All intact. High quality/expensive housing closing in on all sides. This may survive as its on a PROW and adjacent to a national grid gas compressor site.

A quick walk from the road to this one an easy find beside the footpath.

Parked on the main road then along the footpath - Pillar good condition - bit of grafitti, likes the local hippies have been at it!

Passing by walking the Centenary Circle and noticed this trig point. I'm a keen geocacher but this is the first trig point I've bagged :-)

Easy bag for my last this evening - parked in entrance on A130 and walked up FP to the trig, passing some gas or oil pipe compound - dont smoke !!

possible to park on the main road but easier on the minor road that runs parallel to it.

Fairly uninteresting location with Trig situated just off the footpath with no views to anywhere. Spider and FB are all present and correct.

Parked the car on the grass verge by the gate. Unfortunately, due to some rather "gung ho" map reading on my part, I chose the wrong gate. Instead of a simple stroll along a straight footpath, we had to cross a golf course, scramble up an overgrown muddy bank, and squeeze through a small hole in a chain-link fence. The TP is in fair condition with (as mentioned previously) a couple of small symbols painted on. The concrete surface has crumbled slightly on the top.

The dodgiest thing about this pillar is crossing the A130 to get to it. It's been painted with a couple of transfers which are now fading - but the thought was there. Plug with indented lettering.

Easily found being located on the left hand side of the easily accessible public footpath about 200m from the gateway on the A130 Surrounded by thick brambles but possible to get close to the ??? face of the pillar. Pillar has been painted white in the past and has some blue/white astrological symbols painted on the ??? face. Plug and spider are intact.

Crossed River Chelmer and A130 to reach the pillar that was covered in brambles (very thick on top) but actually had some white paint still on it.
