WELL Hedged! Nettles and holly kept me from digging the near metre back into this hedge.. managed to snap the FB but no such luck with the top/cap.. and you can forget checking the sights without bringing a hedge trimmer/chainsaw!

Getting quite late. I probably would not have found this without the GPS. Located 10M south of Electricity pole hiding in a holly hedge

S4455 poorly focused with flash, but FB just visible in the green

First trig of 2012. Cycled the 17 miles on a bright, clear, cold morning and parked the bike in the hedge next to the pillar. It was found without difficulty but I had to clear some brambles, holly and ivy away to get a clear photo of the Flush Bracket. It would need some serious hedge surgery to get a view of the top of the pillar but structurally, it looks sound enough. The hedge on both sides of the road was too high to see over so the only views were up and down the lane.

Very hard to spot in holly hedge. FB on road side. About 20 feet from telegraph pole.

Almost completely lost in the holly. In the end I found it from the field side. Cap intact, didn't see the FB from that side.

Parked in lay by nearby. Trig is still covered in holly and easy to miss. Had to do a thorough search down the lane

Parked same place as Griefmiester. Totally missed first time as it's so well hidden. After a bit of agriculture with a pair of secateurs while my trusty sidekick kept lookout I managed to get a better look at the top. Cap in place & in very good condition which is more than can be said of my arms & head thanks to the holly. Nice pub down the road near the canal as well

Completely lost deep in the hedge - Managed to get a FB image (just) - I Parked to the south in the passing place and walked 75 m to pillar - located on the west side of the road - Good luck!

This one needs gauntlets. Thick ones. Situation still as previous logs detail. Best place to park is in the lane's dogleg about 100m south.

Just the way I like them. Completely buried in dense holly hedge and more or less invisible from the lane. Delving into the hedge revealed the FB but TP cloaked in ivy and top inaccessible. Parked on nearby estate and took field path to lane, but brief parking would have been possible in gateways.

Typical narrow lane with next to no parking, snuck onto the entry to the first house and jogged back, not an impressive start to the day

Nothing to be said about this one that hasn't already been said. One of those trigs that you wonder ever had a useful purpose!

The trig point is mostly obscured by a thick holly hedge, however peeling back the outer layer of the hedge reveals the lower part complete with plate. The top is engulfed by the holly so difficult to tell if it's damaged or not.

Lucky to find this as it sits very firmly in the middle of a vary thick ivy strewn holly bush. There was just enough room to see the FB plate. The bushes were thinned just in front of it so I suspect either it is kept that way or it's proximity keeps the bush from completely covering the front over. Looked in good condition as much as I could see of it. Logged at N51 45.568 W000.30.681 <Moved from TP1040 by admin>

The FB Plate Looking through the undergrowth you can luckily see the plate.©kennamatic
It's in there! The photo isn't great but goives you an idea of just how thick the holly bush is that it sits in. I can guarantee no-one will be using that for measurements in the near future!
The plate Managed to get closer to the plate by twisting my arm through the bush in several directions at once.
