Parked at entrance to the track from the north; easy walk to pillar which has an asphalt-filled cap, and one sight-hole open. Just twelve minutes there and back.

Parked at start of a permissive path 500m to N of trig. Good farm track to pillar which was buried in hedgerow before clearing nettles, elder and thorn - see photos. Cap missing, asphalt plug; rear sight hole open, side holes have been sealed but cement disintegrating, front remains sealed. Good views E, others direction partially or totally obscured.

The recesses in which the hooks sit seemed deeper than usual, and, due to the wet weather, were filled with rainwater. The FB faces the track. The pylons were buzzing particularly noisily, due to the wet weather I suspect. The pillar is also kept company by a nearby electricity pole. The views are, as others have said, nothing special.

Top of the trig With bonus thorns.

Pleasant stroll from N as the day light was fading. Not enhanced by line of pylons near by. Vgc.

We parked on the corner of the minor road at spot height 129. The farm track leading to the trig is a public footpath although it wasn't shown on our map (1998 Outdoor Leisure 45). The trig is in the hedge on the track side. We disturbed a herd of 13 fallow deer as we apprached the trig, 12 does and 1 stag, which disappeared into the distance at a rate of knots. The views are nothing to write home about and the electricty pylons and a large manure heap do nothing to enhance the location. Tarmac plug.
