Parked at Aldi in Batley town centre and made a walk of it. It's a fair climb up Soothill Lane to the summit of the road. Bearing in mind the comments below one has to assume that the pillar has been destroyed, so I made my mission to attain the road summit and return. It was dark, but I assume the views wouldn't be bad towards the Pennines. The masts near Meltham and both Emley Moor mast and Holme Moss transmitters were evident across the conurbation. Also in view, junction 27 and its retail park.

Please note! The trig has now been destroyed by the os due to people trespassing on private property and not having any respect for people and families to ask permission for enter the grounds of the land owner to visit the trig. Please bear in mind that sometimes trigs are on private property and it is no only illegal but how would you feel people wandering onto your property if you had young children! You wouldn't like it so please don't do it to others. You have found a hobby that you enjoy so please don't apoil your fun and enjoyment for the sake of 2 extra mins asking the owners if they mind the chances are they won't care less but out of respect please ask! Else more will be destroyed and your hobby will be no more!!!!......,

Please do not enter this property it is a private residence, CCTV is recorded 24 hours a day. Please knock on the door if you wish to visit. Please respect this! Update! Just to let you all know that due to a lot of people's inconsiderate behaviour this trig will be destroyed by os after Easter! This is a decision that has not been taken lightly but due to constant attendance of people trespassing and not having the respect to ask to view we asked for it to be removed however os advised it was destroyed as satalight mapping is a method currently used. Please understand some trigs are on private land with families it is respect, so please ask else more of this is going to happen.

The land where this point is located is on a private residence, the property was sold in Jan and the owners are requesting that for safety reasons you contact them prior to attending the trig. The contact details are Amanda Jones 07904025458.

Had a long look round from roads wondering where to go. Walked up drive to new row of houses and asked lads playing football. They showed me pillar further round back of houses tucked in corner of fences. Probably could be reached behind house called "Manor Farm" which is currently being renovated. Turned out to be 11th and last visit of day as I couldn't find the last intended pillar! UPDATE 14/7/2014 In view of Amanda's action. I certainly wouldn't have wandered indiscriminately around people's property. I needed some indication of where to ask. The lads playing outside were readily there to ask. Perhaps, I should have asked permission of an adult, but they did volunteer and take me to the pillar.

Log #48. (138m). Bagged while doing 3.6km walk from Manor Farm to Woodkirk Church via Leeds Country Way. Foul visibility day. Found access to be very easy. Accessed the rear through the field gate described by Wanderer, then came back around to go up the driveway and around the last house to access the front of the pillar by the garage. The developer appears to have given consideration to Trig Baggers, as the side of the garage is now blessed with a layer of tarmac, so people can walk right up to it. Its not in anyones garden.

Through field gate just east of the development, then along the fence line past the new houses (no climbing involved). This brings you right to the pillar, albeit on the field side of the fence shown in several photos. Google satellite view is pretty much up to date and will show you the bush the pillar is hiding under.

Access is now difficult due to conversion of farm buildings into dwellings. Best chance is to ask permission at Manor Farm itself - this is the house next to no. 215 and has a black wrought iron gate. Walk round the left hand side of house and through the back garden, to find well hidden trig on left hand side of new garage.

The trig is in the very furthest corner of this group of dwellings. Through the only road entrance, you will be in full view of the three residences. The third one is now occupied. Although each garden is not as such allocated, you would be walking right through their gardens to get round the side of this garage. So the trig is now in someone's back garden, yet right up against the garden's edge. Staying in the field will be your only hope (and it will get you a view of the flush bracket).

Accessible (at the moment) but not too visible. manor Farm is now in the final stages of conversion and the resulting two houses are up for sale. The pillar is still in the corner but not immediately visible as a garage is in the process of being built which encloses it even more. The pillar will eventually be in someones garden. Pillar in good condition with the flush bracket being trapped fence side. Original plug with indented lettering. Being so claustophobic there are no views other than garage, fence and house.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters, in nettly gap between garden sheds, just S of weedy paddock. Originally S4078: rebuilt 1948 with FB S4741 (bench-marks.org). Derelict barn has notice: D Hare Construction. Barn conversion pending, presumably.

The farm no longer exists, the only building left is the old derelict barn. It looks like somethings happening but I'm not sure what. There's a metal fenced route around the barn which leads to the adjacent house, cars were parked there and as this was a Sunday I'm thinking they're using it as a car park rather than park on the road. There was also a small JCB there too, for what reason who knows. Anyway, ignore this fenced route and follow it with it on your left, you'll reach a gate, climb and just head towards the sheds. In a few years we might not be able to see/touch it as the vegetation grows. There were nettles & I was in shorts but it's wasn't that bad today. Update!! As I passed on 1st September the old barn roof is being replaced so it must be being put to some use.

If I has a trig in my garden, it would be a centrepiece and painted each year, unlike this one in the bushges between sheds. Didn't get plaque number as I didn't want scratching to death

This one is pretty tricky even armed with information from previous logs. I did as ted suggests and was pleased to find the farm buildings more or less derelict. There were cars at the house but I went over into the field and approached from the North. Take note of Teasel's nettle warning if going in summer, I'm stung all over, just glad I had long pants on. Managed to get a couple of resonable photos having squeezed in between the shed and the fence. I've given it a high score just for being a tricky little devil.

I don't think its necessary to go into the back garden of Manor Farm to visit this one; instead go through the farmyard and its accessible from the field behind. Trig is in a gap between the garden sheds of the farmhouse and its next-door neighbour.

I'm not sure about this one. Looked for it a couple of times, but it's on private farm land. I'm going to try and phone the farmer to get access and settle it once and for all. The nmc found it, so maybe it is there.
