(237) The hedge is very overgrown, and is pretty much swallowing the Pillar. Best viewed from inside the field, and not the roadside. Couldn't really see the top too well, which is the location of the damage.

Revisit. Plug intact. End of spider exposed. Trig on field side of hedge; easy access. Everyone in Upton seemed to be eating chips.

Joint visit with Carole. Easy to find in day light not quite as easy in the darkness! Just inside a field with open gateway at road junction. Hard to spot the 'slightly damaged' condition but it was dark. Retains an original plug.

In hedgerow,visible from field side, other triggers have kept entrance in hedge open but otherwise very overgrown. Heavy growth of moss and ivy. All metalwork intact.

Another one in a Hawthorn hedge, had to clear the branches away to get the photograph. Lots of ivy growing up it but in not too bad condition with original plug. A pity we didnt bump into Rachel whilst there :)

Parked at the field entrance and walked up the side of the field. Covered in Ivy and lots of hawthorn we had to do a bit of gardening to take the photos (see trigbaggers photos)

Field side of hedge. Minor damage to top with spider-end exposed. Plug intact. The village might show in a 'best kept' competition but the trig wouldn't.

Passing on route to Harpswell Low Farm, so a repeat log to plug the gap in my pictures.

TP6670 It's funny how memory plays tricks. This is not how I remembered it.

On the edge of a field by a road junction on the edge of Upton village. All intact - plug has deeply indented letters. Some cracking/chipping to top surface. E sighthole open, the others not visible. No paint. I agree - not a very inspiring spot - but better that the last one!

I agree this is a dull spot. There is some damage to the front top edge. Sorry, there is no picture - my camera batteries died.
