Parked on Brand Road. Followed the directions kindly provided by @THE CYCLIST. Thank you. There is a large chunk missing on one corner at the top. The pillar is a primary. One final note, this pillar appears to have been moved as it is now in open ground well away from any trees and hedge. Furthermore, the flush bracket is now at ground level. Moreover, looking at previous photos, it certainly looks like the pillar was in a different location back then to where it is now. Hence, my view is it has been relocated within the compound - to a better area in my view compared to the previous one

Thank to all the previous logs for making this now an easy find. The trig is a very miserable place under the tree. A quick in and out thankfully no barking dogs.

The only challenge is access over the two metal gates. I climbed over the fence and turned green due to algae. The pillar has peeling original paint. One corned is chipped off. Zero views. A tragedy for the pillar. I picked my way over gates gingerly easing giant brambles out of the way.

Further to The Cyclists helpful info., once on the track I found it easier to walk a further 6m past the gates (which led to a very overgrown area) and climb over the wooden fence. Then straight ahead to pillar in trees

Not shown on OS 1:50,000. but noted on OS website. Checked on this Website as present and looked at Peregrinus's notes. Rode up and down road trying to decide which trees he was referring to. Occupants just leaving bungalow that seemed most likely. The lady said that there had been a pillar but that it had been removed. Let them drive off while having a drink and studying map for onward route wondering whether to nose round in their absence. Saw man exit next house along pushing steel I-beam on trolley and made enquiries of him. "Yes it's just across that ground in hedge"! Look for large gates with "Peacehaven" in large metal letters. there is a track to fields immediately adjacent and a few feet along this are two low metal gates on the right. Cross these and straight across the rough ground beyond and the pillar is just hiding in the cypresses beyond your side of the fence!

Top slightly chipped, plastic cap; no change since 2004 except now completely hidden in thick W-E cypress hedge, in outer garden accessed via gate from S. NB its not at roadside but c. 20m back. Revisited for photos and to check status in view of reported disappearance.

We were in the area doing a few local caches and the location of this trig is shown on Memory Map, right by the road, and as we were driving right past the thing we thought it would be a nice easy find, a quick search and no trig so we went on our way caching, it was only when we arrived home and checked it out that we found it was missing...must check first in future before trying to find something that's not there.
