On a three-trig walk from Alvediston where I visited the church of St Mary's on the way up to Sutton Down. In the churchyard lies another former prime minister who got it badly wrong: Eden/Suez and now Blair/Iraq. Well, the keen breeze swirling around the pillar soon banished those depressing thoughts. In good condition with cap intact and one sight-hole open. And now for White Sheet Hill.......

To Shaftesbury for the Old Man to do a bread baking course and me to collect trigs. This the first, on a circular walk from West End to here and onwards to Trow Down. Wonderful spring morning - celandines, violets, bluebells, cowslips and newly emerged horse chestnut leaves looking like long limp green fingers; lambs, bees, pheasants and skylarks in the fauna department. Excellent views, metal cap, shallow letters, N s/hole open (had to dig the others out to check), otherwise exc condition.

Located on the northern escarpment of Cranborne Chase with generous 360deg veiws. Attempted to drive the Old Shaftsbury Drove road from the W, but it was subject to a closure notice due to its poor condition. Pillar is in good condition; 1 sight hole open, 2 are now beneath ground level and cannot be determined; original cap in place. Fovant badges can just be made out 3-4km to the E.

Drive up Byway to 300m S of North Way farm,parking where track branches R. Walked in past shoot party who then proceeded to refuse to allow me to return the same way as they were shooting across the path and the drove.......great! The beaters did send a fox out 20ft in front of me which took my attention away from the 2 mile detour I had to do to get back to my car! Pillar in pasture 20ft from track and in good shape.

seems I did as the last visitor and followed the permissive path and tractor marks to the trig. Pleasant if cold end to the day with cirling lapwings for company

Walked from a layby on the A30 to the north east of Swallowcliffe. Do'nt do as I did and take a curving permissive track just before the correct one (it curves in the same direction) near the top of the hill. A short cut across field took me to the pillar which retains plug, shallow indented lettering. Good views N,S&E.

in the middle distance, the badges can just be seen but a better view is from FIR HILL TP.

Good views north from the pillar. Approaching from Shaftesbury Drove from the east gives good views to the south in places, although had to climb into the hedge to let a convoy of land rovers from an off-road club pass by.
