Parked by the junction on Haydon Lane, climbed over the gate (no footpath signpost) and headed due north. No footpath sign visible until you cross the field boudary. Footpath lies to the west of the hedgerow, but trig point is embedded in the hedge on the eastern side. Could not get close to the pillar because the gate into that field was blocked by a herd of cows!

Parked at entrance to field gate. ( no sign post there) follow over field to find trig in hedge line. A group of cattle looked on but didn't cause any trouble!

Quite a boring one really. Incredibly easy to find but in a very muddy field at the time!

Last of three for the day whilst on the way to Weymouth. This one is in a hedgerow on the side of a bridleway and the FB faces the right way, for once! Original plug with deeply-indented letters. No real paint at all. Sightholes either closed or covered over. Nearby masts don't do anything for the views. I had hoped for better views than this but they were a bit disappointing.

Unremarkable hedgerow location with some decent enough hilltop views. Trig all ok and intact. Ordnance Survey website lists computing year as 1950 and the height a/s/l as 237.823 metres (780.26 feet).

Parked at nearby road junction. Pillar is by a hedge on an ill-defined byway. Good views in vicinity. Retains plug, small deeply indented lettering.

The pillar is sited in a hedge of a field grazed by cattle, shotgun fire could be heard from the nearby gun club; the pillar has a metal plug with deep lettering and FB S5909. Low cloud and mist limited the view. Gore Hill is nearby to the east, the transmitters of Rampisham Down to the southwest, nearby Haydon Wood to the northwest and mist covered low hills to the north.

the view is only half as good as it might otherwise be because of the tall hedge the trig is beside

Shows lots of potential on the map but unimpressive in person. Most concern was some very agressive cows on the PROW but some arm waving saw them off. Parking roadside as PROW leaves the road

Another hedge dweller with the flush bracket fortunately facing to the side. Views nothing to write home about. Easy access. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering.
