2006-08-24 13:00 - TP4464 (Llandegley Rocks)
Beautiful place with views over a valley I know very well, having camped in it for a total of 24 weeks in the past 20 years. See if you can work out who it is in the photos!
2006-06-18 16:15 - TP6196 (Stocking Pelham)
Went on a scan for rubble, bit pointless but road is disintergrating a bit so as I was passing....
2006-06-18 15:40 - TP6155 (Standon)
Underneath oak tree, which is now dying. Path a bit of a trek to get along. I travelled from west to east (as doing a circuit) and the worst bit is just to the east of the Trig.
2006-06-18 15:10 - TP0388 (Knights Hill Farm)
Had a good look along the minor road and track to Knights Hall Farm. No sign of it, although road doesn't look changed in many years.
2006-06-18 15:00 - TP2144 (Cherrys Green)
Quite covered in vegetation but sticks out from footpath side of hedge.
2006-06-18 14:30 - TP7167 (Buntingford)
Don't think the road itself has changed in many years. The side is another thing.

Definitely moved under pylon
2006-05-21 17:00 - TP1730 (Bryn Deri)
Easy to find and easy access. Good views.
2006-05-21 16:00 - TP6386 (The Grove)
Easy to find along minor road with very convenient gate. Good views.
2006-05-21 15:45 - TP2322 (Coed Cefn)
Easy to find with easy access. Good view.
2006-05-02 14:00 - TP3483 (Green Hill)
Poor views, but well visited and beautiful cycling countryside!
2006-05-02 13:30 - TP0309 (Lane End Down)
This is not missing! Well, it is true to say that the pillar is no longer there, but there is a surface plate that is in use.
2006-05-01 12:30 - TP2134 (Cheesefoot Head)
Gap in fence on A-road next to copse, then a 100 yard walk across crop to the pillar.
2006-04-28 12:30 - TP4072 (Huntingland)
Parked at access to Chiltern Way Walk. Lots of paths being created here. Chatted Landrover driver there who said Landowner was the Grundon family who are big round here (into Waste/Recycling, lots of big waste trucks around this part of the country). They live at Ewelme Down Farm which is next farm down the road to the South west. He said he was their manager and it was fine with him. He said "Tell anyone Tom says it's okay". Trig just 20 yards in field from wide field boundary (which is driveable). Was careful not to damage too much crop.
2006-04-28 12:20 - TP1640 (Britwell Hill)
New gate near roadsign very convenient. Extremely easy access and good views north to Christmas Common.
2006-04-28 12:10 - TP0317 (Shirburn Hill)
Footpath style at north corner of field & nearby parking makes it easy access.
2006-04-23 18:52 - TP3467 (Great Sampford)
Simple to get to. Take road up to Parsonage Farm and it's clearly in the field to the right when yo uget there. Chased a hare up the road. Asked permission at the "farmhouse" (not landowner) and they said it'd be fine to look.
2006-04-23 17:00 - TP1912 (Cardinals Green)
Farm agressively private, and you have to walk right through the houses!
2006-04-23 16:30 - TP6041 (Snow Hill)
In a solitary bush, facing away from road, next to layby.
2006-04-23 15:40 - TP2925 (Dunmow)
Compound clearly has nothing in it, had a look for remains to no avail.
2006-04-23 15:30 - TP0394 (Little Dunmow)
There has been a lot of pavement work in the past 6-12 months and a lot of disturbed surface soil. I couldn't find anything although will not rule out incompentence.
2006-04-23 15:00 - TP5088 (New Barns)
Byway (means you can drive, as long as you have a 4x4 for the first 100 yards) from North East seems the easiest. Possibly easier, if you really must drive, from Stebbing end, or on private track(s) from Whitehouse farm.
2006-04-23 14:20 - TP4666 (Markswood)
Accessed up "Markswood Farm" track from Bardfield road. Public footpath, but vehicles not welcome. I asked at "Farm" (it's not the land owner) and they said it'd be fine to go along the ditch/field boundary. Easy walk without crop damage caused. Cycled on south down track (public footpath) to Brazenhead farm.
