as dal mentions, [SU77/10] pillar reported destroyed 27.7.50; estimated approximate location. Earthworks hp a likely location, edge of property to SW another, but nothing found. Reminiscent of Hungry Hill which was found lying a little way downslope, this one too could be lying abandoned in wood or rhododendron, we can but hope

Long gone which is a shame as I live in the village of Grimsargh, Lancashire.

Pleasant woodland now covers this Iron Age hillfort. I took a wander through the trees to see if I could find a likely spot for the pillar to have been. The high point of the earthworks round the fort seems to be a likely place and that is the grid ref I have given, although there is no sign of any pillar remnants 64 years after it was destroyed! Further details and photos to follow...

Trig would have stood somewhere on the earthworks of what was an Iron Age hill fort. The Saxons were later impressed enough to name it after their god Woden aka Grim.

Listed as a trig in www.bench-marks.org.uk as S5546, with the comment 'pillar reported destroyed 27.7.50; estimated approximate location'. From the FB it would be built early summer 1949 - so it had a very short life. I guess it was replaced by the nearby Moneys Allotment. I visited the site on the off chance something had survived (as with nearby dead trig S5544 at Greenham). Noting the position as estimated, I strolled around the area but found nothing. Now wooded (& very pleasant), I can see this would be a sensible place for a trig in pre-wooded days.
