If you're reading this before visiting the trig, please would you take some secateurs to cut away the hedge from the top of the pillar. It's buried so deep that the hedge cutting flail is taking the corner off the concrete. Quite hard to find but good location. Easy too!

Easy parking and quick hop over gate. Pillar embedded in hedge, bit sad looking but at least it has a great view to the Black M'tains. Can't believe i missed this one last time i was here, but it's bagged now.

As previously noted, not easy to spot from the road, but through the farm gate opposite the house and it's easily to spot from field side. Pillar is nestling well into a thick hedge of thorn and holly, which is growing over the top. Chunk missing from one of the top corners, probably a victim of the flailer; front sight hole open, others cannot easily be determined; original cap in place. White paint now mostly flaking off. 360deg views; Black Mountians and Skirrid Fawr to SW.

I come past this way quite often but decided to take this trig in today as I had a bit of time to spare. A really cold winters day today with frost, fog and rime all around - stunning! Access is straightfoward through the double gate opposite the cottage and then go left. Trig is in good condition snuggled in the hedge.

A frosty trig!

A roadside trig with pillar embedded in the hedge needed field access to view it properly. Everything in good order and still has an original plug. Uninspiring location.

Found on a circular walk from Ewyas Harold to Grosmont. It's in the hedge about 20 yards from the gate opposite the white cottage on the junction. Can only be seen from the field.

Enter field via gate opposite house. There's a bit of a chunk missing out of the top, otherwise good condition. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
