TP0908 - Ashton Hill Golf Course

~10 M to north of 5th tee. Hidden in a gorse bush next to oak tree. NO spider of FB, resulting damage has been concreted over, leaving rounded edges rather than beveled edge typical of a pillar.

Toppled or moved - Damaged - this one has it all - located about 30m North of 5th tea - best approached from west side as slightly less brambles and gorse - bit sad looking with cemeted top and FB appature.

Thanks to Tom for the GR of the new location. Not so sure I would have found it in the gorse without it. Emerged from the bushes immediately in front of a groundsman, who studiously ignored me and let me walk off!

FB and Spider gone with resulting damage cemented over. Immediately N of 5th tee, behind gorse bushes. Golf course deserted on a rainy Sat pm. Don't know what to make of the block E side of tee: not obviously golf-related, and the 7th tee doesn't have one.

The OS records state this pillar was destroyed in April 1948 and had FB S3268. The golf course was reached from the bend in the road at Clarken Coombe. The original site of the pillar lies between the fifth tee and a small water hazard on this pleasant ridge top course. It mainly has a view south through nearby trees to Dundry, Yanley and other low lying ridges and hills of North Somerset. There is a 1 foot square concrete block standing several inches proud of ground level a few metres away, next to the tee; is this an erratic block, some bit of golf course paraphernalia or could it be the 1948 replacement tertiary station, Ashton Hill Golf Course Auxiliary, that was computed by the OS at ST 54525 71102? As noted by Bluebeard, in the gorse on the other side of the tee is a trig pillar standing upright on foundations, its top and side is rendered smooth with cement. I presume this to be the original pillar re-sited and I estimate the grid ref to be ST 54534 71118.

No sign of it on the maps nor in real life. Asked at the clubhouse if anyone knew anything about it but nobody did.
