Walked up from village on footpath directly up Croydon Hill. Someone has been very busy cutting down all the brambles along the footpath route.

From the SE on an overgrown RoW. Pillar sits on NE side of the footpath largely free from the hedgerow behind it. There is some chipping from one top corner, so perhaps marginal 'slightly damaged'. Original cap has been retained, deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole open. No views.

Parked on road to the west. Signs at the farm entrance say no parking, but there was a pull-in a few yards back down the road to the south. Easy short walk round two sides of the field along PROWs to the trig

Parked on road to W, easy footpath walk round cropfield. Pillar at front of hedgerow. Flush bracket becoming enmeshed in vegetation. Good views down to the S.

Should have walked from the field gate instead of the village - my way was steeper, muddier and further.

This one gets a 7 because of the views. Parked by the field gate to the west and its an easy walk round to the trig. Original plug intact but there is some slight crumbling of the top edges of the pillar. Years of lichen I suspect....

10th and final trigpoint visited today. Parked to the west, adjacent to a field entrance on the opposite side of the road. An easy flat walk on public RoW to the T/P that was just about visible from the road if you looked hard. The pillar is complete with all itís metalwork in place. It has a chip missing from the NW top corner but not enough to mark it as slightly damaged. Views are OK if you like hedgerows and cultivated fields.

Fairly easy trig to get to. It sits alongside a footpath just a short walk from the road. Setting and views around quite pleasant. Pillar in good condition.

Easy to spot on other side of field from road. Track and path from North-West make it an easy get.

Easiest to park to the west of the TP and follow the footpaths. TP in the middle of the northwest-southeast path and easy to access.

Yes, I guess for Cambridgeshire, these are good views, with snow showers falling. An easy bag.

This pillar is right beside a public footpath to the north of Croydon village. There are probably nice views over the plains to the south if the weather is clear - which it was not when I visited.

Easily found, and is visible from the road 700 ft away. Excellent views on a clear day. My picture of the FB didn't come out, and it was too wet to write the number down! I'll go back someday.
