Disappointing. Plenty of barbed wire fences, locked gates and warnings of CCTV and MOD danger signs, but on a quiet Sunday afternoon I decide to risk all and take a look. Eventually found it half hidden by bales of silage with no real views and not much going for it. However the views from the nearby escarpment are very good and were a real bonus, making the trip worth while.

Approached this one from the road to the north by Woolland Hill where there was a most spectacular array of bluebells, through a prickly hedge, then up through a lush grassy field straight to the pillar. Pillar has its cap, & one s/h open.

Managed to pick up a S1506-S1508 primaries sequence on this trip down south (also including Pilsdon and Stinchcombe). Good trigging!

After a stormy night, set out to walk to Copse House but couldn't go that way due to flooded lanes. Decided to go to Bulbarrow instead. Found the TP behind a wall of plastic covered bales. In vgc overall. Posted a photo looking roughly east, since no-one else has. Mist was rising off the ploughed field in the sunshine. Enjoyed a picnic near the car park on Woolland Hill (recommended).

Parked in the Woolland Hill nature reserve car park to walk over Bulbarrow and Lyscombe Hills, both HuMPs. Pleasant 10 mile trog through some picturesque country, we picked up Bulbarrow Hill and its trig on the return leg. A small trespass required past the comms masts and over a fence. We approached from the west so the large stack of silage bales didn't obscure the trig for us.

Situated in a field with two radio pylons nearby. Views somewhat limited due to large quantity of straw bales. Retains plug.

The pillar has a metal plug with indented lettering and FB S1506; it is sited between a stack of green plastic shrink wrapped bales and a fence on the flat summit of the hill, close to several transmitters. Limited views of the Dorset Downs and the Blackmore Vale; but not as good as the exceptional views from the car parks on the Ridgeway, a little to the northeast.

vgc except fine surface cracking, unclear whether to pillar or paint, weedy field next to arable & behind MoD mast. Helicopter flew over me on S1506 and again on next trig S5938 ! SubMarilyn, revisited Sep05 for number & details.

Once painted white and nestling against a barbed wire fence between two masts. Nice views approaching the trig. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering.

Bit cracked and battered but basicially in good condition, still has engraved lettering plug. reasonable views (but better down the road a bit without masts in the way!), looks like the field is used by horses.
