Well used unofficial path from Southernmost Thor site to middle site. Keep left of concrete walls and follow field edge as it heads NW. You will arrive at a deep concrete pit which contains the pillar remains. Now completed a visit to all the Project Emily pillars that have been found.

Great find, thanks to the people before for the brilliant instructions. First Project Emily trigs we have ever seen and we get two together. Details are as previous logs. Amazing how much of the Thor implacements are still there. I had thought they were all destroyed years ago.

Moved & Toppled - Agreed! Great Find - I parked at the end of the bridleway to the South then up an over field (through tractor ruts) to concrete wasteland - pillar lying on its side in drain thing, still at least it is still around, intersting area lots of history.

Access via crop tramlines. Path still links N and S sites. The pit had water in it (after the recent heavy rain) - so I did not access the FB.

Revisited after Paul Bellamys find. Lying in shallow nettly concrete tank. Spider gone; FB is face down and still intact: note that the O S B letters on the FB have been defaced, perhaps reflecting that the trig was not built for normal purposes. 65m NE of its original location (SP 77224 77926). Although in an arable field the Thor site is apparently visited regularly by military enthusiasts and birdwatchers. Access via the crop tramlines was straightforward and a short path linked the North and South sites. Some locals I met said the museum is worth a look (N of airfield, shown on OS map).

Moved and toppled pillar, dumped on its side in a former water tank at SP7730077969. No Flush Bracket or socket for one visible, top damaged and spider missing.

Harrington North - Project Emily Site #17, SP 77224 77926 according to OS records: two trigs built in association with the Thor missile installation. Several large and quite well preserved Project Thor missile base related mass concrete structures are nearby but the runways have been broken up with the exception of a concrete road / taxiway which the N-S bridleway follows. Could see no sign of either North or South trigs; FB numbers apparently unknown.
