3 of 3 today, parked at Sports ground car park and after a short walk and a bit of searching found the access to the trig behind a boundary fence and utilities box next to the last house on Birch Grove, with the help of a good pair of secateurs and a few scratches I found the pillar a few yards in, this trig is in good condition with FB, Spider and centre plug all intact, no views at all from here.

Short walk from sports ground car park. A bit difficult to get too, but cut my way through.

Easily accessible by passing electric box and ducking under branch of tree. About 2m in from the corner of the fence. Good condition. Stood on its plinth. Plug, spider and FB intact.

This has been the hardest Trug Pillar to find to date and gave me the right Merry run around. We circled the area twice before finding the elusive pillar amongst dense undergrowth right next to a residential garden fence.

In amongst trees and vegetation at the start of the lane beyond last house. Went through the gap by the electric box thing.

Parked near the Community Centre down the road and around the corner then left the dog in the car for this short visit to the pillar. Did as previous visitor, dived in by the utilities box and you are close to this unremarkable pillar.

In tangle of scrub woodland, 2m from boundary fence of last house in row and 15m from road. Access through hole in "hedge" on corner of road/drive to house, behind metal utilities box. Original cap. Might have had views once, it certainly doesn't have them now.

Scrubby piece of woodland W side of 8 Birch Grove, accessed from a gate under a lamp post. Easier to circumnavigate the gate rather than go over it, but mind the 2 strands of cut barbed wire - just 1 of them took out a large chunk of my trousers, hate to think of what 2 could have done! A horizontal fracture runs across all 4 sides at mid-FB level. The original top cap is retained, lightly indented lettering; all sight holes closed. No views.

Assume it's completely overgrown. Just couldn't find it, though must have been within a few metres. Don't like failure. Not a nice spot either

This is easy for access but the pillar is very overgrown. Fortunately the FB faces west. Plug with indented lettering.
