(882) Drove to the end of Little Drove. Just enough room to turn around and park up. Two curious and noisy dogs present at the house at the bottom. Pillar visible from the start of the embankment trail. All good. Bird poo lathered top. No passing train photo opportunity during my visit.

On a bit of a quick 275 mile round trip to pick up a wheelchair we got on eBay. I persuaded the Mrs to stop and let me bag this Trig by getting some pick your own strawberries, that we saw on the way. Went past "New York" to get to Trig. Access is easy as you can drive a van to the end of the road and then its a short walk along bank by canal. Though covered in bird poo it is in very good condition. Having dinner in Grantham before driving back. Got lost as A46 was shut. Successful day, all in all.

A nice easy pillar to reach - cul-de-sac road to West and short step along footpath.

I too drove to the end of Little Drove, although there is not much parking space but lots of noisy dogs. A good condition pillar on the south side of the South Forty Foot Drain with the railway on the other side. Unfortunately, my camera was not ready when a train went past.

A joint visit with Carole. It is possible to drive all the way to the north end of Little Drove from where the pillar is easily visible. It is then just a case of walking a short way east along the embankment footpath to reach it. Seems to be in good condition and has an original raised lettered plug. Water levels will need to rise quite a bit before this one disappears.

Interesting location of Trig with the canal and railway and road running alongside of it. Wanted a train to pass as the trainline looked quirky but no such luck today during our visit!

Walked in from the West. The highest (7m) of three trigs today!

You can't miss this one when passing on the train, as it's probably the highest thing for miles! Spotted it on the way to Skegness, and attempted to get a good photo on the way back, but the picture didn't quite come out at planned.

Cycled over from boat. View of glasshouses, Forty Foot Drain, Boston Stump and the sunset over a very flat west. Well, it's flat every way.

Trig in good condition, on top of a high bank, first one we have found with raised lettering on the plug. Nice veiws of miles of open countryside.

A very prominent trig point by the South Forty Foot Drain. A public footpath runs right past the trig point.
