Easy to find this time of year but not much room to take photo's. Interesting FB number makes the scramble up the bank worth it.

1m within the hedge, just enough space to squeeze in alongside. Very good condition, no cap or plug, half covered in moss.

As others have said, the FB number is the most interesting thing about this trig. Still fairly easy to spot the trig in the hedge, thanks to the efforts of previous visitors.

Very average roadside TP. Only the number makes it interesting. The views are not much to speak of and its almost completely surrounded buy bushes and trees. I had to do a bit of pruning to get to it.

A 100 mile round trip cycle (I must be mad) to get this one and the other two nearby Basingstoke trigs. Previous hedge trimming and a lack of leaves on the trees made finding the pillar easy.

As per previous logs: even though this trig was only a couple of feet from the roadside, this was a difficult find because it was COMPLETELY obscured by overgrowth! We drove in the SW direction along the B3046 and parked just past the house "Northgate" at the layby on the left side of the road (as you're travelling SW). Then we walked back down the hill towards the trig, past the house "Northgate", past the private driveway that had 2 outbuildings and a wooden gate. The left gate post had a sign that said "private property keep out" and the right gate post had a sign that said "private drive". There was also an old M-reg white Peugeot van parked there, it looked like a refrigerated van. The trig was buried deep in the hedge just to the left of this driveway. We had to part the overgrowth and search hard for the trig. Eventually we found it, then put our gardening tools to work clearing the overgrowth around it. Broke one handle of my gardening shears! The trig was up an embankment, then a couple of feet into the hedge that was completely overgrown and extremely difficult to get to. Eventually managed to make an opening just barely big enough for me to squeeze my arm into to take the necessary photos. Trig was in good condition, missing centre cap. FB was facing NE, i.e. on the left side of the trig as you look at it from the roadside, a lot of moss was around the FB. Tips for future visitors: there is better parking further up the road (i.e. in the SW direction, away from the trig) on the right side of the road at a metal gate with a sign "No Public Access". Or alternatively it will be much better to park on the road "Broadmere". Gardening tools are a must if you are to find this trig and get to it! The traffic thunders along this road really fast, so beware! I suggest you bring someone to act as a look-out for traffic.

Before chopping: completely obscured, impossible to spot
After chopping: now you see it!

SE side of road, NE side of entrance to house 'Northgate'. Located on roadside embankment within hedgerow, which had recently been cut so easy to spot, but not so easy to get close to - needed to squeeze into the hedge, fun! Pillar in generally good condition; cap missing, no plug; 3 sight holes sealed, 4th blocked by tree root so unable to determine status. Extensive views over Basingstoke to N.

Pillar no s5555 is an awkward one to locate.It is only inches from the roadside,but well hidden within a copse,and up an embankment.There is a narrow space between saplings,so I hauled myself up and over.It's an extremely confined space,and there is a house and garden just yards away to the right.No views of course - it rather reminded me of Applepie Hill in Berkshire:when constructed,these two trigs must have originally overlooked decent views.

Last day of Easter cycle tour and heading for the train home from Reading. Had intended to visit Winchester today, but a fine sunny day, so a more zig-zag route to enjoy the countryside and do some trigging. Total successful visits for the trip are 42 - having now consulted the Website I missed spotting two and one is definitely missing.

Continuation of our walk from the neighbouring trig at Hatchwarren Lane. Something of a scramble up the bank and rather a squeeze through the hedge, but found a trig in vgc minus cap or plug. Limited views over Basingstoke on a rather grey day. Continued onwards past Farleigh Wallop church - pretty but unfortunately locked.

Reasonably straightforward in the hedge at this time of year. Ignoring the hedge, there is a reasonable view over Basingstoke.

Extremely difficult to access due to vegetation. It's also impossible to park close by. However, we managed to get some pics and fight the prickles to read the FB.

This trig point is buried deep inside a clump of bushes at the edge of the B4036. The views are somewhat restricted !! The pillar is in good condition but the centre plug is missing leaving a hole that has not been filled. This one could be easily missed as it is not visible to the casual observer.

It's in there... yes, really.

White pillar on field side of hedge beside B3046. Walked from pillar along road past duckpond to Farleigh Wallop church which was locked and back through field of sheep. The church has a rivet benchmark.
