Found as YOSM 366. Parked in car park and made the short climb to the TP on a plateau which had glimpses of London skyline at certain spots. The TP was on a cobbled base and painted grey.

Up from the Grand Union Canal, very peaceful and spring like, amazed at the polyglot of languages we heard amongst fellow walkers. Great views N from the trig, and W if you walk 20 yds north, including Windsor Castle and the stream of planes coming into Heathrow. Whole of trig, incl FB, is painted in anti-vandal paint, centre and SE s/hole open and one of the top loops broken, otherwise vgc.

The final trig on a journey including 5 from The Kiln - Belmont - Barn Hill - One Tree Hill This one definatley the favourite.

Easy ascent into the suberbs to Sudbury Town station, changed at rayners lane and got the met home to watford, overall, satisfying day out trigging!

Took the tube south to Sudbury Town and walked south west through the residential area then up the hill through the golf course. Watch out for golf balls!! The pillar is resplendent on itís cobbled plinth and is sporting a coat of Battleship Grey paint. The centre plug has been replaced with tar-mac but apart from that, the pillar is in good condition. The views are reasonable, particularly to the north and east.

Middlesex. The hill is a good viewpoint and you can see into four counties as well as Middlesex. Walked to this trig from Kingsbury via the surface block and Barn Hill. Afterwards we continued on foot following the canal to One Tree Hill Recreation Ground. Asphalt plug.

nice walk up from the canal, I was going to say I was in the area so could not resist nipping up to bag the trig but the truth is i was xmas shopping in Oxford street when a irresistible urge to rejoin the real world got the better of me,sure there are those who will argue that shopping in Oxford street is the real world and it's those looking at bits of concrete in fields that are in a all together stranger world.

Car park closed so had to park at pub. Quick sprint up the hill to arrive just as the sun was setting. Nice wintery views over west London at dusk. Anti-graffiti paint still doing its job on the TP.

FB Number Weather and my poor camera couldn't get a good pic of the view but at least the number was achievable.
