Out geocaching and spotted this trigpoint on the OS map, so as we were passing it would be rude to ignore! Short walk up the bridlepath, through the trees, over the low wire fence and into the field to easily find the trig point which seemed in good condition. Plug in situ. Have photo but it seems that the site or my PC cannot load photos taken with my mobile, darn it. Will see if it is my PC problem and hopefully sort it out.

First log on this website and might as well start with the closest too home. Not difficult to find, I parked at the bend in the minor road called Stoke Hill. Can be walked from Stoke St Mary however. Trig in the hedge, if your on the bridleway you will probably miss it. Tractor Gone. Views only across the field at the gap in the tree's.

The pillar stands on the edge of a grass field next to a prickly gorse hedge on a small hill to the south east of Taunton. The field was entered over the gate from the bend in the minor road to the east. The trig has a metal cap with wide, raised lettering and FB S3969. The wooded slopes of the Blackdown Hills could be seen to the south but the views from the site are mostly masked by the nearby trees and hedges. The hazy conditions prevented a view further than the nearby fields from the bridleway on the other side of the hedge.

Hard to find, off gorgeous lane/footpath. If going from the bend in the road, it's in the field on the left. It can be seen, if in the field.

Approached along the bridleway from the lane then realised I hadn't reads the logs and had to retrace my steps and climb the gate into the adjacent field. Original plug with raised letters. N sighthole open, others closed or invisible. Traces of paint appear from beneath the ivy. In hedgerow behind an electric fence on edge of pasture field. Moderate E views.

Tractor's still there. Boggy approach after a night's heavy rainfall. Approached from the village of Stoke St Mary by the church - look out for the bridlepath squeezed off to the left of the gateposts before you go too far up the driveway (like I did)

PROW is not the summer solution in any way shape or form. Park in the gate way by it then hop over the other fence and walk up there are no gaps to get through from the right of way. Not much to see on arrival though

Don't go down the bridleway - climb over the brown gate (and I hope the creosote is a bit drier!) into the field with the rusty old tractor. TP is nestling into the hedge and there's not much to see. Didn't notice a plinth. Nearest pub is "The Nag's Head" at Ash Cross to the NE. Again, too early for a pint but I reckon there's scope for a variety of circular walks based fom there!

Nestling in the hedge!

It's the other side of the hedge to the south of the footpath, with the FB facing south. Plug with raised lettering.
