Found this while on a night time navigation training session with Kent Search and Rescue. Not much to see from the trig itself, well grown up trees surround it as per other logs. There is an opening in the wood to the North where I could see lots of twinkling lights, views to be had in the daylight.

Stopped of for a short break on the way to the Kent Beer Festival in Canterbury. I used the very convenient car park to the north east of the trigpoint and walked up the gentle slope through the woods to the pillar. The pillar is in good general condition with the exception of the missing centre plug. The woods are pleasant enough and there is a cleared view towards London close by.

Nice views, and the bluebells were still in flower. Unfortunately the area was a mess today, left overs from a barbeque - I had to tidy up a bit before taking my photo. It would help if a bin was provided near the picnic table.

The country must have been a very different place in 1935. The viewpoint information board at the top of Holly Hill does a sterling job in explaining to the layman the purpose of Trigpoints as well as identifying the landmarks from the viewpoint. Unfortunately I would suggest that the landmarks are probably only visible between October and March inclusive. The sign tells us that back in 1935 we would have seen two other Trigpoints from this site - well times have changed and nature has taken over there are no views from here. Incidentally I found the viewpoint board before the Trig and started hunting around the surrounding bushes and ferns. It was only when I emerged that I spotted the Trig about another 25 yards further along the path from the viewpoint. Sadly it is another Trig with the centre cap missing otherwise everything else is present and in good condition.
