Don't be deceived by the private lane sign as hidden behind it is a stone public footpath sign. Walk along the tarmac lane and to the right is the wonderful windmill house and then take the gate to the left into the open space for the pillar and for fantastic views.

Second easy bag of the day. Parked on road Hill and strolled up the track to the open access land. Lovely outlook to the west. Windmill is in good condition. 299th pillar bagged; still plenty to go at. Missed the Battle of Hastings anniversary by a week. C'est la vie!

Easily reached up a muddy footpath from Battle or more easily via Mount Street and Caldbec Hill via the windmill. Common access land so no issues with reaching the pillar. Tarmac plug.

In public open space close to Battle windmill [and the geocache!]. Ashphalt plug replacement. No paint. Sightholes closed. Moderate N views.

Took a look at this one after a visit to Battle Abbey. Parked on grass verge at Caldbec Hill and took short walk up lane leading towards the windmill. Good views of the East Sussex countryside.

Still in good condition, apart from the plug. Good views to the west. I don't know how TP numbering arose, but it's a shame someone didn't fiddle it to make this one TP1066!

Driving from Laughton to Rye with Tyrolean Maid and spotted this one as it popped up on the radar. Parked on the grass, close to the end of the access road and made the short walk up to the public area. Apart from the tarmac replacement for the missing centre plug, this pillar is complete and in good condition. The view over the valley to the north-west(ish) is excellent. ‘Twas a lovely day for a battle and both sides set too with a will. When all were duly assembled, they tossed for the top of the hill. King Harold, he won the advantage and on top of the hill took his stand. With his Knaves and his Cads all around him, on his horse, with his hawk on his hand.
