On arriving at Swanmore Farm, I received permission to view the trigpoint from a very friendly woman. Followed the dirt track uphill as far as possible till it ends next to a gate leading into a small covered reservoir. Trigpoint is on the other side of a wire fence inside the compound, but you can easily squeeze through. Pillar is to the right of the gate under a tree, next to the fence. There is very little to see from the pillar, but if you walk up onto the reservoir there are some lovely views

Location Taken up on the reservoir, you can see the gate on your right, the trigpoint under the tree to the left, and in the far corner of photo you can see Swanmore Farm©HOTELOSCAR2
Trigpoint As you come up the track from farm, at the top is the water reservoir compound. Before you reach the metal gate, if you look on your right you will see the trigpoint on the other side of fence©HOTELOSCAR2

Asked at farm house and no problems. Views are better on top of the reservoir than from the pillar which is against the fence.

Asked at Swanmore Barn Farm, which is a livery stable, advised to look for Wendy or Frank the owners. Wendy very happy to give permission and instructions on how to find it. Up the track and between the gate and the fence pillar on the right. Good views from pillar - even better from the top of the reservoir.

Took the direct approach and asked permission, readily given with detailed routing instructions on how to get to it! In a Portsmouth Water Co compound but low security fencing so easily accessible. Original cap in place, indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open. Marginal distant views SW; all other directions obscured by hedgerows etc.

Very good lunch at the Baker's Arms in Droxford (sadly no freebies for those called Baker!), then walked up here and onwards in a northerly loop via the Wayfarer's Way. Beautifully sunny, cold winter's day, so good views of the Solent and I of W south from the trig, other directions rather obscured by trees. Pillar is rather covered in moss and ivy, and sported a 2p piece! Large hole being dug in the reservoir compound immediately to SW, but I suspect pillar will be OK. Metal cap, shallow letters, W s/hole open, exc condition.

Parked to NW where footpath crosses road and walked up this bast what looks like a mountain bike track then followed the hedges past an old quarry to the trig. Condition unchanged.

We asked permission at the farm to walk to the trig, passing a field of Shire horses on the way. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
