Once the hedge greens up in a few more weeks, this pillar will vanish from view again until late autumn.

Well obscured by thorny bushes of varying kind. No views North from the trig, but nice views otherwise. Pulled over on the road to East and had a quick sprint up.

On S side of hedge but almost consumed by Blackthorn and Brambles. Easy access along grassy field margin from St Lawrence Shute Lane. Good views seaward.

Parked in Week Lane to north of trig and walked up lane to footpath into field then along field boundary to Trig point. Another season and this trig will be lost again in the hedgerow.

Parking at field entrance on NE side minor road opposite covered resr. 10m or so on PROW then over b/w fence and follow field boundary up hill to summit and trig. Pillar being seriously encroached upon by young thorn trees, no saw with me only secateurs, so limited on what could be cut back. Pillar found in good condition; cap missing, asphalt plug; rear sight hole only open. Extensive views in arc from SE-NE; other directions obscured by hedgerow.

Hidden in hedge! Easy (ish) to spot at this time of year, but I imagine quite difficult in spring and summer.

Zelly at Dean Farm Whitwell I was quite distracted!

Passable view of mainly arable land. You cant see the trig from the clifftop footpath but there are two stiles you could use. Both are from the cliff top path, the first is pretty much directly south of the trig so youd need to cross the field uphill. The second (recommended) is where the clifftop path descends to cross the road at St Lawrence Chute, there are steps leading up/down to the road and at the top of the steps is a stile. Follow the field edge to reach the trig. At the time of this visit the trig was pretty buried in vegetation and the field had recently been ploughed.

We walked up a very steep road on the up way to this trig. But once at the top it levelled out and was a nice stroll along to it. Pillar is nearby a couple of masts.

Visible and accessible if you are prepared to cross a fence off the nearby footpath. Could well be overgrown during the summer months. Reasonable views. Pillar is in good condition with concrete plug.

Hired a cottage at St Catherine's Point for a week - wonderfully sunny day so walked up here via Niton en route to the pub in Whitwell for lunch. Yet another IoW radio mast / trig point combo. Accessed up the field boundary from St Rhadegund's Path (to the east), what a great name. Being early in the year not significantly overgrown, but not great views either
