sad to see damage- but it is just visible above the trimmed hedge, near the mast.

On hedge bank in hedge, S side of track,NW of comms mast. Sadly, it has come off worse in an argument with a hedge trimmer.

Had actually given up hope of finding it but by some wild fluke managed to see a little bit of concrete poking out of the hedge on my way back to the bike.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there with a very badly damage top.

Quite hard to find as hedge growth as taken over since last trig baggers' photos were posted. Top of trig very eroded.

Top damaged; no cap or plug. The Unofficial flush bracket Register group bagged our last trig pillar here today. Between the 25 of us we've bagged every OSGB pillar - 6255 between us, including about 100 which are no longer there. The Devon weather produced a celebratory rainbow!

Located on a vehicle track off a minor road to the south of Tiverton. This was our first bag en-route to Bideford to get the ferry to Lundy. Pillar is well and truly buried in the hedgerow with a very damaged top exposing most of the spider.

Badly damaged on the top - probably by flails.

How long will it be before those nearby masts become redundant technology?

I liked this trig - for no other reason than it was an easy walk up from the road on a nice sunny day. it peeps above the hedge which has engulfed it in the shadow of a Crown Castle mast site. One corner has been lopped off by a hedge-trimmer which must have caused some expensive damage to the trimmer! Nearest pub is the Butterleigh Inn which looks interesting but I didn't go in.

It's in that bit that sticks up over the hedge!

I missed this one as I walked up the lane because it looks like an ivy-covered tree stump, but more obvious from inside the field. GR to 10m only. I didn't climb up to note the damage reported by mickandshane.

It's up the track just before the mast on the right. Lumps of concrete missing from the top, as is also the plug.
