Parked in at the gate to the north and battled through Storm Brian along the bridlepath to the pillar via a short detour. Pillar buried in a Hawthorne hedge, damage to the top corner probably caused during hedge cutting.

A pleasant walk up Midshires Way, although rather churned by horses, then through a gap to the adjacent field. Quite good views from here, although less pleasing to the SE over Old Dalby industrial area.

Found whilst geocaching, it was trying to hide in the hedge, doing a good job too as it blends in rather well.

Standing out from hedge at this time of year. Nice walk down Midshires Way despite the fog, listening to trains on the adjacent line. Three visible s/holes all closed but S buried in hedge. Metal cap raised letters, vgc.

This one would be very difficult to find in summer but hedge being bare helped.

3/4 This looked a doddle on the map! I parked on the road where the Midshires Way intersected it and followed the path. It took me a while to find this one as it was almost completely overgrown in a hedge. I walked past it initially but eventually located it. Using boots, I managed to clear three sides of the pillar and hopefully will be more visible for a while. Ah, the joys of trigging.

Walked up bridleway from N - and put up a Hare. As per others, TP in N side of hedge, but easily visible, and accessible, at this time of year, and in good condition. Audible traffic hum but pleasant enough with grey views along Wolds to S and E.

In a hedge, on agricultural land. Isn't it amazing the number of trig points in hedgerows ....
