Parked in layby and took the short steep path ( called Defra Conservation Walk) to top field. Follow the field edge to find trig in small copse.

I parked approx. 300m west of the trig, where there is a path which does not seem to be on the OS map (but is on open street map), an easy short uphill followed by a clear level path beside an arable field margin. The pillar is hidden in a small hawthorn copse with a clear little trail the few paces off the footpath to it. Pillar in good condition.

Followed small slippy path from layby up through the small wood, then along the field line to the copse, views before the trig but as others have said none from the trig as it is surrounded by shrubbery. Note to self! - Really behind with my logs, should try and keep more up to date!

For this one, you can park off road almost directly west of the pillar. Thereís room for a couple of cars and thereís a DEFRA Conservation Walk from there that will take you directly to the trig-point. Be careful you donít walk past it as itís hidden in a small copse on the hill top. It is painted very white so you shouldnít miss it really. Itís complete and in good condition with all the metal in place. The views are pretty much obscured to the east but OK in other directions. Itís worth the short walk.

Certainly very white. It appears that nearby TP 4521 - Long Hill - was painted by the same people at the same time, quite recently - why? Ran to trig along the permissve path from the west, which leaves the road just north of the entrance road to Daisy Hill Farm. Very foggy autumn morning, so no views.

Lovely summer evening. Parked next to a goml sign on a public road, next to a footpath sign. Bright sparks are they not? Payback time came in the form of a permitted route signed off the bridleway to the pillar. The pillar was very well hidden in a damson and hawthorn thicket, and was in good condition and intact. Wildlife was in the form of loads of rabbits, a cuckoo, and a near miss of a couple of wierd looking munjac deer on the way out. A great way to hit 4 figures.

Easy access, just about 70 yards off a bridleway. However, quite hard to find as it is buried in a small copse and in the summer it would be quite hard to spot. All intact, including central plug. However, when I got there the little copse was sheltering a small herd of wild fallow deer - a lovely stag and 5 hinds. I don't know whether they were more surprised than I was! A real bonus! No real views at all but good marks for wildlife - there was even a buzzard soaring lazily overhead.
