Asked at office and was signed in Visitors book and taken round to trig point which is only accessible through the main yard / factory. Very friendly, visiting is not a problem.

In correct location as per OS map, behind trees and chain link fence. Asked at the adjacent business unit for access which was readily granted as the manager used to be a surveyor and "understood". Escorted access through site, with trowel in hand. But also visible through dense bush from roadside if required.

Road side although just behind fence of industrial unit, getting dark at visit so image not good, appears to be good condition.

Kindly escorted round by site manager - otherwise its "hard hat, steel capped boots and a high-viz jacket" needed

Seemed an easy one from the map. On approaching thought it maybe missing due to new buildings. However, found it behind leylandi hedge sandwiched between wire fence and warehouse wall!

This trig is trapped between a wire fence and the back of an industrial unit and surrounded by well established bushes etc.can't see this trig being used in this condition.Surprised it still exists.

Visible (now the undergrowth has died back a bit) inside fence to industrial unit - unfortunately the 2m gap between the fence and the unit is also inhabited by a large bush ... FB number from trigonomy

A little imagination required ... It's amazing the pictures you get when you stick your arm as far into a bush as you can and press the button!

Couldn't find it 16th Jul 2004  08:15  by elsworth

If it's still there, it's inside an impenetrable "hedge" inside the fence of a warehouse
