Parked on road opposite the lane, and easily found in field hedge. Surprisingly good view to north over to Portsmouth and, if hedge not there, over island. Whilst not obvious from the map, once visited,you can understand why it is where it is.

Parked on main road in gate entrance and walked up the farm track. Through second gate and along the hedge line to the trig.

Lots of urban walking to get here in the searing sun, via Cowes, Gurnard, Northwood & Newport. Pillar partially hidden in a hedge: plastic cap, & one sight hole open. Appropriately re-reading Laurie Lee's 'As I Walked Out One Midsummer's Morning' - my walking journal is not quite in his league though.

Well Hidden in hedge but well done for clearing a way in.

Parked at field entrance NE side road 150m SW of trig. Located on NE side hedgerow, followed tractor lines and field boundaries to it. Pillar had thick cap of thorn completely obscuring top, all cleared away for now. Looks to be in good condition; cap missing, composite plug; all sight holes closed. Extensive views to N, all other areas obscured by hedgerows.

Well hidden in hedge. Feels like a plastic cap - couldn't see for the dense hedge enclosure.

Approached, as others have done, up the private farm track. Then through gate and along the hedgeline. Enclosed by hedge on three sides but one side accessible on eastern side. Everything in good order. Reasonably good views.

Visited this one after Broomlands while killing time before catching the ferry. Quiet Sunday morning. Parked in Buckbury Lane and walked across main road and up farm track. Trig is in the hedge that divides field.

This took some finding as the area is being heavily redeveloped with factory units and the pillar is almost completely buried in vegetation. Asphalt plug replacement. No paint. W/N sightholes open. No views. I wonder if this will survive longterm?

Really struggled to find this one and the Satmap Active 10 proved invaluable. I didn't attempt to photograph the Spider as it was well consumed by sharp prickly unfriendly thicket. The O/S website lists the computing year as 1942 and the height a/s/l at 89.538 metres (293.76 feet).

Walked up and down the field a few times before i spotted it from the other side of the hedge. Very wet day (night).

This is best approached down the lane from the north side. You can drive down as if you are going to the Lavender farm and then park on the corner close to a new farm building. Into the field and along to the western hedgeline. Plug replaced with some sort of rusty metal insert.

Situated in a hedge line on private farmland, no public access although it is close to the farm lane and access is possible along the field edge.
