SW side of hedgerow, need to access the field to get to it. Becoming encased in brambles, cut back enough to photograph the FB, which faces into the hedgerow. An original centre cap is retained, lightly indented lettering; front sight hole open.Good views, to the S mainly.

Field side of fence. Very wet and muddy path from drive of house. Views of rolling Downs. Pillar hard to spot when approaching from SE on path.

Found while doing the Penshurst geocache series. I couldn't see the FB number because the plants were too overgrown.

Trig Point is located at the edge of the field and is easily accesses. Flush Bracket was sen by trampling down the vegetation.

Parked adjacent to the pub and followed the public footpath to the pillar. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. Faded white paint. Sightholes closed. On edge of arable field which is badly in need of some rain! Good views to the W/SW.

Easy walk from the pub follow the public footpath signs. No need to try to jump the fence, walk past the trig to the gate at the end and you can walk back to it.

Parking and easy access from footpath to west - a nice flight of stone steps gets you up the bank into the field. Arable field - stubble at present. Plug with indented lettering.

In a crop field, but i followed a reasonable well trodden path from the footpath, to the trig. One of a few trigs today i visited today with nothing but the GPS, certainly gets a few strange looks when you make lots of turnings in small lanes while looking for a good location, all the while just trying to get the distance on the gps as low as possible and park beside what could be a possible approach.

As per previous log, mount is located at the edge of a field just off the public footpath, and if you try you can get closer than just a few feet as the guy before must have done to get his pics!
