On our way back from a day rail trip to Brighton via Luton. Pillar buried in a hedge and can't be seen at all from the road this time of year so carefully negotiated the field boundary to the trig.

Happened to be passing nearby so stopped for a look. Buried in the boundary hedge.

Very easy access from field side - at this stage of the year, still reasonably clear of the hedge. S/holes all buried, centre open, SE corner chipped from hedge cutter, but will stand for a while yet. Immediate views flattish farmland, but Ivinghoe Beacon to the S.

Parked just west of trig near farm buildings. The trig point is on the north side of the hedge with the F.B facing west.

Wide grass verge for roadside parking nearby. Pillar is more easily accessed from field side. Hedgerow is growing round the pillar, pruned back some thorn and bramble. One of the top corners has a chunk of concrete missing; cap missing, no plug; 1 sight hole open. Farmland views N, W & E; S obscured by hedgerow.

Visiting friends in Milton Keynes and they brought me to this one by car as a surprise. So, no real idea how I got here. However, it is easy to spot from the roadside but accessed from field side. Apart from a piece missing from the top it is in reasonably good condition although the plug is missing and as a result the top is open to the elements.

Easy to locate currently - little foliage. Little to add to log that hasn't been noted already.

Not too difficult in winter with a GPS and ten figure grid reference. Getting pretty dark now so time to head home.

Cap missing In mid summer with heavy growth you need to be on the field side to find the trig ~ about 15 metres back from the top end of the hedge. Looks like visited more frequently than logged here given the walked down undergrowth. Clear sights to Ivinghoe and Brickhill

Parked next to an opening in the hedge & walked up the field side. Found the trig in the bushes. Not bad views of rolling fields.

This one was buried deep in the hedgerow. Itís in good condition apart from the missing centre plug. Youíll need to walk up beside the field to see it as itís totally obscured from the road. Views of open farmland are fairly unspectacular.

Very overgrown but you can still get access if you walk beside the field. Watch out for the nettles :)

Shown in green on OS maps, this pillar is intact, but hidden behind the hedge right by the road. Even passing by, without prior knowledge, you would never guess it was there, but it is.