2006-04-23 14:00 - TP1021 (Bardfield End)
Cycled along footpath from Thaxted and on to Barfield End Green. It was on the path with a slightly damaged top.
2006-04-23 13:35 - TP6952 (Wills Ayley)
I don't think this is a "Duplicate of St Aylotts", I think it probably was St Aylotts (that means it was moved). Either that or the FB number isn't the same and it was a separate pillar that has been removed. Either way, it shouldn't be logged as found if it's not distinct from St Aylotts.
Wills Ayley Location ©rad
2006-04-23 13:30 - TP6122 (St Aylotts)
Easy to get to. Up (unsigned) tarmac track to Saffron house, and when you get to the entrance take footpath to the right.
2006-04-22 16:30 - TP4543 (Lords Bridge)
This is well used as shown by the cars round the entry house, the open and shut gates, the magnetic strip card entry mechanism, and all kind of things! Would advise ringing to check, number given on entry mechanism is 01223 262 463.
2006-04-22 15:30 - TP1675 (Broom Farm)
Easy to get to behind hedge to the south of the track, which is well used by lots of people. Opening in hedge just before trig, very obvious!
2006-04-22 14:50 - TP6736 (Warden Tunnel)
Pharisee's good work is still intact, and think it will remain for a little while. Brambles won't grow back for a few months, although fresh Hawthorn is starting. How to get to it (without a GPS)? As you come along the track from the road, note the first tree (as opposed from bushes) along the mound, about 100 yards from the track. This is just a bit too far along. Now as you approach the mound line, there is a wildlife enclosure to the left. Go along the track right to the other end of this. There might still be a path through the 20 yards of crops on your right to take you the right side mound. Follow the North-East side of the mound for 75 yards, until just before the serious brambles. Turn up the mound, under the tree and work your way into the brambles.
2006-04-22 14:20 - TP3592 (Hammer Hill Farm)
Nice views of Bedford and right next to the mina junction at the north end of the Sommerfield miniture railway. Although open today, nothing happening (shame!), and a new circuit currently being added.
2006-04-22 14:00 - TP2155 (Chicksands North Radio Mast)
This is odd and previous photos show concrete pillar of some sort (but not trig). This is clearly on the side of the hill, with little to map from it (small valley). I'm not convinced it's where the Trig would have been. Also not impressed with the local farmers who have put up "Private road" notices on public bridleways (probably because they have put a concrete surface down, which technically is "their road" even if it is on top of the public route). Also, footpaths through field was in the process of being ploughed up.
2006-04-22 13:30 - TP0383 (Shefford)
Very strange. In modern brick in modern wall, looks placed there! South side of Polehanger Farm entrance on Meppershall road just off A507.
2006-04-22 13:00 - TP1830 (Bygrave)
Easy cycle ride up from A507. Track may get wet, but will dry very easily in any sun/wind thanks to drainage and soil-type. Trig in next to solitary tree on the top of the hill. Lots of good views (for this part of the world!).
2006-04-16 13:00 - TP5614 (Red Lion)
Nearer 50 yards from road. The side of the field has been "set aside" making it easy to get to and not damaging anything. Size of the dogs in nearby house a bit alarming!
2006-04-16 12:30 - TP4018 (Horham)
Even went looking for signs of familiar rubble on nearby pulled-up runway pile. Nothing to see.
2006-04-16 12:05 - TP0409 (Crown Corner Aux0)
2006-04-16 12:00 - TP2636 (Crown Corner)
Pub is called the Brundish House now.
2006-04-16 11:50 - TP0471 (Foals Green)
Bit of a dig again.
2006-04-07 19:30 - TP2996 (East Soley)
Another "definitely missing" log. Field easily surveyed from track to other Trig.
2006-04-07 17:30 - TP2612 (Crooked Soley)
Can drive down the track past the farm/hamlet at Crooked Soley, although ruts get bigger when you reach the track going south. Horse area, so people are very keen to stop trespassing near their "rather expensive" horses. Follow track south, the turn back along hedge on the south side and the trig is easily found.
