Trig skulking on garden side of hedge from lane though visible through hedge at back of mobile home. Pleasant walk in the spring sunshine along Little Lane with butterflies and bumblebees. View quite expansive north including towards Nottingham but the city does not look particularly attractive from here.

Parked on main road and walked up the lane. Trig is almost in someone's garden next to one of two caravans but you can get to it straight from the lane.

Parked on road then easy walk up bridleway to pillar. No longer being used as a bird table but instead had small mattresses stacked against it.

Next to caravans but whole place deserted! Drove all the way up but would not be recommended in a Lotus. W s/hole open, all others buried, no views, but metal cap, shallow letters and vgc.

Parked on Tollerton Lane and walked up Little Lane to the farm. Pillar is near to the hedge on farmland and surrounded by old static caravans. Not in use as a bird table on this lovely, bright sunny day. It would be possible to drive a fair way up the lane/track if needed.

Walked up from Tollerton church carpark. The trigpoint is now being used as a bird table with slices of old bread. Continued onto Clipston.

Easy walk from Edwalton and bagged the trig just off the public footpath, had to crawl through a hedge to reach the trig though.

Access to the farm to seek permission is not currently possible as 'Please do not enter' sign in relation to healthy pigs. Sneaked through hedge to pillar but several dogs started barking so did not stay for the view

Parked in Tollerton Village & walked up track. Shown to the trig-point by very friendly & talkative landowner. All metalwork intact but flush bracket difficult to see. Good views over Nottingham.

Behind the Homestead Farm Farmhouse. A very nice lady showed me were it was. She said a few folks come to find it like me, and a few student parties. Presumable surveyors on days out. Not very scenic there though, next to a couple of disused caravans.

A little bit trespassy as the caravans show signs of recent occupation and the top of the trig is being used as a bird table. Plug with indented lettering.

Pillar intact including plug. Rather grotty spot in hedge on bridleway with rusty caravans on edge of farm but good views NW over Nottingham.
