On way to visit daughter and granddaughter (just over two weeks old!). As it was dark and school lights were on, I decided it was only right to ask permission. It was refused by the headmaster, no chance. There was a meeting on and the trig was frustratingly close I thought, near car park if you turn left down the side of the school, next to the chain link fence others have mentioned. Another day?

This one was a bit of a nightmare as pillar is in a field surrounded by a hawthorn bush and new security fence. You can also get close to it behind the fence if you enter the school grounds. I ended up climbing the fence and walking through the chest high thistles.

Bagged as YSM0699 Sish Lane. This one was a bit of a nightmare as pillar is in a field surrounded by a Hawthorn Bush and a 6ft high security fence, we did spot a very small gap you could have crawled through but you would have been scratched to pieces. You can also get close to it if you enter the school grounds. Mr U2 ended up climbing the fence and walking through the chest high thistles. I took the much easier approach into the school and managed to touch the trig through the fencing, however it looks as if the school could be closed at times as they did have gates which looked very secure, but fortunately open today. #13 day#4 - equal numbers to day#1 Total day#3 #12 Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

Pillar now behind fencing, which I assume is for new housing. I hope the pillar remains in place.

Large area to South of road cordoned off with wire security barriers, although only long grass can be seen. Followed around perimeter anti clockwise and the pillar has survived against this fencing. Just able to reach through to clear FB. I was too engrossed in my search, and was soon approached and informed I was on school land. I hadn't noticed the signs and hadn't passed through any gates to reach the adjoining car park.

Whilst logging pillar by leaning on pliable fencing, challenged by teacher (?). I was unaware that the land belonged to Larwood School - no obvious security in evedence (gates/ fencing etc). Eventually all ended happily with a handshake but he was understandable worried about a strange woman in the school grounds and prefers visitors out of school hours and with permission. Land bought by the council and will become residential housing. He hoped the trig would be preserved but expected it to end up in someone's back garden. Larwood school entrance is signed off Web Rise. The trig itself is fenced off and therefore technically outside school perimeter but only accessible at present from the school grounds. The fence is pliable and one can easily touch the trig and hover a GPS over the spider. FB visible but soon to be obscured by grass.

The school in Pharasee's photos has recently been demolished, I wonder if this trig may end up lost to developers?

It's interesting because it's in a school playing field. Its only just making the grade of "Good" condition now, and the top eyelet holes look as though they have been plugged badly with play-doh!... well I suppose it is a school after all.

Revisit for pics. Drove in, much the same as 6 years ago. A few minutes later, after several turnings, en route to the old town centre (in search of S085), I found myself driving along ... Sish Lane!

No problem with this one today as it was a Sunday managed to drive within 100Ft of it. I bet there aren't many schools that can claim they have a trig point in their playing field, not a bad location.

This T/P is located in the grounds of a school for disabled children in Stevenage. I wasnít sure I was going to get this one. There was a grounds man mowing the grass so I spoke to him and he very kindly showed me round the back of the school to the T/P. Itís in good condition with a resin plug. Views are what you would expect with the T/P being in enclosed school grounds.
