From the sports pitches, up the side of the field past the solitary tree. Trig hidden away in a corner, getting a bit overgrown but thankfully not in the bramble patch. Plug intact. Unexpected views N.

Not easy to access from the west. The derelict golf course is a nono, as the new fences are uncrossable safely. Park at the recreation ground to the NE. Access through the double metal gates into the arable field is the only way and walk up the LHS of the field to the pillar at the top of it. There's no RoW

Parked at sports field and crossed road then followed hedge line on right up toward trig. The golf course is being fenced off and some work on the land is being carried out, as yet not affecting the trig point.

parked in the recreation ground carpark on craythorne road,almost opposite is a broken down fence gaining access to the harvested field,the approach up the field can be made on either side of the huge tree in the middle and once at the top veer left and the pillar can be easily spotted thanks to other people's efforts!the abandoned golf course is very eerie at this time of the morning!

bit of a struggle to find. parked up the dirt track to the north. Went over the gate with Ashtree farm sign on it. wandered up the overgrown field. in the top right hand corner, on the right 5 metres from the corner there is a east through to the field behind. harvested stubble there and trig is over to the right syringes by some nettles and hawthorn. unsurprisingly on the way back found Terri child balls on the field stubble.

Surreal situation on the edge of an abandoned golf course. Fairways like deep rough, greens just about can be made out

Parked in the playing field car park on Craythorne Lane, crossed the road behind and went through open broken gate. Followed right hand edge of field and continued straight on where field opened up at hill top to arrive directly at the pillar. 5 minutes walk, trig hiding in hedge but easily spotted even in the evening gloom.

Parked in the playing field car park and crossed the road – walked up the field next to the golf course – the field had stubble and hadn’t been ploughed – trigpoint disappearing into the hedge. Found five golf ball on the way back.

Belatedly ticked this one off on a ramble with Curryscrim and friends. Much easier to reach than thought - access via edge of golf course. In rough patch of ground at top of adjacent field.

Permission given by farmer at Cross Farm - though the TP is not on his land! We went across his field from the farmyard, over a sturdy fence topped with barbed wire, fought through the hedge and into the TP field.

No beacon in sight! Pillar in an untidy copse, by the golf course. I trespassed from the south, past two horses, past sveral 'we'll shoot you on sight' type of notices. Looks OK, with orgiginal plug. Private

We got access to this one by asking at the farm on Cross Lane. The photograph was taken on 11/12/2008 on a second visit whilst on a local ramble and accessed form Craythorne via the golf course.

Driving from Rolleston towards the golf club (N of the trig), car park on left (football pitches). Access to fields (massive tree in middle of field) is almost opposite the car park. As you get to the top of the hill, the field opens up, and if you follow the boundary on your left (adjacent to the TEE on the 18th) you won't miss it. Shame about the weather.

Hiding in the cow parsley. Some cunning is required to get at this one. I used the corner of the golf course. Field is recently planted, pillar on edge amongst fallen branches and intact.
