Good view, but trig now surrounded with nettles which I had to beat down.

Parked opposite the Sports Ground in readiness for my walk to visit three or four Winterborne villages. The Sports Ground has a forlorn air about it; there is no cricket square marked out and both cricket & football pitches lie buried beneath tufty grass, with the pavilion & dressing rooms in a state of decay. Pity. Not so the pillar which has its cap in place with shallow indented lettering, three sight-holes closed and one buried.

En-route to Litton Cheney Trig Baggers weekend. 50m from roadside on boundary between cricket ground and arable field. Good condition with remnants of a white paint job; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; front sight hole needs digging out, other 3 closed. No views on a misty morning.

The easiest access of all my weekend's trigs - short stroll from a parking space right opposite the entrance to the cricket ground. Fine views S, and a colony of striped snails in residence. Metal cap, shallow letters, S s/hole buried, all others closed, vgc.

Nothing really to add to previous report visits other than to confirm that it is still there. In good condition and still retains an original metal indented lettered plug.

The pillar is sited next to the boundary fence of a playing field, close to the pavilion; it is painted white, has a metal cap with shallow lettering, an OS plaque and FB S5908. Close by to the north is Milton Manor with Milton Park Wood beyond; to the southeast Charborough Tower can be seen in the distance and in the far distance the glint of a sun lit chalk cliff; the Purbeck Hills are to the south.
