    If you want a really inaccessible trig, how about this (and its twin a few km to the north east):

    Re: Seldom visited trigs

    I grew up here, this trig being behind my house, 5 yards from my back fence. Sad to see a recent visitor has found it toppled. Not a lovely spot by any means, but a seldom visited trig for sure. You get a view south towards nottingham but it's a hill that has been subsumed by an estate and would have had a good view in its day. Quite sad now looking at this http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1205299

    Would definitely sort out the men trespassers from the boy trespassers?
    I thought that some of the place names looked familiar? Wife's sister lives in Cricklade (N. of Swindon). We are due for our annual pilgrimage - February half term week - I usually take the 'cross bike down and fit in a couple of sections of the Ridgeway.
    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Amazes me that the scrotes who toppled it would probably scream the house down if they had to put that much physical effort into a honest day's work!!

    I've only been to Bulwell once - it was in 1995 and our car was nicked from outside the house. Never did find it. Maybe it was used to knock over that trig point.

    You can't claim it's 'seldom visited' though Jez!
    It'd have to be my own 'most visited' trig.
