp, Bathford Hill, then up to Bannerdown for this trig and finally across to Little Solsbury Hill for another trig. Some interesting walking along the streets of Bath and back and forth over the River Avon made for a longish but pleasant walk.

Logged at a lunch stop on way back from Wales. Somewhat sheltered from view in a clump of trees although it is at the edge. Surprising when so much of site is still grassland. Views are rather limited in vicinity even more so close to trig. Almost forgot S on number is above the numerals.

Had real difficulty finding this pillar as it has been engulfed by brambles and my OS may wasn't really too clear about its exact position. There is a resin plug replacement. Some traces of paint visible if you look carefully! It was too overgrown to see if any of the sightholes were open. No real views in any direction due to trees. Came face to face with a small muntjac deer on the way to the pillar which was rather nice.
