3rd of 3 Trig Points visited today on my 20 mile cycle/walk outing during Covid-19 Lockdown. Lovely sunny day. Trig Point in the field just off the road. Watch out for the Bee Hive next to the Trig Point!

Nice position next to a field boundary wall. Was surrounded by tall willow herb so couldn't see it at first.

Parked at NJ 8114 2003, then easy 100 foot walk to the pillar. Had to do some gardening to see the pillar!
