I parked to the south west by the post box, then along ROW up through the wooded area then steeply up the field edge. Pillar is in good condition, interesting fort next door, great evening views from here.

Easy to locate and access. Visited on a nice sunny day, with clear views for miles. A really good pillar, the type that makes any effort involved in visiting them worthwhile. Previously visited on 3 Jun 2009

Used to visit here regularly when I lived in Salisbury years ago, so a welcome return to at last log this pillar. Fabulous Neolithic, Iron Age & Romano-British earthworks in and around Hambledon Hill, with spectacular Dorset scenery. On a circular walk from Shillingstone.

A very fine trig for my 350th on here. Stunning all round views on a warm and sunny morning, spent some time spotting the trigs of my other logs for the weekend. Plus an excellent ancient hill fort well worthy of exploration. Asphalt cap, all except NW s/holes open, otherwise vgc.

Found whilst completing a walk from Stourpaine up to Hod Hill, Hambledon Hill and Shilling Stone Hill grabbing geocaches and TPs along the way. Very exposed on the Hill Fort.

We parked in Child Okeford (what a lovely sounding place name) to climb the hill and bag the HuMP and trig. The top of the hill has extensive earthworks including iron-age hill fort, long barrow, cross-dykes etc. A herd of friendly and inquisitive cows were grazing the summit, they didn't bother us, overly. The sun was shining, the views were excellent - it was a fine day.

Visited on a day-long walk to see five trigpoints. A rainy morning with mist on hilltops (August!). No view today, but Hambledon is one of my favourites, so a score of 7/10. Then on to Down End Farm...

Visited during a walk that included Hod Hill. The pillar is sited at the crossing of two bridleways within a Neolithic Camp. Its foundations are exposed by about a foot all round; it has a rough asphalt plug and FB S5901. Brilliant hilltop with massive views: the western edge of Cranborne Chase from Down End Farm to Melbury Hill; a wide expanse of the Blackmore Vale; Duncliffe Hill; a hazy Alfred’s Tower in the distance; Okeford Hill lies to the southwest with the various hills of the Dorset Ridgeway stretching into the distance; Hod Hill lies close by to the southeast and numerous other hills and ridges disappear into the haze. The Neolithic earthworks were barely noticeable but the Iron Age Fort at the north of the hill and the Iron Age and Roman earthworks on Hod Hill are phenomenal. A large portion of the hilltop is a NNR and a SSSI.

Good views from this close to hillfort location. Walked up from Stourpaine via Hod Hill. Interestingly an old map 1:25000 First series ST81 Shillingstone shows another triangulation station very close(ST845124).On looking around at this location nothing could be seen in the grass. Was there once another pillar?

Its within the Neolithic camp on Hambledon Hill, although there's not much of the camp to see. Your attention is drawn to the Iron Age hillfort at the northern end of the hilltop.
