Lovely sunny stroll along the cliff top to bag this one. Itíll fall over some day, but not just yet.

Saw this from the car by chance, so parked on the road immediately opposite, quick sprint across the field to get to it. Not a bad spot, trig is sinking, probably go over the edge one day with the erosion around here!

Parked on main road in a little lay-by then walked across field straight up to the trig. It is high on the cliff from the other side.

Pillar in small depression in ground with exposed base; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; 1 sight hole open. Extensive 360deg views.

Beautiful walk along deserted beach and coastal path to reach this pillar. A lovely Sunday morning stroll!

View along the coast from Sutton Cliff pillar I wonder how much longer this pillar will last before "descending" to sea level?

Parked on grass verge opposite and took path for campers straight to the trig. All intact with a surrounding moat caused by sheep polishing the flush bracket. The Needles Lighthouse is visible from here.

Easily accessible and highly visible being just off the cliff top public footpath. I parked at the road junction near Cowleaze Chine and walked north-west along the cliffs. However, access from the road would also be possible. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug. Lovely location.

Parked on grass verge on opposite side of road and walked towards coast. Pillar is easily spotted from road, it can even be seen on Google maps ! Barbed wire has to be climbed to gain access to trig. I kept my eye on a Range Rover which was cruising round the field but I guess he was the warden checking up on campers, he never bothered me. Good viewpoint.

Oh really !
As seen from Military Road (A3055), it's up there !
Outstanding in its field !

Nice views from this trig. A couple who saw us taking photos of it asked us what the monument was. So we duly explained that it was a trigpoint.

Easily spotted up on the coast footpath from the main road. I did however have to traverse private land and one barbed wire fence in order to reach the Trig. The location is nice with good coast views and a nearby bench to rest a while. The O/S website lists the computing year as 1942 and the height a/s/l as 53.623 metres (175.93 feet).

We parked on the Military Road just south east of Marshgreen Farm and took the footpath from there. An excellent walk but a little bit blowy. Good views, plug with indented lettering.

Good condition. Easy access. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering. S2509, as reported by other loggers, once belonged to High Down, next to the Tennyson Memorial.
