Easy access from ROW. Met a rather grumpy woman with two dogs, who said to one of the dogs, as i went by "See him off". Rather uninteresting place to put a trig. No views.

Centre missing. Easy walk, first on the old railway line from the hospital, FP on the left, keep going through the forest, pillar on the left of the path, has it's own stile. Lots of wild boar digging in the forest.

Roadside parking on mud verge due S on B4226. Picked up a RoW after 450m, which carried on to the trig. Pillar found approx 9m SW of path in conifer woodland. Minor chipping to top edges; cap missing, no plug; LHD side and rear sight holes open. Last vestige of a white paint job visible. Moss building up at lower levels. No views.

Quick stop off en route home having spent the afternoon walking round the excellent (but very soggy) Sculpture Trail next door. Completely enclosed by trees, S and W s/holes open, as is centre, but structurally sound.

The pillar stands on a wooded hill in the Forest of Dean to the east of Monmouth. It lacks a cap or plug and has FB S6973. I approached mostly on forestry tracks from the car park for Speech House Woodlands. All that can be seen from the trig are the nearby paths and trees. There are some lofty Douglas Firs near the car park; the woods were full of bird song; a couple of deer crossed my path in Kensleyridge Inclosure and Woorgreens Lake is quite pretty.

Parked in the small off road space on the North side of the B4226 just East of the cemetery entrance. Walked straight up the tracks to join the path and then to the trig. Lots of forestry and as Stevie Boy says, hard to believe you could see any other trigs from here! Walked back via the old railway line under the B road. Me, Mum, Hadley 200m

Surrounded by forestry Camera attached to a tree with the Gorillapod - but sadly no view to show for it!

Initially tried to find from the S/W coming off the Glos Way but gave up,though did spot a deer. Then parked at Dilke Hosp,crossed road to FP under the bridge,then first left (no signpost). Pillar in VGC but hard to believe that other trigs must have once been visible from here.

Pleasant woodland cicular made less enjoyable by the mizzle. Parked in the road opposite the hospital that is popular with dog walkers. Nice to actually touch a trig after last two

Had a day off from work and took a day off from Geocaching to spend the day Trigpointing. Had difficulty parking near hospital as a meeting was being held to protest against the closure of Lydney and Dilke Hospitals. Lovely walk through the woods. Easy access over stile but bracken grown up around the trig.

We parked just to the west of the hospital and headed up to the trig. Just before you get to it there is a stile on the left and the trig is about 30 metres north west in the bracken. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

I parked in the hospital grounds. I heard some weird animal noises in the forest and afterwards my mum told me that there is a fast expanding wild boar population in the forest which probably explained it. The FB number is certainly 6973.
