The site of the trig is now in the Long Beech Camp Site in the New Forest between Lyndhurst and Fordingbridge. The water tank was associated with the World War II airfield of RAF Stoney Cross, it was apparently removed in 2004. Ponies were grazing on grass near to the former trig site but trees prevented a view further afield. There is some very pleasant heathland and woods nearby.

Long Beech camp site. OS have this trig extant, but seems it's been destroyed. Where the water tank once stood seems to be a water point for the campsite; has a wooden fence around it with a gate - sign indicates the water point, but there are no taps (maybe removed for the winter).

SU31 T448 HOLE. "Drill hole in bolt". Was a steel tank on legs which was demolished 2-3 years ago according to local information. All that remains on site are some disused stand-pipes beneath. Peacocks and horses make this a pleasant site. It is also a Forestry Commission camp site.
