Noticed this trig as we drove past on the way out so stopped off on the way back to grab the details and a photo. Easy to park right next to the trig and get the details from the FB but to enjoy the views takes a short walk around.

Arriving at the roadside trig we had the spectacular sight of a Red Kite hovering 20 feet or so over the road. By the time camera out he had moved quite a way from us. Trig point in good condition with limited views.

Just 161.11m from an OS bolt - why so close, one wonders. Pillar is located at convenient roadside pull-in, not surprising cap is missing, composite plug has all but gone and centre hole used as a wate-bin! Cleared crisp packets, tissues etc from it - nice!. Rear sight hole open. Good views N & NE only.

This is as easy as Carn Gloose in Cornwall. Potentially you don't have to get out of the car. However purism kicked in and a proper bagging took place. Decent views too in sunny weather. On way down to a short stay at RAF Brize Norton. Run through Burford is a shock - so many people!

Difficult to avoid the car in the piccy

Right by bend in minor road between Great Barrington and Great Rissington. Pillar in good condition; FB faces N; cap seems to be broken through with snails now living in the cavity! Horrible rainy day so no views to speak of. Position logged from average of two readings from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

Spotted this one as I drove home from a weekend in the West Country. Just had to stop and ‘bag it’. It was a bit grubby but in reasonable condition. The centre plug has been removed and the filler used the block the hole has been broken through. The views not spectacular, just rolling farmland but they're pleasant enough.

I'm amazed that no-one's logged this before as it's right by the side of the lane and there is a small layby to park in. It's all intact but with a concrete plug replacement. E sighthole open, the others closed. A little white paint. No significant views, just local agricultural scenery.
