160m ESE of the eastern ramparts of the IA hill fort, located on private land although access doesn't seem to be a problem. Pillar has lost its central cap and has no plug. RHS sight hole is open. Extensive views N, E & S; W obscured by the hill fort.

Detoured here from a local caching loop. Pillar in good condition with views to be had through about 270 degrees.

Lovely late Autumn day in Herefordshire. Walked up to this trig as a slight diversion off a local geocaching circuit. Nice views all around, especially today as it was clear and bright.

The pillar is situated by the side of a track through a grassy field on the eastern slopes below Capler Camp in the Wye Valley AONB between Ross-on-Wye and Hereford. It was reached by a short walk from the picnic site near Capler Lodge by means of the Wye Valley Walk along the southern ramparts of the Iron Age fort. It has FB S7284 but lacks a cap or plug. Ridge Hill could be seen in the east and the trig looked across hazy farmland to the west.

Couldn't find Fownhope Farm Shop mentioned by the Cyclist. As others, parked to SW at Capler Lodge which not only has plenty room to park but is a delightful picnic spot too

Found near the end of a very humid day's walking, mainly on the WVW. Nice area, though views not spectacular.

Easy to locate and access. Visited while supporting walkers doing the Wye Valley on a nice sunny day with some good company.

Folowed the route and parking hints from Rhayder Wanderer. So it's not an army camp nor a Butlins but a historical camp - I was being a bit slow today - no wonder I never saw a soldier.

A nice walk up from a marked car park up and passed the camp. Trig surrounded by sheep until we arrived with the dog! The return walk below the camp passes through what loks like a private drive. The 'Way Mark' is right at the far end of the drive. The third walk of three Trig visits today. Beautiful weather. Me, Mum, Jon and Hadley.

Alternatively park on the B road outside the cottage just S of the Capler Farm turn and walk in up the slope from the NE on a well pitched footpath. Agree on the views from here.

Bridgeman sums the route up pretty well. Plenty of sheep about. Missing plug.

Best reached from the picnic site south of Capler Wood. Follow the Wye Valley Walk via Capler Camp to a deserted farm. Follow the track downhill behind the farm to trig point.

I'm amazed nobody else has been here. It's just off the Wye Valley Walk on one of it's most picturesque sections, and very close to some great views over the river. Lots of very inquisitive sheep.
