Parking available on the B3399. The trig is located on a down that commands great views.Tennyson Trail, orchids,songbirds and barrows add value to this pillar. A popular route for DofE walking groups.

Parked just off B3399 , SZ3954485079 . Track-way partially blocked by one of the worst instances of fly-tipping that I have ever encountered ! Walked up track and slightly past pillar ( which is not visible from track) . Pillar is in good condition. Poignant memorial plaque has one brass rivet missing. Outstanding views all around, well worth the modest effort to get up here. On my return trek I was greeted by a pleasant lady driving a Kawasaki utility vehicle, a marked contrast to her two surly-looking male passengers !

Good walk up from carpark by Compton Farm.Sunny day and trig not only in centre of ancient barrows but with stunning views across island, down to the purbecks and across the solent. Deserves at least 9/10!

Visiting a friend on the island and stopped here on the way back from having lunch out - her very first trig! Very hot climb, but rewarded by fantastic views in all directions.

Parked in little car park, through the gate, and up the track. Steady climb then trig is on a mound on the right. Drizzling but good views.

Another sunny spring day, for a circular walk from Yarmouth via the Freshwater and Tennyson Ways, then back across (very muddy) countryside. Great views, including the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth! Pillar is missing cap or plug, E and W s/holes open, but otherwise good condition.

Easy to locate being just off a public footpath and highly visible on the highest point. I parked just off the road on the B3399 where the footpaths cross near Pay Down. Then just an easy walk up the chalk track. Pillar in good condition but unfortunately the plug has gone walk about.

Five Barrows is a Holy site. In the centre of an Iron-age burial ground, and a memorial until at least the 1980's.

Visited on a hazy day when the views were restricted. Cycling up through the golf course from Freshwater was strenuous, but rewarding. Imagine playing golf - what a hoot! Trigs and tumuli seem to go together in this part of the world.
