Small layby on E side road at TQ 4694 3180. Direct from there, although by walking N on the road 60m there's a wide break throught the gorse and bracken. Pillar sits to one side of a circular stand of conifers. It has a very reddish tinge to it; original top cap retained, deeply indented lettering; LHS sight hole open. Views to NW only.

After a restorative ice cream in the car park (11 mile walk so thought we deserved it) wandered on to here. Limited views but those from A A Milne memorial a bit further N very good. Trig has metal cap, indented letters, E s/hole open (has happened since Lathama log in March 2011) but otherwise excellent condition.

Glorious afternoon and it was so quiet and still at this pillar with conifers all round that you could have been in the middle of the Siberian taiga! A red snadstone pillar close to the AA Milne Memorial; half expected Pooh or Piglet or Kanga to come bounding out from somewhere! Original plug with deeply indented letters; sightholes closed. No real views from here but such an evocative spot.

Misty murky early morning in Winnie the Pooh country; parked at Piglets car park and TP just above A A Milne memorial. In small clearing just below nearby high point. TP in vgc - rusty red colour with original plug and sightholes blocked. No view to speak of due to murk.

Trig still in good condiction, still sporting the central plug of the spider. Views are cut down due to vigourus tree growth around this pillar. My First Visit was 26-12-1994 (i was probably only as high as the trig itself), sufficee say not much springs to mind about it.

Set high on Ashdown Forest in Winnie the Pooh country, (AKA "The Enchanted Place"). The scenery and views ensure that it lives up to its name. The pillar itself is in good condition, albeit a little on the grubby side.
