Took advantage of Army holiday and walked up gravel path to where it meets the plain. Easy to locate. Expansive views of the plain.

Walked up from Ansty Hill to take advantage of the Army holiday. It is just over the brow of the hill from the track on the eastern edge of the field. Saw my first swallow of the year at Quebec Farm on the return.

Easy access from byway to south, across open pasture. Much evidence of cows, who I suspect are responsible for the significant base erosion (a good 6" of base is exposed, in striking contrast to g4wsb's pic in 2015), and the slight lean. Centre and one s/hole open, but otherwise the pillar is in vgc, with good all round views across the Plain, even on a very grey day.

In the military firing range hence our visit on Boxing Day when all the soldiers must be on holiday. Leaning slightly. Good views

Located 350m into Imber Range (part of the MoD's Salisbury Plain training area) so there is no public access to this trig, but... Good parking can be found anywhere along the byway that heads north from the B390 at Ansty Hill. The pillar is leaning a little, 3 sight holes are open, 1 sealed. Plug is missing and centre hole is open. Have marked this slightly damaged due to the lean and missing plug, but otherwise it's in good condition. 360 views to be had, but nothing startling. Note: the army have changed their policy on access to the ranges, whereas they used to raise and lower the red flags as and when live firing exercises were happening, they now leave the flags flying all year round - except at Christmas/NY and Easter when the public byways are open for access to Imber village and elsewhere.

This is a retrospective log, hence the different condition of pillar. It was good in 2007. It is taking me along time to get my backlog entered on line. Visited while walking the Imber Range Path, which is a very good walk with some excellent views.

Cycled up to the range limit with every intention straying by the 350m but the crump of a battery as I arrived and a vehicle visible in the distance pursuaded me otherwise.
