Great views from here, but very breezy even on such a fantastic day as this.

This is the lowest lying trig I have ever stumbled across (and you could stumble across it if you don't mind your feet!). I came from the east along the foreshore but there is also easy access straight to it from a track. Slightly damaged on the corners.

Access via narrow unmetalled lanes from Magor/Undy. It is possible to drive to within 60m of the trig. Trig was at one time standing proud on the shore line, but when the coastal defence bank was constructed it was buried to within a few inches of the top as can be seen in the photograph. The centre metal cap is in place but there is damage to 2 of the top corners. Good views of the second Severn crossing.

Parked near the motorway bridge. Pleasant stroll out. In the awful weather the second Severn crossing was just about visible.

Presented in a novel manner, partially entombed in the flood defences. Drove to within 100m of pillar. possible to just make out TP9875 and TP9876 Avonmouth north and south lighthouses.

Tigpoint is buried within the sea wall, with just the upper two inches being visible.

9m above MSL - doesn't look like it to me - global warming (or isostatic recovery)? Easily accessible - drive to end of track (from Undy) and thereafter new gates / signs for Welsh coastal path. Great views of the Severn estuary; metal cap with indented lettering and a fair chunk out of the SE corner of the 'top'!.

An interesting pillar which seems to have been incorporated into the flood defence bank. Just top visible.

Unusual trig! Found while cacheing nearby.

Found that I had not replaced battery in camera so had to take snaps with phone. My 400th pillar.

Buried, just top couple of inches showing (maybe someone will dig it out one day?) Walked in from just past M Way bridge (police speed van on bridge over M4 and hidden from traffic below behind sign the crafty bugger!)See no reason why you cant drive to this one ...the S Wales formation fly tippers have been out in force ( I swear there is no part of the UK that suffers the level of illegal dumping that S Wales does,I counted 4 wheels,2x televisions 1 x Fridge and half a fitted kitchen and that was without looking too hard!) Add to this more manic dogs than you could shake a stick at and a pillar you can barely see this one is for the completists I think!

Parked just south of the 'Great House' at Undy. The roads are marked as private from there. Tried the footpath directly South west (ish) but too muddy and not clear, so resorted to the easy to walk cycle paths and tracks. Had I not read about the buried nature of this trig I would have marked it as missing! A nice spot - great to be buffeted by the sea wind! 9m Me

The pillar is sited inside a levee with only the top few inches showing; it has a metal cap with indented lettering. I parked at the end of the metalled road at Rogiet Moor and walked along the dirt and gravel tracks to the levee. There is a good view of the Severn Bridge and across the estuary to the industry on the opposite bank with low wooded hills of North Somerset beyond. Trees prevent a view inland but returning to the car across Caldicot Moor there is a view northwards of more wooded hills, the motorway and the village of Magor. The levee marks the boundary between two SSSIs: inland is Gwent Levels – Magor and Undy; the other side is the Severn Estuary.

Just over the motorway and just past the road turning for toll booth collectors was an open gate but a sign saying PRIVATE ROAD. I decided not to risk getting locked in and so parked and walked in from here.

Good views of the new severn crossing. Parking from NW in the church car park S of the railway at Undy. Nice bike ride in on well bedded tracks.

Condition is assumed as only about the top 100mm is visible due to the flood protection bank. Good view of the Second Severn Crossing and Denny Island.

Not a pillar at all, unless most of it is buried, as only the top three inches is visible above the sea defence. My lowest trig point to date and hard to believe it is as much as 10m above sea level.

pillar buried in seabank, top visible, metal cap shallow letters
3rd Oct 2004 13:00 by mickandshane
I'm assuming the condition is good because all that is visible of this trig is the top - which still has all it's brasswork and a plug with indented lettering. The rest of the trig is buried in the sea defence bank. Access is easy via tracks that can be driven down from Rogiet Moor and there are good views of the new Severn Bridge. The OS list the FB No as S3282.

Difficult to assess condition as it is buried in embankment by River Severn. Only top showing.

Pillar buried in flood defence bank - only few inches exposed. Condition not covered by options offered - recorded as toppled. FB number believed to be S3282.
