This trig point is in an area of parkland / open space. So is easily accessed from the footpath.

Pillar is within the ‘Cock Road Ridge Open Space’, beside a large bush! Good condition, plug missing; FB faces ESE; all sightholes open. Views are no great shakes although the area is a haven for wildlife. Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m. [ EDIT 2012: Just a short walk from home of dear friend and colleague Bob Broadbear who passed away on 31 January 2012. ]

I accessed the open space from Belsher Drive, a cul-de-sac of modern housing off Cock Road. The brambles have been kept at bay and the pillar is in good condition, albeit with plug missing.

The pillar is sited next to a bramble bush in Cock Road Ridge Open Space which lies between the houses of Cock Road and the eastern Bristol ring road. Its plug is missing and it has FB BsM 3385. The site looks south over housing and trading estates to Longwell with the western reaches of Dundry Hill and the transmitter at Pen Hill visible in the distance. To the east Kelston Round Hill and other hills either side of the Avon Valley could be seen. Traffic noise was ever present.

We parked half way up the orange road that runs parallel to the A4174 and followed the footpath signs. Once over the stile, we tracked left along the back of the houses until we found the trig nestling in some nettles, as you'd expect at this time of the year. Not very good views and the noise of the traffic was intrusive. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering. I was intrigued by the name on the map - Cockroad Bottom!

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! It was Xmas Eve and I was staying at my mother-in-law's. My map notes say, "Couldn't find it. Rain and no specs impaired map reading, so drove around later and walked straight to it! Really quite nice views S & E, and nearby bench would be nice in Summer.""
