Near road with layby nearby, Trig in tree line. Some kindly forester has even set back the fence for easy access!

Circular walk from nearby car park on a beautiful sunny day, lovely autumn colours, and a good stop off at the Royal Oak in Fritham. Rather uninspiring location - views south but north obscured by trees. Asphalt cap, NE s/hole open, SW and SE buried, some cracking of top render but otherwise good condition.

Doesn't look much like a bottom to me (land as flat as a pancake) and there was certainly no pounding going on. This pillar sits in the middle of nowhere, with a neat little fence arranged around it. Short walk from road across scrubland.

Agree with Jonglew that this pillar is just inside the Wiltshire boundary. Spent the afternoon finishing the excellent Carol Shields' first novel (Small Ceremonies), then fancied a short forest walk, hunting a trig, & an evening pint at the Cuckoo, Hamptworth - all achieved.

Yet another simple bag, located within 100m of the road and with a convenient pull-in almost opposite the trig, although trig is not easily visible from the road. Listed as being in Hants, I suspect this one is actually in Wilts; it's on the Wilts side of the fence line that forms the county boundary. Anyway, it's in good condition; ground level is rising so not easy to determine state of the sight holes without digging, which I didn't. 1 is definitely open and 1 definitely sealed (beneath the FB), other 2 indeterminate. Cap has been replaced with tarmac plug. Good views, if uninspiring, to the South and West.

Number 3 of four today. Having come from Bramshaw this was another easy one to spot. Stopped in lay by just up the road and walk on foot across gorse. Trig in good condition with fence around it as previously stated. Another plug missing.

The trig sits on the side of a small boundary dyke between New Forest heathland of Hampshire and a Wiltshire hillside plantation; the fence makes a small diversion around the pillar. It has an asphalt plug and FB S2632. There are fine extensive views across New Forest heaths and woods to distant hills on the horizon from the layby on the adjacent road but these views are largely obscured by trees from the pillar itself. Rooks were flocking around the tops of nearby trees.

Visible from road, layby nearby. Large number of cattle came over to car, they thought it was feeding time and looked most disappointed! Large expanse of heath to south. Some repairs to concrete at top of pillar. Plug missing, asphalt filled.
