All intact lying on its side in hedge row. The location of bottom bolt visible in its original wooden casing.

A bit of a bonus Trig. The A4176 was closed so went up road that goes past Golf course and left bike by gate and walked along FP. Trig has been moved to hedge line. Rather a sad Trig. The farmer could have kept it upright.

Parked at start of prow to NW. When the footpath headed SE across the field I kept going S to the hedge line where the recumbent trig resides.

What a sorry sight. Still in good condition though. Searched in the field for a while before spotting it in the hedge prostrate. Parked on the corner where the footpaths cross the road. Got to the track and ignored the 'private' signs. Really nice high footpath with good views.

moved, toppled, desecrated.. There seems more pillars toppled in these parts than West Shropshire..maybe just a coincidence.. I'd hope the local community maybe rescue ol' 1882 & perhaps find him a spot to see out his days in a more dignified fashion. Farmer John clearly doesnt want folk wandering his hedgerows. Thing is, If it was resited would we still want to visit its original grid ref?

The cheek of it As mentioned previously. some disrespect has been shown. I understand its in the middle of your field but come on, Just replant it somewhere. Maybe by the right of way?
Fb as proof if it were needed Maybe the local village will adopt it some day..
Do you see? Lying recumbent on the horizon our pillar has had better days. The sign can be rotated so you havent seen it...

No signs or indeed sign of anybody as I approach from the village and around the fields from the north. Only had to step maybe 40 yards across the crop. Lovely day for it...

No rights of way close by, and a sign to suggest the landowner would prefer to keep walkers away. Sometimes you just have to feign short-sightedness.

Picking off a few pillars I've missed. Left bike by telephone box in village and set off along adjacent public footpath. At far end of rape crop, turned right off path and followed hedge to pillar. In corner of following field. Not sure if it is wheat or poppies the farmer is growing! Used the usual tractor tracks for the last few yards.

Still white painted and very prominant from the nearby road, this pillar was in the middle of a stubble field.
