Train to Amberley for a five hour walk taking in four trigpoints, and returning home by way of Arundel Station. Up from Amberley Station onto the South Down Way to find this one just inside a field, with an easy climb over the fence (no barbed-wire, pleasingly). Pillar has open cap; one s/h open.

Parked at the parking space to the East and followed the South Downs Way. Having not had lunch I decided to carry a small picnic to it thinking it might be on open ground, but it isn't. You have to climb over a fence to reach it. As others have said the views re terrific, especially South to the sea. Me 193m

Camera on gorillapod on the fence post used the fence post to hold the camera - a little rush to get to the trig in time for the self timer!!

Situated on Rackham Hill with views north over Arun Valley and Parham House, and south to the coast. The pillar is in an unfenced field currently growing fodder beans, and is easily accessed through a clear path in the crop. Slightly damaged as the plug is missing and full of rubbish, and a couple of chipped corners.

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! I have only vague memories of this yomp, which included three trigs, but the yellow highlighted symbols on my 1994 Landranger are ticked and there's blue highlighter indicating route completed, so it was done. I'm estimating the date as being in the early Summer of 1997, when I clearly did a lot of trigging, mainly recorded in my (sadly lost) little blue book!
