Not convinced this is under the toposcope. GPS put it on NE side, but closer than CJO, at about 1.5m. Spent some time probing the ground, but very rocky. Dug twice, but neither time with confidence. Needless to say I didn't find it.

GPS places 4M to NE of topography. Identified a few rocks but to be frank the measurment error could place block under the topograph as others indicate

The site of the trig is on the highest point of the Polden Hills. Walton Hill is a low ridge of grass and light scrub to the south west of Street. The hill was accessed from the car park on the ridge top road of Cockrod. There is now a low bulky topograph, called an Orientation Stone, occupying the site. Trees block out a view to the north. Conditions were a bit muggy and hazy today. Part of the Somerset Levels can be seen to the south and the ridge can be seen continuing in a north-westerly direction. The hill top is access land owned by the National Trust and is part of the Walton and Ivythorn Hills SSSI. There is a very pleasant short way marked path through woodland on the southern slopes of the hill. Along the ridge to the north-west there is a broader view to the north over Street and Glastonbury to the Tor and of low ridges of grassy hills to the north west.
