(88) A good drive up a steep hill, with some pretty decent views and sights. Parked up in a field entrance right next to the junction, and managed to find a gap in the hedge to explore this pillar. The FB faces towards the road, but you would never see it from there! Everything very overgrown, but still enough room to see and photograph the pillar. Though visiting this late on/early on in the year, would seem to be the best way. The field right next to it was full of grazing sheep.

Rather a steep hill to cycle up to get to this one. And because of that, I thought it might have some good views. But as its another Lincs Trig berried in a hedge, it has nothing of the sort. Still coming down the hill was great!

Geocaching in the area and spotted this just up the road on the map. Farmer working in adjacent field said it was ok to enter field so went in at the gate 100 yards up the road and walked back to the corner. Pillar in good condition but is slowly being swallowed by a large and bushy shrub.

Circular walk from Donington on Bain via Stenigot and Biscathorpe. I thought this would be an easy bag but I was wrong. Squeezed under hedge and over fence into field then over same fence to get to trig point. would have been much easier crossing gate about 100 metres to the north east. This trig point is slowly getting buried in thick undergrowth and may become impossible to reach in the future.

Didn't spot the trig on the map on the way to the WW2 radar station nearby. Lucky to find it, get there soon as thick hedges growing all round. It's a crawl through. Theres a strange concrete structure nearby, anyone any idea?

Who said this was an easy roadside trig? Since last report someone has put a very dense hedge around it. Got scratched to bits.

Joint visit with Carole. Not the easiest pillar to get to although can be seen through the hedge. After a failed crawl through a second attempt proved more successful. Frome the field side the climbing of a relatively new fence is now necessary. Everything in good order.

Hi, I'm Big Fish and I am the main Trigpointer and Geocacher from the Fishteers. I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers.

Hurrah, this was our 2nd visit to this trig, the last being in July 2006, this time we went straight to the gate and then it was a quick walk to the corner of the field where we saw the trig nestling under the trees.A lovely day for a spot of Trigpointing.

a lot of pain involved in getting to this, under the hedge, can still feel it now, even worse reading now that there is a gate.

I passed by whilst on a walk, so I looked through the hedge to check it was still there, but no crawl-through this time.

At the time of my visit there was a convenient (in relative terms!) hole though the hedge, possibly from the last person also no knowing about the gate. Fine drive to get here and a pleasant day for it. (although a frustrating morning of not finding other trigs)

A short distance further south on the lane is a small nature reserve, with an unusual outcrop of red chalk, called approriately Red Hill. Grid reference to 10 metres only.

TP0754 It is surprising that fine Christmas trees remain in January!
S2120 The 1 is leaning back so it is easy to misread as a 7.

Well protected by some vicious thorn bushes - still I made it through and have enough blood to record my find. Note flush bracket number is different to that recorded previously

I could see the bracket number but there was no way i was going to stand next to it. The pillar is on the opposite side of a thick hawthorn hedge and through head hieght nettles.
