2 of 5 On way back to Sheffield after meet up with old school mates in Coventry. Approached trig from E, parked near entrance to Hillfield Farm and trig spotted in field (muddy) off FP. Found a pound at the lane gate on the way back, lucky me. Good views W to Coventry. On to Field Barn trig.

'Bagged' during a lovely few hours waiting for friends I'd chauffeured to the Rolling Stones' gig at Coventry. Nice stroll around the junctions of the Coventry and Oxford canals.

Parking in Farber Rd double yellow lines so parked on side road then cycle up concrete road. Then follow tractor track to trig, gate at bottom was not locked perhaps drive a short distance as parking on right.

Parking difficult as restricted due to nearby hospital. However, at SP38533 80757 there is a green gate and small area of rough ground large enough to park a car totally off road.

Cycled here from Derby but not to bag this inconsequential trig - rather to visit a friend in the University Hospital nearby. Imagine my surprise when I found I could also see the pillar from the ward window....

I spotted this was close to my meeting today, so made slight detour to visit. Easy access from the west as suggested, especially when some kind soul tells you the combination of the lock on the gate preventing vehicle access from the housing estate to the farm estate. Drove past three people on the way to the trig and none of them unduly concerned about me being there (one waved merrily and one chatted for a minute about the weather). Parked right next to the trig, which is set in middle of recently turned field, so very muddy and severe gale force winds today meant an all round foul 5 minutes out of the car. Returned the way I came and closed the gate behind me. Oh yes and the combination you need is 2557 - cant imagine it gets changed very often :)

Lots of redident only parking so burried car at end of road technically on bridleway. Easy walk but was noticed on the final stretch by a local who asked me what the trig actually was he always though it was medieval and linked to the monastry nearby :-)

This was the first of 7 T/Ps visited on a day out with Deego. We walked up to this one after doing the geocache in Coombe Abbey Country Park. A pleasant enough walk and an easily accessible cache. The crop isn't very high and you can reach the T/P by following the tractor tracks from the by-way. It's in good condition and all the metal work is in place. It's not significantly higher than the surrounding countryside so the views are average 'open countryside' views... good but not spectacular.

Again, just off the Centenery Way, this time with good views over the A46 and sounds of the M6 and M69 in harmony with it! All intact with the central plug with very raised lettering. Virtually no white paint visible. On the edge of the Coombe Abbey Country Park.

We parked the other side of the A46 near the new hospital and walked up. The trig is amongst crops but we followed tractor tracks to approach it. Plug with raised lettering.

About 50 meters off the concrete ath from Walsgarve to Coombe Abbey. Its difficult to park on the Walsgave estate due to severe parking restrictions - may be better to park at Coombe Abbey. Couln't get closer to the Trig Point as the wet field had recently been sowed. Someone with a steady hand and zoom lens on a windless day may get the flush bracket number but I couldn't!

Frustratingly close but unreachable due to crops!
