Had to walk bike most of the way as its all slightly up hill if you come along Warren Lane track. Dumped bike with broken gear cable in the car that I had parked in carpark and thought it would be a simple walk to trig. Oh No. Had to climb fence and navigate Electric wire fencing inside that to get to trig. Now to find a Halfords and get a new gear cable. Total ride 41miles today.

Lovely view from here. All sight holes were open. The plug is missing from the top, exposing the central hole down into the pillar. To gain access, you have to either climb over the fence from the car park, or find a hole in the hedge from the nearby A272.

Parked here to walk across to Hazely Down; noticed field was under stubble, so a chance to remedy my previous UbV log. Being used as a launch pad for a remote controlled helicopter on our return. Good westerly views on a wonderful sunny day but broad crown of hill restricts other directions (better from road!) No cap or plug; all s/holes open; otherwise vgc.

There is a car park alongside the field in which the pillar is located. On the day of my visit it appeared that the crop in the field had been harvested. However, there was a tall fence topped with barbed wire in the way, and I didn't fancy the climb. From other logs it would seem that there is easier access from the main road. The pillar is clearly visible about 100 yards across the field, and appears to be in good condition.
