moved from the site of the services that are now next to the M1. Sitting proudly on the road way at no.20 Clements Gate, delight to see it and a worthy diversion from my route. Enjoyed a cup of coffee and a brief natter, in their lovely kitchen, with Jim and Carly. He not only rescued the trig pillar but the house they live in which was recommended for demolition when Jim took on the courageous task of buying it and renovating it. Lovely couple.

Originaly sited @ SK465253 [now a lorry park] but removed during construction of motorway service station in 1998. Rescued by myself from rubble tip on site and placed outside our house [20 Clements Gate, Diseworth - SK454245] in October 1998. OS requested a plaque be displayed denoting relocation. This I am still in process of acheiving. The plaque, when finished, will dislay the following message:- 'This Trig. Point is an ex trig. point - it is no more. It is not charted and has no cartographical purpose or accuracy and is definately deceased. It was formally sited at SK465253, now a part of the lorry park at the motorway service station to the East of the village. At that location it marked a spot height of 93 metres AMSL. It was donated by Ordinance Survey in October 1998 and was resited here to remind all villagers and walkers of views we once enjoyed. And also for the benefit of passing dogs, who are much relieved - frequently. This trig. Point now stands at:- SK455245 N52.48.982 w001.19.549 At 66metres AMSL. I know this because my sat. nav. tells me.'

Like others before me, I just couldn't resist having a peep as this, as I had tried twice before to furtively scour the Service Area. I would very much like to know how RoPeHe managed to find this as it's on a deadend lane so passing traffic doesn't exist!! Anyway, apart from a couple of chipped top edges it's fine! Original plug with slightly-indented letters. S sighthole closed, the others open. No paint. Quietly residing on the lane-side.

I just had to go and see where this one had been relocated following the bag by RoPeHe. She now lives down this quiet county lane opposite number 17 in much more peaceful surroundings than a Service Station. She appears to have suffered some damage to the top corners may be in the move.

Not quite sure what condition to log this one as! The pillar is "Definitely missing" from its original location SK 46488 25241, but is in "Good" condition, complete with Flush Bracket, Spider and Plug, just over 1km away at the side of Clements Gate in the village of Diseworth. I don't know whether "Toppled or moved" quite had this sort of thing in mind - maybe we need a new category of "Relocated" - but then a condition qualifier would still be necessary! By the way, thanks to Jon Rouse via Trigonomy for pointing the way to its new location.

I needed my best anorak on to bag this one. There I was wandering around the corner of a Service Station knowing already that what I was looking for was not there. I thought I discovered the base of the old trig at one stage but it turned out to be a concrete covering for an electrical cable conduit. I did discover two things. This is quite a well landscaped Service Station compared to some with a woodland area planted near where the trig used to be. Secondly it made me realise that if there is a value to a waste stream then a real industry springs up. The pallet recycling operation set up in the corner of this Service Station valued its pallets so much that they are chained up to prevent further recycling taking place.

Had a bit more time today so I approached the site from the service station, as the pillar is still marked on my latest 'Explorer' sheet 245. However, in spite of a long search on the new embankment [to the perplexity of some HGV drivers] it simply isn't there!

Spent 15 minutes looking for this. Since my map was produced there is now a motorway service area and also a mobile phone mast in a protected area with the associated paraphenalia. I even rumaged through the New Age Travellers' encampment to no avail. I think this might have gone! Good view over the M1 and the runways at East Midlands Airport if you like that sort of thing.......
