Bagged while on circular walk from Southbourne around Hengistbury Head. Pouring with rain and blowing a gale so did not stay long!

Rivet in SW corner of concrete seat-base slab. Seat is in remembrance of one George E Bridger. Not sure how the OS can describe this as a surface block.

Good job there is a bench nearby as you need a rest after the excitement and the strenuous walk to this one!

My first surface block, but now I know why I don't waste much time on them - as dull as the views are reasonable! Nice walk up the beach afterwards to the real Hengistbury Head in bright sunshine but a gale blowing.

The bench is back, but the blue triangle has almost disappeared.

Just to clarify things (again); the T:UK database is not in error: Warren Hill is the official OS designation of the pillar (FB S2569) on Hengistbury Head. Hengistbury Head is the official OS designation of an unremarkable Rivet in Southbourne.

Hengistbury Head and Warren Hill are the wrong way round! Hengistbury Head is a pillar and has a flush bracket :)

A boring rivet, only found with the aid of the OS sketch. No idea why the OS refer to this as "Hengistbury Head" when it is actually in Southbourne. The previous logs here really refer to TP6753, the trigpoint on Hengistbury Head, which is known to the OS as Warren Hill!

This has to be one of the best views along the south coast. Bring your binos and a camera.
