After doing a bit of a loop and working out I was in Hollywood, that I did use to know very well as I learned to drive around here. I finally found this trig. Its just by the side of a row of houses in some open grass. Never knew it was here...

Saw it on the map and decided to grab it whilst out on my motorbike, parked up close by, interesting how it has survived.

Back in the homeland under sad circumstances for my Uncle's funeral. I had played near this trigpoint as a child but really can't remember ever noticing it! In good condition considering location.

Easy to locate and access. Good to find a nice urban pillar that had not been damaged. The remains a a white paint job are evident, and is not hard to visualize what good views would have been there before the surrounding large buildings were put up.

Nice patch of grass near the flats. It made me imagine what the area must have been like a long time ago.

Did this one with Spunky Spider. Parked within meters of this one by some blocks of flats. I grew up around here at The Maypole and so did my cousin, Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran fame

Did this one whilst out with CherryBubb to bag our August daily cache. A very simple and easy approach and parking within spitting distance. Trig is in good condition considering its location, but right next to a tower block and surprisingly, we didn't see a single soul whilst photographing and recording details on GPS.

Visited on walk from Longbridge station via Cofton Common trig then back to Brum by bus from King's Norton. Followed pylons across to a development that doesn't exist on my old map. Interesting walk! 400th trig.

My first logged trigpoint. It's a tough area of Birmingham, but it was great to stop and look out around the city - there's a suprising amount of view to see!

I wish people wouldn't judge people in the area - this is south Birmingham and Kings Norton not central Birmingham. They seem to have less respect for bollards judging by the photo. Perhaps the electro-magnetic forces from the overhead electricity cables have rendered everyone respectful.

as the pillar is in the middle of council housing I expected to see damage or graffiti, I wire brushed the pillar and painted it white.

Intact pillar with central plug and tri-bracket. In amazingly good condition considering it is surrounded by tower blocks and completely open access land! I would have expected the paint-spraying brigade to have had a go at it by now. The only real view is towards the NW where you can see the University Tower and beyond.
