Returned today with GPS and bins! - No camera. The pillar is behind the perimeter fence, the FB facing away from the PROW to the west of the airfield. The GR at the fence was SU16213 38702. It is visible from the 5th hedge cut away from the south, the Porton road end.

This was planned as a 5 mile stroll to cross off a green dot on my Salisbury map - destroyed pillar. Parked at High Post Hotel, now called Stones, and folllowed the PROW northwards alongside the golf course, crossed two roads to the start of the 8ft fence surrounding Boscombe Down Airfield. Continuing along the path with a high hedge between the path and the permiter fence, then the hedge had been cut down for about 15 yards, then back to hedge and then another patch cut down, I was admiring the range of flowers that had been able to grow once they could see the light of day. Glanced up at the airfield and what looked very much like a pillar was about 20 yards inside the airfield!! I had no binoculars with me nor my E-trex. I would estimate my GR to be SU162 387. I will return later in the week better equiped - watch this space.

Asked at Ash Barn, young lass called out to Ann, the owner, who was in the yard, she was more than happy to escort me to the pillar which is protected behind a fence and is painted white, unable to get a GR but FB visible. Ann told me that her sister paints it and looks after it. Well done her.

Very sad - this TP has been moved from it's last resting place in the hedge to 0.3 mile further along the road towards Gardeners Lane at SU333199 and is now being used with another lump of concrete to block the entrace to a field. It may be moved when the crop is harvested. I hope it does not get vandalised.