2006-04-07 17:00 - TP6935 (Wickham)
Rotten trunk blocking track into woods is now hidden behind gorse bushes. Currently quite simple to get in, but might get hard in summer. Trig 10 yards to the right of the track close to the aerial.
2006-04-07 16:15 - TP1533 (Borough Hill)
Top of hill cleared about a year ago, looking at hte state of the felled wood. Very easy to get to, even a stile at the sout-east corner of hilltop copse. View of M4 a disappointment, although slightly contented as not still on it!
2006-03-31 13:00 - TP2813 (Douai)
Easy to spot at the side of lane high on a bank in a hedge opposite Douai Abbey & school.
2006-03-31 12:30 - TP6003 (Skinners Green Farm)
Easy to spot at the side of lane high on a bank in a hedge. Very near footpath.
2006-03-31 12:15 - TP3492 (Greenham)
Easy to locate, just over the road from the Greenham Common nature reserve car park. Gap in gorse next to the roundabout, then easy meander through brambles on side of golf course.
2006-03-31 11:50 - TP5303 (Park Farm)
Easy access from the south. Clearly visible from gate on Thatcham ring road.
2006-03-31 11:40 - TP4884 (Moneys Allotment)
As others say, visible from roadside, look straight into the woods just after the Cold Ash sign and it's less than 10yards away.
2006-03-31 11:30 - TP1126 (Beedon Hill)
Difficult search eventually came good, mostly thanks 2 Google Earth aerial photo & overlay. East-west footpath to the south provides best accessing, and feels very trespassy! Go along path from road to first stile, but do not go over. To the right there is a small gap in the hedge which turns into a rough, overwooded path along the edge of the wood. This path becomes the bottom of a wide (dry) ditch and eventualy widens into a dell. As the path goes up the other side of this shallow, the trig is in the undergrowth to the left, less than 5 yards from the field edge.
2006-03-31 11:15 - TP5613 (Red Lane)
Park next 2 placed (not really fallen!) log blocking vehicle access into field. Walk 50yards alongside woods (maybe used for pheasant rearing?). Trig stands slightly beyond end of plantation as you walk from the road (currently somewhat not overgrown).
Red Lane Location ©rad
2006-03-26 15:30 - TP3567 (Hainey Hill)
The farm, correctly identified below is a "Leaf demonstration farm" and is Organic. It is also right next to a large hostel for migrant workers (lots of signs in Polish, Russian, and so on). No "no entry" signs now, and with the number of workers around, nobody is going to know whether you should be there or not! Trig is very visible and part of a section that has been set aside. It doesn't look like they are cultivating anything, but pheasant might be on th agenda. Then access will be hard!
2006-03-26 15:20 - TP0549 (Wicken (1984) (R))
Right next to road at works entrance. Nasty public notice about storage of 50 tonnes of petrol attached.
2006-03-26 15:15 - TP2633 (Crowhall Field)
Best route is to follow up the field boundary from the A-road. Well hidden in hedge, just at the summit (doh!).
2006-03-26 15:15 - TP7005 (Witchford)
This is gone underneath a very secure stables and farming complex. Lots of security warning signs.
2006-03-26 13:40 - TP5256 (Over)
Could see horse, having a nice rest, but couldn't get through new fence from footpath to the East.
2006-03-26 13:30 - TP5205 (Oakington)
Now behind locked gates, with a lot of "get outta here" messages! Oakington may be stepping up security.
2006-03-18 15:40 - TP6243 (Sugar Loaf)
Had a 1:20 to get up and down from the eastern carpark. Made it, although legs hurt for 3 days. Stunning views across a snowy landscape. Nearly knocked over at the top with 60mph winds (nothing in the valley below!).
2006-02-25 13:00 - TP5571 (Rain Stang Hill)
Stunning views, if it wasn't sleeting. Can get to it directly up if you wiggle through sheep hole in wall. Aviod deep heather on way up field.
