It took me ages to dig the flush bracket out. Only joking. In fact I thought this one had gone initially as I hadn't read the TUK page to know that it was mostly buried in the sea wall. I must have walked right past this one some 25 years ago when I walked this section of the Wales coastline. Today was one of those lovely warm and still October days that you make the most of knowing that autumn probably isn't too far away. I parked up near the exit to the village and walked the rest of the way down the quiet tracks.

Father Ted - love your comment! We parked in Undy church car park and walked along the flat lanes. Strange without hills. Took a while to find it but the OS Map app and GPS on my phone helped. Felt like I was cheating.

I Parked on the motorway bridge and followed the tracks, It looks like you could drive most of the way, although there is a private sign. Pillar is lost in the flood bank and only a few inches visible, there is some obvious damage to the top edge. Estuary and Bridge views.

#293 P#214 P2016#14. A walk along the lane in the dark to find a pillar that is in quicksand or they have built flood defences on top of it. Just a wee tiny bit peaking out which isn't helpful when you expect a full size pillar in the dark.

Easy walk from Severn Tunnel Junction except for the strong head on wind seriously hindering progress along the coast path.

I have put the condition down as good, even though I could only see the very top of the pillar as the rest was buried in an earth bank.

Found as YOSM 523. One of the more unusual trigpoints I have found. Only the top remains as the TP has been buried in a flood defence bank. It was possible to drive very close - despite the roads being marked 'Private' but we parked by the bridge over the motorway and grabbed a few geocaches on the walk. No opportunity to check the FB!

This is the lowest lying trig I have ever stumbled across (and you could stumble across it if you don't mind your feet!). I came from the east along the foreshore but there is also easy access straight to it from a track. Slightly damaged on the corners.

Slight corner damge.

Access via narrow unmetalled lanes from Magor/Undy. It is possible to drive to within 60m of the trig. Trig was at one time standing proud on the shore line, but when the coastal defence bank was constructed it was buried to within a few inches of the top as can be seen in the photograph. The centre metal cap is in place but there is damage to 2 of the top corners. Good views of the second Severn crossing.

9m above MSL - doesn't look like it to me - global warming (or isostatic recovery)? Easily accessible - drive to end of track (from Undy) and thereafter new gates / signs for Welsh coastal path. Great views of the Severn estuary; metal cap with indented lettering and a fair chunk out of the SE corner of the 'top'!.

Buried, just top couple of inches showing (maybe someone will dig it out one day?) Walked in from just past M Way bridge (police speed van on bridge over M4 and hidden from traffic below behind sign the crafty bugger!)See no reason why you cant drive to this one ...the S Wales formation fly tippers have been out in force ( I swear there is no part of the UK that suffers the level of illegal dumping that S Wales does,I counted 4 wheels,2x televisions 1 x Fridge and half a fitted kitchen and that was without looking too hard!) Add to this more manic dogs than you could shake a stick at and a pillar you can barely see this one is for the completists I think!

Parked just south of the 'Great House' at Undy. The roads are marked as private from there. Tried the footpath directly South west (ish) but too muddy and not clear, so resorted to the easy to walk cycle paths and tracks. Had I not read about the buried nature of this trig I would have marked it as missing! A nice spot - great to be buffeted by the sea wind! 9m Me

Here it is! No honestly, it is!

The pillar is sited inside a levee with only the top few inches showing; it has a metal cap with indented lettering. I parked at the end of the metalled road at Rogiet Moor and walked along the dirt and gravel tracks to the levee. There is a good view of the Severn Bridge and across the estuary to the industry on the opposite bank with low wooded hills of North Somerset beyond. Trees prevent a view inland but returning to the car across Caldicot Moor there is a view northwards of more wooded hills, the motorway and the village of Magor. The levee marks the boundary between two SSSIs: inland is Gwent Levels Magor and Undy; the other side is the Severn Estuary.

Just over the motorway and just past the road turning for toll booth collectors was an open gate but a sign saying PRIVATE ROAD. I decided not to risk getting locked in and so parked and walked in from here.

Not a pillar at all, unless most of it is buried, as only the top three inches is visible above the sea defence. My lowest trig point to date and hard to believe it is as much as 10m above sea level.

I'm assuming the condition is good because all that is visible of this trig is the top - which still has all it's brasswork and a plug with indented lettering. The rest of the trig is buried in the sea defence bank. Access is easy via tracks that can be driven down from Rogiet Moor and there are good views of the new Severn Bridge. The OS list the FB No as S3282.
