Managed, with some effort, to access the exact GR for this trig, but could not find it. Access into SSE's Chippenham Power Plant compound is easy, then a breach in the security fence gives access out onto the railway embankment. Very steep and very overgrown, mainly with bramble, but with perseverance the Surface Block location can be gained. Ground very rough and much undergrowth. If the block exists it is well and truly buried/hidden.

The site of the trig is at the top of a railway cutting on the north eastern edge of Chippenham. The site could not be accessed. A footpath runs along the side of a field on top of the opposite edge of the cutting. From here there is a view over the town to Derry Hill in the south. Cherhill Down with its white horse and monument can be seen to the east. A large electricity sub station is on the other side of the cutting.
