The 5th trig I visited and logged as a YOSM . This is a place I had visited and enjoyed many times B.C.& T. ( Before Cache & Trig) . Today was hot and still , and the short walk to the trig. was delightful (I avoided the car park payment by parking at the roadside by the end of the bridleway and following the bridleway through a field of cows and horses) ) . The only other obstacles were the boxes of finds belonging to the archaeologists ( who had a dig in progress on the earthworks ) which they were cleaning on the path in the shade . A short climb up the iron age fort rampart to the pillar and great views .

Parked on the verge to the west and walked along The Leicester Round path up to the pillar thus avoiding the dilemma described by wrose. Great trigpoint this with fantastic all round views. Just wonder if even the Ordnance Survey would get permission to set a pillar on an important archaeological site nowadays but then there is a modern topograph.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked in the car park to the south-east. We also debated long and hard whether to pay the 2.50 parking fee for our twenty minute stay and use of the toilets. All I will say is that luck prevailed. A simple walk along the bridleway and the pillar soon comes into view as the ramparts are aproached. A slight climb gets to the pillar. It is in excellent condition and still retains an original indented letter type plug.

Magnificently sited on the hill fort - and yet again it's not marked on my edition of OS 129. Went to the toposcope as this was a windswept but clear day, then watched the kite-flyers before finding the GeoCache and then went up to the pillar. The concrete base is exposed all round. The original plug is still there - slightly-indented letters. No paint. N sighthole open, the others closed. The views [except to the SE where the copse obliterates it slightly] are great! This would be a lovely spot for a picnic on a warm summer's day. Fortunately the carpark ticket machine wasn't working!

At last, an interesting trig - though you can't convince me it deserves more than a 6 - I need to have had a good climb and be rewarded with a view to give more than a 6 I'm afraid. No change for the car parking machine but chanced it anyway.
