I have begun to notice the addictive nature of trigging. For example, my days are often planned around it. This is a prime example. I jumped in the car, shot on out to Shapwick and bagged this little beauty. The directions given my previous visitors are bang on although the gap in the hedge is closing as the vegetation grows. Look for the little piece of timber with orange string around it. Indeed, a secluded spot. I am sure a little romantic picnic could be held here.

Travelling west along A39 towards Bridgwater pulled into a lay by just after the turning for Catcott on the right and before a bend to the left. At the easterly end of the lay by jump over metal gate and climb uphill into the next field. Head to the hedge on the right and follow to the top right corner where you will find a convenient hole in hedge. The TP can be seen in next field. Easy access through said hole. Views restricted by high mature hedgerows, however this is a secluded spot with lush green grass, and is a sun trap. A great place to sit and reflect. TP in good shape.

Looked close and easy to reach from OS map! However, the hedges and access posed some difficulty in practice. Got there in the end!

The pillar is sited in a grass field on one of the higher Polden Hills which it shares with a ROC monitoring post. It has FB S//3231 and a metal cap with shallow lettering and a slightly raised centre. The site can be reached through the hedges of either of the fields to the sides of the reservoir compound. The hedgerows of the field now shield most of the view the pillar once possessed; the top of the Mendips runs along the northern skyline and Glastonbury Tor can be seen to the east. From the other side of the hedges of the field there are extensive views in various directions over the Levels to Bridgwater, Brent Knoll and the Blackdown, Quantock and Mendip Hills.
