Staff arrived 8.45am (Tuesday) and Gary kindly escorted me to the trig. Said he would mention to Surrey County Council that trig visit times should be added to their website

We had better luck with a visit that others, and a young man explained that the roof to magazines in the fort (under the trig point) was leaking and a number of years ago all the earth was removed, replaced and grassed over. I assume that the trig point had to be moved and placed, more or less, in its original position. However, it is therefore no longer valid as an original trig point. Note that it is shown in position in the 50,000 series maps but not there in the 25,000 maps. See for example the on-line Bing maps. Select OS maps and as the scale changes from 50,000 to 25,000 the trig point vanishes!

Gates open, walked in and up onto earthworks where pillar is locatedPillar painted white, inc FB and is leaning, seems to be sinking into the ground. Member of staff challenged us and stated place is not open to public, but we had photos and GR etc so left then. Cap missing, asphalt plug; 2 sight holes open, other 2 undetermined - below ground level. Good views N.

I parked on the road to the east (although it would have been possible to use the road all the way and park in the Activity Centres' Car Park). The pillar is just within the grounds from the car park and easily reached. I did this without any problem. Pillar is in good condition although the original metal plug has been replaced by an asphalt type one. Not the best location for views.

sign at gate indicated youth outward bound centre, went through gate and up bank past group of teenagers and teachers as i was only going to be there 5mins for photos and take a pencil rubbing of FB with bit of cartridge paper I'd pre cut to size. Immediately a woman came up to me and said, 'Can I help you' Explained pencil rubbing of brass plate and just interested enthusiast of trig pillars. She stayed with me because I hadn't been CRB vetted!! and then saw me to the gate.

Heeded sign from Surrey county council so did not enter complex to reach TP. TP visable from Bridleway to the S. Nearby are some good views of Guildford.

Leaning, slightly sunken? Revisited during the Unofficial Register gathering: a group of us walked in thru the main gate, which was open, Sat p.m. No-one in the office so we headed up the steps and crossed the grass to the trig. A young chap shouted up - Can I help you? We explained what we were doing: he was quite happy.

Saturday afternoon stroll with Craig (after a 'lad's night'). This trig is not on the OS map?! Unfortunatly the trig is in the middle of a fort surrounded by fence with 'Keep off or else...' signs around. We got as close as we could to take photograph.

Thought this one was a no go area to start with, due to high locked gates. Thought I'd have a climb up the bank next to the gates and have a look - the pillar is located on the far side on top of the Fort - bit tresspassy, but hopped down into fort and over to pillar as no one around - Pillar in good condition - nice place pity it's locked away.

This pillar, if it still exists, is in the grounds of Henley School. Lots of wire fences, tall hedges, and "private" signs.
