Accessed via field-edge paths from playing fields off Avon Road. Pillar is deeply enmeshed in a raised corner copse, not easy to get at this time of year.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. Easy to spot in winter. Nice path making a circuit of this and S4081 from the road. Revisit.

Found this trigpoint whilst caching along a new series that took me right past it. Tucked away up a little slope in the hedge. Good condition, though pretty enclosed within the hedge. Co-ordinates noted as: N51 44.196 E0 26.216.

1/4 this evening, almost hidden, located as previously mentioned, I was also helped by the slightly suspicious farmer who came to meet me. Tricky to get to - especially in shorts !

No GPS in use here and done off the cuff without reference to the site. Had I done so first I would probably have had an easier time finding it. I trotted up and down the path until I eventually spotted it well and truly concealed on a peak of ground densley surrounded by undergrowth and trees. I found a small opening to crawl inside and took the pictures that you see. Views to absolutely nowhere but Trig all ok.
