From road through village, took footpath to the east, was strangely drawn to the masts and reservoir on the south of the field. Thatís the wrong way, so, long way around to the north side of the field. Pillar is in the hedge, easy enough to spot when walking past it but not from a distance. Luckily the FB is on the south side facing the path. Raised S prefix. Some views towards the north over the hedge.

In the perfect place to just about squeeze in the views to the north and south. Quite extensive on a clear day.

Found whilst walking the NDW - about 150 ft from footpath. TP in hedgerow and not easily visible but FP thankfully points out to the field.

Walking the NDW and the trig point is a few yards off hiding in the hedgerow. Beautiful day with hawks and a spitfire flying overhead.

Not the easiest place to find a parking spot! Eventually squeezed in near the Three Horseshoes and walked up to join the NDW. Very pleasant walk and although the pillar is disappearing into the hedge it is still quite visible. Spitfire flew over us several times. Assume it is facing a reservoir but can't find out anything about the mound by the masts.

Parked on edge of the 'village green' (TQ 4664 5862). RoW to the trig located on SW side of a not very dense beech hedgerow which is trying to swallow the trig whole! Pillar retains an original centre cap, indented lettering; rear sight hole open; BSM-style FB. Views not noted as raining, again.

Return visit, this time on a circular walk from Cudham taking in part of the NDW. Beautiful early summer's day - sunny, fluffy clouds and a breeze which was mesmerising in rippling the barley fields. Sadly three of the huge Knockholt beeches have come down in the storms earlier this year. Condition unchanged from our visit five years ago - metal cap, shallow letters, vgc.

Second trig of the day on this leg of our NDW walk (actually just off it but easy both to find and access from the path just to the S). Good condition and mostly cleared of vegetation, but lacked extensive views

This was one of those Trigs that I decided to do having not researched the site first, so for all I knew it might not have been there. By the time the light was fading fast I was beginning to think that this was going to be a removed or couldn't find it situation. Despite the bold sign on my O/S 147 it didn't appear to be here. My two little helpers were having no luck either so I said we'll have one last intense root around this hedgerow and Hey Presto! buried behind thick undergrowth I found it . The kid's helped in creating an opening so that we could take the accompanying pictures. The Trig is in good condition with Spider and FB all present and correct. Future loggers need to be aware that it is set well back in the hedgerow and this will no doubt reclaim the nice opening that we made by this time next year.

Approach from the E is shortest but you need to leave a car in a gateway to do it very overgrown at this time of year

Located about 50 meters from the foot path at the side of a field, almost completely lost in the hedge - Strange that the FB number is the same as Box Hill?

Found buried in the hedgerow (which has had a trim since the last visit and no stingers). It took a while to locate as the wood is quite thick but in the end, it wasn't in the wood at all! Access is via an opening to a recently cultivated field.

Return visit and this time I found it. The pillar was hiding in a thick hedgerow protected by stinging nettles - OUCH! The pillar is in good condition with the screw cap in place.

The maps show this trigpoint as being on the edge of a small rectangle of woodland. In reality the ground of the wood was heavily overgrown, as well as being very wet on this particular day. By the time I reached the site I was sopping wet and had just about lost interest in the damn thing! It was not visible, so I decided to leave it and return under better conditions.

Walked dog (Widget's predecessor) from PH in village. Saw fox by copse! TP tucked into hedge on plateau. Views impeded by trees.
