2nd re-visit. Hadn't intended to visit but easy access from my homeward route from lunch in Shifnal. The neighbouring house has been upgraded since my visit last year, with an extension and large windows looking out on the way to the pillar.

Parked on Offoxey Road. Accessed the field in which the pillar is located from the eastern entrance to the nursery, as there is no fence between the two. The pillar has been toppled and moved. Now lying on its side next to the south east corner of the nursery

Lovely cycle along Monarch's Way to get to this trig. It was easy to spot from Offoxey Rd just at edge of houses garden. Not far form its original place. Pity it has been toppled. Rather a lot of toys dumped in the field from the Preschool. Rather a sad trig, considering its name.

I drove past the end of the drive to the nursery and pulled into the next pull-in near the double field gate. I had no idea the pillar was not in its original position. I got my bino's out and spotted it, laid down, resting in the corner beneath a large conifer. What a dad sight. Being a weekend, the nursery was closed so no fear of being worried about stalking around. I skirted the field edge and along the fence boundary, took my photos and skidaddled. Nice to see the other photos which have logged the demise of yet another pillar. It needs rescuing!

First of, I hope, a series of bike rides to my nearest remaining pillars. 30km today. Walked down edge of stubble to fence corner. Trig looked like a fallen green wheely bin from a distance. Twelfth Night - a bloke was taking down the Christmas lights at Bishops Wood Village Hall. Primroses flowering!!

Accessed by a drive up the track past the day nursery. Parked at access point to field - 100m walk along field edge look for a conifer for its location on the corner of the nursery playing area. Another sad end to the pillar but at least it appears to have been laid carefully. How much would it cost to stand it upright again and securely locate it where it is?

Trig was in a straight line a short walk away from the gate, looking a little forlorn on its side. The muggy weather wasn't great, but it was a nice easy find (esp with the trig-detector (Sven) around).

As previous log we drove up to the nursery which has a greyhound training centre on the other side of it. Wasn't comfortable finding this one but hubby went off and got the pictures we needed.

Parked by a gate on the road to east of the nursery and walked up the drive. The owner was sitting in his pickup and I explained what I was looking for which confused him somewhat. From previous visitors' photos, I found the pillar by the edge of the adjacent crop-filled field. It is indeed a sad site lying on its side although I did manage to photograph the flush bracket. I had a long conversation with the gentleman who seemed genuinely interested in trig point and he was completely unaware of the pillar although it borders the nursry grounds. For future visitors, it might be wise to try and contact the nursery owners before going into the fields as he went inside to let them know I was close by. Although it is school holidays, the nursery is still open. He seemed quite serious about uplifting the pillar, although it is in the farmers field and will let me know its possible future. Yet another spreading of the trigpointing gospel!

As with a previous entry, this was my 2nd visit to this site, not wanting to nose around so close to an open childrens nursery with a camera last time . Piller is toppled and has been dragged to the edge of the field, by the corner of the nursery grounds.

Confirmed as moved from its original location to the side of the field; now lying on its side (a sad sight) at SJ8306909092 beside a stretch of hedge, overlooked by a childrens' nursery and a house.

This is interesting. It was upright on 6th June, but toppled by a few days later when visited by PYoung. So we can blame a clumsy farmer in the meantime!
