Took the footpath near golf club entrance marked Ruxley 1M then right shortly after. Don't know if this field is normally better kept as it currently looks like a disused pitch and putt. Followed OS app to thick trees and bushes and scrambled through. Dog retraced steps exactly to get us back out in to the open! Found half a dozen golf balls.

From golf club car park. Followed edge of one of the greens to the woods, then a bit of a battle through saplings and bramble to the trig. Pillar retains original cap,deeply indented lettering; 'BSM' style FB; front and rear sight holes open. No views.

More difficult to find than expected. Approached from Ruxley Park golf course. Permission to visit was readily granted by the groundsman who even let me leave my bike in his enclosure. Few golfers around today owing to the heavy morning rain and water logged grass. Skies however were now clear and the sunshine bright. The trig pillar is under the group of pines on the knoll to the south of the groundsman's enclosure. I reached it by following the outside of the bank on the E side of the enclosure for 80m to the edge of the trees / vegetation. After a bit of a fight south through scrub and lots of brambles (a golf ball grave yard) I reached easier ground through trees and on up to the trig point. The map indicates an area 1m higher to the SE but the trig point appeared higher to me. No views from the trig point but good views N from the golf course.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters, BSM style FB. In blackthorn scrub at summit: moderately dense hawthorn scrub to N, with plenty of brambles. I found 12 golf balls in scrub! which I left on the big boys tee (5th IIRC) - hopefully caused some amusement. Fair few golfers around mid morning - probably best early or late if from this side.

I approached this one from the Orpington Golf Course - Parked at the top club house and the went up through the woods and brambles (believe me there's plenty of them) Found pillar almost lost in the trees. Pillar is in excellent condition no views due to tree cover.

I initially thought I'd been thwarted by this private location in the grounds of a broker's spread (with pointy fence and CCTV all around). However, as I turned away, the owner arrived and kindly showed me to the back of his grounds where the trig was sitting safe and sound :-)

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! This was the first on a long trig-bagging trip from home (at the time) in Biggin Hill and my map notes say, "Hardly worth the effort. At back of private house - Pilgrim Manor - in undergrowth. Trig now a pile of rubble." More recent logs prove that I was wrong!
