Must have been dug up and removed when the Selby bypass was built.

As per ted's log and OS trig archive, Dest 08/86, long before the A63 bypass came this way. My GPSr placed it N side of cutting, a few metres E of footpath, in broom scrub. It appears the ground may have been lowered at some stage. Parking in the A63 layby I had an interesting little scramble to reach footpath level!

Stopped in layby and walked up not expecting to find anything. Gave directions to a couple following an old map that didn't have the new A63 road on it.

Spent the weekend prior at Scalm Park camping, so today visited Brayton Barff out of interest. Noted this is the first log for over two years. No sign of anything trig like - the young trees planted on the S side of the road in earlier photos have grown a bit. I guess S1918 went when the A63 was diverted around Selby. Shame, but this is not Yorkshire's greatest vista, although I don't mind Selby really. The Barff makes for a pleasant stroll, but this is not trigpoint country as such. So no trig, no golf balls but I did find a pack of polos. Did I eat any? No.

Today's visit was my first since 1984. I competed in orienteering events here on 10-07-83 and 08-01-84. The events were organised by the York based club Eborienteers. On both occasions the trig was a control point on the course I did. I have scanned part of the map showing the position of the trig at the time.

Gone. If its reported date of demise (S1918, destroyed 1986 OS/Trigonomy) is correct then this predates the bypass construction; maybe the golfers got it. Found a bag of golf balls but no base. Best guess is that it was on the SW side of the road and a little SE from the bridge. Given the scarcity of higher ground, the hilltop would have been a better trig site for views over Selby but presumably the woodland prevented that option. Perhaps there was a non-pillar station Brayton Barff East?

My GPS indicated gone directly in cutting but will return to see if I can find base sometime. On my first visit I may have missed seeing this one by only a few weeks; the new road doesnt seem to carry much traffic either.

another new road splitting everything in half. looks like the trigg's been sacrificed to the petrol god too. Found the base, left a golf ball on top.
