Parking and route as per Garth Fenton. FB faces WNW. Some serious gardening is required here.

Centre missing. Parked in a large lay by by the chicken factory, further up the road [towards the A46]a gap allows access into the field. the pillar is in the hedge on the far side of the field facing west. Too late for the damsons.

In a very special hedge - a damson hedge. In September fruits ready and make excellent jam. To 1lb fruit (simmer till soft in quarter pint water) add half pound ordinary white sugar, stir and gently, slowly bring to boil (sugar MUST be dissolved before it boils). Boil rapidly, stirring now and again to prevent burning. Whilst doing this you can fish out the numerous small stones. In about 10 mins will turn syrupy (and you should have got all the stones out by now). Poor into pre-prepared jars (fill with boiling water to sterilize, turning after a few mins to make sure top also sterilized). Next day, check set - if too firm, reheat and add some water, if too soft - boil an extra minute next time. Best jam you will ever have and half the sugar of the shop stuff. (recipe works for most fruits but for soft fruit - no water. Boiling time varies slightly and best learned by experience)

success at 3rd attempt - unable to access due to crops and unable to find previously. Buried in hedge just to West of where powerlines cross over.

Not the best view or the best access but the trig seems in good order.

In from the southwest, out to the east. Tried using Perry's 13 metres but made it more like 15. Perhaps he has longer strides.

One of my local trigs,easier to find than i anticipated.Parked by the old church ruins in Llanwarne,then a short walk past Turkey Tump & along ROW into the field. Pillar deep in hedge but easy to spot this time of year.Difficult to touch. Nice views to Orcop & Aconbury hills. 120m

It's very difficult to find now - Thank God for Saginanivalis' precise directions or we could have been looking for ages. It's behind a clump of elderberry. The field it is adjacent to is set aside - mainly docks and thistles, which were also hard going. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Bit of a trespass here and farmer muck spreading added a bit of hide and seek for a while! This pillar will be difficult to see in a short while due to hedge growth.

Got it on second attempt having failed to find it back in the summer. In overgrown hedge and probably only visible in winter. A dreary plod across a ploughed field from the lane.