Getting Through the Wall! Easy access to the field that contains the Trigpoint from the track.©rad

Stuck with nothing to do for an hour, went up here in awful conditions. Fog so no visibility, wet no steady footing underneath.
2005-10-29 13:30 - TP3593 (Hampole Wood)
On road between Brodsworth and Adwick, nicely placed at well marked bridleway
2005-10-29 12:57 - TP7135 (Upton Beacon Connecting Point)
2005-10-29 12:50 - TP1042 (Barnsdale)
Very visible from road to the north travelling from the A1. Folow field boundaries from road.
2005-10-29 12:30 - TP0157 (Roman Ridge)
Quite deep in undergrowth, but visible
2005-10-16 14:15 - TP6268 (Sutton)
Easy to find, no sign of any hedgerow. On south side of road but slightly leaning.
2005-10-16 13:30 - TP2540 (Crane Hill)
Not easy to find at all. Many hedgerows very thick, and no obvious route to the "right place".
2005-10-16 13:10 - TP3454 (Great Gransden)
Easy to spot and get to. Visible from large gap in field boundary next to road.
2005-10-16 12:20 - TP3667 (Hatley Wilds)
If cycling, best approached from the South West following track up to Hatley Wilds, then taking track north and around field with TP in it. Very obvious. Track to the north very difficult on wheels!
2005-10-16 12:00 - TP2642 (Croydon Hill)
Easy to spot on other side of field from road. Track and path from North-West make it an easy get.
2005-07-03 18:21 - TP3704 (Heath Farm)
Approached farm from easterly track which gets you round the buildings (direct track is blocked after farm). Looked for someone to ask but couldn't find anyone. Stunning view from the top.
2005-07-03 15:20 - TP4417 (Limlow Hill)
A bit of a search. Approach up farm track that follows hedgerow perpendicular from road. Go through the hedge at the footpath and continue up to copse on top of hill. Turn north and follow other hedge, go through this hedge to find TP slightly easier. Good views!
2005-07-03 15:00 - TP6435 (Therfield)
Depressing big metal gate to keep everyone out. Maybe accessible from the back over a bank but no time to look hard for it.
Therfield Gate ©rad
2005-07-03 13:40 - TP3251 (Fowlmere)
Easy access from the East up metalled road with public access to monument. Nice views.
2005-06-11 13:00 - TP4107 (Inkpen Hill)
Confirm that crop makes this one impossible until harvest.
2005-06-11 12:50 - TP0302 (Inkpen)
On nice circular route from Hungerford. Towpath and ridgeway (not The Ridgeway) cycling.
2005-06-11 12:15 - TP5448 (Pilot)
Exactly as Rhayader_W says, although didn't realise the fence was electric until coming back, it's very mild.
2005-06-11 11:45 - TP1488 (Blandys Hill)
Just up path through horse paddock.
2005-06-05 18:25 - TP5718 (Rogues Lane)
Reasonably easy to find, with the good instructions below (best being 10m from wooden pole!).

2005-06-05 17:50 - TP4221 (Kings Bush)
Very easy to find, nice wind.... er, what do you call a single windmast on it's own, it can't be a windfarm?
2005-06-05 16:30 - TP4126 (Jack O'Thumbs)
This is a good walk form the nearest public right of way (the Connington Bridleway). Although positionally well described so far, it's not easy to get to when the crops are up. Best approached up the field boundary nearest to being south from the trig (GR 336654). Stick to the side away from the ditch and follow it all the way round until you can see the mast 50 yards away. You'll turn first to the left away for the mast, but eventually turn back towards the mast and pass the hilltop copse (on the right side of the hedge). Then jump through the hedge on your left and walk along until you come across the trig.
2005-06-03 20:30 - TP2104 (Chalk Farm)
Weird, footpath on OS 1:25k is in a different place, next to main pylons not small ones. Luckily, FP is actually on the hedgerow that includes the TP. Footpath is on west side of hedge with TP on east, but there's a convenient gap about 10 yards north.
