Had to park car at side of road. Thank goodness some kind person has cut back the hedge around the trig so it was easy to find.

Roadside location, parking not easy as narrow road with little verge. Parked 250m along the road (NE direction) and walked back. Found in the hedgerow. Condition looked ok as far as is possible to check it. The first of 11 trigs on our Wilts-Norfolk road trip.

Hedge is thinner than in previous years but I guess that might be the drought...

On narrow lane with FB facing road thankfully. Drove past it in the dark and TomTom alerted me. Very early so no traffic, was able to park alongside and photograph with the flash. Not a great location. Impossible to determine condition of anything other than the FB.

Buried in middle of hedge. Parked opposite livery yard and hopped over fence into field (very wet hay meadow) to see it from that side first - behind barbed wired fence with original cap just visible. FB is visible from road side - signs of path to it from verge. Hazy views west, 3 red kites above.

As the summer progresses this doesn't get any easier! Gauged position from the line of pylons on the 1:25k map, nearby there was a hole in the hedge. I went in, and looked along the hedge line, and found where I should go looking.

First tried to find this TP over a year ago for some reason failed miserably and then tried to forget about it even though we have driven past countless times since. Realising it really was still there we decided we aught to go and find it today. No problems this time, other than being stung on the bum. Trig in hedge, looks in fair condition.

This one was fun to find, not having the grid reference in my GPSr. I must have walked past it a few times without seeing it. It is literally in the hedge on the north-west side of the road. The plug with lightly indented lettering is still there, although I had to fight the hedge to get a look at it.

Dead right! Definitely in the middle of the hedge! Fortunately, the metal plate faces the road and is easily visible. Good views NW over Princes Risborough.

This one is in the middle of a hedge (and I do mean middle!!) along side a minor road about 2.1/2 kilometres south east of Princes Risborough. It's difficult to get at but it is complete and in good condition. The views to the west are good.
