Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Easy bag at side of road, cant miss it! Was greeted by two very polite 15 year old boys on bicycles who knew exactly what the trig was and what they were used for. They said they had visited quite a few of these things locally but had no knowledge of this website. So who knows, maybe we will get a couple of new members signing up.

On the west side of the road, with the flush bracket facing the road. There's a reasonable view to the northwest. Plug missing.

A very easy one, this. Right on the side of a lane crossing a small common. The central plug is missing but otherwise it's fine!. Some reasonable views north and west.
