I have seen this a few times from the A14, Parking on the slip road at TL1594472177, then along ROW to top of hill then E, easy today as in stubble, would imagine it not so straightforward in wetter conditions. Pillar good condition and located in stubble next to huge wind turbines. farmland views.

The Trig was visible from the road and so wanting to grab a few local caches I had a wander up here to bag it. The field had recently been got ready for planting and so it was a nice easy walk across to the Trig. The paths leading up to the wind turbines certainly help to get close. A lovely sunny evening.

In view from A14 flyover, however, construction work underway for wind farm affecting footpath. Two long fields via wheel tracks and a headland of barley to negotiate.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked in the access road just off the A14 slip road to the south. We started by using the footpath but then cut across to the track that goes up to the radio mast before cutting across the field to the pillar. It is on a raised mound in the middle of a cultivated field. In good condition and still retains an original metal indented lettered plug. A nice viewpoint.

Picked up while passing on nearby cache series. Very muddy tramp over to the trig - saw the strange marker nearby.

Detoured from the nearby geocaching trail for this one. Walked around the edge of the crop field as best we could to the trigpoint, also found the German survey point next to it.

Passing nearby on a new geocaching trail. Followed track up past mast (which I suspect is there for windspeed tests, to see if a wind turbine could go here), then cut across. Trig is in middle of cropfield, but no problem getting to it at present. Good views all around. Edit: forgot to add - I found what looks like a survey point, or benchmark, right by the trig, labelled "Vermessungs punkt". A quick search online when I returned home reveals this is German for Survey Point. Weird, huh?

I came up the hill from Ellington. Trig was in the middle of a field of oil seed rape - tractor tracks went pretty close to it so I had to do a minimal amount of wading. Nice spring evening views over the rolling "hills" of Cambridgeshire. Good condition with plug intact.
