Nice views from the trig, but very overgrown.

For this one, I parked by the roadside in Newton St Loe and walked to the pillar. The pillar is on the ‘wrong’ side of the dense hedge bordering the farm road and I had to walk about 100 yards past the pillar’s location to find somewhere I could get through. Even then, it was a struggle. The pillar was almost totally obscured by ivy but fortunately, the ivy was easy to push away to allow a photograph of the top. The pillar is in good condition and complete with all it’s metalwork. The centre plug, unusually, had no engraving on it. The mist had started to clear, allowing a reasonable view to the north. There is a farm shop in the village at ST 70416 64758 that does an excellent breakfast from 07:30 in the morning. Well worth a stop!.

Took a while to find before I realised I had to scramble through a hedge.

Pillar is on bank above track east out of Newton St Loe. To get to it I had to scramble through a hedge into the edge of the field. The pillar is almost completely covered in vegetation! There was a tractor working in a field a short distance away so I didn't hang around for long! ?Metal top, FB faces S, sightholes not observed.

Followed route left by other Geocachers who'd visited from the nearby camping event.

Lovely surroundings. The hedge at this time of year is far too thick to traverse - I approached this via the public footpath entrance on the opposite side of the field and walked around the field's edge since the crops were fully grown. The trig point itself was also surrounded by long grass and nettles, but a nearby Geocaching event has ensured several visitors recently as it has also recently acquired the Ye Ole Survey Monument status of being a virtual cache.

Nothing to see here nowadays and a bleedin' nightmare to get to ! Tried to trample down the grass but probably in vein !

Parked just off the main road walked along a farm track, trig the other side of the hedge (as usual)

The hedge is getting thicker, access still easy from the track but a public path enters the field a little further up Pennyquick for easier access while the field is not under crop, good views across the Avon valley.

waited until the tractor and plough were going away from me on the other side of the field and then popped through the hedge from the track for a quick record check

In the area caching Easy access via farm track and through the hedge (no barrier at this time of the year!) Good views to the north

This was my first trigpoint, just saw the dot on the GPSR on my way back from some caching.

Another easy one with good views.

Trig is in the hedge and bracket is on the wrong side of the hedge. Track slightly sunken so you need to climb up to get to it

Next to a cycle track. Brass plug with NO lettering (these are few and far between).
