Walked up from busy A41, found trig sat in gap in hedge, nice view back to Aylesbury and the Chilterns where we walked earlier that day. Onwards to Quainton Hill trig!

The FB is against the wire fence line making it very difficult to get a good picture of it. Last one of the ten planned for the day. A good mornings work. Time for lunch I think.

Short walk from roadside along Midshires Way. Pillar VGC with original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; RHD side sight hole open. FB hard against stock fence on E side RoW, access into field necessary to photograph it. 360deg views, a little limited to SW.

Unusually for me a quick dash from the road on the way from visiting Waddesdon Manor to a party for friends' wedding anniversary. In hedge but cleared, although difficult to see FB.

Next to bridleway. FB faces into adjacent field and pillar is hard up against a wire fence making access to the FB tricky. Good views. Plug intact.

Pillar and FB Good views.

Another summer and another survivor. Still in vgc, situated next to wire fence on FB side so photos are tricky. Indented lettering and clean cap.

Located a few meters from the road against fence, hop over for FB image - nice enough views of surrounding farmland - Pillar good condition.

Quick bag at the end of a bitterly cold winters day. Easy access. TP had two frozen shoes on it when found. Attractive spot but views guessed at rather than seen - lost in freezing winter dusk.

Easy access. FB facing east, so you have to climb through the fence to get a photo of it (no problem). Nice views. Plug with indented lettering.

An easy-access pillar just off a lane and on the side of the Swans Way path. All intact - plug with slightly-indented letters. Traces of paint. All sightholes closed. Lovely views in all directions except W, over The Chilterns, surrounding farmland and Aylesbury. Buzzard and red kite circling around. Lovely spot!

Really nice views from the TP but unfortunately you can't easily view the flush bracket without sticking your head through the wire fence.

Did this one whilst on a hunt for Chess Cache No. 4 - White Rook. It's complete and in good condition. Views are good without being spectacular.

Unpainted pillar in long grass beside wire fence at edge of field. Short walk from picnic spot beside minor road, where a gooseberry bus was growing - fortunately nothing under this to expand the family further.
