Just a 'drive-by' on this occasion. Wood Green Animal Shelter is not far from the A14 and a convenient break in our journey north from Kent to Tyneside. Cafeteria has limited opening times but suits us well.

On way down to visit daughter and hubby in their new house, and couldn't resist bagging a couple of trigs. Trig is easily spotted in the verge S of entrance to animal rescue place. I drove past the trig and drove on to the verge, don't park in the entrance to the rescue centre as there is CCTV there. No views as such.

Roadside but due to busy road and one way system thru' animal sanctuary (which was very busy), you MUST go into free car park

Been here so many times before, this time specifically to bag the trig. Dull views on a dull day. Pillar in good condition though and metalwork all complete.

Visiting this trig provided a welcome diversion from our route North. Parked in Wood Green animal shelter and made use of their facilities - much nicer than motorway service areas and food and drink at reasonable prices. Pillar is also very visible on Google maps.

One of the easiest bags ever as you can virtually park next to it. Slightly eroded at the base where the ditch has been cut but I doubt it'll get any worse and the pillar itself is in very good nick.

Trigbagging, Bagged sometime early 2009 or late 2008, Couldn't believe I had been to the animal shelter a few times in the past and didn't see the trig, I didn't know it even existed. Drove to Airfield Lane trig afterwards.

I wouldn't of said this Trigpoint was damaged. If it was I didn't spot it properly so I have logged it as good. In fact it was the first of 3 today that were pleasantly found with all their features intact. Anyway a very easy Trig to log. Located at the main entrance of the Wood Green animal shelter and impossible to miss. The base has been exposed by the ditch over time but nothing to drastic.

Nice easy find by the Woodgreen sign. I am still new to this and it is refreshing to see one by the side of the road that is easily spotted.

There is a visible crack in the soil around the base of this pillar. The base is exposed on the Western side where a drainage ditch runs by. I agree that the ditch is the likely last resting place for this pillar, but it will probably take a number of years before gravity finally beats it.

Yup certainly slightly damaged. Base is too exposed and is crumbling into the small ditch. Yes it *was* 3am when I did this one. No I'm not mad. Probably

You can't miss this one! Right under the sign for the Wood Green animal shelter on the A1198 south of Huntingdon. The pillar is on the edge of a drainage ditch and it looks like it might have a slight lean towards it.
