Located in field side of a hedgerow. Leaning, damaged, spider no longer set into concrete. Best access was to park in Neacroft to the NW, access the north side of the field via a stile from Harrow Road, and walk along the field margins. The stile was so overgrown that I only found it using the OS Map app and GPS.

This was a difficult one to find. The road its on is very busy. So i decided to get at it from the field side. There is a foot path on Harrow Road, to the west of the trig, that will get you into the field. I walked along the field edge to find it. But couldnt! Walking back I stared at a bramble patch and just saw some concrete. I had found it!. It took quite a lot of work to trim back the brambles to get to it. The bees or wasps didnt make it easier, either. It leaning and doesnt have much of a view.

Found a pullin on east side of road, walked a short way north and found a hole in the hedge, back south field side and pillar is being surrounded by the hedge. Crawling back out through the gap was headfirst into the lane which is very busy.

Must be one of the saddest trigs. Falling over and abandoned at the edge of a field - in a hedge I have often driven passed without knowing it was there - and little by way of views to recommend it.

Parking difficult on very busy narrow minor road - rat run betwen Bransgore and Christchurch. Parked 200m S, walked back on field side hedgerow - necessary to access pillar. Leaning badly, top badly damaged exposing ends of all 3 spider arms, it's in a sorry state. Cap missing, no plug; rear sight hole open. Carried out some gardening duties. Limited farmland views W.

although undoubtedly damaged and leaning probably because it's been moved, from the artistic point of view its very interesting and beautiful. gorgeous bits of ivy curving and snaking round it and pretty bits of foliage growing amongst the damaged spider. It's taken on a new life of very beautiful decay.

Still completely overgrown in hedge. Pulled foliage off top of pillar to inspect damage. Spider fully exposed but still firmly attached. So well hidden I did not realise how bad the lean was.

This poor old Trig has seen better days. Parked in layby just up the road on a bend in the road, nipped over the road and through the hedge to run along the edge of the field to bag this one. Top is very damaged and leaning, but stable enough to stand on top as always, although was a little unsteady under foot. Nothing of a view, its on the edge of a feild and next to hedgerow.

Quite an easy one in the end, but I did have to explore the wood on the opposite side of the road which has a great many 3ft tall stumps covered in ivy. Trig was leaning over

I have nothing to add to earlier comments, except to say that I think the TP is in its original position, within the limits of my old GPS reading to 10m only.

This one is leaning to starboard, and the spider has been heavily damaged. The plug is missing. I'm not sure that it has been moved 'though as it is exactly where I thought it should be.

Looks like this one may have been moved to the edge of the farmer's field, as it's at a bit of an angle and the spider has been heavily damaged. FB still fully intact though. Busy road junction!

No 4 trig for today. Agree with other logger. These roadside trigs are hard to spot sometimes and this one was definitely on the lean. The last of the group of four trigs in close proximity for no apparent reason.
