Bagged as YSM509 Camel Hill. Had to detour back to this as we'd had a navigational mishap the night before. Quick find and also bagged the nearby masts as they are an Intersected Station

It was a tricky turning off the A303. Parked in the pull in just past the pillar and quickly bagged it.

A tricky turning off the A303 indeed. there's room to pull in a car just past the trig point and then the trig point is easily visited. Not the most exciting trig point it must be said!

Parked up on the side of the adjacent lane, got the pics from the lane. No need to pop in to the field as it's all visible from the tarmac. Bonus as this is a YOSM virtual geocache too!

Found as YOSM 509. Pulled off A303 and parked close by. Access to TP through field gate. Tricky to turn around on narrow lane so we had to continue until a suitable turning point.

Yet another Dorset trig with no redeming features! Located just inside a field close to a minor road that in itself is just off the busy A303.

A brief jump into the field to conclude my first full year of trigpointing - 142nd log. Very easily accessible for anybody travelling along the A303, jus make sure the heavy traffic is going in the opposite direction as it was for me on a Sunday evening.

The pillar is situated in unoccupied pasture close to a minor road just off the A303; the foundations are partly exposed, it has no plug and has FB S5887. The view is blocked by nearby trees; the ridge of Corton Hill can just be made out through the trees to the east and nearby to the west are transmitters and the A303.
