Car park to NW, short walk on what appears to be a farm track, not a RoW but plenty of dog walkers so perhaps a permissive path. Pillar VGC just to S of track in scrubby area; off-set spider with engraving; cap missing, asphalt plug; RHD sight hole open. Extensive downland views S, E & W; N obscured by Beaconhill Beeches.

High point of a circular walk from West Meon. Somewhere to stop for lunch. The South Downs Way is now routed past the trig point from the Beacon Hill car park, then down to the White Way via a permissive bridleway... more changes coming in the near future (according to signs).
