Missed the parking spot on the way past so a quick turn around was required. A trig in a field next to trees. Nothing to get excited about here but at least it's a YSM

Parked in the layby and couldn't see the trig from the roadside or from the gate, which was covered in nettles. I had shorts on, but managed to beat a path through the nettles and jumped the gate. Trig is in the hedgerow with very average views.

Almost a roadside trig but not quite. Parked in gateway and hopped over the gate and pillar can then be seen in corner of field up against some woodland. Everything in good order and still has an original plug. Views restricted by hedge and wood.

A roadside trigpoint but on the field side of the hedge. Easy parking and access through (or over) the gate just to the south. The pillar is in very good condition with all its metalwork in place. The view to the east is arable farmland and not very exciting.

On the very edge of a winter cereal field with crops growing well! About 20 yards from the road. Also, not too deeply incised into the hedge with was a real bonus. It's all intact with the original plug with slightly indented letters. North sighthole open, the others closed. No paint visible but a lot of lichen on the W face especially. Good agricultural views in the east semicircle but those to the west blocked by the hedge.
