Parked on wide grass verge by farm entrance, found a politely written note on the car asking me not to park there again. I replied, equally as politely, and depositied the note in their letter box. Anyway, back to business - the pillar sits on an unfenced field boundary. An original centre cap is retained, raised lettering; rear sight hole open. A memorial bench seat has been sited immediately adjacent to the pillar. Extensive panorama.

Passed this trig while on a circular walk from Bridge, throug Patrixbourne and Adisham. All in good order and a useful bench to sit on in front on it.

All intact. Adopted bench in front in memory of Jane Paterson, with a planting of daffodils for good measure. Nice restful spot on the high point on a foot path.

Visited on 6 mile walk after setting out from Adisham . Very easy to find on footpath, with added bonus of a bench right by trig to admire decent views of the Kent countryside on a good clear day.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Parked at Queen Elizabeth playing field next to Adisham School & followed footpaths across fields from there. Nice views across rolling chalk downland. Managed to stay dry between showers!

Cycled the complete length of the bridlepath that passes the pillar. At a present a dry grass surface. Pillar out in open with no nearby hedges.

Lived near here for years & never knew it was there. Same could probably be said to most people nearby which explains its generally good condition & cap still in place

Parked just off Bramling Road near site of Bekesbourne rivet (which was not to be seen) and walked along path through fields mostly planted with oilseed rape. An enjoyable light ramble through East Kent countryside.
