Accessed up track by Scout Hut. You can actually drive up to what seems to be an old park with the rubberised surfaces being all that remains. Sadly now just evidence of drinking; an impromptu fire; a forlorn hut and a gap broken into the newish metal fencing that actually contains the trig which has a surprisingly fine view to the east. So much more could be made of this spot.

On way back from visiting uni mate, should have been the fourth trig but couldn't find the other three...should have researched . Parked at N end of Sandsfield Lane, walked up access track (E) to open land, saw gap in fence and trig in the field. Strange place: horses running 'loose', dumped stolen (?) white van, why the railings? Good views of Gainsborough.

(233) Parked up down Sandsfield Lane, and walked the rather steep lane to the top. As others have found, a fallen tree has rather handily squished the fence enough to allow access. Asphalt cap. Good views across the Trent.

go along road immediately to the west accessed from south end. 30m from north end turn steeply up east on narrow hill to parking area at top. head towards fence track right then left along west side in woodland where you'll find handy fallen oak that has crushed the fence and created an access point immediately below the trig.

A joint visit with Carole. We parked on one of the streets to the west and followed a track steeply uphill passed the scout hut. managed to find a way through the fence to get to the pillar. Seemed to be in good condition but light failing rapidly.

Very pleased to find a way in, hence 8. However, the gap is not as big or obvious as the one Barnsley Skip has photographed!

The school has been demolished, but the security fencing remains. I didn't spot any gaps. Followed good footpath between dual carraigeway and fence onto wider grassed area and pillar is clearly in view.

Parked in car park near kids play area up the hill from Sandsfield Lane passing the 14th Gainsborough Scout hut on left. Lucky there a handy Gap in fence allowing access to trig hope this is not the work of a fellow trigger? Trig in good condition with views of power station and Kerry storage tower.

vgc, asphalt plug, pleasant view W across Gainsboro & Trent Valley. 3rd time lucky: arrived just after 6pm Mon eve, gates open, caretaker said OK to visit. Also got Whites Wood & Lea Wood Farm - finally tidying up this troublesome little area.

The school was still closed for the Christmas holiday and all gates were firmly locked, so I had to be content with a distant view from the road.

I was lucky to hit the school on parents evening so access was easy. The school lies to the east of the trig. There appears to be a public playgound to the north, so our of school hours you can probably see the trig from there.

On the playing fields of a large comprehensive school which are protected by fences, security cameras etc. Like Fort Knox. Asked permission in Reception and managed to scoot across the fields to the pillar before the hoardes descended for lunch break. All intact, with original plug [slightly indented letters.] Some white paint visible. Considering the location the pillar is in remarkably good nick!

On school playing fields, creche and youth club active today so access was graciously given by the 'caretaker', he who has authority. Nodding Donkey active near-bye.

In grounds of school who have had a fence installed by the same people who do reservoirs it looks like. Will return when school open but out of school hours.
