When down BW by The Rough. The Last trig was in a front garden (Robs) and this Trig is in back garden. Rang bell of the Oaks and a nice lady gave me permission to look at her trig. It has a couple of paving slabs on the top. I didnt ask why. No views as it is in a back garden.

Have called in here quite a few times over the years, and as today there was no answer. Glanced down the left-hand side of the house to see the pillar in full view. Two sight-holes open, but didn't inspect the cap as that 'strange square thing' still sits on top. Probably sixth time lucky.

On back garden of house called The Oaks. knocked on the door. no one in but wandering too the left hand side gate, there it was on full view on the lawn. I took the liberty of just popping down there to photograph it!! Strange square thing on top.

Located in rear garden of private house, 'The Oaks' on Woodside. Cypress hedge now gone; pillar in the open and in good condition. Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole only open, although front is becoming unsealed. No views. Chilworth also a class 0 tump.

Details posted below by Sagina nivalis are spot on and I cannot imagine finding this one otherwise. Thankyou Sagina. Thanks are also due to the kind gentleman at the house (owners father) who allowed me to look even though having no knowledge of the pillar. Apparently house changed hands last year. Yes, the Cypress trees are dense and I could only see into them by crawling underneath. Pillar is totally invisible from lawn. Although able to see pillar from bottom and read FB unable to check plug. I should emphasise this is a private house and permission will be needed to view.

vgc. W side of back garden of The Oaks (aka Kazben), Woodside. Middle of dense Cypress hedge, 10m N of NW corner of house, which was being redecorated. 2 concrete slabs on top of trig, hence top plug not accessible. 4th time lucky.

Visited with Vix while caching in the area. I agree with the others, no way to reach this one!

This one popped up accidentally whilst tom tom was leading us a merry dance finding closest parking for Pine Needles but sadly we couldnt get to it, although we did find some parking that made the walk to Pine Needles shorter. :)

Went round in circles trying to find this trigpoint and finally came to the conclusion that it is in someone's back garden if it is still in existence

Totally unreachable! I've marked this as good so that it shows an icon on my local search list! It's in a hedge in the back garden of "Kazben". I spoke to a neighbour two houses down who is a surveyor and has seen the pillar recently. There was no one in at "Kazben" while I was in the location and it would appear to be the sort of place where regular trigpoint hunter visits wouldn't be tollerated! There's no possibility of viewing from around the property as it is bordered by other properties.

It is still on all OS mapping I could find but at 50m on the GPS there is a row of houses in the way and the likely candidate had a high gate and noone home. Would have much of a view anyway these days

Got to within 30m of where the GPS was pointing, but if it's still there, it's in someone's back garden. I couldn't see it through the fence, although the light was fading and the garden in question is heavily landscaped. Very soggy and hard going to get through the wood behind the houses, especially in the dark. By the time I escaped I was fed up, and cursing the guy who introduced rhododendons to this country !
