Central plug missing, otherwise OK and fairly recently repainted. Views N/S/E good but view W to Malvern obscured by trees and probably not visible in summer. By pure chance, as I logged this pillar, I met a man who had spent 20 years working for the O.S. erecting trig points!! There is now virtually nothing I don't know about how they are put together - and I also learned some fascinating information about flush bracket numbers! Incidentally, the information on the trig -point listing, which is now on the website used to be sold by the O.S.!!
