Today rather grey but still extensive views from the edge of the escarpment, and lots of kites and radio-controlled gliders aloft. S s/hole open, asphalt cap, reasonable white paint job, no S in the number, vgc (not clear why damaged).

The surrounding area is absolutely fantastic but the location of the Trigpointing is pretty bad, it's located right next to the road and car park entrance. I was here activating the trig for the WAB amateur radio award and space was limited to setup, antenna was setup in the ditch adjacent to the trigpoint!

Driving home from a job in central London. Parked in NT car park, which is now 3 quid. Trig pillar spotted immediately on turning into the car park. Condition for me is good, although paintwork is beginning to fade again. A busy place, many kites were being flown today. Views were a bit hazy today unfortunately, however pleased to note from other logs that my first trig in Bedfordshire is actually the high point of the county and a primary to boot.

Didn't see any damage to the pillar so have marked its condition as 'good'. Looking back at previous comments it's variously been marked as 'good' or 'slightly damaged'. Only damage that's been commented on is the missing plug - not sure that's classed as damage - could the admin comment so we all know? Parked a bit south of the trig to avoid the NT charges and also to stretch legs and watch some of the kite flying, something I used to do a bit of. Pillar is still looking quite smart in its white coat.

Sad that the trig is rather isolated at the entrance to the NT Visitor Centre car park. Not impressed with the Visitor Centre either which rather spoils the scene. However it is nice to see this is still the place to come and fly kites and the views are great from the escarpment. Another county top knocked off by Shorty and Extra Shorty.

As MCL states in his log, there is no 'S' prefix for the number on the flush bracket. In keeping with my usual method, I'm logging this as 'slightly damaged' because the centre plug has been removed and the hole filled with cement.

Pillar is in corner of farmland field, within 10m of the road, and in clear view. There are no obscuring hedges or fences. The pillar has an OS Passive GPS station plate on the side as well as the usual flush bracket. The number off the plate is missing the "S" prefix that the OS say it has, but my photo shows its absence!

Nice views from here; the trig point is easy to access. The pillar marks the highet point in the county.

Seem to remember hang gliders around on the day I was here, or may be a bit further north clear of the trees on the scarp. This is really the last significant high point of the Chilterns.
