Tower has been demolished, it would have stood in the rough just south of tee-off on 16th fairway of Chippenham Golf Club. Visited today and no sign on the ground that it ever existed.

The site of the trig is on the edge of a golf course on a small hill to the north of Chippenham. The site was reached partly by means of a farm driveway and field side paths from The Plough at Kington Langley to the north east. The tower can still be seen on Google Earth images from 2006. At the time of my visit there was no sign of a water tower or a bolt. Several patches of grass nearby were coloured differently and may be where the legs of the tower once stood. The surrounding countryside is of rolling low hills of woods and arable farmland. A fox was seen skulking in the crops of a field on my return to The Plough.
