One of those local trig points that I've been near to dozens of times without ever realising it was there. Presumably older than the trees that surround it. Good condition, but looks a bit sorry for itself with nettle growth around base and timber stacks crowding round it.

Do not on any condition know matter how keen you are visit in shorts (in Summer)! Photos on the site lead me to the right gate - gave up, parked at Parliament Oak (limited) and walked up whilst a terrific thunderstorm gathered to the east...it must be here, so round the back of the track (brambles) and it's spotted - only the slightly higher bracken and nettles give a clue where it is from the track. First Nottinghamshire trig.

Slightly concave top. Busy road avoidable using paths through woodland. No view and not quite at the highest point. Pleasant weather for a change. The Parliament Oak seems somewhat worse for wear.

Trig in brambly vegetation on edge of track into forestry plantation strip close by main road. Sign where track meets road (and where you can pull a car in) says Private but there is a well walked path down along the forest strip from the unheralded Parliament Oak.

A slight lean. Walked from Edwinstowe through Market Warsop and down the Coach Road. There is a good path on the east side of the wood down to the pillar that saves walking on the busy A6075 which is not shown on the map.

Parked in "layby" right by the path into the wood, which has a "private, no access" sign. Although the pillar is close to the path, it is completely hidden and took me a long while to find it. Probably easier to find later in the year. Limited views.

The pillar is just on the edge of the wood bordering the NE side of the track a short distance in from the road. As first encountered, it was deep in bracken but quite easy to get close. The FB faces away from the track and the plug has been replaced by a cap. The top of the pillar looks unusually concave.

Easy trig to find; parked in entrance track to wood and trig is on left hand side of track. Some litter round about, as well as a dead goose...seasonal fare? No real views as surrounded by woodland.

Easy bag but was again impressed by lack of fly tipping. Considering the semi urban location of many Nottinghamshire trigs they don't seem as bad as many similar Scottish ones for this particular curse of modern society. (See http://www.trigpointinguk.com/trigs/trig-details.php?t=6454 for a similar trig in Fife that has a real problem.)

So, Lincoln's first away match of the year so couldn't resist a quick nip to Mansfield. Dire game and apparantly about to lose the manager. At least there were some trigs to ease the gloom! This one is on a forest track, just off the A 6075. Plastic plug replacement; no paint. E sighthole open, others closed. No views at all due to the conifer trees - but a big notice saying 'Shooting in Progress' so beat a hasty retreat.. They could have done with some shooting at the match!
