En route home from Nottingham and time for a little more trigging. This took some finding - invisible from the road due to hedge growth, but a faint triggers path marked the spot. Very limited views north of horses and rolling Leicestershire. Metal cap, shallow letters, E s/hole open, otherwise excellent condition.

Not one of the greatest this one, I found it, walked along looking for somewhere to get into the hedge and then lost it.

In hedge, visible from road through a gap. Squeezed though gap to the pillar avoiding getting tangled in brambles. The reward was the pillar surrounded with horse muck which has been carefully cleared from the jumping circuit. Pillar is very close to edge of ditch, with foundations slightly exposed

Parked in layby nearby. Thought about accessing it from the field side, but didn't want to climb over a padlocked gate, nor spook the horses. Managed to glimpse it through the (at present) thick hedgerow.

An easy spot in a hedge by a lane with FB facing outwards for once. Original plug with slightly indented letters. NE sighthole open, the others closed. A little white paint visible. Quite a lot of horsiculture around. Wide views over farmland but nothing special.

An easily accessible roadside trig on a quiet road. The trig forms part of the hedge and fence keeping the horses in but it looks like a bit of a weak point to me and an escape bid might be on the cards. I agree with the others that 3 seems a reasonable score for this one.

Base of pillar seems to be crumbling slightly but pillar itself is in good condition. Nice spot next to horse field, reasonable views

In the hedge, strangely enough, the fp was facing the road so no nead to slither about the deep ditch between the pillar and the road.
