Nice cycle along the coast at times to get to this one but quite a lot of boring roads as well. Not too sure why a trig was put here. Its almost at sea level.

Shorter than the average pillar - looks like this one has suffered from some subsidance. Easy access, on a footpath and 100m from a car park, on the edge of Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve - Christchurch Harbour just about visible to SE. Original cap in place, raised lettering; all sight holes below ground level.

Buried up to its FB. 80 m beyond scout hut. Cap screws missing; cap itself still present. By the entrance to the Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve. Parked in recreation ground car park (free unlike many around here) nearby).

Beautiful day by Stanpit Marsh further enhanced by a pair of egrets nearby: such elegant little birds sporting in a spring-like manner! Had to remove a stinging nettle in order to reveal the FB number - managed this without any injuries. At 2m, this is my lowest recorded trig to date.

Clear views over the quay towards Hengistbury Head to the next trig. Easy to locate, right on the footpath leading from the car park of the Scout Hut.

Stopped off en route from Hengistbury Head to Old Man's birthday dinner so a quick in and out. Beautiful evening and good views of H Head. Pillar is sinking as we had to excavate the bottom inch of the FB to photograph it (was lower than Sandisox's photo from a month ago!), and s/holes not visible. Otherwise exc condition complete with metal cap, raised lettering.

Logged while doing some caches in the local area. The plug is original with raised letters. Traces of paint. Sightholes below soil level. On the edge of the local marshy nature reserve so twitchers about! Moderate views over the low-lying area.
