Cycled up road to farm from A44. Then followed hedge by grassy patch. Climbed over barbwire fence and ripped joggers on it. Its in a bit of a copse so no views.

The trig was easy enough to find with a gps. I too loved the old treshing machine nearby. On walking back to te main road a lady stopped in a Land Rover. I think she owned the farm but was pleasant enough and described how quote a lot of trig pointers had popped by over the years each with their different habits of bagging trigs. One lady insisted on walking around the trig point before claiming she had visited it properly. She even talked about painting it white to make it easier for us to spot.

Spotted on the TomTom display from the downloaded POI. Not a great trig - off to the left of the farm drive and in a hedge with another fence before it. The trigs only saving grace was that between the track and it was an old threshing machine! Me, Mum. 252m

Taken by Mum as she didn\'t want to step over the fence In a short while, with undergrowth, this will become really hard to see!

parked next to water tower and a quick nip over very wet grass, would be very difficult to spot from this side in the summer with the trees.

Parked on minor road to the west, then walked back along A44 and up drive. Trig hard to spot in summer vegetation, but the wire at the north end of the coppice is easy to cross.

Easy one, a quick hop off the farm drive. Changes since the map include a new shelterbelt that hides the pillar in the original hedgerow. Views westward only. Intact and good condition. Number contiguous with the lost Bromyard pillar. Bit of a fright when somewhing fell in the farmyard without obvious cause. The watertower was a well remembered landmark, but is now hidden by trees - marilyn baggers should still visit, as the summit is higher than the trig so may equal Hegdon, but Hegdon's trig is not the summit either. We have bought several tractors from near here.

Access not too bad off the lane,very muddy,reasonable views on the walk {200m}to the pillar but very limited from pillar which is within a small covert.

Quite well hidden even close up or maybe the photography is bad!

Flat topped hill, on the original list of Marilyns, replaced later by Lower Hegden to south. Pillar now on edge of strip of wood near water tower. Views mainly obscured.

An unusually high flush bracket number for this area! The pillar is situated in a small overgrown copse just off a farm entrance road on the A44 so it's hard to get at. The plug is all intact with indented lettering and one new rivet. There are traces of white paint on all faces. The concrete base is exposed on the east face. You can get some views eastwards through the trees but can't see anything in any other direction. Views may be better in winter.

Done as it was thought to be a Marilyn before being superceded by Hegdon Hill.

White pillar in hedge near farm, with FB on the farm side of a barbed wire fence, which necessitated a bit of crawling to get the number.
