For some reason I didn't notice this one last time we walked along the by-way (years ago). Its in the middle of a (ploughed) field, didn't stomp up to it.

High point of a circular walk from West Meon. Somewhere to stop for lunch. The South Downs Way is now routed past the trig point from the Beacon Hill car park, then down to the White Way via a permissive bridleway... more changes coming in the near future (according to signs).

Giraffe on pillar The path back to the Beacon Hill car park follows the line of trees in the background.

Regarding this toppled trig's new location - is it on top of a filled in bunker?

View towards Swyre Head Look upon me all ye mighty and despair etc.
Does by bottom look big in this? Ever wondered what the underside of a pillar looks like? Comparing this to some other photos it looks like this pillar has moved around a bit since its big move.

Unless you like wet feet and the pain of gorse-scratched legs don't try to get to this trig point from the car park alongside the road at Giew Mine. Take the footpath heading ENE from close to the pub in Cripplesease. Once you've passed the 12 O'Clock Rock (obvious lump of granite up the hill on the left) head up the hill along the path through the bracken keeping the chunky stone wall to your left. The trig pillar is on top of the hill. Very windy up there.

On top of the pillar Windy afternoon.

Its within the Neolithic camp on Hambledon Hill, although there's not much of the camp to see. Your attention is drawn to the Iron Age hillfort at the northern end of the hilltop.

Look west from here and, about 100 metres away, you'll see a Bronze Age bell barrow amongst the gorse. There are several barrows on the hill itself but they have been mutilated by the hill's use as a rabbit warren in more recent times.

Pillar and silver birch The ground around the pillar is getting worn away, revealing its base.
