Anyone know why the position of this trig point has moved? On the 1890 OS map it stands on the site of John Oliver's Old Post Windmill, nowadays it stands about 45 metres to the north.

Windmill site and trigpoint Site of John Oliver's old post windmill and according to the c1890 OS map the original position of the trig point.

Weather too nice to stay indoors so thought we would go out for a walk - lots of dog walkers with the same idea as the car park was packed. Views really good and can also recommend the gardens & tea rooms too!

Nice spot overlooking the English Channel and with fine views E &W also. Remnants of an IA hill fort, it's the the traditional burial-place of the kings of Sussex. Pillar has top cap missing, asphalt plug replacement; all sight holes sealed; no depressions for top loops. A little N of the hill's high point.

Another easy one. Not much effort required for this, oh how we miss a long walk across the downs! Good condition, cap missing and filled with tarmac. Looks as if it was painted white at some time. Lots of dog walkers and people around. Good all around views of coast and South downs. Had a little fun with this one as it was a significant number of trigs that we found, any ideas what number trig this was for us? LOL.

Pillar generally in good condition but the bung is missing and the hole it should be fitted in is filled with concrete - hence 'slightly damaged' report. GPSr gave elev = 235ft. Good views.
