A roadside trig, but in a great area, just down from a rural cricket ground, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It's also a 2 for 1, as I've just discovered it's a YOSM cache as well.

Easy roadside. By cricket pitch, war memorial, and ridge and furrow cow pasture. Views N to Charnwood Forest. Plastic disc for plug. I think this is 'slightly damaged' due to crack near top and chip from corner.Pleasant spot - would be even better on a sunny day.
