Quick stop off en route to a family visit in Northampton. Easy access from CP by solicitors. Trig is in reasonable condition - all s/holes buried in leaf litter, asphalt cap but structurally sound. Nearby air shaft is interesting, although I wonder if the roots of the immediately adjacent tree have penetrated the canal tunnel yet!

Easy to access from carpark by solicitor. No views and rather dark and dank place. The Air shaft built in 1925 is about the only thing that makes this trig interesting.

From memory I think we struggled to find a quick and easy way over the wall/fence to this, well I did! But it didn't take too long and is a relatively easy bag next to the tower.

No view whatsoever. Proximity to air shaft for Blisworth Tunnel is the only interesting point about this trig.

Asphalt cap. By tunnel vent which was built 1925, and an old bramble covered water tank.

FB Number: S7239  Condition: Slightly damaged  Score: 5/10

Mossy and crumbling edges is all I can say here. Finally after 9 years I come back and find what was there all along. Comparing my photos from my last unsuccessful visit (which I didn't actually log on here) I can see now why i missed it. The dense undegrowth that completely hid the trig in 2003 is all gone. Probably due to acid rain, global warming, or more likely, the current drought! Now the change of condition: Looking at the photos of others and seeing the moss eating away at the flaking crumbling edges, I reckon we should now class this one as slightly damaged. Its been going that way over the last few years and its just a matter of when we actually pin the changeover down. Its a bit arbitrary I know but i think there are other trigs in the same state that are classed as slightly damaged so I'm voting for this one to go the same way.

Parked up and did the fence hopping reccomended by previous visitors whilst Mrs Ted went and bought some apples and cougettes from the nearby farm. I am hoping the latter will be baked under some pastry some time today if I lucky.

Cycled up from boat moored at Gayton. Intriguing spot, trig stands next to one of Blisworth canal tunnel construction shafts - now ventilator. Pillar covered in moss.

Very interesting spot with the interesting canal tunnel shaft nearby. Seen a few of these dotted around but this is the closest we've got to one. Took some photos at the trig. Access not too bad - once you find a gap in the hedgerow then it's all clear on the other side, and you can't really miss the trig. Good 'un :)

Located a few meters off the road on top of small hillock, no views due to density of tree cover.

Trigbagging sometime late 2005. Remember it being quite difficult to find because of all the undergrowth.

We parked at the side of the road and I hopped over the barbed wire fence. This bit of woodland almost seems to be like no-mans land. The tunnel air shaft is quite interesting. The trig is quite green with algal growth. Tarmac plug.

Hard to access this, as to the north there is an on-going business park development which has a high fence blocking off the trees and to the south is a stud-farm which has equally high fences and CCTV's. Found the hole in the hedge used by a previous logger and got there that way! In deep woodland adjacent to one of the Blissworth canal tunnel ventilation shafts.

Passing within 5 metres twice daily at the moment. Thought my local hill deserved better photo and it would have to be without the canopy of leaves so I stopped for a moment.
