Passed by on my allotted hour of walking. Countryside gradually turning yellow as OSR comes into flower. I wonder how far through its lifecycle we will be before normality returns? [FB for logging purposes only].

No evidence of the destroyed trig pillar. Couldn't find the buried block.

TP2033 The trig pillar would have been in this approx. location. Maybe the buried block still is?

Odd downslope location but views in a couple of directions I guess. No sign in edge of copse / garden, suspect the OS took it away, 4/75

Parked and walked up the nearby ROW - no sign so gone with the flow - this is one of those that could be found in a nearby hedge row fingers crossed.

Parked roadside, hopped over b/w fence. Walked field boundary to approx location of trig but nothing visible. Powder (or Powderham) Castle is a small 12th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress. Possibly built during the Anarchy in the reign of King Stephen, in 1147 it was a siege castle to nearby Barley Pound. Near-circular motte with its uneven summit built of sand containing large flints; indications of a bailey to NW. Good views to N, E & S. Motte and trees to W obscure views in that direction.

First android log - neat! Another Ramblers footpath survey, first bluebells, at last.

Ignored this record for some time, seeing it was definitely missing and assuming it to be in the grounds of Farnham Castle. But having bothered to look at it, discover that it actually refers to Powderham Castle (a 12th century earth and timber fortress, of which little remains) and (if it were here) would be my nearest trig point. According to the OS database replaced by a buried block in April 1975. Adjacent footpath is worth a visit however for the good views to the north, and on this occasion quantity and quality of local blackberries!

Fairly sure this is a definite but thre were a couple of people walking toward me from the distance as I was about to dive off the FP and noone to ask at the farm. Nothing visible on the OS map nor from any public access point ca 100m away. Someone else will have to confirm though
