On ring mound. Great views. Possibly visited when much younger as we used to come on holiday to Brighton (by Austin Seven from Birmingham) and Devils Dyke was a popular evening out. Sadly, can't say I remember the trig point.

Parked at the National Trust car park and walked over to the trigpoint. Very very muddy from gate to trig which has been turned into a slurry bog thanks to the many cows who live here. (deeper than walking boots in places). Activated the trigpoint for the WAB net in the howling wind. What a blessing that it wasn't raining.

On a day spent dodging showers, this was the one that caught me out. The heavens opened just as I reached the pillar and by the time I got back to the shelter of the nearby pub, I was just a little damp around the gills. The pillar is in good condition with all the required metalwork in place. The views are as good as you would expect, standing nearly 800 feet up on the Sussex Downs. The pub food is of high quality and reasonably priced. For those that are interested, this is YSM055

I was fortunate to be able to visit this trigpoint in the course of my work. Wonderful location, outstanding viewpoint, perfect conditions. The hillside and the sky full of paragliders and hang gliders, the car park crowded, and this on a week day in November !

Good views all around from trigpoint. Pillar in good condition despite some graffiti on it. Overhead someone describing the pillar as possibly some sort of sundial and thought it polite to let them know what it actually was!

One of the most popular places on the South Downs. Kites, paragliders, beautiful scenery in all directions, the incredible Devils Dyke itself, and a pub! There's a little bit of graffiti on the pillar itself, but other than that it's fine. Check the weather before you go on http://www.devilsdyke.net (registering is free).

Other than the ground eroding around it and the graffiti all over it, the trip pillar is in good condition. The high marks for interest are due to the magnificent views.

Nice easy trig. Hot day with lots of people enjoying the view, although not many seemed interested in the trig!

The Pillar is situated on top of one of the earth banks that form part of the iron age fort now known as Devils Dyke. The views all round are great and access is very easy.
