I did have plans to see if i could do more TP around Bath but my legs are telling me "no". So I bagged this one on the way to the Bristol to Bath Cycle way. this TP is on the top of a hillock in a park on the edge of Bath. It has been paint white and has quite a lot of "tagging" on it by kids, I expect. Nice views over Bath.

Flush Bracket No "S" in the front. First 4 digit number with out the S i have seen

Looking a bit rough. We were in the area looking for a Geocache and Mr S just had to climb the hill to look at the pillar he spotted.

Twilight visit whilst today's walk was drawing to a conclusion. Just the sort of pleasant suburban setting with nice views that I really like.

Not the most inspiring hill I have to say, nice views over to Bath, like others I parked in the housing estate to the north. Pillar bit rough Looking, but nothing to rate other than good condition.

Parked in garden centre car park W of trig, across the road. Gap in hedge allowed access to hill, otherwise not a good place to park. Short climb up to hill top. Trig in a sorry state hence classifying it 'slightly damaged'. Cap missing no plug, centre hole filled with rubbish; all sight holes open; covered in grafitti, white paint job looking very sad, also some additional blue spay paint been added - or is it an old coat of paint showing through?; all 4 loops missing. Definitely not a 'good'. Popular spot for locals, several of them on the hill, had to wait in line to get photos. Views to NE over Bath

A belated first trig of 2011. Quick climb up from road to SW. Flaking white paint over previous blue. Plug gone, with some rather choice grafitti. Would be a fine viewpoint over Bath on a good day; grey and raining on my visit.

Easy access from Mount Road in the Southdown suburb of Bath. The pillar is a bit battered and still covered in multi-coloured graffiti but offers reasonable views of the city centre.

i thought at first that it might be good to repaint the pillar white, but how many trigs are covered in graffiti?
