So good to be back on the Isle Of Purbeck on such a glorious September day. The pillar is fine with an asphalt cap & all four sight holes open. Looking back towards the magnificent setting of Corfe Castle, I was gratified to see & hear the tell-tale signs of a chuffing, puffing steam engine as evidenced by the trailing plume of white smoke.

After visiting Corfe Castle a walk up onto the ridge brings you this Trig. Great views - as from many of the trigs nearby. Me, Nat. 120m

"Only mad dogs and English men, go out in the midday sun". Craig and I climbed the sleep slope beside Corfe Castle in the middle of what was apparently the hottest day of the year so far. It was HOT! and I had forgotten to put on any sun cream! The trig was easy to get to in full view near the fence with Corfe castle still just about in view.

Visited while completing the Triple Trig Point Teaser geocache. Phew! You saved the steepest climb for last in this series and it was hot this afternoon! More wonderful views and a few birds of prey about as I walked along the bridleway route to the trig point. Didn't see a soul in the half hour I took to climb up and back down - they were all on the footpaths. With these walks the last two days have been transformed from a long distance business visit into a mini holiday taking in many beautiful locations and lots of fresh air and exercise. Roll on the next trip!

To Studland for our annual bank holiday visit - arrived early so despite pouring rain, low cloud and a gale decided to pay a quick visit to this trig. No views so will have to go back on a clear day (ironically as we descended the hill to return via Church Knowle it stopped raining and the sun came out, turning into a beautiful evening).
