Peered through a gate at the side of the road but no view due to the summer growth of trees and hedges

Same route as previous logger, thorn hedge getting difficult and no secateurs - again! Pillar is on NW side hedgerow and currently being used as a fence stay. Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; front, left & right sight holes sealed, rear not easily accessible.

I'm not sure why this area is called a heath for I saw nothing that signifies that. Simply lush green fields scattered around a countrified suburbia. Climbed over a farm gate, then scrambled through a thorn hedge to find this pillar.

Easy hop over the fence and walk to this one - Pillar located just through hole in hedge - slight damage looks like it been hit by a tractor.

Bagged this one without research as we came from Hoads Hill. Did as previous log and used the gate opposite the cream house in the long lane, otherwise your on the wrong side of the hedge. Surrounded in thorn bushes but thankfully the hedging had been recently cut, but still a painful and bloody experience trying to get on top of this one. In good condition.

Mid hedge and overgrown. dont enter by the locked gate on the road junction but instead go up the lane and over the locked gate opposite a house this puts you in the correct field.

Ensnared in ivy, on the edge of a flat pastoral field that wasn't much like heath (heaths always have bracken or heather!). FB on wrong side to read and it was a bit trespassy so I didn't bother going round to the next field.

Writing this in Aug 2018. Just dug out an old map and found notes on a few trigs I did in 1998. I remember this trip well, on NY Day as part of a resolution to do more trigging, I got up early and drove around a circuit of six North of Portsmouth. This was the fourth, and my notes say, "Got cold wet feet in a waterlogged field walking up to this one. Sun rising beautifully through wintery trees" Get me, all poetic.
