Easy to get to from the road as there is a gap in the hedge just by it. The day started off with bright sunshine but now it looks like rain and it starting to spit.

Easy access. Apart from the missing chunks, pretty good condition. Had to excavate the FB number - soil is piled against the side.

Just inside a hedge, with easy access. As previously reported, some small chunks of the pillar are missing. Flush bracket very nearly buried!

No significant damage really. The trig is now next to a giant heap of manure, but the weather was so cold that it didn't pong. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

This one is on the edge of a broad bean field, just inside the field from the lane to Little Tew with a convenient hedge break for access. It's all intact with the original plug with indented letters. There are some chunks of concrete out of one side and some on the top edges also. All sight holes closed and very little paint on it. There are good views Southwards but North views are blocked by the hedge and.....yes, you've guessed it - a mobile phone mast!!!
