Managed to squeeze in and park near the memorial in Shute, then followed the tracks all the way to the trigpoint. Very dry on the top section today but could see how muddy this could get!

Although in wood it is easily found - up ROW and turn right along wide track on ridge top.

No view (in any direction!). Not far from an intesting building on the Beacon.

Tricky little chappy this one ! First of all we walked up the steep hill from the road just past Shute village. Spent a lot of time wandering around and NOT finding it. Went back having driven up Shute Lane from the village (4x4 only !) armed this time with GPS, albeit a road version - worked a treat !! Trig blends in nicely with the trees; the first time of looking I think we were so preoccupied with negotiating a huge puddle that we missed it. Trig is about 5-10M on the NW side of the puddle filled track.

Puddles seem to be a permanent fixture but there is some recent(ish) felling 10m to the side of the track. then its just a matter of luck. Parking in the village of Shute

Hard to spot even with GPS. Its on the slope (west) side of a rutted forest track covered in ivy, moss etc and blending in very well with the trees.I spotted it behind me about 5 yards away with my wife shouting from the track go left or right!

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, 10m W of track. Took a while to find - detour around long deep puddle interferes with distance measuring - but actually just visible from track.

Parked by village telephone box. Adjacent Parish Noticeboard has an enlarged OS map showing trigpoint.

A tricky one to find; it's only 10m from an unmarked track (on the OS LR) but is well camouflaged by ivy etc. Happily my search pattern (no GPS) worked, although I did phone home and ask my wife to read out the earlier log - not that it helped much! I came up from the Kilmington side and the track is extremely wet.

A wet track. The light at the end of the tunnel is water!

We parked at Shute near the entrance to the big house. Nice walk up through the wood then turn left at the top. It's just off the track on the left hand side and quite difficult to spot (we walked straight past it initially). Plug with indented lettering.
