Pillar resides at end of rear garden of #15 Wedmore Rd. Possible to view it over the fence, but this is becoming damaged by visitors, best to call at the house. The lady obligingly allowed me through her garage to access the trig, there was a willingness and she was very friendly, but sensed she may have been getting a little fed up with hosting a trig pillar - perhaps more so with the fence at back being damaged. Pillar retains original centre cap, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole open. No views, other than the garden.

Managed to get a side photo view over fence and GR within half a metre of trig. FB not viewable, nor cap on top which had gardening implement obscuring it. Nice lady at house No.15 just going out and "Could I come back at 4 o'clock?" Unfortunately, no.

Tried to get to see via cycle path behind the garden but undergrowth too thick and more too the point my legs too short...so asked at No. 15, new occupants only been in 3 weeks and told of the possibility of visits by previous owner, very nice lady and happy to show me through the house and into the garden. Trig in very good condition, has all its metal work.

Northumberland. I too had previously looked for this on the grassland and covered reservoir. It is still safe in the garden and you are basically alongside it when you look over the back fence, but you cannot see the flush bracket.

0 for view but 8 for private garden. Owner more than happy to show me into his garden. Chatty. Told me the university used to visit 1/2 times a year with students (I presume geography) and they would take bearings from trig. Stopped about 5 years ago. He asked the prof if he could remove trig but was advised against so this one nearly came to grief. He thought trig marked highest point in Newcastle and also it was built before reservoir and was originally open fields. I warned him others might be interested in visiting but he seemed unconcerned.

Its in the garden of No. 15 Tight up against the fence. Asked at house if I could visit it but they were going out. My unkempt, unshaven appearance may perhaps have influenced this. But they did say to call back another time so will do soon.

I searched for this pillar and could not find it. There is a large unfenced covered reservoir to the south of the public footpath which runs east/west behind the houses. It did not occur to me that it would be in somebody's garden on the north side of the path, away from the true summit. For six years, I had assumed that the trig had been lost to the covered cistern. The trig symbol still appears on the maps, so I consulted the OS about it in Dec'03 and was informed that it is extant in a back garden (Iain having now confirmed this, 6/01/2004). OS say it was built 6/07/47, and is fb No S4105. Presumably the trig was there long before these houses were built. As trig pillars get rarer, and if this pillar is kept in good order, S4105 should add value to the property whose garden it occupies in time to come, as a monument to 20th Century mapping.