2005-06-03 19:50 - TP6754 (Warren Hill)
Good views across Newmarket and definitely after 1pm. In edge of woods in the far south-west corner.
2005-06-03 18:50 - TP2978 (East Green)
This is in a paddock in Freedom Farm Stud (01440-783667) run by James and Celia Miller. I found Porsche in the barn, the lights on, but no answer to the door knocker. I decided that going into a paddock with horses on a stud farm wasn't a good idea.
East Green Pillar ©rad
2005-06-03 18:20 - TP6006 (Skippers Hall)
Easy to spot, if coming from the west. Pillar is 5 yards to the south of the track, on the west side of a hedge.
2005-06-03 17:45 - TP2158 (Chilly Hill)
OS 1:25k footpath from Lark Hall corner dies at the right point to turn left and follow the hedge up to the nearest wood. Farm track (as in not public access) then leads back to the TP, past the (now rare) hares. Followed track back past Spike Hall (er, cottage) to road. Probably better access.
2005-06-03 17:30 - TP0392 (Six Mile Bottom)
At the roundabout end of the up sliproad heading south-west. On the right side of the road. The bolt is in the bit of concrete just beyond the lump of concrete holding the armco barrier.
2005-06-03 17:05 - TP6226 (Street Way)
In the hedge, easy to find.
2005-05-29 16:05 - TP4785 (Metfield)
This is meant to be on the edge of the road (if I can read GRs properly!). Definitely no sign of it.
Metfield Position Nothing visible©rad
2005-05-29 15:00 - TP1814 (Bush Wood)
This is on the north side of the path going to the south of the airfield, about 100yards past turning to the airfield. It has been recently had the vegetation cleared from it and painted, so someone is looking after it! It is at the very edge of the field so further away from the path.
2005-05-29 14:15 - TP4526 (Long Stratton)
Probably best reached from the West across Wacton Common. Landowner is Mr Finch at Le Grys Farm Cottage (GR 187 911), then come south to Wacton Common and skirt Eastern side until gate in slight corner at GR 188 908). Follow field boundaries until at TP. No landowner and high crops, so didn't push it.
2005-05-29 13:30 - TP2819 (Dove Farm)
As previously logged definitely at a different position. GR approxiamately 11740 88800. Doesn't look moved, but how can you tell?

Confirmed no longer there. Road bank is open and clear.

Approach up footpath (as hardcore track) from north (road GR 79375 29975), easily visible.
2005-05-28 16:15 - TP5085 (Neutral Farm)
Approach along path (as track) from either end and skirt round field to other side. Very visible.
2005-05-28 15:45 - TP0758 (Orford Castle)
Nice castle but bolt not found.
2005-05-28 15:15 - TP3853 (Hill Farm)
Track on 1:25k has gone to be replaced by a parallel one 120m to the west. Pillar very visible from the road. Follow this track to the end of the first field, follow the field boundary in and cross the last 10m to the pillar.
2005-05-28 13:00 - TP0412 (Aldeburgh)
Nice waterfront carpark, but no sign of a block anywhere in it.
2005-05-28 12:30 - TP2207 (Clay Hills)
Track marked "Private" from south heavily blocked up with large logs and undergrowth. Once past that track reasonable for a while but clearly the landowner has been working on the drainage and dug up the remains of it. This might have killed the pillar as well, but there is a large section of inpenetrable thicket, which even after good scanning no pillar was visible. Possible return in winter to reduce vegetation cover.
2005-05-14 12:30 - TP3758 (Heyshaw Moor)
Easy to find, track from moor road or folly by foot. "Industrial Teesside"? I don't think so.
2005-05-14 12:00 - TP3659 (Hartwith)
Easy to get to across sheep fields. Pretty badly damaged and badly repaired.
2005-05-14 11:30 - TP1634 (Brimham Rocks)
Popular tourist spot, no cycling (sigh).
2005-05-14 10:40 - TP0154 (Skell Gill)
On a biggish rock at the rightside of the carpark at the high point near Skell Gill. Red marking nicely faded (in that it doesn't look crap).
