A good walk from St Margaret's at Cliffe up to the pillar which is tucked just behind the fence on the golf course. In the distance is the Dover Patrol Memorial which is where we headed off to.

Parked at the Dover Patrol Memorial, too much mist across the Channel to see the other one at Cap Blanc Nez . The old Coast Guard Station/Bluebirds Tea Rooms is now closed and is on the market for 3.5M ! Beautiful morning with clear blue sky, cold gentle breeze, just right for a walk. Flush bracket is difficult to see, very close to the fence with vegetation between. Looks like I am the only one who visits this pillar !

Quite surprised to find how much the site has been cleared since our first visit in 2006, the pillar is now clearly visible Thought at first that the new fence was to keep the general public out, then discovered that there is no fence at all on the east side of the green and realised that the fence is to keep the golf balls in. There is even a sign warning golfers that the land outside the course (i.e. OUR side) is out of bounds !!

Like others I parked at the Dover Patrol Monument to the South then along the Saxon Shore Way along cliff top then West along the side of a huge field, then along edge of golf course to the pillar - it is located just on the course side and the western edge of the course - good condtion hard against what appears to be a new fence - nice walk over and good views, if you look away from the golf course.

I followed an excellent marked cycle route up from Walmer toward St Margarets, then doubled back on foot on footpaths.Arrived unexpectedly at pillar as entirely hidden in hedge/undergrowth from direction of approach. Far side open to golf course.Good views along coast.

Parked at Dover patrol memorial & followed footpath along cliff & beside golf course to eventually arrive at pillar. Probably quicker to cut across field but view was worth it. Trig in good condition with cap & FB. Nice views all around.

Pleasant walk from the Dover Patrol Monument on National Trust Land. Nearly missed this in the trees, oh and watch out for stray golf balls!

Its right next to Suzanne honest!

Found as part of a Geocacheing sortie, if you were not looking for it you wouldn't find it.

Found this on second attempt (last Sunday's efforts, when we decided to do without GPS, proved the need to brush up on our map-reading skills ). The pillar is now embedded in the boundary hedge between the field and the golf course, making accurate GPS fix difficult. Nothing that an axe and a strimmer wouldn't fix ! There are good walks all around here - but mind the cliff edge. We parked at the Dover Patrol Memorial.

Overgrown !!
View from near the trig. -- Harvested field, English Channel and French coast on the horizon.

Cache GCJGQ8 is hidden behind this trig! We parked by East Valley Farm but that probably wasn't the closest place to park. It was dark and raining by the time we got here so we didn't stop long!

In the middle of a hedge on East Hill next to a golf course. We walked to the trig from the war memorial for the Dover Patrol at Bockell Hill. Plug with indented lettering.
