Roadside pillar, spotted by chance driving past, quick pull over onto wide grass verge. Pillar has some significant damage to the top, leaving one spider arm end exposed; it also has a definite tilt rendering it 'damaged'. Original top cap retained, raised lettering; rear sight hole open.

Easy access from small pull in on lane to SW. Bright white (including cap and FB), and upright at present, if a little wonky. Wouldn't risk a reading from it! Good views to east but otherwise unremarkable. Metal cap, raised letters, NE s/hole open, damage to top SE corner.

Toppled 10th Jun 2016  18:15  by robinhood

FB Number: Not logged  Condition: Toppled  Score: 3/10

First logged this trig over seven years ago, now updating its situation after deleting the original. On my way to Gedling to visit an old school mate and went by the trig on purpose to find it toppled but intact, it looks as though it's been hit by a car or lorry quite recently. It is still brightly painted white so quite visible but on its side showing its concrete base: if it was a vehicle it must have been quite a whack. Busy road, traffic is fast so take care. There may be a safe place to pull in and park near the trig 50m along the minor road, Calverton Road, SW from the crossroads into Arnold at some small works entrances.

Should have been the third trigpoint on a walk from Woodbouough but somehow missed Arnold Lodge. Not a route to be recommended some interesting paths but too many roads with high speed traffic . Great view to the north from the bridal path by Fox Wood leading to Bonner Hill. You could spot this trigpoint without leaving home on Google Streetview.

One of the easiest to find, being right on the traffic lights. Looks like it has had a recent coat of white paint. The TP is in good condition although it is very low in the ground now. FB only just visible where someone has dug it out a little.

Have driven right past this many times, even since I have been logging trigpoints. Decided that it was high time that I stopped and examined it! Good condition, complete with all metalwork, though level of ground has presumably been raised around it. Next to a busy road junction, though the view to the north west is good.
