I had my whining family with me for this one so I was literally running round trying to find it. I found an ominous spot in the hedge where something of trig point dimensions may have been. I uploaded a photo that shows the wooden poles and the tank of a new washroom block and hope that I am wrong.

I have seen this peak from many others so I would anticipate a good view from here.

My route to this trig started at the car park/view point at SN9270203094. I followed the road down the hill and went east along the perimeter of the forest. This was hard going because of the swampy & tussocky grass. I came back via the wide forest road starting at SN9429703269. This was longer but easier. I hit the road at SN9229702719 where there is space to park so this would have been a nice place to start. Good views at the trig spoiled by inclement weather. Nice view from SN6464203409 not to be missed.

View obscured at trig by recently felled timber but good views available from summit in places. Followed the overhead cables at ST0617299218 down hill back toward ST0577799339. Either way is OK but forest road is easier gradient if a little longer.

Satellite photos help here because the clearly visible concrete water tank is within a couple of meters of the trig. I have marked this as a five because the immediate view from the trig is poor due to obscuring trees. Walking around a bit pays off because you get a feel of what the views may once have been. The Garth Hill trig TP3324 is visible with all three burial mounds. Also nice views over the channel.
