On pre-breakfast walk from nearby campsite. Pillar spotted easily as whole hedge looked to have been recently cut back but, to access field had to crawl under electric fence so ended up damp and muddy. Luckily the frisky cows were in the next field or it might not have been so easy to make my escape when they decided to give chase!

A mud- and bramble-fest from start to finish. Access from the E, where it was found between wire stock fences completely overgrown with bramble. Cut it out to reveal a pillar in good condition. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; all sight holes sealed. 360deg views, a little limited to N by hedgerow.

I walked over to this one from the village to the East then followed hedge up hill to the pillar - it is lost in the hedge - it is on the East side - managed to get FB image by kicking brambles out of the way.

Pillar well part of it

The pillar stands on the side of a field grazed by cattle on a low downland ridge to the north of Weymouth. The trig is protected by a dense growth of brambles and an electric fence. It has FB S6000 and the spider is plugged with a metal cap with what felt like deep lettering. My attempt to lean over for a closer look was rewarded with a mild shock to the groin from the fence. The other side of the trig is a stone wall, more brambles and another electric fence on the edge of the adjacent, empty field. A footpath from Broadwey runs adjacent to the fields’ southern boundary. Both fields are easily accessed and the cattle appeared to be almost oblivious to my presence. From the trig downland ridges can be seen to the north and west; Portland can be seen to the south and coastal cliffs can be seen in the distance to the east.

Trig located amongst brambles, so not easy to take picture of the flush bracket. Route to trig rather boggy.

Early morning run up from Weymouth sea front. Eventually found it after searching in an Ivy bush several metres along the hedgeline. Grey morning average views. Trig has all brasswork intact.

What a lovely number! Easy access to this one off path after lovely walk up from village. Original plug with deeply-indented letters. Cracks across top surface, otherwise OK. No paint. Sightholes below vegetation level. In hedge on edge of pasture field with distant views in all directions. Returned to car in time to hear that Lincoln had reached the play-offs again for the fourth year running!
