Along the railway path, then over a small paddock to drive Pillar Is on the left at fork in lane, good condition, glad it survives. Got "told off" climbing gate from paddock so apoplectic and left. No images and no GPS location :(

Visited the original site of the pillar, using DGPS to get the location to within 2 or 3 metres. Absolutely no trace of foundation. Pleasant views. Admittedly without permission, but farmer busy wrangling huge machine along muddy track nearby and didn't seem bothered by my presence.

Parked opposite private road and walked up. Plenty of room to park by trig but not advised . On walk back to car, was challenged and accused of being nuts - all very friendly and willing to chat, so glad I had not driven up.

So as not to annoy the locals, I took the alternative, and very pleasant, approach of walking along the former railway line, and looked down on the trig in its new position. Accessed from the bridge 400m to the SE, path up from NE side of bridge, NW side of road. Nice rivet SW side of bridge, NW side of road.

I tried to find it at its original site (as marked on recent OS map) a couple of years ago. Now having started using this website, I've spotted its discovery at its new location. No problem locating and cycling up private road to view. I would prefer it to be in situ, but its new use looks good and is preferable to total destruction.

Bagged sometime mid 2009, probably after bagging Bretford trig.

He he. Followed previous advice and drove up the snaking driveway, took a photo from the car and buggered off sharpish. No trout about today though. There are quite a few "private road" signs scattered about which look rather imposing but no signs of life fortunately. The trig doesn't half look stupid you know. The poor sod has a ridiculous B&B sign stuck on - how dare they!

A last minute decision left me reliant on the 50k mapping and a bike ride from the north along the green lane so like Fasgadh I can claim an unsuccesful search of its original home.

Well found Father Ted. We parked on the road and walked up the drive and under the railway bridge etc as we thought this the polite thing to do. I photographed Shane next to the pillar and noticed that the old lady from the B & B was in her front garden. What a miserable old trout she turned out to be - saying we should have asked permission before going up the 'private road' at all (I can't quite figure out how you'd do that). Anyway, I advise any future baggers just to visit the trig and not get into conversation with the natives - we certainly won't be staying there for B & B! Plug with indented lettering.

Thanks to Father Ted's brilliant observation I didn't need to walk the railway track - just drove straight up the farm drive! It looks really smart with the nameplate on it. It's all intact with the central plug [slightly indented letters]. All sightholes closed. Some reasonable views N/NE. I wish I could get one of these for my front drive!

Didn't see the actual stone but we didn't look very hard. Nice ride back to leamington down the dismantled railway and along the canal path.

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, sporting a B&B sign, by private drive nr house. Failed Oct03, this revisit following the trig's rediscovery. Was reported to be in its original position early 1990s, close to edge of field, easily visible

I found this one mainly though luck with a little intuition thrown in. Finding a parking spot proved a little tricky and I ended up pulling in on the minor road near Snowford bridge. I then took the path north west on top of the old railway line. Having read that fasgadh believed the trig was missing I kept my eyes peeled and then low and behold as I was passing the farmhouse on the left I spotted her. She has been moved from the hill down to Snowford Farm to act as a feature and signpost for the Coach House bed and breakfast. My GPS was giving her new location as SP 38720 66529.

Almost definitely missing, but who knows, I may not have looked in every gorse bush. Not many hiding places - missing presumed farmerised. On the 1:50K but not on the 1:25K map. Well I looked thoroughly, but unfortunately in "the right place". Heaven help us! Walking trigs.. Well spotted that man.
