Revisit. Plug intact. Good condition for an urban trig; could do with a coat of paint although that would probably attract graffiti.

1/6 on afternoon trip to Derby to see da Vinci drawings. Worra trig. Still there on a patch of grass (a triangle...accidental or coincidental...) between two driveways of 23 and 25. Would have been views W over roofs if it wasn't for trees. Got quizzical looks from builders working at 23, but who cares. On to Skitteridge trig.

I love it when a trig survives a housing development and hasn't ended up in a back garden, and this cheeky pillar sits proud on a small roadside lawn between front drives. View is now residential.

In the front garden of 23 Cricklewood Road. Which is open and not surrounded by a fence or hedge, so very easy to photograph and 'hug' if necessary without intrusion. They donít come much easier than this.

Easy to locate and access, even though it is just on somebodies front garden, but at 10.40 on a Sunday morning there was no one about, not really sure I should have been about. It looked a bit strange but OK.

This is the fifth trig point I have found on my travels that is in someone's garden - lucky beggars! This one is in good condition. The original plug is there - slightly-indented letters. Traces of paint. N/S sightholes open, others closed. Concrete base is exposed up to 12" all round. No views except for the houses - but if it were me, I'd have painted it white with a black FB with gold numerals and have got a flower bed around it......

This is the stuff dreams are made of, your own TP in your front garden. I assume they built all the houses around it, or was it moved here. Does anyone know. Its in good condition too but no views other than houses.
