Did this Trig with HKMHill whilst out completing the Meon Hill series of Geocaches. This one is accessible quite easily from the nearby road. It is along a dry stone wall. It is in good shape and showing no signs of damage. Good views in one direction. Elevation 331 meters.

Would have scored higher but for the wind and rain. So Garth started here with his paint. Easily found off the bridleway. Not quite the County Top of Warwickshire as this lies 100m to the east in the field on the other side of the road. Unbelievably I had no mobile signal here with transmitters metres away. Third county top in three days added to Oxon's and Bucks's.

Questioned by a policeman in a huge Range Rover when I returned to the road, about why I was "snooping" around the transmitter masts. I recounted this story my uncle when I got home. "Was there a woman police officer with him?" He said. Yes, was the answer. "You should have asked him what he was doing on duty in the middle of nowhere in a 100,000 vehicle ... I bet he wasn't looking for you!"

So hazy there was not much of a view but it looks like there was potential. Radar station ugly. Roamed around to try and find Warwickshire's highest point whuch appears to be in field opposite the radar station. Whitewashed trig easy to access along field edge where plenty of people have walked before.

Located on a field boundary approx 125m from a public path, a short trespass is needed. We bagged this trig on a circular walk from Ilmington, whilst also bagging the nearby Warwickshire county top, Ebrington Hill.

Painted. this pillar seems to be on the county border, and as it is only 100m from the highest point in Warwickshire I think it should be in that county and renamed Ebrington Hill, as on the map

Easily accessible from the nearby bridleway and just 100 yards or so off the lane. Original plug -slightly-indented letters. E sighthole open, the others not visible. No paint. In stone wall between two arable fields. Plug is quite pock-marked. Lovely views all round - although a bit misty today. Shame about the dreaded mobile phone masts!! Managed to find the geocache after a great deal of searching. Three buzzards circling overhead.

I was slightly disappointed to find that one can drive all the way to Warwickshires top. It sort of takes the fun out of it. Being able to bag a trig while I was here made up for it though as did seeing some goldfinches. Walk to the back of the mast complex and then follow the stone wall to the right.
