Parking a few meters away on lane/farm track (look out for pot holes) I looked for this a few years ago. today was easy as things have changed and the thick hedge is gone and the pillar sits about 4 feet clear. good condition got some ivy growing around it. quiet farmland area.

Gate way next to the resevior along side the hedge a 20yd walk, seems to be the place to dump rubbish!

It is possible to drive up the lane despite the "unsuitable for motors" sign to the gate close to the pillar. This is still quite visible thanks to trig-man's gardening efforts although the trig is partly sunken.

Found it 2nd attempt, was hiding in vegetation right next to where I was looking the first time. Cleared all ivy off so should be visible for all to see, for a bit until it grows back.

Must be there according to other logs, but couldn't see it for the vegetation. Did find an old concrete water trough in vegetation which is about where the trig should be. I'll go back in the Autumn when the leaves have fallen.

At this time of year, the hedge isn't too bad. FB clear, top clear, cap intact.

Drove up lane from Walcote end and parked a few feet away. Another year has seen the TP totally engulfed by the hedge and surrounding vegetation. Not sure about the general condition.

As Father Ted says, you can drive down the lane as far as the trig location. The pillar is embedded in the hedge and now is adjacent to two large sugar-beet heaps - the beet was being harvested today. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. No paint. All visible sightholes closed. Flat agricultural views to S and SE and E.

Looking to save driving time I pulled into the southern end of the track that father ted used and got the bike out first part was a field but then broken tarmac. Condition otherwise unchanged.

It is possible to drive down the track from the north as far as the trig point even though there is a sign saying unsuitable for motors. The building marked on the map is a covered reservoir. I used this trig to take a photo of my trigpointing geocache travel bug which I hope to let loose soon. The aim of the travel bug will be to a visit as many trig points as possible. Track its progress on the geocaching.com web site where I go by the name of Superted.

Allen bolt plug FB on S side. This TP is slowly being claimed by the hedge to the N. Evidence that the Ivy has already been on the S side. Didn't check N E or W sides due to this overgrowth. View to South.
