View Full Version : 75th anniversary meet - April 18th

A number of us are proposing to meet up at TP0256 Cold Ashby at 12 noon on April 18th to celebrate the first measurement made from a trig point.

We will then retire to a nearby pub to drink a toast to those early pioneers.

The plaque on the trig reads:-
"ORDNANCE SURVEY COLD ASHBY The first observations for the retriangulation of Great Britain were made at this trigonometrical station by Sergeant G. F. Mullinger, Royal Engineers on 18th April 1936. There are 11,678 such stations and the last observations were made at Thorney Gale in Westmor- land on 4th June 1962."
