(1442) Parking on Wighay Road. Short walk back to entrance to Wighay Farm. Area becoming overgrown, but pillar soon spotted. Ivy covered on the RHS, but pillar in fine condition. A nice and easy one to bag.

Good condition pillar tucked into a small wood at the entrance to Wighay Farm. About 20m away from busy roundabout but easy access. FB faces west-ish with no sightholes open. Cap present with sunken lettering.

Loved this. Secret ivy garden trig at the side of busy roundabout. You could drive past it twice a day for 50 years and not know it was there. Lovely.

In climbing over the fence I got some splinters in my hand, but after photographing the pillar I realised I need not have suffered for my hobby as I could have walked around the end of the fence a couple of metres away! Metalwork at the top is complete and the pillar is in good condition despite proximity to a built-up area.

Sunday morning so parked at the farm entrance on the roundabout. In small wooded area almost on the roundabout. Not really into traffic islands but the nearby island at the end of the Hucknall bypass contains a statue of the 'flying bedstead' developed at the nearby aerodrome (soon to be built over), an early attempt at vertical take-off and the forerunner to the Harrier jump-jet.

Easy to find next to a rounderbout. Look for the farm entrance sign and it's just to the right next to a fence.

Easily located just behind fence in trees close to roundabout. No view and not an attractive location though if you have time on your hands you are not too far from Newstead Abbey with its Byron connection. A decorative couple of ivy strands attached to this hidden trig.

done well to survive in this location. A sign on the adjacent track to the farm still displays a foot and mouth sign. Clearly thing change slowly around here.

Stroll round the local area with my brother who enjoys the search. Trig in good condition but behind a fence with no views. Quite easy to find if you look N. up the track up to Wighay Farm it's behind right hand side fence (smothered in vegetation) of the entrance.

As previous visitors note this is easy in autumn but maybe not in summer. I was parkedup thinking I was a mile or two away when an abmulance pulled out of the yad and I remembered comments about this trig being opposite the ambulance station so turned the engine off and found it!

easy in autumn with no leaves just to the right of the enrty to the counil depot that acts as the car park right on a roundabout. Looking too datrk for anything else now. Still leaves a nice run if I get another visit to UK Coal HQ

Very close to kick-off time and [having not read the previous logs] had a devil of a game to find this as it's very well hidden in a small copse. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. All sightholes closed. Traces of paint. Right by the roundabout but you can't see a thing. Anyway, just made it to the ground by 19.45 and we won 3-1. Whether this is a good omen for the season ahead.....who knows?

Hidding in an overgrown corner, near to a very uninteresting roundabout. Nothing to recommend it here at all...
