Bagged as YSM593 Bow Brickhill. Parked on road near church and followed paths to trig at other side of golf course. Loads of squirrels around. Found out on the way back we didn't need to walk as far down the road as there is a path past the house opposite the parking.

On way back after visiting an exhibition in Oxford's Bodlian library which included some maps. Like the previous log I thought I could walk, from son's place in Bletchley, but glad I didn't, though I forgot to bring an OS map...I took FP NE from just below the church but struggled to follow it because of leaves and ruts from tree maintenance, almost giving up. I remembered a log which said it was near the golf course boundary fence and followed a 'new' path more W-E, saw well-heeled golfers on the other side. I gave up, turned round and there it was five yards behind me near a rhododendron bush. No views as such, but gave it a six for the relief in finding it! Would be harder to find in summer.

I found a path up through the rhododendron jungle from the RoW to the North. Pillar is close to the golf course boundary fence, but you can see little of the course, and little else either.

Staying with friends in Milton Keynes and they brought me here whilst out on a walk as a surprise. No real idea how I got there though. Pillar in reasonably good condition but the original metal plug has been replaced by a compound one. In the middle of woodland so no real views but still a lovely area.

1 for proximity to woburn golf course, if you struggle to find it follow the course boundary fence its within a couple of metres. Sight hole contained metal tube with a visitors log~last logged 14 July but not recorded here. Scorcher today but probably a good one for a rainy day under the tree canopy.

Don't try and access it across the golf course opposite the reservoir. It's much easier to take the footpath from the parking space and then head across to it.It's actually just outside the golf course in what seems to be common land, although it is quite well concealed by bushes. Tarmac plug.

This is very close to geocache "Keynes Overlook". Same woods, and about 3 minute's walk away. However this trigpoint is buried deep inside the trees at the top of the hill and is obviously unused. The fact that it is in the "old" database suggests it is only there because no-one could be bothered to take it away. I Took pictures while I was there. Actual coordinates of pillar, after taking about ten readings and settling on the best average, is N52 00.060 W0 40.085 This trigpoint appears on current OS maps in green which suggests unused. I have an OS map from the 1960s, and on that it is marked in black, obviously very much still in use back then.
