Fourth of the day, third county of the day. This was purely a ‘box tick’ exercise to add Kent to the list of counties I’ve Trigged in, just 10 minutes off the M25, and a roadside bag - albeit a rare urban one!

As my closest trig and one that's on the side of the road, I've walked past this one numerous times on my way to the shops. Even brought people here on occasion to explain what trigs are. Happy to get it logged - simply walked up from home with the dog. Not in too bad a condition but some deterioration on the top.

Saff with the trig

Parked at end of a Oaklands Rd, very close to the pillar. 'BSM' FB; no top cap/plug; LHS sight hole open. Damage to one top corner exposing the end of one of the spider arms. Urban area, no views.

Lots of people about. Probably thinking what's he doing. Not a interesting place next to busy road and housing estate

Unusual urban location, easily found. Cap missing and slight damage to one corner, otherwise in pretty good nick!

My first trigpoint in an urban location, and the first one I have visited during the course of my work -- which is nice ! Glad to see that the developers saw fit to preserve the pillar.

Located on pavement at the side of urban road, pillar is damaged, and appears to of been urbanised - With Graffiti, cigerette ends and sweet wrappers in the hole left after someone has "chaved" the plug! I suppose what you would expect for this type of location - still, at least it's still there!

As previously described this trigpoint sits by a footpath alongside a main road though a modern housing development. It is so well sited that it is hard to believe that it is in its original position. However, the measured NGR is very close to the base data. So, a pat on the back for whoever decided to leave it there.

On the edge of the pavement on Boucher Drive in Gravesend. Top corner chipped off and plug missing but otherwise in good shape for an urban trig.
