Easy drive up. Road turns to rough track further down and if ground is wet there is very limited turning space so in bad weather I would advise to walk the short distance from the main road.

An easy roadside trig, the road well surfaced and drivable despite not being shown on my sat nav. Further down the lane is an old bridge over the disused Grantham Canal, water-filled but weed-choked.

A roadside pillar with easy access as you can pull off the quiet, country lane right next to it. It’s in good condition (at the moment….) with all the metalwork in place. There is a new chip in one top edge adjacent to the spider end. I suppose it could have just fallen out or perhaps someone is having a go at removing the spider. I guess time will tell. The views are what you’d expect from a fairly flat, rural landscape; pleasant enough but not exactly stunning.

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers.

Pillar in good condition, complete with all metalwork. Plug has raised lettering and separate central insert. The low FB number reflects its early construction (08/04/1937) as one of the "substitute primaries" associated with Belvoir Castle. Nice view over the Vale of Belvoir.

Located on a side road between Plungar and Barkestone. The road quickly becomes a track and passes over the Grantham Canal and eventually leads near to Granby.
