After bribing the other half with an Ice-cream at the Wolds Wildlife Park Open Day she agreed to visit this Trig. It is actually very easy to just drive right up to it, so she got to touch her first ever Trig Point. So I rate it 7 out of 10 because of its disabled accessibility. As there are notices all over the place saying, "you are being watched", I didnt hunt round to see the other two sites of now missing, trigs.

(217) And after looking for Bardney East, it was time to search out Bardney West. My first extant Project Emily pillar, which has been uprooted and is standing upright. Surprising just how big these are once you can see the full height. FB number not readable, and the plug is missing.

Fifth trig on way back from visiting old uni mate for the weekend. Parked at N entrance to former RAF airfield (141 718) and spotted trig, as marked on this website's map, at the junction of two old runways. At a nearby bungalow and sheds were a couple of blokes (sheds had turkeys in them, bound for Tesco's, I was told) and asked for permission, which was readily given. Trig in surprisingly good condition despite being dug out of the ground and dumped somewhere else. All things considered, I gave it a high score. Huge mounds of baled hay piled everywhere, wondered why.

My first Project Emily pillar. Easy to find and access with the map from the Website.

This was really an attempt to find Bardney East, but I thought I ought to revisit Bardney West too. Bardney West still stands close to the intersection of runways 02/20 and 12/30 at the north end of the site.

A joint visit with Carole. Just as we arrived so did a shooting party which included the land owner. He had no problem with us visiting the pillar but asked that we wait a few minutes whilst grown men shot some of our feathered friends. Once the carnage was over we made our way to the pillar without any problem. Stood upright and its very large foundation. Flush bracket number not deducable and the spider is missing.

I called first at Moat Farm but got no reply so visited the site. Met the farmer (friendly) on whose land this pillar stands, but his farmhouse is in Bardney, not Moat Farm. The former airfield site is split across two farms it seems. He had no knowledge of the other pillar. I can't add anything more about the FB number. The standard design of pillar top, but the plug is missing. One open sight hole. The GR is for the found position.

Project Emily pillar. Uprooted and standing upright approx 25m E of expected location, with spider intact (no cap or plug); FB still present but the numbers (and the letters OS) have been ground off, leaving the letters BM and a vague impression of the FB no (S98xx, most likely S9872, S9870 or S9879). On disused airfield, at runway/taxiway junction, just before bungalow. No sign of its sister pillar Bardney East, which should be at TF 14291 71455. Pasture - no sign of pillar in expected location or lying around. Visited farm: an old farm hand who had been there 15 years and visited daily, was familiar with the W pillar but had never seen the E pillar so I fear it has gone, although it would be worth tracking down the farmer himself (at Moat Ho, NE of the site).

FB Numbers (and OS) ground off
