Difficult to spot from the road even in November. Accessed the field from the gate to the north and negotiated the narrow field boundary to the pillar. New housing being built to the south.

This is actually in the field behind the hedge. Best way of accessing it is to go to the gate to the NE of the TP on the road and then walk back. This side of the hedge had been cut back using a flayer so surprised the TP isnt more damaged.

Another diversion from the Ridgeway, pausing to have a look at the Chinnor & Risborough Railway as I strolled through the village. The pillar is easily spotted at this time of the year through its weather-beaten hedge. Cap in place with indented lettering, and one sight-hole open.

Can't believe I was at the same pillar as previous loggers earlier this year; just 3 months later and now completely overgrown with no chance of a sighting from the road side. Parked 200m SE in small pull-in that was the entrance to Chinnor Garden Centre but now barred with large concrete blocks. Walked back along Thame Road passing through hedgerow on NE side of road at a convenient point that reminded me that there are a lot more trig-baggers out there than log on T:UK. Pillar found almost consumed by the hedgerow, cleared a far bit to free it up. Top edges and corners badly chipped, probably from hedge-cutting operations - maybe it should be down-graded to 'Damaged'. Original cap in place, indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open. Good views in an arc NW-N-E; other directions obscured by hedgerow.

Viewed from the road side. The hedge had no greenery, so was able to see most of the pillar, including the top.

A morning visit today in between work locations. Parked at the old garden centre as gates where open and asked a man working if was ok which he said it was. Soon located the gate and found my way to the pillar. Could only be seen from road on tip toes on way back once knew location.

Parked in gateway of seemingly disused farm buildings south of the pylons. Walked along road northwards beneath and passed the pylons and to a 5-bar field gate. Through gate, crop harvested, you can see the pillar as you turn R through the gate, bagged trig and away. Can't see the pillar from the road side. Top is well covered by vegetation.

As people have noted before, this one is crumbling from the top. With the farm gate so near it really is a dash-and-grab job. Park in the gate inlet not on the whizzy road itself...

Hedge location with easy acess from farm gate near by - fast road! Pillar slightly damaged at top edge.

A tractor pulled out of the gate as i approached so it was a quick dash in case he returned. Trig buried in undergrowth and hedge, will go along with previous condition report

No nursery southwest of the trig but there is one to the southeast. Settled for viewing this one over the hedge.

Parked in the nursery south west of trig. Pillar slightly proud of the hedge on the field side (north side of road). FB facing north. Plug with indented lettering.

Barbed wire all but gone so I managed a quick hop over the gate and up the field boundary to visit this one. I was amused by what I thought were lazy buzzards diving for some nearby road kill, but having read Lathamas pevious log I guess thay may even have been kites.

Unfortunately this trig could only be viewed from the wrong side of the hedge, the gate mentioned below was locked and a row of barbed wire installed. Never the less it was still visible.

A lot of misfortune has obviously befallen this pillar over the last 12 months! All the top corners have been knocked off, one of them quite badly, I imagine the result of hedge-trimming machines or other miscellaneous farmyard ephemera. Anyway, the plug is intact - slightly indented letters. N sighthole open, the others closed. No real traces of paint. Quite good views S towards the Chiltern escarpment. Saw one of the beautiful Chiltern red kites quartering a field just down the road from the pillar.

Located in a hedge along side the B4445 just to the north west of Chinnor. It's not visible from the road but there is a convenient gate into the field a few yards along the road. The pillar is complete and in good condition. The views are just farmland and nothing to write home about.

Pillar with remnant white covering on field side of pillar-height hedge along the B4445 near Chinnor. The fieldhad been recently mown.
