Near to road with just a ditch to jump. Very ordinary trig but a splendid name, so given a 7 out of 10.

Could find no damage other than centre cap missing, replaced by composite disc. Located in fallow ground a few metres in from an arable field boundary. All sight holes open.

Trig sits at the edge of a field opposite a very tall mast.

A fairly unremarkable trig point I must say but much more exciting than a buried block so I son't complain too much.

Parked at entrance to the mast as pillar is roadside. Had to leap the ditch. Pillar looks in good condition. Typical flattish views but quite extensive to the north west.

Travelling around county-bagging and geocaching while camping for the geocaching Essex Mega, as well as finding a trig point if possible! Parked nearby, TP seems in good condition and good countryside views around.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Great name. Lovely spot. By country lane and radio mast just in cereal field. Plug gone with plastic cap and OS plaque. Extensive views N and W. Warm sun, slight breeze - and an inquistive cyclist wanting to know how TP's worked.

It is an offence to damage it

This trig point is very easy to get at as it is along side a minor road about 6 km south west of Haverhill. The concrete pillar is undamaged but the bronze plug in the centre at the top is missing and has been replaced with a plastic bung. It also carries a second plaque stating that it is an offence to damage a triangulation point and gives the OS help line telephone number to report any damage. Opposite the trig point is a radio mast and there is room to park a car in front of that. The views are good without being spectacular.

The Trig Point Located in a wheat field just a few feet from the road.

The 'Additional' Plate
The view south It's this close to the road. Right next to a communication tower.
