I was down in Bristol dropping off Mr N before we go on holiday ourselves so took the opportunity to bags some trigs that I haven't got to on my bike because of the hills around here. Parked car in road and walked up the track that goes around the back of the houses. Easy enough to find but it is being slowly covered in garden waste.

Use access point nearest main road @ ST628713 (FP end overgrown and impassible). Trig now behind large pile of cut branches and in danger of becoming totally engulfed. FB still visible for now

Should be Broomhill (one word) second visit here as I completely missed it last time. Loads of garden waste around. Next person should note large pile of bricks by garage doors. Trig is opposite them.

Possibly one of the sorriest looking pillars I've come across. Still partially buried by garden and building waste. However, I could not determine any damage and am unclear why many previous loggers have classified it as 'slightly damaged'. Access is easy enough being on a vehicle access track at rear of either 18 or 20 Belroyal Avenue. Pillar was found with cap missing, no plug; FB is of the BSM style. All sight holes buried. No views.

Bit of a sad location this one - Pillar is located on service road that goes round the back of the houses in Belroyal Aveneue (you can drive all the way) looks like it a bit of a tipping area and it is getting lost in rubble and garden rubbish. conditon appeared good to me.

Parked in Belroyal Avenue and walked between houses to access service lane to rear. Approaching from the south-east end of the service lane I encountered some undergrowth which I had to force my way through and eventually spotted the trig in the undergrowth and rubble on the left by a fence. Plug missing, FB faces NE but is very hard to see as so much rubble has accumulated up against the pillar! Sightholes not observed. Has to be the worst location for a trig point that I've visited so far! One point for interest as I saw a robin land on the pillar as I left.

The vegetation is not too bad at this time of year, but the rubbish is a real problem, obscuring almost half the pillar on the face fronting the path. Bluebeard's slab is still there, keeping bricks off the FB which is on the SE face, but a view of it is difficult.

The pillar is partially protected by brambles by the side of the service back lane for Belroyal Avenue and is sited next to a school fence. Builders rubble is strewn around its base, its plug is missing and it has FB BsM 3367. The top of Dundry Hill could be seen on the skyline to the southwest.

It hasn't improved! reached from the lane, through some brambles on a clear day you can see a fence! Lots of fly tipping and rubble One to cross off and move on quickly!

vgc, no cap or plug, BSM style FB. S side of track behind houses, just outside palisade fencing belonging to ?school. FB was buried in rubble; some pruning needed before I could get in to clear it. Easiest access from NE: track leads W, passes garages then N and E to trig.

Parked in Belroyal Avenue on a bend in the road by a footpath that takes you round the back of the housing estate. What a mess, flush bracket burried beneath rubble tried to excavate with no success

Best attempt at exposing the flush bracket

Turn up Belroyal Avenue just after the police station if coming from the east. Take the footpath on the corner and then walk up behind the back gardens of the houses to the trig. Pillar is on south side of track with FB facing east. Lawnmower and other debris still evident. Plug missing.
