SW side of road with good parking at field entrance 20m or so SE. Becoming embedded into the hedgerow but still accessible. Don't know what the rivet 'Fictitious Station' is all about, it's 'new name' suggests it has a connection to setting up the GPS network; but suspect it doesn't exist. Original matal top cap is retained, indented lettering. Left, right and rear sight holes open, front now belowground level.

Stopped briefly here to record my first Warwickshire trigpoint on a long drive from Southampton to Blairgowrie - not the most auspicious of sites for s4802, difficult parking with the speeding, thrashing traffic nearby. Think I'll move quickly onto Tachbrook Hill Farm for a short walk to find that trig & to ease my aching back....

I stopped here to revisit my home trig (in car headlights) after an overnight drive from the far north of Scotland. The last pillar I visited before dark had been Tignacarn near Inverness, 503 miles away by road. When I checked the photograph times, these visits were precisely 12 hours apart!

FB on N side with OS anti-vandal notice. S, W & E sighting holes all open with N sighting burried. Allen key plate still on. Walked from Warwick FBM in 20 mins to get here, which I think is some thumping pace. Recovered from the disaster in Warwick car park. How did this trig justify retention by the OS? Must be because it is by the roadside. As I find the location uninteresting and the potential rays seem to be obstucted. I can't make out my next target from here (Windmill Hill).
