All intact. No FB or slit for one. At edge of putting practice area behind golf club clubhouse. Police cruised past again.

Feltwell North is tall pillar in the distance also a survey marker?

Walked past the club house to this one. No-one about to ask. Unusual that it doesn't appear on any maps.

Found as YOSM 360. Drove up to Club House and asked permission as the TP is on a small putting green. They readily agreed and I took photos with jets flying overhead. No FB.

Permission kindly given at clubhouse. Pillar in good condition and obviously looked after. Unusually no FB on this one and first time I have seen that. Limited views of golf course and RAF Feltwell.

In the area for a family break at Center Parcs, geoson and I decided to pop out early to watch the American jets taking off at Lakenheath. Picked up a few geocaches and this trig while we were at it! Also logged as YOSM360.

First one we've come across with no flush bracket. Asked the 'merry' steward in the 19th hole for permission to visit trig even though it's visible from the car park.

The second, and by far the more pleasant, of my two trig-point locations today. This ‘Project Emily’ pillar is situated at the edge of a golf course, close to the club house and right next to a very active Feltwell Air Base. (Lots of armed guards about. Full camo dawn raid not a good idea!!) I pulled into the members car park and had a couple of practise swings with my Leki Pole. I figured that wouldn’t fool any of the numerous golfer about this afternoon (Doesn’t anyone work any more?) so I walked into the clubhouse and asked the club secretary for permission to go and take some photos. Very nice man… Permission granted. This pillar has no Flush Bracket and never did have but all the other metalwork is in place. The centre plug is of the shallow indented variety. Close by is a ‘Theodolite Pillar’. Not sure of it’s function but it’s impressive. No real views to speak of. Just golf course and a high security fence around the air base.

Nice easy find. I know the area so knew exactly where this would be. A nice short walk to this one, I would advise against sneaking around here in the dark as the American Police might look dimly on people near the base with a camera. Logged as a YOSM.

A Project Emily pillar, in pride of place in front of the Golf Clubhouse! As with Mepal South, surprising it hasnt already been reported in trigging circles. Built without FB (as expected from Rod Sladens research) but surprisingly it has a standard deep-lettered OS metal cap (Emilys were built by MoD not OS and all caps found to date have been unlettered). I arrived at dusk and in a hurry, forgot to get a GPS reading but it was pretty much as expected, approx 20m W of clubhouse. Turning in from the main road, ignore the high-security MoD gates to the R and drive straight ahead to the golf club car park. Another 20m W is a tall pillar/column which I am told is a Theodolite Pillar: there is another close to where the sister pillar Feltwell South ought to be. The latter trig appears to have gone: certainly not at recorded location TL 71549 89091 which is in arable field, 20m outside the golf course chainlink fence. Feltwell South was S9584 according to Rod Sladens research. Theodolite Pillar info c/o elsworth: 13ft tall pillars capped with mounting plate for theodolite; light metal framework for operators to stand on; brass studs set in ground at compass points around pillars; brick theodolite housing and pillar at <tail end> of each emplacement; four other random pillars marked on Driffield plan, in and outside compound, though one looks very close to Driffield E pillar
