Parked almost opposite and walked across the field to the trigpoint which is well hidden within the vegetation - so much so I never saw the dedication plaque.

Walked across the cropfield from the road to the E. Trig is in hedgerow - although there's not much hedgerow, just small clumps of vegetation.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked at the field entrance next to the wood to the north-east. Then simply followed the wood and field edge round to the pillar. It is enclosed in the hedge but at this time of the year easily located on the south-eastern side of it and the ditch. Appears in good condition and still retains an original metal plug with indented lettering.

Snow and ice put paid paid to my original plans so had to settle for bagging just this one. Pulled off main road and walked up iced up lane to E. Bit wary, as car parked opposite TP and shotguns being fired nearby, so followed field boundary round from wood to N. TP in scrubby hedgeline in vgc with original plug underneath covering of snow. Wintery vista to E and S.

There is easy parking on the minor road. Pulled up behind another car. I was worried it was the farmer but I tihnk it was to do with a 4x4 event nearby. Took the field edge route. There are two clumps of daffs in flower next to the trig.

It's OSR and already in flower this year and no easy access lines. Gave up when the tractor line gave out at 150m
