Parked in industrial estate next to gated entrance to ROW, headed up past all the horses, through another couple of gates to the trigpoint. Surrounded by coos! I could have driven all the way to the trig from the main road as the gate was wide open.

I'm not sure if I like taking photos in the middle of a herd of cows! I think the views would be good if it hadn't been hazy. Took these shortly after seeing the Vulcan display at Gaydon. Disappointed with accuracy of GPS, especially since it was laid on the pillar when I took the shot!

I visited this one in its guise as YSM540. Fine views here today, thankfully unencumbered by the cows that are evidently kept in this field from time to time. Pillar is in good condition, with the plug in place. Views in all directions, with the added bonus of a windmill to look at to the NNE. nifta [#10]

Found as a YOSM during a caching event ,and backlogging . After a very interesting walk up from the village , and a look at a motte and bailey castle on the way as well as checking out the nearby earthcache , I knew without any doubt where the trig point was : at the centre of the commotion which involved a couple of dozen cattle and some other Mega attending cachers ! Out of the entire field , the cattle had to choose to stand around the trig . It's not as if it casts much shade , perhaps it is handy for scratching itches ? ! By the time I got to the trig point the other cachers had gone , but not the cattle , who shifted aside to let me through quite placidly (which makes a nice change from being harassed by bullocks !) , but they were not going to leave their spot , and stood around studying my strange behaviour as I photographed the pillar & took a reading of the co-ords , then closed ranks behind me , ready to defend their trig from the next visitors

Aware it was 'somewhere' in the vicinity. Driving past today, looked in the direction and thought "There's a trig over there..." and with no leaves on the trees and hedges, there it was, silhouetted against the skyline. Just had to stop and bag it! Sheep must like running around the base, as the ground is lower than it appeares in previous photos. Brilliant views towards Edgehill.
