Slightly tricky to reach as the short path to the trigpoint has become increasingly overgrown with gorse.

Quite a long walk up the track from the car park. Turned left, still on the Tennyson Way, then went straight up into the forest. Trig is just to the right along its own little path.

In shrub and heath. Surrounding area cleared of trees so shrubs will grow quickly now. Good mobile phone network speed in car park and lots of well cared for pooches having their morning constitutional.

Easily accessible and highly visible being just off a public right of way. I used the public car park to the west and used a series of footpaths to reach the pillar. A lovely view point. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug.

Located a short distance from the Tennyson Path. Pillar is in good condition and mounted on a solid concrete plinth. We were primarily bagging the Marilyn on this walk, with which we were accompanied by our eldest son who happened to be staying on the Isle of Wight at the same time as we were. Dull weather, but some good views to be had to the south.

Walking from Yarmouth to Newport via Freshwater. Accessed this trig point from path coming up from south but then made mistake of trying to get back onto Tennyson Trail by continuing east. Thick gorse barred the way.

Thought about trying to reach the trig from the east off the Tennyson Trail - glad I chose to walk round to the access track to the west!

A very brightly white painted Trig sitting on an elevated plinth, unmissable against the background of gorse and bushes. Depite the height here the vegetation has obscured any real views. However a pleasant early evening walk to this heathland summit. The O/S website lists the computing year as 1942 and the height a/s/l as 214.152 metres (702.60 feet).

Second LUMP of six from road at 126m asl, first path past road to Coombe Farm, then walk uphill. Route finding easy. Lovely wall to wall sunshine on a rest day from FMD Guildford.

Actually bagged as a Marilyn. Trig nice and painted bright white. Too much shrubbery for good views. Nice day and encountered a slowworm on ascent.

I assumed that this would be hard to find and in the middle of a forest. Not so. High up. and good views on the way, but a bit disappointing really.
