I parked in the layby to make my way round the field edge. The field is given over to rape this summer, and the field edge was overgrown with brambles; not the easiest of walks in, and didn't see the pillar until I was almost on top of it.

Bagged this one after a days caching. Pillar in great condition, but the views are not that spectacular. Had to beat down the overgrown hedge to get to the trig itself. Elevation 131 meters.

Not quite as expected from map - from road bend to NE, up field boundary, round a small copse with brick structures to continue up field to white trig

Like K & G's log for T2397 - Copdock Hill - this one has also been painted white very recently (white paint on surrounding dead grass) - is this a campaign on behalf of a Warwickshire Trig Action Group. Now very visible from nearby A422.

In a hedge on the side of an arable field with another convenient layby for parking. All intact with central plug. Some superficial cracking on the top and deep holes under the hooks. A minor repair under the flush bracket. Fine views NE to Warwick, where St. Mary's church tower is clearly seen, and SW to Edge Hill.
