It's always a shame to see a toppled and moved trig point. All the hassle of moving it using heavy equipment and it would have only taken an extra ten minutes to dig a new hole to relocate it near the footpath.

Had a pleasant walk to this one. Unfortunately the pillar is on its side (FB downwards) and looking in a very sad state. Still accessible on public footpaths at N52 10.254 W2 04.672. Limited views.

I was out looking for plumbs and thought I would see if i could find this moved Trig. I parked at Cowsden and hobbled (as my leg still isnt completely better after my slight falling off my bike back on the 14th. July.) It almost rained as well, but i seem to have missed the big load. The Trig is easy enough to find but is in a sad state. I thought it was very apt that on the 100th anniversary of the start of Passchendaele that this trig had also fallen.

I drove up the track and parked opposite the footpath. As reported by previous triggers, the pillar is off the track just past a pile of farm rubble and down by a gate. The spider is still present.

The second moved and recently re-discovered pillar of the day, having earlier been to Lowans Hill at Redditch. In between a late and much needed lunch stop at a café in Feckenham was very welcome. The lane from the West up to Lower Cowsden Farm is tarred, and after was today cyclable to the footpath. From the opposite way and into the field at the footpath was very muddy from machinery moving manure to a large pile. I had thought of bringing boots anticipating muddy conditions, but decided to risk doing without the weight and volume penalty on the bike. Just managed to pick a dryish and least muddy route to the pillar in my cycling shoes. Pillar easily found. Went on by Pershore and Evesham to stay at Stratford YHA and record my second 100 mile ride of the year.

As its been almost 12 years since I first logged this pillar it seemed a shame [as I was in the area] not to go and have a look at it now that it's been 'rediscovered'. The farmer at Lower Cowsden Farm confirmed that it was the ex-Peopleton pillar. To access the new location, park outside Lower Cowsden Farm [SO945528] and walk eastwards along a farm track. After about 400 metres you will come to another track on your right; this is a public footpath but the footpath sign is on the opposite side of the hedge to where you are standing, so you can't see it until you cross the hedgeline. Walk along the new track across the field for about 200 metres and, when you reach a hedgeline running across the track you will see a gate on your left and that's where the pillar is located. A sorry sight!

Lying in field gateway, with FB face down and inaccessible if present, but chip on one corner and holed brown resin cap seem to match previous descriptions so it's apparently the Peopleton pillar, carted 930m N from its original location, apparently into a different field. Revisited in passing; I previously saw it just a few metres from its original location. Discovered by Geograph user Philip Halling 28 November 2015

holed top plug
top bottom R corner is a little chipped
toppled trig
trig in gateway next to PRoW. FB face is on underside. would be a big effort to excavate

Second visit and after two phone calls and unfulfilled promises to call me back. Spoke to current house owner of ten years who told me the trig is gone and the previous owner, the farmer, has moved away. Conclude destroyed.

I would stick my neck out and say that this has definitely gone. The crop had been harvested and the hedges trimmed and there was absolutely no chance I missed it unless it had been moved far away. The presence of a brand new house nearby (next to the small wood) and lots of signs of recent "tidying" activity makes me convinced it's gone to trig heaven. A bit of a diappointment as this completed my set of visits to every pillar in Hereford and Worcester (shame on the site for not having Hereford as a seperate county) although there have been a couple I didn't find that were in fact there.

Its a long walk in to this one from the village to the south west along the footpaths and then field boundaries. It was therefore particularly dissapointing to confirms Glasyns thoughts that this appears to have gone. There is a farm yard full of machinary capable of moving it not too far away so it may be worth asking there. I drove up to the entrance afterwards but the gate was shut. Alternativly, check on eBay.

As Lathama says access is not too difficult to this trig if you follow field margins etc. I think it's been moved slightly from its original position, probably to improve the access between the fields. It is now stood up, leaning slightly, in the corner of two hedges. It has some kind of resin type top which has been pushed through.

This is my 200th different log and it's one that has eluded me for some time, being in the very middle of an agricultural no-mans-land. However, on this glorious day I plotted it's downfall in 'The Crown' at Peopleton and, when I finally got out there, it wasn't too difficult. The pillar itself is a bit sad; one top corner is damaged, the holes under the hooks have been filled in; there is a metal plug replacement which has badly corroded and it's leaning slightly and covered in lichen; the concrete base is now 2 feet proud of the soil. However, it's in the corner of three beautiful hedges covered in blossom; the fields are awash with larks and I disturbed a curlew on the way; a buzzard wheeled overhead and the wild flowers were lovely. Beautiful views westwards to Malvern; south to Bredon; east to Cotswolds; north to Clent and Lickey. If you love agricultural Worcestershire on a lovely day, this is a magical spot.
