First of the mega 4 day bagging trip. Easy track from Park Road up to golf course, trig quite hard to spot and surrounded in nettles, also seemed to be a dumping ground for the golf course clippings and general rubbish, so hugging the trig was out on this occasion.

Located in rough scrubby land between RoW at edge of golf course and the well-kept greens. Pillar found completely encased in bramble and ivy, with FB partially obscud by rising ground level. Cap missing, no plug; all sight holes below ground level; BSM-style FB. Good views S over River Avon.

Found on a caching walk around Shirehampton Park. Pillar is on rough overgrown ground to side of golf course. Bit discoloured and edges chipped. Some ivy starting to grow up it, flush bracket and top mount mildly corroded but still intact apart from hollow centre to top mount. Lovely views over park and Avon from this relatively secluded spot.

I parked in the golf course car park then along to this one - was a bit difficult to find as it hiding on the side of the hill and lost in the undergrowth - bit of digging required to see FB number and the top was covered in ivy - missing cap and plug - views over the avon gorge nearby.

Short walk across golf course. Only a few golfers about on a damp morning. On edge of Avon gorge with views both ways. Some excavation work required to get FB numbers.

Walked around the edge of the (National Trust!)golf course. In a patch of brambles but easily trodden down. Fb needs digging out again. Nice enough views over a meander in the Avon but somewhat spoiled by the noise of the portway ( and the golf course).

When found the pillar was buried in Ivy and Brambles. It took a while to drag the vegitation off and to dig down enough to see flush bracket.

I walked over to this trig from the West side of the golf course, and missed it on the first pass. It has still got a good view along the Avon, but the top cap is missing, the brambles are starting to surround it and the pillar is slowly getting buried deeper. The path has suffered from the plague of dog-walkers (dubious little bags of s**t everywhere), but will look nicer over the next few weeks as the bluebells are starting to come out.

The pillar is sited above a public footpath on the perimeter of a golf course; on very rough ground next to a tee. No nettles today. Ivy was growing on its south side; the FB, S/3376, on the north side was buried up to the arrow and it lacks a cap or plug. The pillar looks out over a bend in the River Avon to the south. Farmland extends from Chapel Pill to Ashton Hill to the south of the river. On the east bank are the suburbs of Bristol.

Nettles nearing the top of the pillar - shorts and sandals not the best choice of clothing. Golfers friendly but slightly bemused.

Pleasant views, over the old Roman settlement of Camp Abonae, and towards the Chapel Pill Farm TP... (Interesting fact: this is S3376, with the S above, but Chapel Pill has no 'S'.)

We parked to the north then walked into the golf course past the clubhouse and followed the perimeter round to thee trig. On the way back we just headed for the clubhouse, taking care not to disturb the golfers too much. Nice views of the Avon. Missing plug.
