circular concrete, no FB .Mesmerising views of channel tunnel activity even for a non train-spotter. Lovely views on sunny day

After sitting watching the vehicles on and off the trains we realised we better bag the pillar - no flush bracket.

Gale Force winds meant we only stopped here long enough to admire the fantastic view of the Eurotunnel Terminal below before hurrying back to the warmth of the car!

Stopped off on the way to France. Pleasant sunshine for a short stroll along the North Downs way from nearby Virtual cache.

Located on the North Downs Way with exceptional views over the Channel Tunnel complex. We stopped for lunch here in lovely sunny weather. The giant train set below absolutely mesmerizing, could have stayed there for hours, but the other half dragged me back to the reality of trig hunting! The pillar is the only cylindrical one I've seen in England or Wales (common in Scotland on the higher paeks), no FB.

Surprised to be only the second person here this year and even more surprised that the first is my friend Chas! I haven't seen one like this before either. My first trig in Kent!

Good viewpoint and an interesting shape for a trig. Not seen one like this before.

Parked at the road junction about 150 yards east of the pillar. Modern circular pillar whose appearance is not helped by the graffiti on it. Superb views of the Channel Tunnel terminal more than make up for it.

Clear day so spectacular views of the coast and particularly the Channel Tunnel operations - train spotting seriously detained our NDW walk. Never seen a cylindrical trig point before.

Good panoramic views over Folkestone and The English Channel from Fairlight (Hastings) round to the French Coast. Bird's eye view of the Channel Tunnel terminal. The walk between the trig and the parking space overlooks the Shepway Horse cut into the chalk downs.

Easy located as only a few feet from the road, with near by lay-by. Pillar is in reasonable condition, plug missing. I don't think this was the best example of concrete i've ever seen. No views today as thick (freezing) fog.

Good views over the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Folkestone for which this cylindrical pillar was built. There's a lay-by just passed the parking spot which is opposite the pillar. This trig never had a Flush Bracket, but the spider is conventional. Plug missing.
