Parked in nearby layby and walked along very busy road to the site. Viewed from the road side of the hedge as was not dressed for gate climbing.Looked in fair condition from my position Good views of the Ragley Estate although a bit misty.

Parked in the gateway Northbound and walked back a short way to a gate/fence combination. The pillar has a crack running roud threequarters of it near the base.

I would not like to guess how many times we have drove past this one :)

Drove past here so many times and never spotted this Trig before today. Nipped over the gate and took photo. The sheep all ran off and left me to it. Great views in most directions, but its a shame that they've planted a load of conifers to block the view on the Alcester side.

A bit of a trek could have taken a nearer gate.

Spotted this on my dash-mounted Satmap whilst driving by. Pulled over into a gateway, accessed the trig via a (locked) small gate. Pillar is cracked all around its circumference. Good view if you can see over the hedgerow.

As I was driving a van, I could see this one over the hedge and pulled up in the field entrance on the opposite side and entered via the small gate at the north end of the field, as others have done. Comparing photographs, this has been repainted since 2007. All top metalwork intact but pillar has cracks.

An easy one to start the day. A copse has been planted just to the east of the pillar but the pillar remains undisturbed.

Easy access. Plug with indented lettering.

Cracked, water seeping from inside, otherwise intact. In a field with deer,judging by the prints. Animals jump the hedge into the B4088. Drive carefully. Gate frequently used by quadbikes. They do not jump the hedge.
