Cycled up from canal at Pewsey. Followed ROWs to trig. It is in a small, newly planted copse. No views. Trig has red paint patches. Saw farmers harvesting the crops. Had to watch out for tractors, with full trailers, zooming down the ROWs. Its easier just to get out of their way.

Road sign from village to NW - Milton Lilbourne - says road "unsuitable" but not so. Drove to end of minor road and parked SU 201590 (Pump House) as advised by local resident.

Fairly easy to find inside a small wood which restricts views, but there are great views close by.

Red-patched pillar, open cap with all sight holes open. No views within the woods, but just a short jog northwards there is a lovely vista as appreciated by William Cobbett on the 28th August 1826 during one of his rural rides when he sat on his horse 'for half an hour' admiring the scene, ' though I had not breakfasted'! Not much has changed since his time, except for the ubiquitous pylons. Also visited the nearby Giant's Grave Long Barrow.

A very pleasing reddish hue to this pillar, almost granite-like. A short trespass required to access as no public row to it. Farmer was ploughing his field as I did the trespass and he didn't even bother to pass the time of the day with me! Parked at the end of the minor road south of Milton Lilbourne, where the metalled road ends and it becomes a by-way. Pillar is located in an open wooded area standing on a prominent plinth. It had a beech tree trying to cosy up to it, but the secateurs managed to see it off! In good condition other than the plug is missing; all site holes open. Some views, but mainly farming country.

The pillar stands inside a narrow copse between two fields on a downland hill to the south of Marlborough. The site was reached by means of the track starting from the end of the metalled road from Milton Lilbourne. The pillar has patches of red stain and stands on a one foot high plinth. It lacks a cap or plug and has FB S1906. The view from the trig is restricted by nearby vegetation. From the field to the south there is a wide view over undulating downland. The field to the north of the copse looks across to the Marlborough Downs on the other side of the Vale of Pewsey in the north and a lower, flatter landscape of woods and fields to the north east. Nearby the Giantís Grave Long Barrow on the rim of Fyfield Down has a fantastic panorama to the west.

Not in very good condition. Slightly hidden in trees. Long barrow (Giants Grave) nearby well worth a visit - can see top of Salisbury Cathedral on clear day.

As others,parked south of Milton Lilbourne and via permissive paths.Initially looked on the south side of the trees as shown on my old map but there are new plantings and much thick undergrowth.Round to the north side and found the blocked off entry.A faint track going off to the left,round the fallen tree and a bit of searching found the trig.Still has the red staining.Much more overgrown than in the photos.No views of the outside world from the trig.

Easiest way to find this one is to cross the fence by what looks like a horse jump and then head to the left.

As Mickandshanethe permissibe path is a countryside stewardship agreement linking the rights of way to the access land at giants grave. Slightly buried in copse and possibly easy to miss in the summer

We parked at the end of the dead end road that goes south from Milton Lilbourne and then took the track (which is a permissive footpath) straight to the trig. The strange reddish patches might be some kind of algae. Plug missing.
