Luckily I read the previous logs otherwise I would have never found the pillar. On the Bing map it's still in the original location, but on Trigpointinguk app it is in its present position. Bagged during an Antill "Hills & Vales" walk out of Salt. The farmer spotted me and said firmly "you're off the path." Once explaining we'd come to bag the Trig Point he softened and led us to the front door to meet his wife, sign the visitors' book and be shown to the pillar. The black Labrador is extremely friendly. Having advised Julie on autumn raspberry cultivation we took our leave to continue our walk. A very friendly encounter.

Saved by the farm owners and moved to their orchard adjacent to the farm house. Very welcoming. Signed visitors' book. It was only after reviewing previous logs that it appears as though the lower bolt might be on the concrete block shown in others photos which previously was in the hedge behind the pillar. see photos by Glaslyn and Keith Stevens

Met owner on the driveway. He was going out whilst I was going in. Permission and directions kindly given to visit this pillar. Nothing else to report other than to confirm that it is still there in the condition previously described.

Drove up to skeath house farm and was greeted by the friendly labrador :) Asked permission at the house and it was freely given by Julie, who showed me around the side of the house to an enclosed area of garden, but not before arming me with a notebook and pen! They've started a signature book for triggers - I was the second entry, so you'll need to knock and ask for permission if you want to get your name into this prodigious publication!

Very friendly farmer caught me climbing out of his garden (after a failed attempt to ask permission at the farm), so worth asking - will be granted.

Similar experience to THE CYCLIST. Met the farmers father as I was going down the track to the farm, he turned round and took me on a personal tour. He lived at the farm himself until his son took over. Just like Wilf I had about half an hour with him, he's a church warden and chairman of the parish council.

Followed Curryscrim's directions this time, having previously looked for it as shown on the OS 1 to 50,000 map. Having cycled down house access road was met by the owner's father driving out. A pleasant conversation and no objection to my being there.

Followed Trigger's instructions (thanks) but I asked at Skeath Farm. The very friendly farmer directed me round the back and over a gate to the trig and I obtained a photo of the flush bracket number. In conversation, he said he had not nicked it but had contacted the OS to see if they would part with it as it was something of an obstacle when farming. It has been on this site for at least ten years. This one completes all the pillars on map244.

2nd visit tracked this down, thanks to directions from previous logger. It has been nicked by the farmer and erected in his paddock, some 500m from original position. Looks OK, with FB now back in position (as far as I could see across his garden). New position is SJ 93870 27424. Private

OK chaps here's how to find it! It's in the garden/paddock of Skeath House Fm. Starting from the PH walk down the adjacent lane and over the stile at the end of the lane. Follow the track over the next stile and about 100m turn left over another stile. Follow the hedgerow on the right to the field gate at the corner of the Fm garden/paddock/orchard. Negotiate the gate and you'll find the pillar in a gap in the garden hedge on the left about 20m from the gate. You'll also see an FBM lying on the ground next to the pillar!

Like deego, I should have read the other logs first! I spent about half an hour fruitlessly scouring the hedges with no joy. Fortunately the fields were grass and not ploughed! Will come back again and add myself to the list of triggers at the farm!

Reconfirmation of the movement of the trig by misreading the new location message. Next time I'm providing support to the local fire brigade I'll take some more detailled mapping and try and locate its new resting place. Nice area though.

was SJ 9429 2789, now in Skeath Fm orchard. Logged GR is given by SDL+TJL who refound it. Was in way of field management; vgc, metal cap shallow letters, basal target placed separately beside trig. Lady was thinking of starting a list of triggers - I was 3rd in as many months! Visible from farm drive.

Patrolled the hedge, both sides and nothing visible other than a suspicious gap in the hedge. Took a way point and found it corresponded with the grid ref here (grid ref entered). Almost certainly a gonner. Recently reported on the trigonomy mailing list as having been dismantled and reerected in a nearby garden- Skeath Farm. Prospective visitors should ask to see it in its new location at the house. Suggest new condition category- relocated. I have upped the interest rating for this one as walking trig pillars are a novelty.