2005-05-14 10:10 - TP1398 (Bishopside Brae)
Gate near corner opposite disused quarry on Wath Road marked "Private" gives track up to the TP.
2005-04-28 18:30 - TP3120 (Farnborough)
Esay to find, terrible footpath gate for bikes from road in middle of village (NB not cycling, just not locking up either!).
2005-04-28 18:00 - TP0305 (Pit Plantation)
After terrible cycle from Letcombe (Ridgeway tracks this time of year are wet and muddy, still) good to get to this place with a lovely view across to the back of The White Horse (Uffington). Of course the local village, Fawley, was used by Thomas Hardy in Jude the Obscure, Jude Fawley, as a farm worker who wanted to study at Oxford. As the naff will have it, pretty village.
2005-04-28 17:00 - TP2099 (Chain Hill)
Decided not to go across crop. Farm for permission is probably Lark Hill not Chain Hill on the B4494.

2005-04-24 14:45 - TP3757 (Heydon)
Easy to find at back of rubbish tip, off footpath (well track).
2005-04-24 14:15 - TP3814 (High Wood)
Pillar at the back of Windrush kennels & cattery. Situated behind and to the right of the bungalow. Permission to view happily given.
2005-04-24 13:45 - TP2204 (Clavering)
Not to difficult to find but a bit confusing over access. Bridleway from Rickling Road goes through Orchard farm and footpath goes immediately back to the right round the back of the farm. Easy to get caught following the bridleway, like I did! Fortunately, another path is signposted at the next field boundary bringing you back to the Trigpoint.
2005-04-24 13:30 - TP0391 (Rickling)
Had a good look for this along the Rickling roadside but couldn't find a thing. Likely to be removed.
2005-04-24 13:10 - TP5684 (Ringers Farm)
Footpath from Ringers Barn on road has become a farmtrack. Followed public footpath sign and ignored incorrect "Private" sign and Trigpoint is very easy to find.
2005-04-24 12:45 - TP5319 (Parsonage Farm (Newport))
Easy to get to up tracks from all directions. A little distance along a hedgeline.
2005-04-24 11:50 - TP5602 (Rectory Farm)
Permission from Rectory Farm. Perfectly friendly and approachable (once you talk to the owners even the dog stops barking and brings his favourite stick!). Farmhouse is building furthest to the left approaching up track from road. Farmtrack from farm through field westwards from farm, then farmtrack up field boundary to trigpoint.
2005-04-17 13:45 - TP0393 (Helion Bumpstead)
Easy to find, opposite aerial. Bit up the backroads, but nice day for a long cycle!

Yep, easy to find at end of hedge next to road. Also fun to cycle to, although needs a little more effort than a car!
2005-04-17 12:45 - TP4454 (Little Yeldham)
As P says, approach copse from south corner of field at TL 77200 40212, then make your way along field boundary north-eastwards to the nearest place to the copse. Then you only have 75 yards of crop to cross. The TP is at the other end of the copse. Be careful in the copse, I disturbed a deer!
2005-04-17 12:15 - TP2692 (Cutbush Farm)
Visible in hedge opposite rough track.
2005-04-17 11:50 - TP0653 (Clare FBM Aux 1)
Had a long look for it but to no success. Also decided visit to nearby FBM not advisable as crop likely to be damaged.
2005-04-17 11:40 - TP0396 (Chilton Street)
A bit "invisible" as pillar is in the hedge and not obvious, but relatively easy to find.
2005-04-17 11:20 - TP1661 (Brockley)
Knocked over but right next to road.
2005-04-17 11:00 - TP4143 (Kedington)
Definitely removed to behind nearby farm buildings. Now located on back of rubble pile at TL 68870 46320.
2005-04-10 19:00 - TP6167 (Staughton South)
This is in the hedgerow next to the building at the back of the old army base at the back of Little America. It does feel like a very weird place with "the back of nowhere" twinges. There is a nice false pillar behind the building which might be your first approach to the site (from the bridleway at the back). The hedge is on the easterly side of this building, and the TP about 20yards up, although you don't see it until your on it.
