I parked in lay by opposite Hurst Lane (TQ203552). Hidden in bracken, tricky to locate but had a good rummage. No clear visible paths when you get further into the wood.

A nice spot surrounded by woodland. Not too difficult to find, at the back of the highest point in the wood

National Trust wood. Parked at junction of Church Lane, Hurst Land and Clay Lane and headed up through the woods. Not difficult at this time of year.

Decided to bag this one on return from a trip to Twickenham Stoop rugby league. Quite a lot of effort required for a pillar that is not much more than 100 metres from the highway and at a modest elevation. Stout footwear/old clothes advisable. Pillar is not apparent until you almost trip over it ! For parking refer to trigangel's advice.

To find this, Park in the layby opposite Hurst Lane in Church Lane. Walk up footpath opposite Hurst Lane until it almost joins Church Lane again. Style on the right takes you into Oyster Hill Wood, sign indicates welcome, as long as you play nicely. Follow the path that quick goes in to bracken. Follow the well trodden path until you come to Holly trees on the left. Go between trees, or circle round, and the trig is on the right. Picture taaken in March.

A bit of a detour through long bracken to reach it. No view due to the trees though.

This was the first outing with my Satmap Active 10 GPS. I have waited a long time for a device like this and it is fantastic , proper O/S maps at Landranger or Explorer scales. The photo that shows my route is the Landranger 1.50000 scale. Anyway without my GPS I am not sure that I would have found this one as it was in a very dense thicket with no obvious paths. The gate through which I entered told me it was Nower Wood nature reserve and unauthorised persons should not enter. Despite this I took a chance as no-one was around. Once I had located the Trig it was in good condition with a blank Spider centre. The woods hinder views in every direction. The O/S website lists the computing year as 1945 and the height a/s/l as 186.88 metres (613.12 feet).

Easy access, on a National Trust permissive path. Plug has a plastic replacement. FB has the usual 'Raised S' for this area. Traces of paint. N/S sightholes open, others closed. No views at all but a lovely woodland area with the bluebell carpet just dying away.

Pillar found after a walking a rather tricky overgrown route from an Oyster Hill footpath. It sits amongst the trees and therefore only limited views are available. Trig in good condition.

Walked a path overgrown with giant ferns. Quite spooky, a bit 'Land of the Giants' ish. Pillar is in a clearing in the woods.

Parked on road and walked up bridleway 200 meters through woods (full of Bluebells this time of year)Pillar is in good condition and has modified cap - no views due to density of woodland.

GPS led me to a clearing with plenty of dry bracken but no pillar. Thought I had a search on my hands. Then I walked between two holly bushes and there it was.

Old Man on a course on restoring historic buildings, so I'm off with friends for a walk from Epsom Downs via Tadworth and Headley, back via Oyster Hill. Trig easy to find in Feb, and in good condition, but surrounded by trees so zero views.

Slightly off the beaten trail though this delightful National Trust wood. Probably much easier to get to in January than July.
