Loved finding this and the only one of ten today for which I hadn't read previous logs. It's still there, as described earlier, and the hedge is gradually consuming it. Bumped into a farmer/hand on a quad bike who had no idea it was there and enthusiastically disappeared to find it. "A what?" he said...."Oh Yeah....get on!....I'll ave a look". Maybe they'll look after it now, but it's a cracking trig to visit with excellent parking right next to it, although these things change with fencing etc.

The most hedge-consumed trig ever!

Initially though this was roadside and so struggled to spot it. We then realised it was on a field boundary some way from the road. Covered in vegetation and took some bashing down to see the flush bracket clearly. With Coineanach Hutch #47 pillar of the trip

Pillar sits at base of a field boundary embankment, measured at 23.6m N of a metal fieldgate post. It is being comprehensively consumed by the hedgerow and is tricky to spot. I made no attempt to clear anything. There seems to be a tree growing out of the top! hence spider not seen (if extant); sight holes not accessible to check; FB can be photographed.

Cold & Wet, but found it easy, I would love to come back with cutting tools and restore it to its former glory!

At last!! E face of hedge, with ash hedge saplings growing over the top. vgc with metal cap covered with soil, probably shallow letters. 20m N of road, 15m S of hedge bend. Hedge recently trimmed. I cleared some ivy and brambles away: trig reasonably visible - at present.

I struggled with this one,climbed bank twice from the lane,accessd field from both sides and still did not get a sniff of a pillar .It may be buried as they are down this way ,deep in the hedge but will be a winter log that gets a good photo!

Having seen ianmac's photos, I take it the trig is in N-S hedge just N of road. I must have walked over the top of it, twice. Curses. The rot set in this p.m.: Holsworthy Beacon, Lawhitton, now this :-(
