Cycled along another rather bumpy BW to get to this one. The soil around here is very sandy with loads of rocks in it, very inconvenient of it. Easy to hop over fence by corner of the field where the houses start. Then up grassy hillside to Trig. Nice views.

Last trig of the day, always time to squeeze one more in! Started on bridleway (TQ 00202 30956), very very muddy, nearly lost boots and got totally clarted in mud. Once on the path to the trigpoint the path improved apart from one small muddy section, I could hear the farmer in the farmyard with his digger but I wasn’t concerned as the route looks like a well worn local access track.

Bridleway gives easy access to often crossed fence at SE corner of field, then up fence line to summit. Grazing sheep, dull and overcast but rasonable rural views.

From Durfold Wood via the Sun Inn in Plaistow - which doesn't do food on Sundays so our 6 miles afterwards were rather a random walk fuelled by very good cider ... Reasonable views east from N to S Downs (W blocked by a chicken farm); significant population of rabbits; metal cap, shallow letters, W s/hole open, remains of white paint, vgc.

No bees! Having come from Stag Park and Peacock Farm it was good to find only cows to deal with. Parked outside the gate and walked up the hill, Trig is at the very top, just over the brow.In good condition and good views. *** Complaint from land owner to web site owner 16/9/16, Asked to remove pictures of the beloved trigpoint.... what a shame! "I have had visitors on my land taking photos of our trig point and posting them on your website. These persons have NOT been given permission to either enter our land or take photos of our property and then publicly display them on yours or any other website thus invading our privacy. Could you kindly remove all such photos from dating back to Jan 2008 from when we owned the property."

We parked in the parking space in front of the council houses to the east of the trig. Took the bridleway south for a few yards then hopped the fenc and up to the trig. Sheep pasture. Nice views. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Bagged this one while out bike riding near Plaistow.Its not that hard to find but is in someones field.There was no gate and nobody around, so no harm done! The pillar is in good condition and still has a good amount of paint on it.The views are good in most directions from here.

Fairly easy access across a field from a footpath. Good views all round and no sheep today.
