It was 0800 on a Misty Tuesday morning. I wasn't going to bother the good residents of 5 Edale Rise at that hour, and I've seen back garden trigs before, so I'm happy to bag this as (close but) inaccessible, the 2nd today.

As my visit was on a Sunday morning I didn't want to disturb the owners so parked at the tram terminus and followed the unofficial although apparently well used footpath around the field to within a metre of the pillar. Easily spotted through the hedge at this time of year.

Very friendly home owner showed us round to trig in back garden and told us about all the house they are planning to be built in the field behind the house. Also said he I hoping to repaint the trig sometime this summer.

Fifth of 8 on a cycle ride W of Nottingham. Went to 5 Edale Rise, knocked on the door with no answer, turned to leave feeling disappointed when the lady of the house emerged from the back emptying garden clippings into the bin. Permission was given, and I met hubby who showed me the trig, neatly painted white. Views N/NW, over fields which are under threat of housing development, HS2 rail line is planned to go nearby. A friendly and helpful couple. On to Stapleford.

Given this one an 8 for the sheer hospitality of the owner,set in a lovely garden with commanding views,although the fields adjacent the garden could be developed in the next few years if local planners get their way which is a real shame.theyve lived at no.5 for 28 years and didnt realise the pillar was there when they moved in,its all intact and may soon be getting a fresh coat of paint,a perfect addition to this garden and a great chap with plenty of good trig tales.another note of interest is the pillar should be renamed "high tor"as this is the official name.

A request to the householder to allow a visit and photo session to his trig pillar was very kindly granted. It really was nice to see such a well maintained and cared for pillar. There would have been no chance of even viewing from the adjacent field so my expression of gratitude was genuine. Although I am not sure that my suggestion that having a trig pillar in ones garden puts several thousand pounds onto the value of the property!

Walked from Toton Sidings along field edge in very muddy conditions was expecting to be able to get through onto the Edale Avenue but had to be content with view over the hedge. Would have been better to drive there and park in the street.

no one home so had a quick look in back garden, no access to field from edale rise, had a walk round and found the path into the field but no great view of trig, hedge blocking clear view to trig.

This gets a high mark for such a quirky location - not everybody can boast a trig in their back garden.

We asked at the house and access was no problem - a nice lady said help yourself, it's just behind the conservatory. Had to brush aside the ornamental conifers to read the FB. Plug with indented lettering.

A lovely feature in the back garden of 'High Tor', No.5 Edale Rise. As a previous visitor has logged, the owner has adopted the pillar which he has painted beautifully white [he told me that 2005 will see a fresh coat as the present one is peeling!]. Original plug with slightly indented letters. All sightholes closed. Good views NW but otherwise the bungalow obscures the view.

Having failed to locate the trig in September I returned today with rather greater success. The hawthorn hedge that shields it from view is now devoid of leaves and the trig is now (just)visible from the field. From the footpath aim across the field just to the left of the two tall conifers.

Popped up to bag the TrigPoint and bring Father Ted's Trig Point TB for a visit. I obtained permission from the owner of the house whose garden the TP now lives in and I have his contact details if anyone wants to give it a try. The owner told me that he has adopted ownership of the pillar off the OS which I found interesting! The Hokesters...

Easy approach across field, now that the crop has been harvested. Inside garden of 5 Edale Rise, but garden rubbish thrown over hedge provides handy vantage point to photograph pillar. Freshly painted white and in excellent condition with all metalwork complete. Good views over the Erewash Valley

Another one which is 200m from the public path, but this time across a field of wheat. An unofficial but well-used field edge path goes as close as 100m, but then peters out. Probably in the garden of 28 Spinney Rise, or possibly the adjacent property on Edale Rise. Incidentally, no 2 Edale Rise perpetuates the name "High Acre". Shown on 1:50 000 and 1:25 000 maps, but not on 1:10 000 map, but that doesn't mean it's not there, of course!

This trig is making a nice garden feature for someone in Eda Road. The garden backs on to a field bordering Stapleford Lane. There appears to be no access to the field from the estate. The flush bracket faces the house I think so is not readable from the field.
