A spooky visit. The coastal walk heading NE from Yarmouth showed some very interesting housing locations. This pillar is located behind a residential holding.

Called at The Heights, but no one in. Didn't think the owners would mind me going round the back for the trig & Tump summit.

Having read previous logs, called at 'The Heights', very friendly chap let me access through his ground to scrubby woodland area behind where trig is located. Cleared ivy, bramble and nettle to find pillar in good condition; cap missing, composite plug; 1 sight hole open. No views.

Plastic cap. Lady in house was very friendly. Has lived here for 30 years running her small-holding. Now livestock are no more and access to pillar is through the barn to avoid the worst of the nettles.

Asked at the house and the chap there took me to the trigpoint,very overgrown,so much so did not see any cliff edge,when returning to my car had a sign on the window complaining about my parking so if driving up be careful where you leave your car.

Take the drive (rough track) to the Heights and at fork (ornamental boat) keep far right onto concrete track and (presently) yellow bungalow . Lady most obliging and being concerned for my legs in the nettles, allowed me access thru' her cowshed. Trig easy to find in sparse wood (thank you God) and did not look to be in any danger of falling off a cliff to me.

Have had to say that I could not reach this one the best I achieved was getting to within about 150 metres of its plotted location. I should have read some of the earlier logs before making my attempt. However wherever I went was blocked off with impenetrable undregrowth, no access and locked gate. Normally I would return with the additional information that I have now acquired but am unlikely to ever be on the Isle of Wight again and by logging this one as an attempt I will have completed all the IOW listed.

My final pillar on the IOW and was hoping that it would be straightforward....not! Having driven to the top of Cranmore Road I thought it would be easy. Now must offer thanks to mickandshanes log, absolutely spot on. I visited Halcyon and the gentleman there said it was fine for me to go and visit (GPS was showing 0.08 so knew I was close!!) met a lady in a car just up track who apparentely lived in the caravan but after I explained that I had already asked and smiled nicely(well as good as I can muster!) she was fine and pointed me in the right direction.Pillar in brambles and has views of the Solent through the trees. Given the proximity to accomodation I think it best to ask and not upset the residents especially as they are absolutely fine with people visiting.

vgc, sunken old brown plastic plug. In trees behind house as per Mick & Shane's log: householder happy to show me the trig although slightly bemused as I was apparently the 3rd in 6 months! View across Solent to Lymington, as he pointed out.

(147) My last one on the Isle of Wight, after trying to fall off the side of a cliff, I decided to try the easy option and ask the chap in the house if i could have a look. That resulted in a 30 minute explanation of trigpoints. Anyway it's still there and quite a way from the cliff edge so should last for some time to come.

We parked at the top of Cranmore Avenue, the unadopted road that heads up to the coastal path. We searched to the east and west and couldn't find it as kevjtrig says. In the end we went up the drive, which goes off diagonally where the coastal path turns the corner, to the two houses (Halcyon and The Heights). The chap in the house to the left was in his garden and was very helpful, taking us to the trig. He said that he had lived there three years and that there had been no slips in that time. The trig is a couple of metres back from the edge so might be OK for a while yet. Good views over the Solent. Plug replaced with some sort of metal insert.

I couldn't reach it. My feet were cut by brambles trying to do so. Reached the cliff edge and assumed from the landslips that it must have gone over. I wouldn't like to own one of the nearby houses - clifftop one day, beachside the next!

On the cliff edge adjacent to private land. No easy access to this one without crossing private land.
