Parked in the village of Etchilhampton and took the path from the NE, and walked up the hill to the trig. Other parking locations are available (to the S and W of the trig) if you want a shorter walk. Trig was in good condition, original centre cap missing, centre tube filled with concrete, with a splash of white paint on the top, rear sighthole open, all other sightholes closed. Lovely views from up there, very windy with a bit of rain, very muddy paths. I left a 2p coin in the rear sighthole for the next visitor to find. With this trig station done, I have now bagged all the trigs (pillars only) on the OS Explorer 157 map.

Like that immersion heater cap; a novel solution to an empty space. One sight-hole open. Had just been visiting the site of the former Patney & Chirton Station; the old footbridge across what used to be the platforms survives.

Plenty of room to park where the Wessex Ridgeway crosses the ‘yellow’ road west of Etchilhampton village. From there, a short walk to the pillar. When I visited, there was a ‘pikey’ encampment where the two track cross but at 07:30, there was no sign of dogs or people. There was, however, a nice smell of cooking bacon! The pillar is in good general condition, however the centre plug has been removed. It was still misty enough to obscure any views but north and west looked to be the best, probably.

The plug hole seems to of been filled with mud. The pillar stands next to a track separating a wheat field from some grassland. The elevated position gives good views to the scarp of Salisbury Plain in the south as far as the chimney at Westbury cement works. It overlooks Devizes to the west with the wooded hills of the southern Cotswolds visible through the haze. More downs rise up in the north with the grey horse at Roundway Hill and Cherhill Monument on view. Pewsey Vale lies to the east. The hill has hosted elaborate crop circles in the past, none were on display today.
