Easy to locate, but access dependent upon state of crop. Today there were clear tractor tracks which went very close to pillar, so got there and tip toed the rest. It seems partially buried and, like Easton bit tired. Visited as a short detour off the ECP, Sussex section.

Bagged as YSM0074 Selsey. Walked up the ROW and then diverted into field to visit the pillar. Picture with tractor in the background reminded me of the the sign as we entered the field "beware food production area", worried I might be attacked by a dangerous sprout. #9 day#2 Total day#1 #13

Just had to revisit the old chancel of Church Norton once again in its delightfully secluded setting next to Pagham Harbour, then a return to pillar s4221 which seems to have sunk somewhat since my last visit in 2000.

Day out to the seaside to celebrate the Old Man's birthday, and a lovely walk down from RSPB Pagham on a wonderfully sunny day (including first tortoiseshell butterfly of the year). St Wilfred's church also worth a visit. Some limited damage to one edge, all s/holes buried, plain plastic cap, otherwise sound.

My home trig, being born and raised in Selsey, although left there over 40 years ago. Visited this trig when the headstone was being put on my Mum and Dad's grave in the Church Norton cemetery, sad day but the trig cheered me up. Field was ploughed but no crop sown so easy access. Pillar has some damage to one edge and sports the OS plate giving a phone number to call if there's any damage (photo of the plate is from the Ben Hutig trig at top of Scotland in case someone can tell it's not from this trig).

Just off public footpath, so a quick nip into the field [avoiding crops!] to log the pillar. There is a chunk missing out of the N/E face. Plastic plug replacement. OS anti-vandal plate. No paint. Yellow lichen spots. Moderate all round views - but heard a cuckoo whilst logging!! What a bonus!!

I parked in the car park at St Wilfreds Chapel and walked back down the lane and then along the footpath to the large field in which the pillar stands. A tractor was fine harrowing so I waited for it to arrive at the end of the field and asked if it was alright to proceed to the pillar. permission willingly given. Had I been a week later the seeds for the proposed crop of herbs would have been sown and my request would have been denied. Had a long chat with the tractor driver who originated from Dunbar in Scotland. Apparently the ploughing, harrowing, planting, weeding and harvesting is all programmed by means of sat nav technology so that the tractor follows the exact same route on each passing. In fact programmed to miss the pillar! Apart from a few cracks the pillar is in reasonable condition and has one of the 'Monument/GPS' plaques attached to it. Original plastic plug missing but replaced with a plastic on. Flat area but a very interesting visit.

This pillar is located in a field approximately 150 feet from the hedgerow. There are crops growing so I asked at the farmhouse if I might follow the tractor lines through the crops up to the pillar. They said that they would rather I didn’t as the field had just been sprayed with herbicide but they wouldn’t mind me walking up the edge of the field on the ‘wrong’ side of the hedge to get as close as I could. In deference to their wishes, I did exactly that. The pillar looks to be in good condition apart from a chip out of one edge… probably clouted by a farm implement. It carries the usual OS plate that is common to all pillars that are now designated as ‘Passive Stations’.

As you will see from our pictures this one still stands. We were uncertain weather to tackle this one in the dead of night with the lat report saying it might be missing. Drove down Rectory Lane then turned left into Grange Lane, drove past the houses on the left for a short way and parked in front of the gate. With a full moon to guide these covert triggers we had to step over some fencing to bag our 58th trig. Hard to see in the dark, and were pressed for time, but covered in moss and at least one chunk missing from a corner. Trig is in a muddy field and would be fairly hard to do during the day due to the close proximity of the overlooking houses. We had a lot of fun doing this one, a bit like doing Hedhone Farm, lol.

On Our Spot Not a great picture but stood in the middle of a muddy field with 2 dogs and a torch, we did well to even get in the picture.©hussyhill

As stated in previous logs the pillar is located in a field under cultivation. At the time of my visit there didn't appear to be any crops, but it did look very muddy. The footpath runs to within 150 feet of the pillar and that is as close as I got. The GPS plate is clearly visible and the pillar appears to be in good condition.

The trig is buried in thick mud up to the top of the flush bracket number so I had to find a stick to dig down. Quite trespassy as the sign at the start of the path says "Food production area" and there's a house overlooking the field. GPS plaque. Good condition considering it's in the middle of a field and the farmer can't get rid of it... Plastic plug

We carefully traversed the muddy field to the pillar. During ploughing, mud had been pushed up the pillar obscuring the metal plate. We removed as much mud as our fingernails permitted, but not enough to uncover the number. The concrete has been damaged about halfway down one edge of the pillar, hence "slightly damaged".
