The trig stands next to a prickly hedge in an empty field on the eastern edge of Cinderford in the Forest of Dean. It was reached from the north by means of rights of way from St Whites Road. The pillar has a metal cap with deep lettering and FB S6246. Somewhat hazy today the view to the east was over the eastern fringe of the forest to the River Severn and the faint outline of some low hills in the Vale of Berkeley. From the nearby track wooded ridges of the Forest of Dean and on the other side of the Wye Valley can be seen to the west.

Parked off the road at the cross roads at the top of the hill. THere is ch work going on here on what is soon to be a small housing development. Walked down the path Southish and managed to miss the trig but after having admired the views from further along, we realised we had gone a little to far. On walking back Northwards we were approaching from the right side of the hedge and the trig was clear. Me, Mum, Hadley 237m

There are views in the other direction.... back to the floor for the camera.

Walked all the way up from Rupsidge Halt with Jacob sat on my shoulders (much easier coming back down!). Hedgerow pillar,fairly overgrown but not too bad. Lovely views across the Forest to Wales in the west & to the Cotswolds in the east. Next,stopped at an obelisk opposite the Speech House.Erected in 1957 this marks the traditional centre of the Forest.

As stated by SIDANDBOB there is now no construction work and all fences/gates have posh (but useless) kissing gates.

I often drive by this trig on the way home from work. There are no closed paths or fences as in the previous logs. Good, if unremarkable views to all sides. Unbelievably the flush is on the side sticking out from the hedge, which makes a nice change.

It's still there. I didn't encounter any 'Construction site' notices approaching from the south, but the trig is behind a barbed-wire fence. 2nd of 2 UBVs today.

Legally inaccessible at the moment and possibly managra will be the list to site it. Trig appears to be within the area that will become the new local sport centre. All PROW access is curently closed and there was still activity behind the keep out notices. Good parking though at the closest road

Had a day off from work and took a day off from Geocaching to spend the day Trigpointing. There's construction work going on at the end of the lane and a sign said no pedestrians. I continued because of the right of way marked on the map. A fence has been erected right across the footpath but it was easy to jump over close to a gate on the field side.

We parked at the pub and walked to the farm along the metalled track. The trig is to the south side of the hedge and east of the track as Father T says. The FB faces south. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

In a hedge in a pastoral field. The Forest of Dean seems to go on forever looking in all directions except east. Easy access from Stockwell Green.

Outside Cinderford, past a traditional farm. Used as a scratching post, and I was soon spotted by one of the locals who brought her calf over for a scrounge. Good condition and intact, buried in a hedge. Very fine views over The Forest. On the way to a NGOC Saturday event at Bixslade. Parked next to a Bristol City fan.. This is where us Hereford types overlap with City and The Gas.
