K The slightly sunken trig is all intact. The car park bollards nearby have been bent over by cars that haven't judged the narrow width correctly. Other than the immediate roadside there is a small view across an area of tree fringed parkland SE.

Nice easy drive by. Car park right next to trig, which is on a grass verge about 5yds from the car park.

Well, this one was an easy one, but be careful if you are taking a 4WD into the adjacent car park! Metal cap, shallow letters, amazing it has survived in such a public location. All s/holes underground, otherwise vgc.

Just about time to squeeze in a crafy trig during a pretty hectic day. Not the most captivating of pillars, but time was of the essence today.

For about a year I have been plotting a quick bag off the M1 whilst returning from London. And after a fair bit of research, yes I did it! No map either, so it did take a missed turn in the town or two. As it turns out it's actually on the roadside I was expecting it on the cricket field. Useful car park, but what are those narrow posts all about - take care! It never was a simple hobby......was chatting to a colleague while inspecting the trig - VGC, original plug. Sinking into the ground a bit, FB can just about be made out still.

Moderately interesting location in that the nearby woods have an ancient tumulus in them. Good condition, cap intact. The ground is obviously higher now than when the pillar was built... Maybe they put a new layer of dirt over the old ground and called it Hemel Hempstead....:P

On grass verge near housing estate. Looks squat but FB visible, and retains original metalwork. Early start and barely light

A very easy ‘drive-by’ but in fact I parked in the adjacent carpark… A tight squeeze through the posts for a big car. This trig is in very good condition with all it’s metalwork intact… Probably because of it’s urban location rather than in spite of it. Unfortunately, my previously 100% reliable Canon A70 chose this time to chuck a wobbly and the photographs turned out to be rubbish, although I did manage to salvage a shot of the flush bracket.

They dont get a lot easier than this - Pillar in surprisingly good condition for an urban location, looks like it has sunk a bit or has the ground built up?

Easy trig this one. It is located just by the side of the road, but right enough, it appears to be sinking! 2nd of the day.

The most amazing thing about this pillar is that considering it is in the open in the middle of a housing area it is remarkably unblemished. Other than one set of initials carved on it, it has suffered no vandalism. The ground it sits on must be rising over a period of time as it has now reaced the bottom of the plate and needed debris clearing from it to see the bottom. Logged at N51 45.817 W000 26.886
