A long slog up the hill through the Farm after walking from Great Shefford Church finding some caches on ATDAU series. Weather fine and sunny with far reaching views in all directions. Trig in good condition although somebody has scratched name into top plate

Permission to park granted at Maidencourt Farm to south. However, track very driveable right up to trig with room to turn round.

Rather a nice cycle across country. Easy to find, even if I had to get of the tracks a couple of times to let tractors go by. They were friendly and waved thanks. Saw Red Kite dive and carry off, what i took to be, a dead rabbit. Nice farmland views.

Whilst finding a place to park we carried on and on and before we knew it we were parked right next to the trig. A bit of a cheat but we have quite a few miles to walk today.

Parked on the grass verge at the top of the road that leads to Maidencourt Farm (i.e. S end of the road where it meets the minor road between Great Shefford & East Garston, we parked just behind the rock that said "Maidencourt"). Then walked up N to the trig. Lovely sunny day, very mild for the 2nd week of November. Trig in good condition, original metal cap with lightly indented lettering. As reported by previous loggers, the numbers and letters on the FB has either been damaged / bashed about or were never cast properly. It is possible to drive up to this trig if you have a suitable vehicle (e.g. 4 x 4), but that kind of defeats the purpose of these walks!

Wonderful day for a very quiet 13 mile walk from E Garston (saw no other walkers the entire way) including three trigs, this the first. Good all round views, and a farmer turning over a nearby muck heap which had caught fire! Metal cap, shallow letters, all s/holes open but otherwise vgc.

Parked roadside just S of Maidencourt Farm, walked N on PROW onto Lambourn Downs for the trig. Pillar in good condition but first '2' on FB has been damaged, or was badly cast; original cap in place with lightly indented lettering; all 4 sight holes open. 360deg farmland views.

Walk from Chaddleworth. This pillar is beautifully situated on the Lambourn Downs. Today felt like high summer, the sound of the larks was sweet upon the air, and there was absolutely no sound audible from the C21. A blissful few moments in time; lolled in the long grass and enjoyed a leisurely lunch in complete isolation, whilst watching the aerobatics of a soaring and majestic red kite appropriately enough heading for Kite Hill. Also noted the silent fluttering of colourful butterflies, and the slashes of poppy red brilliantly speckling the otherwise green landscape - I think I can feel a poem coming on....

Easily reached using footpaths/byways from East Garston or Great Shefford. Decent views. Plug intact. FB looks like it has been bashed with a hammer at some point. There are several of what appear to be reference numbers etched into the spider.
