Log #229. I don't believe the story CJO was told about it's removal, but I couldn't get close enough to confirm or deny, and didn't want to disturb owners further. I'm not sure access from east is possible without being very conspicuous. Counting this one as missing. [ExP-177/MiP-9/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-22/Other-6]

Spoke to the owners who said they had removed it about a year ago because "it was a danger to their two-year old". They were very reluctant to let us in the garden, but said the base exists still, largely because the top was "extremely hard to remove" and that they "did not want to dig down to the rest". Another on bites the dust. Approach from the east may reveal more.

Happy Days Chaps... the lil feller not only survived, but is now better cared-for than ever before... all sights remain underground and still rough around the edges while residing in the neatly trimmed back garden of #52 Hillman Crescent... Cracking Result!! :D

Barskiven Hill ..better than ever! :D

Still there! In a garden now on the boundary line between the older houses behind (seen in other photographs) and the newer ones in a cul-de-sac. The houses at the end of the cul-de-sac are not quite finished yet. Got near via a garden two along but the fence was a bit thorough and couldn't get closer than about 10m! The pillar has had the back garden fence built around it so just possible the little fella might survive as a garden ornament! No views, oddly enough.

Last chance to see Folks... this poor wee fella will be either buried or be in some new homeowners backyard in a few months, courtesy of Linwoods new Meadowbrook Housing development. Accessed from the SouthEast through a gap in the fence after working hours. Top cracked, cap missing and sights below ground level. ...Good Luck liltte feller!

Barskiven Hill ..under development... Good Luck little fella !

Should have been couldn't reach it. May still be there but the whole of the area behind the houses is fenced off as the new housebuilding gathers pace.

Waste ground to west is currently being landscaped - new housing estate would be my guess. An old lady objected to my parking outside her house (on the public road, first left after the Linwood roundabout), saying it was 'private property'. I told her where to go.

Behind a rear fence, but easy to access. First visit 7/09/1989, revisited 8/09/1990. Spider retained original OS centre plug back then. I see from IRMs pic that the OS plug thief has since visited. UPDATE 2015: Since learned that this pillar has been destroyed by namby pamby householders. I blame the planners and developers for this. They could have left the pillar outside the boundary fence instead of being so greedy for every square inch of land they could take that they ran the fenceline through the pillar. As for the nanny state these children are being raised in, I'm surprised they're even allowed outside, they might get dirty.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in August 1946 costing 6.9s.6d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as teriary station NS77/T145 in the Glasgow secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1968. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1971. .
