Good farm vehicle track initially then along field boundaries to new location for this trig, before walking over to it's original locatation on a flattened barrow at top of Scotland Hill. Pillar and large concrete plinth in tact at field junction, if leaning a little. The lower bolt has been retained, embedded into a lump of concrete it sits on the plinth (worth an extra point). The original cap has been retained with raised lettering; rear sight hole is open. Distant views from SE clockwise to NW.

Quite a stroke of fortune that we ended up coming up by the track to the southeast otherwise we may well not have found the relocated pillar.

Trig has been uprooted and relocated to the SSE gate corner. Up track from SE + cattle pasture find trig on way to TUMP summit. It doesn't get much better than bagging Scotland Hill in Wales.

It has been uprooted and moved to a nearby gateway at SN 25037 45316. Approximately 200 yards to the SE of its original position. Standing upright on foundations with all metalwork intact. Also on the plinth is the chamber bolt. Apart from being moved the pillar itself is in excellent condition. Photo's to follow.

From NW. Field ploughed and deep in corn. Shape of tumuli could be made out (see photo) but trigpoint gone.
