Parked in the Homebase carpark. And walked up FP to access the trig. No horses in the field. Trig has nice new coat of white paint. Good views to W. Got my self some bargains from Homebase as it was closing down and some stuff was 70% off.

Dartmoor Deliverer and I were geocaching in area and luckily she earpiece this trig point on her GPS mapping, whereas I was using my iPad which uses street mapping which although good doesn't show trig points which I find frustrating! Trig point easily found in hedge and number was very helpfully facing the field so no clambering under the fence to gain the number for a change! Good condition with spider intact, and good views over the Bristol suburbs.

Pleasant part of Bristol / S Glos. Parking on cul de sac at ST 65492 71435 for walk up the 'dog-walkers' hill. Pillar only accessible form W side of hedgerow, bit tricksie finding a way through, found a stile eventually appox 70m NNE of trig. Pillar found with reasonably substantial chipping to top edges, hence classifying as 'slightly damaged'. Cap missing, asphalt plug; all sight holes open (including the awkward rear hole - no secateurs to trim back the thorn!); BSM-style FB. Overlooking hospital and residential housing, but too foggy this morning to see much.

A rainy day so a muddy walk up to this one. The pillar is just in the same field that the footpath crosses so very easy to access. The horses were not bothered. At least three of the sight holes are open but I didn't check the one facing the hedge. There is slight damage to top edges, but still generally good.

Note to self: Don't go trigpointing in a hail storm without waterproof trousers. Walked up from the farm, round the field adjacent to the trig and nipped over the stile to find the trig, plenty of well trodden paths. Would have been quite a nice view if it wasn't for the gale force winds and hail coming up the the Bristol channel. Nice enough views over Bristol and beyond.

Next to a hawthorn hedge in a field grazed by horses on the edge of a flat summit, it was once painted white, the spider and asphalt plug appear to have been whitewashed and it has BsM 3356. It looks westward over downtown Bristol to Dundry Down. From the other side of the hedge the line of the Cotswolds from Kelston Round Hill to Hanging Hill can be seen.

We parked at B&Q and then walked up the A431 until we found the footpath sign. This one is painted white so it's easy to spot when you climb over two stiles in quick succession. It's between a hedge and a barbed wire fence. Good views over Cadbury Heath. Tarmac plug.

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! It was Xmas Eve and I was staying at my mother-in-law's. My map notes say, "Parked near Banham Ct then ran up hill. Found it eventually after a wrong turn. Had to read map without specs and with rain blurring the poly bag! Views S & E obscured somewhat by the weather."

I saw this from my bedroom about 3 miles distant, standing out painted bright white. Always wondered what they were. I had in my mind all the triangles were the same shape ( for some reason this made perfect sense ). Visited many many times whilst on cross country running in later years at school.
