3 of 5 On way back to Sheffield after meet up with old school mates. Nearly missed this one. Approached from S, parked near canal and walked over it, over the railway line then over M6 motorway (geography dictating transport routes) up towards comms tower. Walked on FP to where I thought trig should be and found two large concrete blocks, last disappointing remains I thought. On way back spotted toppled trig half covered with bramble next to E side of S comms tower amongst parked farm machinery. Lucky me, so gave it a couple more points. On to Cloudsley Bush.

The cycle down ROW to get to this was great fun. Lovely sun and interesting route. Only the sound from motorway spoiled it. Trig is just dumped by comms tower on its side. A very sad looking trig. It would be nice if someone could "rescue" it. Access from the road would be easy.

In view of the last log, nearly didn't bother with this one, but the sunny evening spurred me on. Glad I did as the pillar definately still exists, on its side in front of the control cabin for the telco mast nearest the M6, FB still visible. Aside from its unfortunate relocation, it's in vgc, even its metal cap still in place, raised letters. Walked in from the S, a history of transport provided en route with the canal, the railway and the M6. Before the latter, this would have been a pretty, peaceful part of rolling Middle England.

The fourth of a seven trigpoint outing with CURRYSCRIM. Parked just before the canal bridge as logged by Pharisee then up Centenary Way. Wonder how long it will survive.

Spent 20 mins looking in the wrong place - should have read the logs first. As stated in others, it is dumped on some old telegraph poles by the mobile phone masts You cannot see the FB as it is underneath, It is a pity they did not place it in the corner of the field.

Walking along the Oxford canal from Ansty, looked for the pillar but could'nt see it. Did'nt look closely around the masts, so it could still be there. Photo shows where it should have been, in or by the hedge on the left.

The grid ref is for it's new location dumped at the bottom of one of the masts. Wooden box construction in the base, not sure what that's all about. Walked in across the canal, railway, and M6.

Visited this one with Deego. We parked just before the bridge over the canal and railway a mile or so west of the trig point. A pleasant if somewhat wet and muddy walk followed which took us past the site of the abandoned village of Upper Smite. Only a few bumps in the ground now to mark its passing. We actually approached this one on the wrong side of the hedge but found our way through easily enough. Apart from the crack mentioned in previous logs, the trig point is in good condition and has all its metalwork in place. The views are flat and uninspiring being, at the time of our visit, cultivated mud.

We parked over to the West near the Oxford Canal and the Railway and walked past the old vilage of Upper Smite, Not much remains apart from a few mounds. We ended up on the wrong side of the hedge, but soon found a way to it. Not much a view apart from the M6.

About 20 yards into a recently-ploughed mudbath just off the Centenary Way. I approached it from Witheybrook village and it wasn't too bad a walk even in the gloomy conditions. It's all intact with the central plug which has very raised letters. Some white paint on the SW face. North sighthole open, the rest closed. Great views of the M6 and extremely noisy. Not a great place! The pillar, as Father Ted says, has cracks appearing all around it. The flush bracket has been painted black, which is quite fitting with the location!

I approached this from the south and jusdging by other comments had a much more pleasant walk in. The path goes over canal, railway and motorway before dog legging to the left past the masts to the trig. Bit of a craqck aparing around the middle.

A mile of mud in and a mile of mud out. A scenic stroll alongside the M6 which runs by the pillar. In a muddy newly planted field on a bridleway. There is no barn, just mobile masts. The dumping of tons of turkey shite on the footpath sums this one up. No wonder the nearby village is abandoned.

This is the nearest TP to my Dad's old house in Stretton-Under-Fosse, and I ran out there one afternoon during a visit to the old boy. there was a barn there then ("with potential" my log naively records), but I expect the proximity of the motorway put paid to any prospective buyers!
