Bagged as YSM0045 Farley Mount. Pretty straightforward walk to this, lovely monument. Monument has the inscription: Underneath lies buried a horse, the property of Paulet St. John Esq., that in the month of September 1733 leaped into a chalk pit twenty-five feet deep afoxhuntiing with his master on his back and in October 1734 he won the Hunters Plate on Worthy Downs and was rode by his owner and was entered in the name of "Beware Chalk Pit".[1] #8 day#3 Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

Picked a good route up to this one although slightly steep at first. Lovely old monument to a horse right beside the trig which is also a Pokemon gym - result. Started pouring with rain on way back down which made the descent interesting. Cheers.

The pillar stands next to a Grade II listed memorial monument to an 18th century horse on the downs to the west of Winchester. The trig has an OS GPS plate and FB 11621 but lacks a cap or plug. It was easily reached by paths from a car park for the nearby Country Park. There was a wide misty view over the surrounding down land.

Iíve certainly been here before, canít think why Iíve never logged it. Anyway, I parked at the start of the track and took the short, uphill walk to the pillar and monument. The pillar looks to be structurally sound albeit a bit bruised around the edges. The centre plug is missing and the resulting hole has not been filled. Just right for dropping a GPSr into. Good views on a clear day but this morning it was particularly hazy.

An interesting location with some extensive views across the Hampsire countryside. On a mound nearby stands an unusual monument, believed to be a replacement for a folly originally built in 1740 to commemorate a horse. The structure bears two cast iron plaques, each of which displays the following text: "UNDERNEATH LIES BURIED A HORSE THE PROPERTY OF PAULET ST JOHN ESQ THAT IN THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER 1733 LEAPED INTO A CHALK PIT TWENTYFIVE FEET DEEP A FOXHUNTING WITH HIS MASTER ON HIS BACK. AND IN OCTOBER 1734 HE WON THE HUNTERS PLATE ON WORTHY DOWNS AND WAS RODE BY HIS OWNER AND ENTERED IN THE NAME OF "BEWARE CHALK PIT"."
