Parked at end of lane to Wick Hill farm. Then walked across field on footpath towards trig point. Had to walk along tractor tracks in corn to reach it.

In unplanted island in arable crop. Path marked on map doesn't exist so its along tractor tracks. I've been here before, I remembered as I slithered down the steep earthy bank on its E side.

We first tried the steep slippery so called footpath! Had more sense and decided to walk across the field from the other side.

Very windy, wet & muddy so decided against the vertical path - footpath from SW just about visible through the stubble at this time of year.

Path just about visible at this time of year!

Nice spot on top of the hill though the vertical path up was fun with a two year old...

Left bike at fields edge as crops were growing. No sign of the path that should be here so followed the telegraph wires as this is where the path should go.

Parked at road junction on the Hangers Way and then walked up the hill to the FP which led me up a steep slippery slope onto the field and up to the summit and Trigpoint. The leaf-covered slippery slope was extremely steep and in wellies I was in danger of going A o' T and ending up in A n' E. Only managed it by hanging onto tree roots - another mini adventure.

Parked to SW of trig at end of minor road. Footpath leading directly to trig doesn't exist. Pillar in middle of arable field planted with a cereal crop. Found in good condition with previous loggers 2p coin, also an additional 1p coin on the centre cap! On large plinth; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open, RHD side plug degrading. 360deg views.

Did not fancy the steep and slippery footpath that everybody else has gone for, so approached this one from the SW. Parked at the end of the minor road at the sign for "Lower Wick Hill Farm", then walked NE across the field. There was supposed to be a public right of way, but there was no path, so we just followed the overhead electricity cables to the trig. No crop in the field at this time of the year, just grass. But what will happen in the summer when there will be crop? Trig in good condition with original metal cap, left sighthole open, all other sightholes closed. I left a 2p coin in the left sighthole for the next visitor to find.

Bagged while on circular walk from Selborne. We also took the mountain goat path! In field that had been ploughed recently but ground dry. Good views.

Approached from footpath to the North.....signs says slippery and steep ! Bloody health and safety nonsense i thought.....but seriously it is setep and slippery and i am not joking ! If you want an easy option take opposite end of footpath from the south by farm , but if you fancy a mudslide back down its quite fun ! Must be one of the steepest marked footpaths have ever been on away from the mountains ! Pillar good with three deer nearby as a bonus.

Looks simple on the map this one, have another look at the contour lines! :) The footpath to the East is passable but not for everyone except a mountain goat, i got up it but it sure was a challange in the rain! I would suggest it is one of the steepest footpaths in this part of the world, once you're at the top and got your breath back it is an easy walk along the field edge to the point where the map suggests the footpath heads off past the pillar, there was no path apparent through the corn so took a diversion along and onto some tractor tracks. Pillar in good condition and is located about 50m into field - nice area loverly views and dead quiet.

This must be the steepest footpath in Hampshire (perhaps the south of England) taken to reach the pillar. There is even a warning sign to say that the footpath is steep and slippery - it wasn't too bad ascending, grabbing branches & trees, but coming down was very tricky. It didn't help that I was wearing wellies. Ended up sliding part way down on my backside in mud,glorious mud! The Monsoon season continues:rain,rain,rain,rain....then more rain!

I parked to the west near Wick Hill Cottages and then just used the mapped public footpath to the pillar. I say 'mapped' because there is nothing on the ground just the start of a cereal crop. But, with the judicious use of tractor tracks I reached the pillar which was visible from some distance away. It is in good condition and still retains an original metal indented lettered plug. Just a nice rural location.

Pillar in good condition. Metal plug. Approached up steep bank very slippery and dangerous, would not recommend this route. Footpaths very indistinct in this area.

This is set on a substantial concrete plinth in the middle of a field of what must have been peas, judging from the remnants of the crop. In good condition and fine views to Selborne Hill. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering

Do not try to approach this trig from the east - the ROW is the black run of footpaths, a real scramble up it. Circular walk up the Hangar's Way from Selborne and generally round back to the SW. Trig in middle of field (uncultivated on our visit) and in good condition. First few flakes of snow fell as we visited.

Dont try to approach on the footpath up the steep bank to the east, as it is completely overgrown. Plug with indented lettering.
