Situated on platform on banked road verge: was it built like this or needed by road improvements? At this time the surrounds are tidy - no brambles, just a few daffodils on grass.

At first sight this is a sorry-looking thing due to its overgrown state and general air of neglect. The are no views to be had. It IS in good condition though, is easy to access, and if you visit late Aug/early Sept, there are blackberries to be picked. Mmm, yummy.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Public. On plinth beside busy Bradley Fold Road. Brambles & nettles make access difficult. Even harder to get a decent photo.

Admittedly not the best trig but if you go up the road to the nearby geocache it is a lovely view. One that the trig point may have had once!
