Parked at entrance to restricted byway and walked along track to mast. To find gate mentioned in previous logs. Trig point was hiding just over wall near gate. had to do a bit of gardening to reach it to take photo's. No views.

All intact. Spider full of resin. Has Vegibagger recently visited? Mossy and a bramble fest. Again.

Sunny intervals allowed for a jungle trip to this overgrown trig. It will be impossible to touch in a few months time. It needs a half days gardening by Jon Glew.

This one's wrongly named - it was definitely a Badern for me! Planned as the last visit of a day's Cornish trigging, traffic jams on the A30 into Redruth made it the first of the day, but despite following others' advice, I couldn't see it. I was there, clambered over banks and peered through undergrowth, but no joy. Nothing much to be seen from here either.

Tried earlier last year and couldn't even sight the pillar. Arrived down from Bristol today for a few days trigging and arrived with garden shears in hand. After 15 minutes of cutting I revealed the thing of beauty. Ready for next bagger to have an easy find.

This will require some serious gardening to uncover. Somewhere in a very dense hedge. Track leading to field entrance is unpassable on foot following a few days heavy rain. Use wadders or a 4x4

I went over the bank to the right of the gate without going through the gate. You have to look hard to see the trig. A local enquired over the wall what I was up to, and was pleased to learn there was an OS pillar hiding there.

Quick walk along puddle-strewn byway from minor road. Initially it wasn’t clear where the pillar would be but I checked position with GPS and it appeared to be in an area of dense growth behind a wall to the north of the track. Walking into the field through the open gateway and peering over the wall I could see the pillar clearly; getting to it involved clambering up the wall avoiding the gorse and bramble and then dropping carefully over the other side! Pillar in reasonable condition; spider and plug covered in resin; FB faces S; sightholes not observed. Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

The pillar is engulfed by ivy and brambles inside an enclosed space between walled hedgerows. The pillar was once painted white; it has FB S7691; it appears to have a metal cap but the top of the pillar is covered in a layer of resin. I parked on the minor road to the west and reached the pillar by means of the byway and then climbing over the gate and hedge to get to the brambly space where the pillar stands. Nothing can be seen from the pillar and standing on the nearby hedge only brings the adjacent fields, trees and hedges into view.

vgc, metal cap, apparently deep letters but top of trig covered by a layer of translucent resin. Quickly found - thanks to Nr's 2nd log it is now fairly unmissable. N side of track c. 2m due E of gatepost, in small walled enclosure. Took a little while to prune my way in, trimmed sufficient ivy away to photograph FB and top, but as before, "look for the obvious ivy bush".

Paid a 2nd visit to make sure its still there. Probably one of the most difficult to find. Accessing it involves going through the gate on the opposite side of the lane to the gate leading to the mobile phone mast. Shimming over the hedge on the right just past the gatepost and - well - just forcing your way through. Its unusal in that it appears encompassed by a Cornish hedge all around and not actually on the hedge, but it is there (see my earlier pic.) Top has been covered by resin which is in pretty good condition due to being the base of an ivy tree! Needless to say no view can be seen from the pillar itself. I found it initally by a process of elimination and locking my GPS onto the cordinates. Keith Sephens has photographed the correct bush!

Busy month for this trig it seems. Searched for 20 mins, not found, expected on hedgebank, thick gorse etc.

Still we couldn't find it. This is my second try at bagging this trig but still no luck. No pig sited this time but it might have been hiding!!!

Pete couldn't find it, Very overgrown, probably easier in winter. Known to be there from other triggers. High point was the explosive exit of a pig from water hole, causing Pete to have an unscheduled bowel movement. Got a pic, though

Pig Emerged from a deep water hole on the track, like a pheonix from the deep. Pete had a bowel movement, side-stepped its charge like a matador, then took a picture!

Wanted to be the 1st to log a pillar. Had to scramble through the undergrowth (thank goodness I had my Hunter wellies on) but found this well preserved example. Much fly tipping nearby and a rather amorous couple having an after-lunch "siesta". Also took photo of nearby electicity pole showing grid reference

If it's there it's well hidden. No obvious summit point, but lots of thick hedges that may have engulfed it
