It was a cold, misty morning and I was wearing boat shoes, having made a spur of the moment decision to bag some of Nottingham's trigs. I got as far as the Sisley Avenue access point and reason took over. I enjoy this game but I wasn't going to let a cold lump of concrete covered in ivy with no view overcome my desire for warm, dry feet. Not this trig, not this time.

Very well buried in the hedge even this time of year. Hopped over the gate to the west then over a wooden fence and along the edge of the field. Crops just sprouting so not sure whats in the field this year.

Sixth of 8 on a cycle ride W of Nottingham. Awkward to get to this one. Went to the end of the S cul-de-sac of Sisley Ave, left the bike in a back yard with permission, climbed over the barbed wire, walked N by the field edge which was full of oilseed, turned the corner and found the trig smothered in ivy. Is there an easier way? Should have asked at farm. I ripped the stuff off the front, shears are needed for the top. Every subsequent trigger-rip a bit of it off! Views to the N. Off to Stapleford Hill.

Park at the church and over the gate on the left as you exit the graveyard at the top of the hill. Follow the field boundary to trig location. She is one good looking girl wrapped up in all that ivy.

On south side of field next to, but not in, hedge bounding gardens of houses. Topped by large growth of ivy. Permission to visit given by friendly farmer at Hill Top Farm provided I kept to field edges as 'field had just been set', a very reasonable request. Not a foot touched any of the neat lines of new growth. Patches of melting hail on ground.

Barbed wire now reinforced and would be difficult to get through especially since its in full view of several houses. Walked down the drive to the right towards a playing field and found a small gap through the fence and wire. Field very wet and muddy wish Id have taken the advice of pjr and taken a different approach.

walked from Risley this my third trigpoint up through Sandiacre easy till i got to Sisley Ave,in the end over barbed wire fence.The field was planted with rape 5ft high and wet after morning rain.Pillar in hedge ivy strewn.Exited toward farm small meadow not planted with four fox cubs playing on it.A gate exits to drive of farm down this onto Ave.I would recommend this route to future trig pointers ,off to Toton sidings ,trousers wet through and yellow after yomp through rape field.

Plug intact, ivy growing on pillar. Approached from Sisley Avenue, then edge of field behind houses. Almost a sunny morning. Very suburban feel despite the open field.

two gaps in the housing give potential access but barbed wire is dominant. the one to the SE though has a single cut strand that allows a naughty walk around the edge of the field to the trig.

So,it's the end of term at Lincoln so off to pick up offspring + kitchen sink and the chance to grab a few more of the Nottingham trigs. This one is on the edge of a field by Sisley Avenue. The cereal crops are now starting to appear but it is still possible to access the pillar, which is all intact with original plug, with slightly indented letters. The NW sighthole is open, the rest closed. Some traces of paint visible. Views NE over farmland but very gray and murky this morning.

Having read a few successful bags of this trig I decided to make a revisit but was disappointed to find I had missed the window of opportunity as the field had been replanted and the trig remained inaccessible. At least this time I was it and was able to photograph it from the footpath using a zoom.

The oil seed rape has now been cut and the pillar is visible from the footpath. I found a bit of fence I could climb over directly opposite it and wandered over. It stands just in the field and not in the hedge, and is in good condition considering the near misses it must have had with agricultural equipment. Plug with indented lettering.

Marked as BM 80.65m on 1:10 000 map. 250 metres away from public footpath across a field of rape seed, probably hiding in a hedge. Reckon it would be just about where the field meets the boundary between the back gardens of 94 and 96 Sisley Avenue, but have not made enquiries.

Couldn't find it 28th Apr 2004  12:45  by Father Ted

FB Number: Not logged  Condition: Couldn't find it  Score: 1/10

I am going to have to put this down as my first failure as the trig probably exists but I could not get to it. I think it is probably nestling in a hedge the field at the back of number 90 or 92 Sisley Avenue. I asked in both properties but neither knew anything about a four foot concrete pillar which suggests it is not in their back gardens. The oil seed rape crop in the field was flowering and planted right up to the field boundary so accessing the field at this time of year was pretty impossible. One of the householders advised me to have a word with the farm which is apparently on Blake Road but there was not much point in me doing this at this time because even if permission had been granted access is not currently possible. A revisit when the crop has been harvested may be in order.
