The last time I visited this trig point was 28 years ago while walking the Ridgeway National trail. The weather was much better that day, very warm and sunny but it was May. Extra points for bringing back such good memories.

Went after this one en route to the Wallingford Bunkfest with my missus, purely so we could take a photo of a trig with our hats on it, in response to something a friend had posted on Facebook. On finding the trig, we saw that a previous visitor had left *their* hat on it, which we had to remove before taking our photos with our own headgear. Trig in excellent condition beside a pathway which runs down the middle of two hedge rows that separate two fields (and robbed us of any sort of view).

Bagged as YSM188 Grims Ditch. Another one with a fantastic name. This name sounds like something out of a fairy tale. We had finished all our YOSMs on the list so started to chalk ones off tomorrow's list. Parked on the road at the start of the track and a nice wee evening walk along to the pillar. It will be a novelty to get back to the hotel at a reasonable hour and in daylight. We might even manage some food and a drink but we were both still full after the amazing lunch in The Three Tuns in Great Bedwyn.

On an afternoon out while staying nearby. If you have to drive you can park nearby on a grass verge. You can also approach on foot from the north by a very wide foot path - I didn't upload a picture of the pilliar as there are lots on here. If you are interested in aircraft RAF Benson is near by qute and few aircraft fly over.

The path from the North This is the path across the field that comes from the north. You can't miss it!

Today I decided that I was going to have a day grabbing a couple of trig pillars (one before and one after work) This was the second on the way home. I had been to this one before to find a geocache so new the location. Last time I saw this pillar I had no idea what it was or why it was so it was good to now know. The path was busy today with walkers but they soon passed so I was able to grab some photos undisturbed.

This was an easy one to find atop of Grim's Ditch and now on the course of the Ridgeway National Trail. Today the countryside hereabouts was a mixture of yellow (oil seed rape) and green, with many varieties of spring flowers growing on Grim's Ditch:greater stitchwort, bluebell, cowslip, dandelion, common dog-violet and wood sorrel. A wonderful array. Plenty of gormless pheasants about, but worryingly I still haven't heard the cuckoo yet this springtime.

A short walk along part of the Ridgeway to reach this one after parking where the footpath crosses the road to the east. The concrete is in good condition but not un-usually for a location like this, adjacent to a well used path, the centre plug has been taken. The views north and south are OK but nothing special.

Nice to pass directly by a trig while walking the Ridgeway and even better when you find one which has a nesting blue tit in it, for more of an informative log see Bekandians post.Usualy I would not give this such a high mark but due to the blue tit I think it deservs it.

We just had to write another note about this Trig Point! We were waiting by it for Andy to turn up, and as Ian lent against it a terrifying noise came up from the bowels of the TP!!!! Every time we tried to find out what was inside, this noise pooofed up scaring us away, so we spent quite a while wondering what it could be. A bat, a weasel, ferret, and then a snake came to mind and we were really cautious about looking over now. Eventually Andy turned up and he was also scared away when he heard the noise from within! Finally we managed to capture a photo that allowed us to see what was inside, and it was not what we expected in the least! So, if you are visiting this TP at the moment, be very afraid and careful of the blowing spitting blue tit nesting inside it! If you want to hear what noise was coming from the Trig Point, then go here: http://dontgohere.nu/gfx/caches/Strange_Noises_From_Within.mp3

Nicely visible on raised dyke only gets a 4 because of the smeel from nearby field of pigs. Parking where bridleway crosses road to east

Very easy to find, on path on top of Dyke. Reasonable views for a low lying point.

Very easy to find right on the Ridgeway path and the Iron Age feature Grim's Ditch. The pillar has some minor damage and the plug is missing. Good views across Wallingford to the north.

Walked past this one on the Ridgeway LDP. Surprisingly good views for such a low trigpoint

KN Date approx Visited trig point on a circular walk from Wallingford Town Centre where our youth group has been staying in a Church Hall and making too much noise for the locals liking.

Local trig point. Revisted in 1980 (to photograph when painted white and enclosed in hedge), 1986 (with brother before retiring to the King William for a 'swift half') and in 2007 with Chris Cursley(before bagging the Wallingford FBM)
