Parked in a rough layby on the B3128, Clarken Coombe. Walked up footpath over the green to the 5th tee , trig found behind the bench and the green bin by the gorse bush, nice spot on a sunny day.

After visiting the auxiliary I went down the bank of the fifth tee to start looking for the moved pillar but it wasn't obvious so I had to use my phone to re-read previous visits to help me find it just in the bushes behind the tee. I should have assumed the minimum movement to get it out of the way. The pillar is much patched after the removal of the flush bracket and over the top too, perhaps after removal of the spider. One wonders why. After visiting the pillar I stayed in the bushes/trees to regain the paths in the bracken back to Folleigh Close but encountered some old stone pits to the east of the 4th green which were a bit of a hazard.

Having bagged the surface block on my last visit I returned today to bag the pillar this time. I parked in Folleigh Close which is tenth of a mile from trig as the crow flies. Loads of ferns to wade through but easy enough. Footpaths are very well defined. Once at pillar I bushwaked my way through undergrowth with my walking pole. Glad to have bagged it but this one will never be in anyone's top 10 trigs.

Parked on B3128 part way along Clarken Coombe where RoW joins with road. On RoW initially then followed stone wall at edge of golf course before breaking out for 5th tee. No one around, except a groundsman who must be used to triggers as he didn't even have courtesy to return my friendy wave! Pillar is indeed in a sorry state having been moved approx 35m NNE into the gorse; all iron-work missing and evidence cemented over making for a slightly bizarre spectacle, a bit like Salvador Dali's The Dream.

Entered Golf Course at Public Footpath at crossroads to West. Groundstaff and golfers happy to direct me towards 5th tee (knowledge gained from this site). Stopped by another member of groundstaff on route, but he was happy for me to continue when I explained and gave further directions to find. Spotted old base and into nearby bushes to find pillar. moved and heavily damaged, as previously noted.

~10 M to north of 5th tee. Hidden in a gorse bush next to oak tree. NO spider of FB, resulting damage has been concreted over, leaving rounded edges rather than beveled edge typical of a pillar.

Toppled or moved - Damaged - this one has it all - located about 30m North of 5th tea - best approached from west side as slightly less brambles and gorse - bit sad looking with cemeted top and FB appature.

Thanks to Tom for the GR of the new location. Not so sure I would have found it in the gorse without it. Emerged from the bushes immediately in front of a groundsman, who studiously ignored me and let me walk off!

FB and Spider gone with resulting damage cemented over. Immediately N of 5th tee, behind gorse bushes. Golf course deserted on a rainy Sat pm. Don't know what to make of the block E side of tee: not obviously golf-related, and the 7th tee doesn't have one.

The OS records state this pillar was destroyed in April 1948 and had FB S3268. The golf course was reached from the bend in the road at Clarken Coombe. The original site of the pillar lies between the fifth tee and a small water hazard on this pleasant ridge top course. It mainly has a view south through nearby trees to Dundry, Yanley and other low lying ridges and hills of North Somerset. There is a 1 foot square concrete block standing several inches proud of ground level a few metres away, next to the tee; is this an erratic block, some bit of golf course paraphernalia or could it be the 1948 replacement tertiary station, Ashton Hill Golf Course Auxiliary, that was computed by the OS at ST 54525 71102? As noted by Bluebeard, in the gorse on the other side of the tee is a trig pillar standing upright on foundations, its top and side is rendered smooth with cement. I presume this to be the original pillar re-sited and I estimate the grid ref to be ST 54534 71118.

No sign of it on the maps nor in real life. Asked at the clubhouse if anyone knew anything about it but nobody did.
