---(2020-09-02, 14:58:00)--- SU 66885 87340 S4909 Today was Day 11 of my walk along the Ridgeway National Trail from Overton Hill to Ivinghoe Beacon, this time between Mongewell and Huntercombe. This is a lovely part of the Ridgeway and I enjoyed a pleasant walk. The 6km walk from the Thames is entirely uphill and it's easy to see why there's a trig here. Finding it today is a little challenging: from the Ridgeway I waded through a meadow, occasionally stumbling over ant hills and brambles buried in the long grass. Then I walked up and down the hedge until I eventually saw the trig, almost invisible in the hedge. It's hard to imagine that at one time there must have been a good view from this spot.

Parked at the car park of Holy Trinity Church, Nuffield, where tea, coffee, water, chocolate bars & cake were available inside the church for a donation. Also portaloo in church yard, which is always welcome during trig hunting! (The cleanest, nicest-smelling portaloo I've ever been in!) Entered field at public footpath opposite the church, then walked along the hedge ESE until we found the trig. The trig was in between the telegraph pole and The Old School House, it was completely covered in under / overgrowth & ivy. Spent a long time clearing it all & scraping the trig clean of moss & lichen. Once uncovered, trig was found to be in good condition, centre cap missing, centre tube filled with dirt & debris, some concrete missing from the top edges, front & left sightholes closed but plugs deteriorating, right sighthole open, could not check rear sighthole as it backs into the hedge. FB faces the field, how convenient! I left a 2p coin in the right sighthole for the next visitor to find.

No: s4909 was hidden within a hedge opposite the Old School House. I had to clamber over a farm gate to get into the field,and had some difficulty locating the trig. It was almost completely covered in lichen,ivy and other entangling growth, and once I'd done some weeding(for future visits here I'd suggest bringing a pair of secateurs) I was able to determine its number and that its plug had been removed. I imagine that in high summer this pillar would be wholly concealed within the hedge. Happy gardening!

Bagged while walking the Ridgeway - looked for it along the road first then backtracked when found it was actually in the field. Condition is hard to determine as it has so much ivy and growth all over it, even in November. Spot is very sheltered though and still loads of nettles surrounding it. No chance to see the spider or any face other than the one with the FB. Not a great spot. Special only because this is trig #300 for me!

In the north side of hedge, visible (just about) from the road. You could kneel right next to it and just about reach through to take a photo of the flush bracket. Indeed, that was what I was about to do, having located the FB on the north side and cleared away the ivy. However, a couple of 4x4s had driven past quite slowly wondering what I was doing, so I decided to call it quits and leave without recording the FB number.

Trigpoint is just visible from the road verge if you stick your head into the hedge. It can be reached from the otherside where it is overgrown with bushes and ivy, there is even a tree which has grown into the pillar and taken its shape! Reasonable views to the north but nothing else of note here. Plug missing.
