took a little finding this,no hope from the road,you have got to use the road inside the housing area to get to it.

Interesting spot next to the tower, but no view unfortunately has to equal an average rating here.

Pretty dismal location, particularly late on a grey April day.

Mossy and crumbling edges is all I can say here. Finally after 9 years I come back and find what was there all along. Comparing my photos from my last unsuccessful visit (which I didn't actually log on here) I can see now why i missed it. The dense undegrowth that completely hid the trig in 2003 is all gone. Probably due to acid rain, global warming, or more likely, the current drought! Now the change of condition: Looking at the photos of others and seeing the moss eating away at the flaking crumbling edges, I reckon we should now class this one as slightly damaged. Its been going that way over the last few years and its just a matter of when we actually pin the changeover down. Its a bit arbitrary I know but i think there are other trigs in the same state that are classed as slightly damaged so I'm voting for this one to go the same way.

Parked in farm car park & into woods for a quick photo. No views but interesting air vent nearby. Trig moss covered with asphalt cap

Parked up and did the fence hopping reccomended by previous visitors whilst Mrs Ted went and bought some apples and cougettes from the nearby farm. I am hoping the latter will be baked under some pastry some time today if I lucky.

Cycled up from boat moored at Gayton. Intriguing spot, trig stands next to one of Blisworth canal tunnel construction shafts - now ventilator. Pillar covered in moss.

Very interesting spot with the interesting canal tunnel shaft nearby. Seen a few of these dotted around but this is the closest we've got to one. Took some photos at the trig. Access not too bad - once you find a gap in the hedgerow then it's all clear on the other side, and you can't really miss the trig. Good 'un :)

Located a few meters off the road on top of small hillock, no views due to density of tree cover.

Buried in wood and undergrowth.

EASY to access, just park in the large car park in Blisworth Hill Farm. A short walk up from there, no fences.

...but not so clever getting back across it though. Parked on the roadside given the long clear straight

Next to air shaft,access fine over fence.

We parked at the side of the road and I hopped over the barbed wire fence. This bit of woodland almost seems to be like no-mans land. The tunnel air shaft is quite interesting. The trig is quite green with algal growth. Tarmac plug.

Hard to access this, as to the north there is an on-going business park development which has a high fence blocking off the trees and to the south is a stud-farm which has equally high fences and CCTV's. Found the hole in the hedge used by a previous logger and got there that way! In deep woodland adjacent to one of the Blissworth canal tunnel ventilation shafts.

Passing within 5 metres twice daily at the moment. Thought my local hill deserved better photo and it would have to be without the canopy of leaves so I stopped for a moment.

Along with Hunsbury Hill my local points. A mark for the ventilation shaft but overcome by the trees.

Yes definitely there at the base of the canal tunnel airshaft chimney, around the opposite side from the concrete plinth mentioned by the unsuccessful searcher.

At foot of old spoil heap 5m E of canal tunnel vent structure, accessible via hole in road hedge; 23/5/03 reported missing on T.UK; first seen by me 10/10/00 checked 20/8/03 and definitely still there!!
