Bagged as YSM0525 Riddles Down. Could have been much easier but Mr U2 couldn't quite recall where he parked so dropped me off at the bottom of the hill, I then had to walk much further than I needed to cross the railway line, once at the trig Mr U2 had come to his senses and met me at the correct parking which is at the end of a lovely flat path that runs from parking to trig. I think he is my secret personal trainer lol #5 day#5 Total day#4 #13 Total day#3 #12 Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

From Purley Oaks via Housing estates and Bridleway Situated close to a Track amongst woodland the Trig is in Good Condition with all sight holes and cap filled the FB faces 32`. Limited Views to South. Has a surprisingly rural feel after the tramp through housing estates!

Nice walk up from Upper Warlingham station. Kept to the downland rather than follow the London Loop. Good views a few metres away from the pillar

After son's football match against Warlingham, I couldn't resist the short detour to come and bag this one as YOSM525. Another geocache within 20ft into the bargain!

mickandshane's 'easy parking on the corner to the southeast' and all the surrounding roads were completely filled with cars on the school run when I first arrived. Half an hour later when I returned they had all gone. Pleasant walk across the common. The trig has had some sort of black oily liquid poured over the top.Otherwise it is OK. Onward to Croydon FBM.

Officially this is the only trig on the whole 150 mls or so of the London Outer Orbital Path (LOOP) - we know, we tested this out over a year or so and it's an excellent walk despite lack of trigs! Visited on a nice sunny day whilst completing the 15 mile section from West Wickham to Coulsdon. Right by the path with good views of the local downs

Pillar is right on path. Like Ockley Hill, this pillar has no 'S' before the digits.

Actually visited this before finding this site! It's used as a clue in the Doris' Riddle Cache located nearby. Lovely views across the downs and valley. Pillar in good condition although had a little faint daubing on it from vandals.

An easy find on the side of the bridleway after a nice walk along Riddlesdown. No noticeable damage apart from slight knocks on the corners.

Situated beside a well-used public bridleway, this pillar is easy to locate. It has a little patch of faded graffiti on it, and a small area of damage at the base.

An easy one to find, located on the side of a bridleway. Despite recent heavy rain, the path was firm underfoot.
