Looks as if you can drive along the By-Way! you can't blocked by fly-tipping. So opted for the car park and walk, nice enough stroll along. Today the pillar was visible but in waist high corn, so opted for the view from the By-Way. I will return at stubble time. :)

We saw the Trig from the footpath.We didnt want to cross the field because the farmers crop had just to sprout green leaves. Great views across Wiltshire and met some Shetland Cattle on the way.

Good call to go along cycle route 24. Left peddle of bike started to jam up. The bearings must be going. It always the left one. Left 24 at West Dean. Then up rather steep BW to get to BW with trig on it. Saw black dear in fields. Parked bike just off BW and squeezed through gap in veg and over fence. Noting down where it was. I didnt want to have to search for bike for 30mins like i have done before. Took well defined tractor tracks to Trig, that was in nice neat square clear patch. If only all farmers looked after their trigs like this.

Parked in Pepperbox car park and walked up byway intending to access field containing pillar along footpath, skirt around it's boundary and make a quick dash across at the closest point, but took one look at the water filled tyre tracks and having had a bad experience at Devil's Dyke earlier in the year when some of our party ended up knee deep mud decided on this occasion to just admire from a distance!

Parked at the nearby free NT carpark to visit the nearby Pepperpot folly and historic cache, but couldnt resist what I thought would be a short stroll to this trig! However we decided not to go the direct route necessitating climbing over padlocked gates [yet again!] but continued along the track. However there was no access along here to the trig so we continued until a footpath on our right which allowed access to the field in which the trig stands. This field has been drilled [? grass] and we kept to the boundary, and then walked up a convenient tractor path to the trig. Views all around are of peaceful agricultural countryside. We then decided to make our way back to the CP from within this field, over a low wire fence field boundary and duly back to those padlocked gates = a much easier route! Thankfully we werent challenged.....

Access awkward due to the byway being closed. Parked near Eyres Folly (The Pepperbox) and walked over fields rather than along the byway that was being used by construction traffic. Pillar is located in an arable field, fortunately last year's stubble hasn't been ploughed in so despite the mud, not difficult to cross. Pillar is in good condition, other than some light chipping from one of the top edges. 2 sights holes closed, 2 open; centre cap is missing, no plug. Views mainly obscured by woodland etc.

In middle of field, grey and wintry (both pillar and weather!) In next field repairs to oil pipeline was going on, a nearby notice informed me. There looked like one of those oil drills in position. Next, visited St.John's Church, West Grimstead - it still had its fully decorated Christmas tree and crib in place, (not to be removed until Candlemas Day on February 2nd apparently). From there to the wonderful Cuckoo at Hamptworth for a pint of Ringwood. So: a perfect few hours: trig, church architecture, and pub.

The trig point is in a field that could not be entered and is not in itself in a particularly wonderful spot. The nearby Pepperbox Hill (National Trust area) is very attractive.

For some reason I didn't notice this one last time we walked along the by-way (years ago). Its in the middle of a (ploughed) field, didn't stomp up to it.

The pillar was hiding in a field of rape seed; it lacks a cap or plug and has FB S2621. The field was reached from the car park by means of the nature reserve and the byway. The Pepperbox has a cut bench mark on its north face and there are wonderful views both from the reserve and from the byway. Disappointingly trees and hedges limit the view from the trig. To the southeast industry near Southampton can be seen in the distance beyond the New Forest. Part of the surrounding chalk slopes have been designated a SSSI for their flora and fauna.
