(692) Busy road, but a field entrance directly opposite the pillar allows parking, of sorts. Hedge not totally claiming the pillar, but without a haircut, it'll not be long. Hard to get a clear shot of the top. All good, though. Pillar history: Built on the 24th of February 1951, at a cost of 14 14s 9d. Last maintained by the OS in February of 1988.

They don't get any easier than roadside ones and this is another good example. Pillar is now well and truely part of the hedge but it is still there and in good condition. Waved to passing police van whilst I was doing my visit. I wonder if my registration number was checked!

(199) Walked up and down the road, then up and down the field line and still didn't find it. Walked back to the car and just had one last broggle in the hedge, and there it was. Some serious roadside gardening uncovered a trig.

A good map will enable you to find this in the hedgerow (overgrown that it was in my case) - simply check out the field boundary to the east and you will find it across the road. This road seems as if it's in the middle of nowhere, so why all the traffic at this time of day?

Thanks to a late spring, it was still quite clear to see in the hedge on the east side of the lane. No particular views from here.

Sorry to disagree with Steptoes but this TP does exist exactly where it should be - BUT it is totally overgrown in a hedge and I would not have found it without the GPS taking me to it.
