I tried to go along the Ox Drove to get to this one but it was too muddy and wet. So went down the road and then up the hill from Mead End. I can tell its the start of the season as cycling up the hill was hard work and i had to push the bike at times. The Trig is roadside and sinking!

Very easy roadside bag. Pillar is in good condition if a tad short.

Had to dig a little with my walking stick to uncover the FB, sight holes are most likely filled with dirt. Cap is missing and no plug.

Nice open views for this roadside trig. Had to dig out the flush bracket a bit to take photo.

Easy to find on the side of the road but had to scrabble around to unearth the flush bracket!

Roadside location on the minor Howgare Road over Knowle Hill, grass verge wide enough for parking. The pillar is partially buried as verge has built up with dirt etc. FB is still visible, just - needs to be dug out a little. Sight holes are presumably sealed - with earth; cap is missing and no plug. Extensive views, but not inspiring.

Like others had to dig a little to reveal FB number - freezing cold today; how appropriate that I'd just been playing Sandy Denny's Winter Winds in the car: beautiful song for a beautiful winter's day. Also Bushes & Briars, full of winter imagery.

A roadside pillar, so very easy to locate and access. Also one of the closest to home; one of 5 within walking distance, and I have sort of by-passed it, leaving it for the future, which turned out to be today.

The pillar is situated in the fence on the verge of a tree lined minor road as it crosses the summit of Knowle Hill. The adjacent field was empty; the field the other side of the road was occupied by pigs. The pillar lacks a cap or plug and has FB S2601; it was buried up to the bottom of the arrow on the flush bracket. There is a good view eastwards over downland to the New Forest in the distance. There is a reasonable view westward from the other side of the road of more downland ridges and the slopes of nearby Marleycombe Hill.

Roadside location easily visible. Views were limited by poor visibility but normally good in this area. pillar sits low in earth and I had to dig a little to uncover FB number. Plug missing. Does not look as though ever painted.
