Last trig point visit of the day for me. I parked near the start of the drive and field entrance to the SW. Initally I waled due east along the footpath before realising I was on the wrong one and cut through to the driveway and soon found the correct path to make the short climb up to this trig. Nice early evening views.

FP not overgrown in February but wet underfoot. A rare find in this area - a bit of a hill

Passed on last day of H2S. Trig in rough grassy area with good view over London. Paths prior to this were pretty awful.

I parked next to the round gate house to the South West and then along overgrown footpath. Pillar is located in scrubby area and is in good condition, some intersting buildings near by, not sure if they are a gun implacement? looked military to me. Views over to the city of London and Canary Wharf, nice area.

Parked behind house SW of trig & walked up access road then through gap in trees. Trig in good condition but unusual screw top previously described had been replaced by stack of concrete stones covering an ants nest

New stonehenge type trig top
Could the ants have done it???

A retrospective log. Found in July during a Geocaching trip, but only today (14-10-2010) found trig pointing. This could be the start of something big! ;)

On a beautiful sunny morning this was a lovely spot. Straight forward walk up the footpath from the SW, lots of bird song including woodpeckers, a kestrel hovering, and fantastic views over the Lea valley to London. The unusual plug referred to below actually unscrewed allowing access to the void inside the TP, which was in good condition with lichen growth on SW side.

Perking to the SW then an easy walk up on a footpath. Nice views possible but not today as the rain started to come down again

The path up (from the Lea Valley Side) is a bit overgrown and there are 'Private' signs everywhere warning of 'biting dogs' despite it being a public footpath!!

vgc, unusual steel cap with 4 raised segments (just visible on Chrisnmaria's photo - excellent!). I noted at the time that it could be on the Meridian in common with Pole Hill, don't recall why at time of log (Mar05)
