the footpath sign from the village is still well hidden but once found the path leads straight to the trig,plane landed in field when i was there, makes a change from keeping your eyes open for bulls and irate farmers.

Barbed wire blocking stile and trespass sign deters shortcut but a footpath right of way goes past the trig so no reason not to visit this one

Easily accessed via a public footpath off a lane. Original plug with slightly indented letters. No paint. E sighthole open, the others closed. Concrete base exposed about 4" all round as this is obviously a sheep-gathering spot! There were quite a few in the field at the time. Good all round views over rural Northamptonshire.

This trig point can be seen from the road and lies in the middle of a field. It can be reached by taking a public footpath from the south.

Slightly damaged 10th Feb 2004  12:30  by Father Ted

FB Number: S5041  Condition: Slightly damaged  Score: 4/10

The trig can be reached by footpath that leaves the road just west of Whiton village and leads behind the farm op onto the gentle hill. The trig itself is fine but the base is eroded probably due to sheltering sheep.

Very close to the road but on private farm land close to the farm, unable to get close enough to record the flush bracket number as the field was full of sheep and I had the dog with me and no lead.
