Unless this un is hovering above the cutting and has a cloaking device activated its another gonner.

Passes by today with the rambling group on the footpath to the west of the old trig site. As has been said, the pillar was removed by the re-alligned A5.

Revisited for site photo (of S2315, not S2316). Things have changed since my 2002 visit! GPS indicated middle of west-bound c/way of dualled A5, 12m W of <P 1 mile> sign, elev 130m. Trig was 151.927m according to OS website, 22m above current road surface. I had thought of checking along the edge of the woodland immediately to NW, which survives more or less as mapped, but there seemed to be someone standing up there on the skyline so I gave it a miss, but you never know....

S2315: 5m N of GPS location ©peregrinus
S2315: behind sign and up 22m ! ©peregrinus
S2315: middle of nearest c/way. S2316 is now beside mast visible on skyline.©peregrinus

did this together with Hopwas and can confirm the trig on the side of the quarry near the mast is S2316 and not S2315, had a quick look round for this 1 but no sign of it.

NON (RE)VISIT LOG. Pretty sure kevjtrig has found S2316 Hopwas, not S2315 Hints Hill. At any rate, S2316 Hopwas was in the position described here as of 30 Sep 06 - see pics and logs on TP4016 page.

Ha! No trigs logged for nearly two years, but I'm back! I can't compete with those who book 10 a day and packed it in for a while (there's more to life...). I visited this one on Sunday and it is there - dumped alongside the compound of the TV mast (can't miss it - about 500ft high). Only found with a spot of luck, but it's good to say that all fellow trigpointers are wrong on this one. Photo to follow. How about a 'competition' to use leg power rather than petrol to visit trigs?

'ere 'tis Hints trig pillar dumped but intact.
Zoomed in.

Now well and truely under the eathworks that appear to make up a new dual carriageway for the A5 avoiding the village of Hints

Long since disappeared by the quarry works and at a guess was replaced by Hopwas.

Did not get very close to this one but could see no sign of it and its not mapped so I will have to agree with fasgadh think its gone.

They must have kept building them up there. Hopwas was in a part of the quarry that is now finsihed, near the mast, this one is in the active area. Its not on the map, and a look from across the hill suggests that anything there has been quarried away
