Road-side trig, on the S side of the road. If approaching from the NW (i.e. you're travelling SE), immediately after the quarry entrance to the left, there will be 2 telegraph poles. The trig is directly opposite the 2nd telegraph pole. Parked on the road directly opposite the trig and made a quick run across the road to take some pics of the trig. It is leaning into the ditch, but it's still there. I didn't dare venture close to the trig for fear of falling into the ditch! Concrete base exposed, centre cap missing, FB faces the road.

This pillar appears to be slipping into the water filled road side ditch. It certainly looks different from the photos of it. It is now surrounded by large quarries, with monster machinery moving close by, kicking up lots of dust and dirt. It does not yet seem to be in anyone's way, so may remain where it is for a while yet, but if it topples into the ditch it will be a lot harder to find. Very sad looking.

Oh this was troublesome! Started off well enough by parking on the track which runs adjacent to the road, and walking back a hundred yards or so to the pillar where I slipped/fell into the deep ditch sustaining multi-scratch wounds with blood dripping profusely over my white (it had to be!) shirt. And what an unlovely setting for the pillar which has no cap and one sight-hole open. Definitely need secateurs for this one, unless you're prepared to dive down within the damaging thorns as I did. Hours later I'm still removing splinters........

The fast traffic, narrow road, no footpath and overgrown brabbles made visiting this one more like a suicide mission. Not even any views to redeem it. My lowest mark yet!

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Pillar found alive and well... well, not very well actually. Poor thing is tilting to the side and forwards and looks in imminent danger of toppling into the narrow, but quite deep ditch between in and the road. My last pillar in Dorset so spent some time cutting it free from its straitjacket of bramble, thorn and ivy, putting pruning saw and secateurs to good use. Cap is missing, no plug; RHD side sight hole open. No views.

Cap missing. Leaning to north possibly caused by earth moving machinery on other side of track. Surrounded by very deep quarries presumably extracting sand or Purbeck stone.

Stopped on road, by pit entrance (shut on sunday) and walked 100 yards to pillar by the side of the road. Covered in brambles and slightly leaning.

Looked 3 days before without any luck. After getting previous visit info from PKBathrooms over the phone it was easy to find. Cheers, Griefmeister.

Bit sad looking this one - Not sure if has been dug up and moved a short distance towards the road to allow for the quarry/landfill site access mud track and that is why it is leaning? grotty location.

Very sad little trig, leaning over and would not take much of an impact to see the end of it. Fortunately Royal Wedding bank holiday so road totally deserted and thus an opportunity for a good look. Free of vegetation, FB is visible, but no plug.

Not looking good really, leaning somewhat. I wasnt going to fight with the foliage to get a closer inspection either - it was bad enough with the traffic ! Bit of a dodgy bag; right along the side of a fairly busy road.

On a minor but busy road with frequent quarry lorries. Either side of the road there is largescale sand/gravel extraction. Pillar is roadside and leaning. Plug is missing,unfilled. Pillar has fair covering of vegetation all covered in a good coat of fine dust.

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! Map notes just record "No views".
