Easy roadside trig, spotted as I was driving by. Convenient layby just to the North. Corner pillar damaged, plug missing. There are views, but they're not inspiring. There's a geocache here as well.

Must have driven past this one a fair few times without realising its existence! Dull roadside location, easy parking in the layby just to the north. Pillar has a portion chipped off the N corner, otherwise in good condition, missing plug. Persistent rain all day today - just enough time to hop out of the car and photograph the trig before heading for a well-earned beer! Position logged from GPS device accurate to 5m.

There's a chunk missing from one side of this one, as can be seen in CrazyL200's photo. Also, the spider on this one seems a bit skewed - usually one arm is perpendicular to the side it points to, but not here. The hooks are also in quite deep holes.

How surprising that no-one's logged this before, as it's right on the grass verge of the A429, next to a layby! Anyway, there is no plug but otherwise it's in pretty good nick, with some residual white paint. All sight holes are blocked. There are some open agricultural views W and E but the road is very busy.
