  • mccoywynne says...
  • Found this trig point today 24/04/14. It is in a back garden and the trig is built into the garden wall. The other trig nearby has been removed
  • jonglew says...
  • Pillar destroyed 1947. Pillar seen by mccoywynne is probably the Upton Beacon Connecting Point pillar
  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Found the water tower and summit OK (hard not to) but searched high and low for trig which I guessed (correctly)was in one of the back gardens but nobody at home so thought better not explore uninvited.
  • rhw says...
  • This trig, Upton Beacon, at summit is destroyed. Upton Beacon Connecting Point in garden is extant
