The pillar is not at the stated co-ordinates but at N 52 19.015 W 001 57.207, it is much closer to the farm than the structure on the hill, lying on its back, but other than that in excellent condition. My closest to home, so long overdue for me to bag, dodging cows and donkeys in the fields.

At last, back out trigging. A long pause since the last in early November. Having visited all the extant pillars in a large area of Central England it has become harder to reach anything new. This became by far the closest to home when it was found at its new site. Followed a very familiar way out from home to the East of Birmingham, before swinging more Westward through Knowle, Hockley Heath and Beoley. Logged just over 50 miles. Easily found and reached with directions on this site.

I tried to find this one early on in my trig pointing career so was very interested when I saw that it had been reported found. Thanks to Jackoavfc for taking the effort to join TUK and make your. I had a nice little jaunt over from Coventry today to pay a visit.

Is this what you are looking for dad?

Hi All, pleased that I managed to help clear this one up for you. Whilst we were waiting for our house to be built I researched online the history of Lowans Hill Farm and the ROC post on the top of the hill when I came across this forum. I remember reading the posts over a year ago that the TP was missing so when I stumbled upon it I had to let you know! Interesting hobby you have, I take my hat off to your dedication. Keep up the good work.

As per griefmiester, E exit off roundabout, 1st L onto Cookridge Cl, when it ends, continue on foot up grassy track, passing derelict farm buildings on R, toppled pillar in a few more metres on L in pasture. Great find!

Easy find even in dark

S2337 confirmed Moved & Toppled, lying on its side about 244m south west of summit. Thanks to previous logger. I was in Coventry over night so an easy bag this morning. Farm is now derelict and fenced off, pillar is outside, and very easy to approach from the path above the new houses. Spider missing, Flush Bracket good.

Hi All, I don't do this for a hobby but I live in the new development very close to the derelict Lowans Hill Farm. The trig point is still there but it is destroyed, currently lay on its side. If you walk from the highest point of the hill back towards the farm building you will see it. Not sure how far it now is from its original place but its certainly there on Lowans Hill. Hope that helps. I will try and get over there again at the weekend and get a photo for you.

GPS placed it 50m SSW from summit - were the satellites having a bad day? Nearby summit occupied by a concrete structure - wonder if it was there when trig built. Checked the 2 nearby copses but no sign of pillar. Not lying in the farmyard I suppose? Built 22/10/38, destroyed 02/72, fb S2337 (OS)

As earlier logs say,there doesnt seem an obvious reason for this to be gone,but there is no sign anywhere.

Like Father Ted, I couldn't understand why this pillar is missing so I went to Lowans Hill Farm but unfortunately the guy I spoke to hadn't been there long enough the remember the pillar. However he did say that there had been some exploratory work done near the farm for possible building or a possible land-fill site and so that's when it could have been removed. Anyway, it's definitely gone and not on my current Explorer map. No doubt somebody will tell me what the flush bracket number was....

I can not work out why this trig disappeared. It is not on the map and there was no sign of it on the grassy hill which is made up of sheep grazing fields. If it were arable farming I could understand.
