Gone. Probably lost to roadworks or landscaping. The exposed concrete not conclusive .

Not Sure!! following on from Rick Trig's advice, I donned the high viz, and got out the Army folding spade and had a dig, it is a lump of trig like concrete, however, I was unable to find real proof in the form of sighting holes FB recess etc, have logged as remains, to get some more opinions. what do we think?

Marking this as remains found......convinced this is the base, unless someone advises different.

Gone to the Great Trig Maker in the sky. Predominently industrial estate to the north & west and arable land south & east, hardly inspiring. Gets 1 for the view east.

Northumberland. No trig and no score. The onward march of development has transformed this place.

As I have passed this location many times and was aware that it was missing. The location is now in the middle of the A191 on the exit of a roundabout.
