Walked up here from the nearby YHA. Very rainy and misty climbing up to this one. Mist obscured all views, and top was quite wind swept. I imagine it's nice here on a clear day.

Roadside layby parking E side road at Itford Farm. SDW leads up to the trig, a short cut can be taken to circumvent the big loop the path takes southwards. Pillar sits in open downland on the egde of what may have been a dew pond. Cap gone, no plug; LHS sight hole open. Extensive downland panorama.

Trig number five of my SDW stroll. Great views all round of Lewes, Newhaven and the Channel. The wallking is great despite my heavy pack, with a cooling westerly breeze in the hot sun. Walked on to Housedean Farm campsite for the night.

Enjoyable walk from car park to E after visiting Firle Beacon TP, along crest of Downs. TP by circular dry depression - Red Lion Pond - next to old plough. Plug gone. Fine views N to Lewes and the Ouse valley, and W along downs (but had forgotten camera again !). Warm sun breaking through, hot air balloon rising, and larks, larks, larks.

I parked at Firle Beacon Car Park and walked along the South Downs Way for about 1.5 miles - Pillar in good condition apart from missing cap and plug, and is located on the edge of an old Dew Pond (long since dried up). Great views in all directions.

Pillar is located on the side of a downland dew pond, which is dried up at the present time. If you approach from the east, the pillar is visible for a long way. This is one of the best trigpoints I have encountered on the South Downs for views. You can see up and down to Ouse Valley to Lewes and Newhaven.

In good condition, exactly where it should be. Views little hazy but generally good. Includes (possibly 3rd party) addition in a plug in the last sighting hole, see photo.

Excellent location with views of Lewes to the North and Newhaven and the Channel to the South. Even the pond remains although long dryed up. Note that the central cap of the mount has been removed (see View to the South).
