Not much to add to David Lever's location information, except to add the block is on the right hand side of the 'path' through the hedge (going from the swing)

Fair bit of locating required for this one and returned it to its previous cunning disguise.

Station T047 in Secondary Block SU59, listed as a block. In hedge between playing fields and access field. To begin my GPS pointed into the field to the S and I had no joy. Then I thought you often find trigs in hedges. I dived in and a couple of yards away saw the corner of a concrete block. I cleared the leaves and found the bolt. I left it as I found it with leaves over the bolt for protection. Access from Masefield Crescent to W of B4017 Drayton Road (former A34 to Newbury - hence I guess the name), south side of Abingdon. Go across the playing fields to the swings in the SW corner. Then 5 yds to SE from SE upright there is a path through the hedge with a shallow ditch in the middle. The block is on the far side just in from the S side of hedge. Computed 1951, Maintained 1972. Not convinced the block is as horizontal as I would expect.
