Sits by the roadside just south of the High & Over car park at Seaford. Easy to find. Walk through the woods to the Cuckmere river valley for fantastic views as well as the huge chalk horse carved into the hillside, you will be standing right on it 50 yds away from CP so look carefully. The Comp pillar is 30 mins walk to the west.

Pillar sits in a pasture on the field side of roadside stock fencing. Parking at the High and Over car park immediately to the NE. A composite disc cap replaces the original; rear sight hole open. Good parking spot for The Comp and Denton Hill trig pillars.

After geocaching along Seaford seafront I decided to head up to the Up and Over car park and take a look at this trig. There are fantastic views from up here and if you take the path to the east of the car park you get spectacular views over the meandering Cuckmere river.

As mentioned this is very easy with a car park right next to it. Views are ok of Cuckmere Haven but it's well worth walking down from the car park to see the Cuckmere meandering off to the Haven and a very different view of a newly rechalked white horse.

Came up here to bag YSM146, the FBM just down the road, but it would have been churlish not to bag this one as well. Used the adjacent car park. Very easy, just inside the fenced field but very accessible. The centre plug has been replaced with a plastic bung bur apart from that, all is well with this pillar.

I wasn't even looking for this one as I passed by en route to Seaford today but had already passed parking place so didn't stop. I probably noticed the pillar first way back in 1974 when I was last working in this area. Stopped by here on my way back from Brighton (work again) July 15 2010, this time to actually look at the trig. This must rank as one of the easiest trigs to visit, it is very close to the road, albeit the other side of the fence, it is adjacent to a convenient public parking space and the flush bracket can be viewed from the road side - beware the electric fence. Location always worth a visit for views and walks.

Looking towards the next trig at Cliff End
Looks clean !
