(1046) An easy one to get to - a succession of narrow fen roads brings you right to it. There's a fairly large pull-in just shy of the pillar, but you can drive right up to it. As I arrived so did a anxious looking farmer. Two cows had gotten loose, and was roaming free near the pillar, but they didn't cause any bother. Well, not to me at least. Pillar all good, though the cap is a replacement one. OS plaque in place. Nettles quite high around the FB, but soon trampled down. An earlier pillar (TP10119) used to be at the location, but no sign of that remains.

Collected as YSM056 Gedney Drove End after geocaching nearby for the day and seeking to escape the queues on the A17.

Pouring rain but we drove right up to this one. Just in the corner of the field next to the lane.

Forlorn little trig in corner of open field. Gave it a hug, just to let it know it was loved.

Plastic cap. No views from this pillar. Its a surprise that it is not on top of the neighbouring embankment.

Bagged this Trig after completing the nearby cache, it was a bit bleak out here today. This place really is the end of the earth.I can see why being posted down here was considered a punishment posting for the local old Bill.

Arrived at Gedney to do an AA walk but the weather was awful Judy informed me of Trig Pillar in this area,drove the road and was surprised at its locction.The reason being this sea wall is a second one to claim more land for farming.If you make it to Gedney pop in and see Ernie at the Rising Sun WOW did not realise places like this still existed.Did the walk in torrential rain total change of clothes when we arrived back at car.This part of the wash is a training area for the RAF,so it is well worth a walk along sea wall to view targets etc.

View a little poor but not surprising considering the low lying nature of the area.

The first location on day two of my East Anglia expedition. This T/P is at the side of the road and easily accessible. Itís generally in good condition with a small chip out of one top edge and a replacement plug. The views arenít much with dyke on two sides and arable farm land on the others.

The FB no is definitely 10673 not S1067 as according to the OS list. Plug is missing with a plastic bung in its place. GPS plaque.

This trig point is quite easy to access, being on a path and quite near to the sea bank.
