Owner kindly gave me permission to view the pillar - maybe relieved I was not a trick-or-treater? A thank you card sent on a few days later; they had allowed me to complete visiting every TP on the Cardiff & Newport 1: 50 000 (only taken 26 years).

Popped in on the way home just it see if there was anyone home. Unfortunately no there wasn't. Quite a lot of CCTV cameras about. So took a picture of the Trig from the drive. And left.

Was kinda reluctant to knock on door at 8am but sat in car doing bits and bobs, then debugged I'd better abandon and was about to leave when saw next site neighbour and asked about it. Half an hour went by, eventually thought 'nothing ventured nothing gained' so knocked on door and very friendly man about to go to work days please go though the back garden and take a look.

Asked for permission from the home owner of Tanglewood, readily given, very friendly owner and a wee dug in the garden too. Beautiful house and gardens.

My first visit to this one and over the moon house owner was in. I asked and gained permission to access rear gardens. What gardens they are!!! Took a few photos then waved goodbye the the lovely lady. Well worth a visit this one.

Had previously passed by but didn't pluck up courage to ask to view. Didn't get any reply to my ringing the bell. Looked to left of house and saw pillar so a quick cheeky visit across lawns.

Spoke to very nice couple at Naish Cottage, Cuckoo Lane. They said the trig point was in their neighbours' garden (to the south). Rang the neighbours' doorbell but they weren't in.

Most unusual. The lady at the house is clearly getting blasť about trig-baggers asking if they can wander into her back garden - she just casually says "Yes, it's through the gate at the side here, then through the big gate at the back, and just to the left of the pond". I tried not to tread on the emerging springtime flowers in the lawn...

This was my 6th visit. This time the owners were at home. Had a long chat about triangulation. I was told that they are quite happy to receive visits to their pillar. A big thank you to them. Interesting brick design in the concrete.

Rang the doorbell and was greeted by a friendly lady and golden labrador, shown around to the side gate and pointed down the garden. This garden is amazing with a great lawn, mature trees and large pond. FB number has a slight flaw to the 2 and 7 not unlike TP2774. the concrete texture of pillar has a brickwork pattern cast into the surface. I awarded an 8 my two assistants insist it is worth 10.

Unable to access due to being in the garden of a private residence. Knocked on the door but no-one in, didn't want to trespass into someone's garden so will re-visit in the future having read here that the owners are receptive to trig baggers. ***Revisited 4 Sep 2015, but alas still no-one at home, hopefully third time will pay for all! ***Revisited 14 Feb 2016 and yes, 3rd time paid for all. Still no-one at home (despite 2 cars on driveway) so decided I didn't want to do a Dusty and wandered round into the back garden to bag it. Original cap in place, indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open; BSM-style FB. Nice landscaped garden, pond, lawns, large coinfer etc. Pity I didn't get to meet the owners.

This trig is located in a private garden in a lovely spot near Wraxall. I have decided not to pursue entry into a private property but I have driven by thousands of time. I am happy with this. Check.

New occupants now in place - she let me into the garden, having been warned by the previous occupant, who left about a year ago, to expect some unusual visitors. Emerged back onto the driveway to be confronted by the husband just returning home, so had to go through all of the same explanation again. Previousl logs describe the location perfectly

The pillar is situated in a delightful private garden; the occupant of the house was kind enough to allow me access and we had a brief chat about why and when the pillars were built and how they were used. It has a metal cap with shallow letters and FB S//3274. The boundaries of the property prevent any view from the pillar but it is in a lovely setting close to a pond and amongst the trees and shrubs of the garden.

I trespass in fields quite happily but owners of gardens have a Right to Privacy so I left the householder alone other than to gaze over their garden fence. I parked at ST480730 at the start of Cadbury Camp Lane where a sign for CADBURY WATER CO says "BRIDAL WAY ONLY" (where do bridegrooms go ?)

Pulled up outside this lovely house, knocked on the door, and asked the lady who was on the phone has she a trig point at the bottom of her garden, Yes she said with great delight, please do have a look, go through the gate down the garden. Wow! what a garden, Trig kept in good condition (the lady said she polished the flush bracket) plug in tact. The lady was fascinated by the interest in trig point bagging. This must be the best kept trig I have seen, well worth a visit.

Found the house and knocked on the door [and that of the neighbour's] but neither were in. Pillar in full view from side gate so did a quick shifty down the garden to have a look. Am probably on CCTV now! Anyway, this is one of those with the 'raised S' on the FB. Original plug [slightly indented letters]. S sighthole open, others closed. In a lovely garden, and it was so hot today I could have jumped in the ornamental pool!

I join those whose best view was from the field outside the garden, accessed by hopping over a gate from the footpath on the west side. Condition assumed good.

TP7080 It's hard not to envy a garden like this!
