On way down to Kenilworth/Coventry to meet up with some old school mates. Thanks to previous triggers for the details of this trig's location on a smart new estate. Permission was readily given by the understably bemused owner and the trig was there in the back garden in good condition; hard to imagine no surrounding houses.

Friendly owner showed us to the far rear of the garden where the pillar lurks behind a bush - amazing this survived the development of housing. Family watched us traipse across the lawn with some amusement.

An impromptu visit while taking my son to the Uni. The OS map gave the impression that the track from Gibbet Hill Road led to the trig, but I was not dressed for squeezing past the large gate. Glad I didn't now that I can see it wouldn't have got me to the trig anyway.

Now on my way back from Stow-on-the-Wold and kindly given permission to visit by househoulder. pillar 149 for 2013, and total now 2039.

Very friendly owner who readily granted access on a Saturday afternoon . Pillar now well cared for in beautifully looked after back garden. Owner - "I haven't touched it" - told her it was ok to treat it as her own.

In light of arranc's successful bag, decided to not bother the household at Sunday lunchtime to root around in their garden for this one. GPS taken from pavement outside the house noted in earlier logs.

asked lady of the house to go into her garden to inspect. she gave her ok to crawling through the shrubs in the border to touch the column and read the FB.

I deduced that it is now in a rear garden of Cryfield close

Got as far as the fencing at the bottom of number 10 Cryfield Heights. Was tempted to jump over (do not like logging without actually touching the trig) but the jagged spikes running along the top of the fence looked too dangerous.

Warwickshire. Went round the back of the houses and tried to look over the fence but row of spikes on the fence and the height of the fence prevent this.

I suspected it was underneath No.10 Cryfield Heights... but glad to read that it's still with us, if uncared for by current householders... I scared the Neighbourhood Watch, twitchy curtain Brigade !

Beyond the fence !

Had a quick peek over the fence but this one is definately on private property.

even getting to the back of the garden involved 5ft high fences. Might try at the house if I end up at the uni for a conference later in the year but hardly the most thrilling of sites

Had GPS fix and got to rear of houses,seemed like my activity was arousing suspicion on this posh estate so didnt stay too long,my GPS was showing just the other side of fence and sadly no one at home at No 10 so no access posible today.

Rear of No 10 ,close as i could get.©Glaslyn

Having read the previous visitors report I decided to pay another visit to this trig. The owner of this huge house is not enamoured by the trig and therefore unlike other garden trigs it has not been made into a garden ornament. It is buried deep in the garden shrubery and therefore the only way to see it is with the owner’s permission.

It doesn't seem to be in the rough ground behind these new houses. The GPS was indicating the location was the back garden of one of these houses. I agree that it was probably removed when the houses were built.

I once thought this to be an inaccessable site, but a very upmarket housing development has splurged out into the fields and you can drive very close to the grid ref. No visble pillar, but it may yet survive in a garden. Odds are that it has gone, but it would be a lovely garden feature. It is still marked on current maps.

Gibbet Hill. The site. Is it behind one of those high fences?©fasgadh
