Hidden in a hedge - would be easier to find in winter!

Parked in School Close in Tarrant Gunville and a beautiful mile walk up on a rare sunny November day. Sadly the views that exist to the east (which is presumably why the trig was placed here) are obscured by the hedge.

Farmer was in tractor grass cutting in the east side where the ROW is, so skirted around the west side. This turned out to be a good thing as this is where the FB is.

Approx. 200yds along the hedgerow of a cropfield from the RoW. Walked past it at first as it is well covered in by the vegetation. Bashed some nettles out of the way to get a picture.

Not too difficult to get to from footpath. Partially buried in hedgerow.

Walked from Chettle taking in this trigpoint, Tarrant Gunville, St Mary's at Tarrant Hinton with its fine Easter Sepulchre, and glimpsing Chettle House (the plum of Dorset houses according to Pevsner, and an outstanding specimen of English Baroque) from the footpath. This pillar is about 200 yards from the footpath to the north, and sits within a thorny hedge so is quite nicely preserved and protected there, with its cap intact. Beautiful day in Dorsetshire, really enjoyed the autumn countryside with its sprinkling of fascinating long barrows.

Passed by while walking from Pimperne to Compton Abbas. Best to approach on W side of hedge as it appears thicker and there is a post directly behind TP on the E side. Had to beat down nettles with a stick to get my photo. Heard cuckoo for first time this year.

Burnbake TP May be hidden by nettles in summer.

Approached along the byway from the E, parking at the 90deg bend in Dunspit Lane. 250m trespass along a hedgerow (stay on the W side) required to find the pillar nestling within. Cleared a number of thorn branches - folding pruning saw and secateurs come into their own again. Pillar is sinking (or ground is rising) but otherwise in good condition; no sight holes visible; original cap in place. Good views E, and N to Cranborne Chase; S & W partially obscured by nearby woods/plantation.

The site was reached by walking up from the village of Chettle. The pillar is situated inside a hedge between two large fields. Newly planted grass was emerging from the ground in both fields and there was a broad strip of dead sunflowers either side of the hedge. The hedge was populated by a number of pheasants and marsh tits (I think). The pillar has a metal cap with shallow lettering and had FB S2448 facing west. The view to the south and west from the site doesn’t really extend beyond the trees and hedges at the other sides of the field. To the north and east the site looks out to a landscape of gently undulating low hills of large fields and woodland.

Took footpaths from Chettle to close to trig point. Located in a hedge though not too hidden, look on west side which has FB facing you. West side field had crop of sunflowers. Retains plug. As an aside not sure where name Burnbake comes from as thers no reference on Explorer map.

We parked at the sharp cornerv just north of Chettle at the end of the track that leads to New Barn. Followed the bridleway and hedgeline to the trig, no problem. The trig is in the hedge with the FB facing West. Plug with indented lettering.
