Drove along road, thought we would find trig easier but because we didn't look at trig logs I was surprised to see it toppled. Drove to and bagged Whatborough Hill trig before, failed to find Millfield Clump trig and bagged Langton Caudle trig after.

Lying in the hedge row opposite the entrance to the mast, access through a gateway on the main road then a short walk round the field edge.

All intacr. Found on its side in hedge opposite gates to mast. Can no longer be seen from the road so had to crawl through dense hedge to get to this one.

I was in the area and spotted the blue trig triangle on my OS map but was not aware that the trig was supposedly moved as I'd not looked in here , so pulled up and parked a few yards away on the grass verge and walked along the lane looking in the hedge. Spotted the fallen pillar from the road side : no handy hedge gap in the sturdy hawthorn, and with tractors trundling up & down the farm driveway in the field I did not feel brave enough to walk the long way around , so could not see the FB, just the back of the pillar which appears whole and in reasonable condition .

Parked in the entrance to the nearby radio mast, then walked round to farm road entrance to cross field to GZ. Pillar lying toppled in hedge, seemingly pretty close to original coords given my GPS reading. Not too much in the way of good views on a grey mizzly day. Young farmer stopped his tractor to query my presence, when I explained I was just checking out the trig he was fine.

Ok it’s toppled but it seems to be very near its original location – the ground to west is higher – I wonder why it wasn’t placed up there.

9/20 Parked in the lane to Seldom Seen farm. The pillar is in a field off Nether Court farm. Although toppled, the flush bracket is visible.

A joint visit with Carole. We did like others have done and parked at the entrance to the radio mast and then walked back to the cross roads. We entered the field over the cattle grid on the drive to Nether Court farm. It was just a case of following the hedgeline back to reach the pillar. Whilst lying on its side the flush bracket is still visible. By touch the plug has long gone though. Shame we have lost this one but is still there to visiy and touch.

When parked in aerial layby the trig can be spotted through the hedge to the right of a tree. Walk down to crossroads and there is a a cattlegrid leading into the field about 20 metres to your left. There is a Caravan Club sign. Trig easily reached by following hedges round edge of field. Trig not spotted until almost at it. I attempted to clear encroaching grass and suchlike from around the toppled trig. Not much of a view from trig field (on my visit it was freshly ploughed) but fantastic views on approach.

As per previous logs - lying on its side on at edge of sheep field. Visible through hedge from road - its almost immediately opposite the transmitter compound - but I walked round perimeter of field from farm entrance to log FB. Murky, wet and cold.

An easy one to start the day. Parked at the mast entrance and then walked around to the farm entrance and back towards the car around the field boundary.

had some time spare after earlier trigs so got here with just the map and no grid ref,looked easy on the map but spent 15 minutes walking up and down the lane, decieded it must be in the transmitter compound and spent another 10 minutes fighting through the hedge to get in,back out and another look at the map showed what i already know really that it must be on the other side of the road,had another walk up and down the lane with still no sign, give up and back in car and onto main road towards Leicester,saw farm entrance and just couldn't resist 1 last look, saw it straight away from the drive and followed hedge round,if i had read the previous logs before would have been easy but less fun.