2005-04-10 15:00 - TP0794 (Agden Hill)
Not difficult to find as long as you can navigate through the myriad of tracks/woods round the lake. I found that the pylons make good markers.
2005-04-10 14:30 - TP3424 (Grafham)
This is the back garden of the house next to the church, opposite a rather nice shed! I spoke to the land owner, a very nice man, who was very willing to show me the TP, and happily chatted about it and wanting to keep it there. He said that when he bought the property he was told it had to stay and he had to give access to it (I failed to mention that might be the OS only!). He said he's had a few people to look at it, including a school party, but none in the past 4 years. Nice view to Grafham water.
2005-04-10 14:00 - TP0800 (Airfield Land)
Low crop in field, but took care not to trample. And was quick!
2005-04-03 12:30 - TP4957 (Mow Cop)
Nice ride up from the canal, although too misty to see very much. Very nice ride down, but I must remember ot sort out my brakes properly!
2005-03-27 12:30 - TP0472 (Southwold Harbour)
Not sure whether I found this. 2 bolts in the area, one clearly attacked.
2005-03-25 13:20 - TP5792 (Salle)
Quite boring but very easy to find and get to.
2005-03-25 13:00 - TP2481 (Crabtree Field)
Difficult to get to as quite buried in hedge. Best approached from field and gate to the east. West of it is overgrown and looks like a junk yard!
2005-03-05 14:45 - TP1058 (Barrington Hill)
I thought I said that!
2005-02-06 13:00 - TP3409 (Goose Hill)
In second section of very nice woodland walk. Extra tracks not marked on map make this difficult to find. After going into the second section, past the water, at the first choice of tracks, take the middle of three. Eventually, you get ot a clearing with new firs planted. The TP is in an enclosed section, to stop wildlife eating hte new trees. There is a bit where the fence is loosely joined together about 100 yards before the TP, which allows some access. When the trees grow in a few years time, it will become difficult to find in summer, but will probably just peep out of the top of dead bracken in winter.
2005-02-05 12:30 - TP3986 (Holton)
99% certain this one has disappeared under Bernard Matthew's Farm Car Park. Several views from edge of public access show blank areas on given position.
2005-02-05 12:00 - TP5627 (Redisham)
Easy to find next to back road, opposite house called "The Oaks".
2005-02-05 11:45 - TP2741 (Dawsons Farm)
Easy to find next to A-road in field opposite farm buildings.
2005-01-23 15:30 - TP7115 (Littlebury Hedge)
Must have gone right past it several times, but couldn't get to it. Getting too late (and too far to cycle before home) to search properly.
2005-01-23 14:30 - TP4889 (Monks Hall)
Proper access is up track just to the south of main Mitchell's Farm buildings, rather than the "lorry" entrance. You still go through the back of the farm but at least there's a sign saying it's a public right of way (right next to one saying private!).
2005-01-23 14:00 - TP2048 (Catley Park)
Very visible just of Icknield Way Path, nice cycle ride.
2005-01-23 13:00 - TP0774 (Abington Park)
Easy to find from the A11 sliproad, but behind "Private Road" signs. Hmm, not to happy about trespassing.
2005-01-15 13:30 - TP3774 (High Bridge Farm)
On river bank, visible all the way down the track to the bridge.
2005-01-08 15:00 - TP4222 (Kings Farm)
Very visible on West side of road, probably fine to spot all year round.
2005-01-08 14:40 - TP2935 (Dunwich Common)
Not to easy to spot or get to, if you don't like gorse. As you come down the road to Dunwich Common, 100 yards after you leave the trees it is on the slight mound next to the cliffs on the left. Could well disappear in the next few years as coastal erosion is between 1 and 10 foot a year, with about 20 foot to go. In fact The National Trust warn people not to go this near the cliff. Great views across part of Sole Bay to Southwold and, we a bit of movement south towards Sizewell Power Station.
