Water logged fields and plenty of mud on the boots to get to this one in February. Only when we were logging the Grid Ref did we note that something did not add up. Quick read of previous logs and we note its managed to move a good few metres in an easterly direction. oh well its got a mate in the form of a telegraph pole now. All metal work intact and still stood upright thankfully.

Nice Cheshire views from here. The pillar is not quite so photogenic stuck underneath the post but I guess it's much better than no trig at all.

Dropped off at Rode Hall as wife and daughter visiting the snowdrops and being picked up at Astbury Garden Centre later. Access from path north of Higher Smallwood Farm. One fence to cross in NW corner of coppice then followed field edge to trig. Stands by telegraph pole.

Walked across from Spen Green on footpaths to edge of wood near trig point. The trig is in a very muddy field with a root crop which is being use to feed a herd of cattle and one very large bull, take care !.

Parked at entrance to Higher Smallwood Farm and walked up the drive and path. I climbed over two barbed wire fences by a tree to access the field. Head for the pylon and there she lies. Note, if parking as I did, park well into the edge as for some reason there were a number of bin lorries going up and down the track today. The main track is driveable to cut down the walking but you may meet a lorry!

Used field access at SJ 82628 59467 and made my way up thru' fields which were bounded by electric fencing. In field directly east of trig I came upon two young men erecting the fencing. I asked permission to look for the trig (which they had no knowledge of) and it was given with no challenge as to why I was wandering about in the field. The trig is still very close to its original position, lying by the telegraph pole.

She's still there, but as suggested since early 2011, she's been knocked over and dragged about 25 yards. She used to sit on the fence or hedgeline shown on the 1:25000 map, but that's been removed, and the trig shifted, presumably at the same time.

There it is - under one of the telegraph poles.

The cretin of a farmer has obviously uprooted this trig as it was in his way but since it has been "in the way" for the best part of 80 years I wonder why now is the time for its demise. At least the FB is still visible. The trig has been dragged next to a telegraph pole where the farmer cannot farm. Is it normal to be upset/annoyed about a lump of concrete laying on its side? What would the OS have to say about this?

Now shifting north toward the hotel. Quite a long walk for this one on a footpath that shares a farm drive for most of the walk crossed into the trig field via a gap in the hedge by an oak tree beyond a redundant stile. Short climb on a pasture field to the trig.
