Right alongside the main A47, just seen through fencing on private land. Unable to access, parking difficult.

Parked at locked entrance to factory and walked along verge. Nettles everywhere. Unfortunately like a previous visitor I was wearing shorts.

Parked nearby and had to walk a short way to trig along this busy road. Got there safely and then through a verge of nettles(shorts on). Trig in good condition with no views.

First of the day on a joint bagging day with Carole. Parked beside the farm on the north-east side of the road. The pillar is basically in the hedge line on the south-west side of the road so had to play 'chicken' with a constant stream of traffic. Easily accessible from the verge just needs a single strand of barbed wire to be negotiated to actually reach it. Somewhat moss covered but still in good condition and retains an original indented lettered plug. Not the most inspiring of locations but what the heck it's there.

At side of A47 in trees with mesh fence surrounding storage compound.The road is highly dangerous,must move on as car is parked over the road at entrance to farm,the dear one in it with lorries thundering by.A beautiful area for walking just minutes away as we discovered today.

All said below, still in surprisingly excellent condition given the accessible location but not that visible as you would otherwise speed past

Grim location by busy A47 - and a foul wet morning. Parked in layby to W and walked back up to TP - set against perimeter fence of factory behind strand of barbed wire. Original plug and metalwork and in good condition.

Last one for the day and although the trig is in good condition the location was not the best. Parked in the disused factory entrance and carefully walked along the road before braving the nettles guarding the gap in the hedge.

parked in car park at Skeffington mill, on strip of land between two fences, not pretty but no access problems.

Between a hedge and fence. Tight squeeze between fence and trig to photograph the FB! Looks a bit sorry for itself.

No problem finding this one, as previous loggers have said. Pillar in good condition and plug intact. The plate is on the side away from the road. Since no-one else has submitted a photo I suppose I had better...
