Didn't quite get to it as not happy to climb a fence to do so. Easily seen from foot path and flush bracket viewable.

Poor thing. Off an industrial estate and behind a fence requiring a gate climb and scramble. Leaning and no views.

My word this is a rubbish place to put a TRIG! No views. I didnt even see any trains go by. Access can be got by climbing the gate 20m to west on path.

I agree it has a definite lean. Behind fence. Behind industrial estate (access through estate or from NW or SE).

On an embankment of the Fawley Refinery railway line behind a fence, which my little legs could not surmount and the path was rather busy.

On railway embankment 1-2m behind chain-link wire fence. Locked gate in fence line 40m NW was fairly easily climbable to gave access. Pillar is leaning backwards (hence classified 'Damaged'), and will perhaps end up at bottom of the embankment in time. At present cap is missing, no plug; front sight hole open. No views.

At side of railway line behind 6' high fence. No cap. A gateway 20m to the NW allowed access.

A bit of fence-climbing to get to this one. Why is it that the previously empty footpath suddenly became busy as I leapt over the other side of the fence? Felt very conspicuous - bit like being in a zoo! (I imagine).

Spent some time faffing about in Rushington Business Centre after entering from the main A35. Eventually took next turning off eastbound into Spicers Way. Then an easy walk into Wally Hammond Way and easy discovery of trig. Fence fairly easy to scale - trig has centre plate missing, otherwise in good condition.

Easy find but getting at at over a 5ft chain link fence was a tad awkward. Good condition, plug missing an area of buched and brambles.

Winter conditions make it possible to find as there are no leaves on the trres.

vgc, no cap or plug. SW side of rly, 1m NE of 5ft chainlink fence, 38m NW of seat. Took me a lot longer to find start of path, than to find trig. Access to path is either from SE or NW; road to NW has one-way system. (OK it's not that difficult, I guess).

Quite easy to spot (it is now as I've removed some of the ivy) about 5 feet the other side of the fence at the top of the hill 50 yds up from the seat on Wally Hammond Way. You can clearly see the FB from the path but if you're a purist and want to actually touch the damned thing you can climb over the fence about 50 yards past the trig where a branch is lying across the fence. Plug missing otherwise in good condition.

Ditto the comments of others - but I couldn't see it, and certainly couldn't find any way of getting over the 6' fence. It would have been helpful if I'd looked at Kevjtrig's photo before I went, as I was looking for something made of concrete... OS list the FB number as S4449.

Parked in the business park, nipped up the path and hopped over the fence. Trigpoint is totally covered in ivy and is missing its plug.

A chameleon trig, wrapping itself in ivy. Just off a surfaced bridleway, but inside the tall railway fence so unreachable. Can't imagine that there was ever much of a view to other trigs from this low location.

View south along the bridleway. The best view available!
