Long Description:
This metal tripod trig is 'just' inside a fenced property (maybe 30 - 40 metres), but I found a slack spot in the wires, and easily climbed through without damage. No cows, or sheep in sight. 'GCA' gives the Elevation as 288 metres. Beneath the vanes of the tripod is a circular bronze Survey Marker: 6526x1285.

Each of the elongated 'semi-circular' vanes are 'highly' perforated (with x 21 on each vane!), and may have been painted in the past, but are rather corroded now. They are 'double-braced', with two narrow L-shaped metal strips across each vane, with further L-shaped strips bracing to the adjoining vane. The vanes are fixed to a single galvanised pipe (possibly ~35 mm diameter), which is then held, and fixed to the converging three legs of the tripod.

Access: Turn off of Main South Road, onto Sappers Road, which heads to a nearby wind farm, and park on the side of the road.