2005-01-06 13:24 - TP2448 (Coton)
Track now quite clear, but will grow up over summer.
2005-01-03 14:45 - TP7125 (New Farm)
Best approached up track from the north rather than track from the west (although this route does give you views of Wimpole and the folly). FB slightly underground!
2005-01-03 14:15 - TP0389 (Orwell)
Good views of Cambridge and easy to access if not public right of way. Just over brow of hill up track form Orwell Road.
2005-01-03 13:45 - TP2115 (Chapel Hill)
Clearly been hit several times with something large! In middle of field with crop, not great for accessing as some crop damage is likely. Best in winter.
2005-01-03 13:30 - TP1058 (Barrington Hill)
Best to go up concrete track in field to the east, then come down to hedgerow from the south (although pillar easier to see from the north).
2005-01-02 12:15 - TP5279 (Painswick Hill)
Incredible views across to the Malverns and Bristol Channel. Windy but sunny today.
View to Malverns ©rad
2005-01-01 14:30 - TP3627 (Haresfield Beacon)
Stunning views, or would be if you could look into the 60mph winds and rain! This is logging extreme styley.
2004-12-28 15:00 - TP6888 (White Horse Hill)
Great views, lots of good walking around here!
2004-12-28 11:30 - TP6176 (Steventon Hill)
Nice views on a cold windy day!
2004-12-26 11:00 - TP1496 (Blewburton Hill)
Approached successfully by bike along the north path, and went down to the west.
2004-12-25 15:30 - TP4560 (Lowbury Hill)
Watched the full moon come up as the sun went down, very nice.
2004-12-24 14:20 - TP3499 (Greenmoor Hill)
Very difficult to find! Go past gate to Aerial and it's in the undergrowth on the right after 20-30 yards. Delightfully covered in moss just to make that quick dash a bit more racy!
2004-12-24 13:30 - TP0543 (Wallingford)
Easy to find but slightly overgrown, can't see the number.
2004-12-24 12:30 - TP3516 (Grims Ditch)
Very easy to find, on path on top of Dyke. Reasonable views for a low lying point.
2004-12-24 12:15 - TP5194 (Nuffield)
In hedge opposite "Old School House" and "Halfacre", but not easy to spot. Cycling is too fast! Plate not visible from road, access to the field using a footpath a little further down the road towards the church.
2004-12-24 11:45 - TP6886 (White Hill)
It's pretty easy to see but difficult to get to. Supposed gate to track from the top of the chalkpit is virtually unpenetrable.
2004-12-23 14:30 - TP2825 (Down Hill)
Also not easy to spot as not at the top of the "hill".
2004-12-23 14:00 - TP1629 (Brightwell Barrow)
Easy to see but a bit difficult to get to. Ploughed fields aren't easy to walk over!
2004-12-12 16:00 - TP0717 (St Anns Hill)
Getting dark, but can see by lighthouse!
2004-11-13 12:30 - TP4560 (Lowbury Hill)
Very cold in the wind, stunning views. Shame about Didcot Power Station.
2004-11-13 12:00 - TP2371 (Compton)
Easy to get to, nice view.
2004-11-11 17:00 - TP3227 (Fore Down)
Nice view of Didcot Power Station.
2004-11-11 14:59 - TP3563 (Hagbourne Hill)
Behind big sign saying "beware of the leopard". Oops, no, I mean "Private, Keep Out".
2004-10-31 21:25 - TP3395 (Gog Magog)
Over wire fence, had to pick a supported post to get in properly. Very boring view from trigpoint, but walks in the area are excellent.
2004-10-20 14:01 - TP2486 (Crafts Hill)
2004-09-23 18:15 - TP1496 (Blewburton Hill)
Shame about the barbed wire around it. Nice day, plenty of sun, wind, and views. Shame I got puncture whilst cycling too it.
2004-09-23 17:20 - TP4560 (Lowbury Hill)
Nice day, plenty of sun, view and wind! Good cycle ride took in this and Blewburton. Grew up around here and it's good to be back.
