Passing the location whilst on a walk so knocked on the door and Ian was in. I'm rather envious of him having a trig point in his garden. Well done for all the effort to achieve this.

Sorry only a 7 but the view is limited. Did not disturb teasel as we think he was still in bed.

Visited by prior appointment with Ian. Pillar has been moved a few miles from it's original location, and has been "re-planted" in the Peaks, pillar in top condition, not as high as others around :)

3/3 What a splendid location! Unfortunately no one in when I called but congratulations to Ian on your achievement.

Every trig has a story to tell and this pillar has its own proud keeper on site eager to recount its coming to be here. A very interesting and insightful hour was spent with Ian discussing the ins and outs of designing the website and many current topics relating to trig hunting in general.

Spotted this one from the Website (obviously not on my usual OS maps). Had saved it rather for a weekend outing with the hope of meeting Ian, but there was no one at home. Lunched in town before heading home via Axe Edge and the Morridge.

Wow! I want one. [OK. For the pedants. Take the path by the side of the car. Turn around by the front door and head across the lawn. Theres a steep climb at the end, but you cant miss it. Honestly. Its easy!] Seriously brilliant. Top man Teasel.

Plug intact with all metalwork in vgc. Interesting to see the base of the plug. BsM-style bracket. Many thanks to Ian and David for showing me their pillar. Perhaps No.148, Brown Edge Road should be renamed 'North Ockendon House' 8-)

Finally caught up with this one nearly 3 years after visiting its vacant ex site. vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. Very nice to catch up with the Teasel family too !

A visit to it old home as well as drawing a blank gains a score for the most inaccessible access to a PROw from a road I have had in a long while.

Pillar in excellent condition, with the shiniest metalwork I've ever seen. Congratulations to Ian on saving this pillar and setting it in such a pleasant location. Slight pity that the pillar doesn't get much of a view - maybe Ian has got a Bilby Tower on the shopping list [:)]. Special thanks to Ian and Jayne for their hospitality.

I visited Ian, by arrangement, on 28 May 2006 to view and photograph the pillar in its new location and I must congratulate him on the excellent job he did on cleaning up the brassware and placing the pillar in an attractive setting in his front garden. Also my thanks for the very friendly welcome that I received from Ian and his family. Non-visit log 20/08/2009 - I have added a few more photos showing the top cap & centre plug in more detail in an attempt to explain why the center plug sometimes has two diametrically opposed holes. I think it might be that the cap has been removed, the plug unscrewed from it and then replaced upside down, though why anyone should want to do that baffles me.

This pillar was removed from the farmer's field, with permission, some time after April 2003. In Jan 2006, it was put up for auction on Ebay. Naturally this caused a bit of fuss, with the result that the farmer was told by the OS to cancel the auction and destroy the trigpoint. I didn't want to see another trigpoint destroyed, even at the behest of the OS, so I contacted the farmer. Several phone calls later, I had his agreement to come and collect the trigpoint. (David, 3, was a bit scared when the tractor came straight for him, but was consoled by getting to climb into the cab and play with the controls!) There followed an interesting drive with the trigpoint perched on top of an old, borrowed trailer. We broke down on the M1 and needed a very nice man from the RAC, then later got stopped by the police... "Let me guess, sir, you got it on Ebay?" "Yes! How did you guess?" "We see a lot of strange things, sir, and most of them are from Ebay". Getting the trigpoint off the trailer was no less eventful, but due to the superb driving skills of the JCB man, it was installed without breaking anything or anyone. So, now that I have a trigpoint in my garden, does that mean I have to shout "get off my land" to anyone I see visiting it?! ;-)

White pillar at junction of two fields at Whitepost Farm. One just ploughed, the other with young wheat.
