Decided to walk across the field to where the trig would have been on the way back from visiting its replacement (Crooked Soley). Field had been ploughed and planted, but hard frost had renderd eveything concrete-like! The field is exposed to the buildings of three farms, so perhaps risking getting shouted at, but no-one saw me - or was bothered by my trespass. Farmland views only.

Another "definitely missing" log. Field easily surveyed from track to other Trig.

I agree with others, this one has gone. The site is in the middle of a (presently harvested) flattish arable field, about 300m off the track, and you don't need to walk onto the field to see that the trigpoint has gone. I suspect this one was destroyed before the OS had finished using it, so TP2612 was built nearby as a replacement. TP2612's unusually high FB number also suggests that it's a recent addition to the network.

Field The trigpoint would have been clearly visible in this photo if it was still there.

I don't believe this trig still exists. The location is in the middle of an arable field, which had recently been harvested. I believe it would be straightforward to find were it still in existence, but I failed. It is marked on my old 1" map (dated 1967), whereas the nearby trig at Crooked Soley is not. East Soley is not marked on more modern maps (e.g. my Sheet 174 dated 1979), whereas Crooked Soley is. The spot heights of the two trigs are not given on the respective maps. What is the history of there being two trigs so close together?
