Centre Missing. Parked by 'the butts' gateway to behind the houses, uphill past the first 'top' with clump of trees to the second clump, pillar over a fence about 100m further on.

A splendid viewpoint if I could see past the freezing fog! Access was made via the footpath to the west.

The pillar is highly visible but accessing it needs a bit of 'creativity'. I was hoping to be able to access it from what appeared on the map to be a track above Lower Butts but could not find it. Eventually asked at the under construction large hillside building and was happily pointed in the right direction through their grounds. Pillar is situated by a stand of trees in a cultivated field. Everything in good condition except for a missing plug. Lovely view point.

Walked over from Garway Hill. Came up from SW and left along the track that comes out at Quarry Farm. Beautiful views, not just at the trig, but in most of the area.

We took the footpath to the south west at spot height 232. Up to the top of the wood then follow the field edge (which has been conveniently mown) and about 20yds through oil seed rape at the summit. Nice hill. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Had to fight my way through rape to get to this one. Fantastic view from up here. Always needed an excuse to climb this little hill and now I had one.

Ignored very strange public right of way and approached from track to south-east. Awkward fence to be negotiated. Weather very wet and windy so didn't hang around.

Pleasant walk to top to find pillar with remnant white paint in short grass beside clump of trees. Excellent views.
