Followed ROWs from East. Easily spotted. A lovely warm sunny day. Clear views centred on NE. Would have been last pillar on OS sheet 149, but for a failure to find one in hedge at Turkey Tump two weeks ago, making that even more irritating!

The view here would have been very nice if it wasn’t for the eight foot high hay bale stack piled right next to the pillar.

Access difficult as no public row. Parked at Durlow Common and walked W and then SW on tracks marked on the OS 1:25k. Got accosted by a farmer, but he proved helpful although did warn us the owner wasn't friendly to trespassers, but we persevered and made it to the ridge. Returned SE via Jones's Copice. Trig is suffering some damage to the top.

parked at the church in Stoke Edith and followed the gated track upto the ridge,did both Marilyn tops just in case new technology sometime in the future proves 1 is a millimetre higher than the other.

Did a long walk up from Marcle Hill.The final stretch was along a muddy,bramble covered track which ended in a very tricky gate to climb into field where trig sits.Excellent views despite being 5m short of summit.This - Seagers/Bunker Hill - should be made a ROW.At least i've now done this Marilyn,which i drive past everyother day!Potential for much higher score if more accessable.

Same parking and approach as mickandshane. Lots of pheasants around which have the unerving ability to launch noisily into flight when you are about three feet away. Walked a little further along the ridge to get the Marilyn top too.

From the SE along track with horsey sign 'Private: Riding restricted to permit holders only'. Step over fence to trig in undergrowth at edge of field. Slight damage to top of trig.

Approach the same as MickandShane.There has been some recent clearing along the ridge so the path is nice and clear.Saw no one so no problems with whether i should or shouldnt be there.There are extensive views to the N and some glimpses through the trees to the south.

We parked at the entrance to the footpath to the south east. Up onto the ridge then followed the very overgrown track to the trig. Nettles in abundance around the pillar. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Approach from path to south along ridge. Not a public right of way. Extensive views to north and east. Summit is on field edge. Saw a couple of deer. Highest point of ridge is a Marilyn, but not actually at trig point. Corner of pillar has crumbled away.

Sadly folk are now getting chased off from here, but I managed a few visits before United games in more liberal times.. We were in the League back then as well. Just off the old Ridgeway above Stoke Edith, almost certainly a lost RoW, Need to get this one back from the gits. Good view eastwards.
