Was met by farmer in vehicle.At first he was very grumpy saying, "This isnt a ROW!" I said I was looking for the Trig on his land. And could I please search for it. Once he knew what I was up to he gladly gave consent. His whole demeanor changed. Its by the fence next to the wood that hides it from a quick look. No views.

The pillar was completely hidden from view from the field edge, so nipped over the nearby gate and into Oldwick Copse, through the trees to easily find it nestling against the fence. Clambered over the barbed wire fences and cleared an opening into the field. This clearing will presumably be quickly overgrown again at this time of the year, so fellow trigpointers you've probably got about a week for an easy trouble-free visit! Cleared all the ivy from the pillar, but we know that Mother Nature is waiting to reclaim it.

Parked roadside opposite Oldwick Farm. Lots of metal detectors and their human handlers in the field, so didn't ask permission. Pillar is hard against a fence on edge of Oldwick Copse - covered with moss and ivy. Cleared some, but not all. Cap missing, asphalt plug; sight holes undetermined as beneath ground level. Views N to South Downs.

I had a look at this a while ago but considered it a little exposed on a busy day - tried again today, when i arrived there today the farmer and land owner was chatting at the end of the path to the pillar, permission was readily given with and explaination of where to look - not sure of this is the same land owner mentioned by Clanfield Rambler - Pillar is in good condition and located against fence and covered in ivy - farmland views.

From map expected to cross a field to reach, but there's a nice track across to wood, then along edge of wood and easily located. No one about to object, as per earlier visitors logs!

Walked straight up the track, was greeted by a man with an axe coming towards us, thought we were going to get turned away, greeted him and we were on our way. Bare rught at end on lane, Trig against the hedge row and fence.

Circumnavigated field around woodland edge to get to this one. Pillar on edge of wood and somewhat lost in the nettles,ivy etc. Arable field. No sign of ever having been painted. Plug missing, asphalt filled.

Walked up the track but was told in no uncertain terms by the miserable git of a landowner that we were on private property. We were about 2 min walk from the trig but he would not let us visit it and followed us in his vehicle all way back to our car then parked behind our car until we moved on.

We parked at Oldwick Farm which is now a posh stables etc with a cafe/restaurant. We took the treack opposite which seemed to be well used judging by hoofprints etc but isn't a public right of way. The trig is against the fence surrounded by nettles - a bit neglected. Nice cup of coffee back at the stables. Tarmac plug.

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! My map notes say, "Ask at the farm. Trig on woodline up unmarked farm track. Views to Goodwood Hill."
