Fourth of the 'Sapperton 4'. Final trig in this area, a pillar at last! Located on the Bathurst Estate but not too far from the road with good parking. Found, mostly buried in hedgerow, in good condition despite missing cap and no plug. Sight holes at front and side closed, rear was inaccessible without cutting back a lot more hedge than I had tools for. Virtually no views due to surrounding hedgerows.

I parked at on the road at its junction with Bishops Walk. Then walked north-west along the wide grass track to the pillar. It is backed up against a hedge but the flush bracket is on the track side. The pillar is in good condition although the original metal plug is missing making the top open to the elements.

30 meter or so beyond gas pipeline. Access along a wide path on Bathurst estate land which allows access between 0800 and 1700.

Nearest extant pillar to home, so had to come along and see it at some point! Situated on Bishop’s Walk on the Bathurst Estate, 150m from minor road and less than 20m from recent excavations - a lucky escape! FB faces SW onto broad path. Pillar missing plug but otherwise in good condition. As others have said, though, not the most interesting views from here! Position logged from GPS device accurate to ±5m.

Although pleasant enough, if I were a trig I would not be pleased to be assigned this post. Very flat. Very easy access (between 08:00 and 17:00).

The Bathurst Estate seem to be quite liberal about allowing access onto their extensive swathes of land. Bishop's Walk is accessible between 08.00 and 17.00 hours. No bikes, picnics or fires - seems fair enough. Fields to either side were planted with clover - a honey bees paradise. Plug missing.

An easy one. About 100 yards off a lane tucked in the right hand hedge of the Bishops Drive, a walk on the Bathurst Estate. The central plug is missing but otherwise it's OK and fortunately [for once] the flush bracket faced outwards! A lot of white paint left on it. A pleasant spot but no real views in any direction.
