SK8003 : Trig point 191m

taken 7 years ago, near to Launde Abbey, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Trig point 191m
Trig point 191m
The trig point column is built hard against a hedge, which has presumably grown up since it was last in regular use - see SK8003 : Trig. Point near Launde Park Wood five years earlier. The spot height is given on the map as 191m, one of the highest points in the hills west of Rutland Water, so perhaps surprising that the hill appears to have no name. It is also on the boundary between Rutland and Leicestershire - allegedly one of the most ancient boundaries in England, dating back to the Iron age.
