Hidden from road by undergrowth but only 15 paces from it. Watertank on other side of road is a clue. Walked here from Grimsbury castle through delightful beech woodland. Possibly a revisit, but not logged that time.

Bagged as YSM589 Moneys Allotment. Yet another one I love the name of. Parked at the waterworks and then walked along the road to the pillar. In a nice wee wooden area but no allotments to be seen, or money for that matter!

Last trig point bag from three days trigging for me. I too parked in the water tower entrance and scurried up to the trig location. I spotted the trig from the road and walked through the ferns to the pillar for an easy bag.

Pleasantly sited in woodland but with no view due to trees though area round the trig is pretty clear. Shame about the close road and the unfriendly sign on the fencing on the opposite verge.

We parked in the woods car park on Slanting Hill to the NE of Fencewood House, then walked back down the road in the S direction. Opposite the entrance driveway to Heatherways, there was a convex mirror by the roadside. Went past the mirror by a few metres S, directly opposite the site entrance, then went into the woods. Very overgrown with ferns 4 - 5 feet high, but found the trig station soon after. I don't know how far away it was from the road, but others on here have said 14m. Because of the high ferns, we could not see this trig from the roadside, but we found it once we entered the woods. Original metal cap, the top of the trig station was covered with moss. I did a bit of trimming of twigs and branches with my secateurs to tidy up the area around the trig a bit.

As others say, visible from roadside, look straight into the woods just after the Cold Ash sign and it's less than 10yards away.

Strange place for a trig point, I assume the woodland is more recent!

Sad and lonely...

As others say, visible from roadside, look straight into the woods just after the Cold Ash sign. Looked a little more cheery today, although someone had decided to tie the three hooks together with string.

Another trig point that falls into the "sad" category. Forgotten and neglected in mature woodland, with a view extending to about 10 feet.
