Parked at bend in road. Heavy equipment has been working in wood. Ground churned up, lots of lying water and cut down tree debris to negotiate.

Route as per Andjess. Parking not the easiest. Space couple of hundred yards along road at Shannoch farm entrance if you park carefully. Lot quicker and easier bag than I thought it would be. Pillar gorse free but bit dancing through gorse needed to get to it.

Gorse encroaching.

The actual trigpoint was beautiful, covered in thick moss but the spider intact and cleared of moss as was the FB. Being in the midst of a plantation detracts from the wider scenery.

Parked on the bend, over gate, and along a bit and then through one of the numerous holes in the fence. Then along firebreak to trig.

Found without too much difficulty; disconcertingly, there was much nearby gunfire the whole time, although I didn't meet any of the gunslingers: probably shooting at those so difficult to kill pheasants. Pillar now has a green coat of lichen but seems to be in overall good condition, complete with its original metal cap & indented lettering.

Easy access from forest edge to west. Clochandighter's recent gardening has been a great success.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: Half an hour of gorse bashing necessary for photography. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces NNW, ~340. Vented through sight hole on FB face. Somebody else collected all the money before my visit.

Well buried in fight.. A wet ride is the key to getting in to this one... Trees are flourishhing, as is the gorse. Again good condition.

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 29th April 1950 costing 73.2s.8d. Computed as tertiarty triangulation station NO02/T63 in 1951. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in November 1986. SITE VISIT: Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retained OS centre cap with stamped lettering. IIRC, surrounding woods had been cut down and I had to struggle through the downtakings.
