Didn't fancy trespassing so just got as near as I could from the other side of the fence.

Trig point is in a garden but I sneaked up from the 'blind side' and got as close as possible without disturbing the occupiers of the house then back in seconds.

Wandered up a track through the trees to this one and then over a fence, presumably into someone's (large) garden. A quick photo and away. Not much to be seen from here.

Parked at the junction and followed the tractor trail up the field. Trig is fenced off and in someone's garden. There was someone about, so didn't risk going right up to the trig.

Interesting that this is in someone's garden. I didn't ask for permission to view but stayed outside of the fence and admired from afar.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS readings. HISTORY: Pillar completed 23rd October 1952 costing 15.6s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NJ45/T43 in 1953. Levelled for height also in 1953. Last maintained by the OS in May 1987. SITE VISIT: Approached from northwest. Parked to northeast of junction of roads at NJ240601, NW side of side road. Walked up via communal drive to houses. Accessed with kind permission of owner of adjacent house which was built in year 2000. The woodland where the pillar stands now forms part of the garden. Column in good condition. Spider has replacement OS centre cap with raised large wide letters. Flush bracket faces due (magnetic) north 0. Vented through west sight hole. Any views long since lost to surrounding woodland but occasional glimpses of distance can be seen through the trees.

Didn't want to invade the house owners privacy so just photographed it from the road.

2 houses built here 4/5 years ago and the trig now is within the grounds of one of them. Knocked and no problem.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed 23rd October 1952 costing 15.6s.0d. In 1953 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NJ45/T43 in the elgin secondary block. THe flush bracket was levelled for height also in 1953. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1987. A Tuesday night stroll in the dark while in Elgin on business. This was long before any houses appeared in these woods.
