Sixth and final TP of the day, and the fourth one in a hedgerow. Easy to find and get to at this time of year. Lovely view to the NW taking in Eildon, Black Hill and Smailholm. Looking forward to Black Hill in the near future.

Crops up to the edge of the field almost defeated me. However there is an unmapped track along the western field boundary from the south west which gives easy access to the end of the boundary the trig is in.Then there is fun with head high grass along the field margin!

Walked along the edge of a crop field then found ourselves on the wrong side of an electric fence when we reached the trig, d'oh!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

At last. After numerous visits the fields to the east of the pillar have finally been harvested and on the visit already being ploughed. Followed the field boundary from the Roxburgh road to the west (still with oat crop in place). OK views.

Somewhat overgrown but easily accessible as one of the fields between the trig and road had been harvested. One best left until after August.

So overgrown was this trig that walking along the fenceline you couldn't see it from 25m away! Got soaked again but compensated for by seeing a deer in the adjacent cornfield.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 15th May 1953 costing 17.11s.0d. In 1955, flush bracket S7434 was levelled for height. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T77 in the Jedburgh secondary block during 1957, and was last maintained by the OS in September 1986. On the edge of a ploughed field.
