Seem to be following Mick and Kim round! So foggy this couldn't be seen from the road. In copse, very littered surroundings (looks like a local meeting place). Concrete cap, E and W s/holes open, otherwise vgc.

Walked over from Homestead farm. Iíve been to several trigpoints that are adjacent to ROC posts but Iíve never seen one open. I climbed down the ladder and had a look inside Ė still a couple of old bed frames down here and the water drainage pump.

Nottinghamshire. Visited this at dusk and although there are no views from the trig itself, the views over the lights of Nottingham in one direction and the setting sun in another made this a memorable trigpoint. Asphalt plug.

Was pleased to find this 7th and final trig of the day in the dark, especially as it is hidden in a thicket. Glorious sunset. Tarmac plug.

Access through gap in hedge but needed GPS to find the right gap. Very good view of Trent Valley from just outside the copse, but the pillar is hid away in the thicket.

An easy approach from the lane via a convenient gap in the hedge. The pillar is in a small copse so no views at this time of year in any direction. The plug is an ashphalt replacement. No paint. E/W sightholes open, N/S closed.

Exactly as Father Ted describes. The 20 foot shaft is, I beleive, the entrance to a Nuclear Observation Post built during the cold war. There is a similar one on MELLOR in Lancashire at grid ref SD 657 312. The is a plaque on that one which explains the history of the bunkers etc and a photograph of this is on the trigpointinguk database posted by stonestreaker.

Trig is in a copse which I reached by following the hedge line north from the road west of Clipston. Plug replaced with concrete and some signs of charring from small fires having been lit in the past. Also in the copse is what I first took to be a water tank but on closer inspection was the head of a 20 foot shaft down to I wonder what?
