Destroyed Apr 1993. Visited at same time as doing the destroyed pillar, Porton Down. Would have been 60m N of current security fencing but nothing to see - and photography prohibited.

The site of the trig is in the grounds of the Boscombe Down aircraft research and evaluation facility for the MoD that is operated by QinetiQ. It is sited on the downs to the north of Salisbury. The block was a replacement for the destroyed buried blocks that replaced the destroyed pillar here. This military sensitive site is guarded by a formidable fence and frequent warning signs. I did not venture any closer than Winterslow Road to the south of the perimeter. The view south from the road is over gently undulating agricultural downland to a higher downland ridge on the horizon. The top of the spire of Salisbury Cathedral can be seen in the distance.
