Also parked part way along farm access track just below the PROW, then over the first dodgy style and into the Ďbullí field. Didnít see any bulls just some very hot sheep and lambs trying to get in the shade of the trees or hedges. Easy bag just off PROW.

I've been to trigs with more fantastic views, but I've never had a flock of sheep run towards me before! I was trying not to look at them so as not to scare them so I it was rather disconcerting when I looked up and found myself surrounded. Still making me smile, great experience :)

What a pleasant surprise! Down working at Gatwick for a couple of weeks, good chance to grab some trigs. This one a couple of miles from the B&B so a nice donder on a lovely day. Didn't bring the digging kit which is unfortunate as a couple of unfound surface blocks nearby.

Onwards from Shellwood to here then a long loop north of Leigh back to the car and tail end of Andy Murray's Wimbledon victory on the radio! Even better views of the N Downs and an adjacent oak tree made a great shady picnic spot. Metal cap shallow letters, E s/hole open complete with ant colony, otherwise vgc.

I parked at the entrance to the driveway to Swains Farm to the west. Then just walked along the footpath to reach this pillar which is situated in an open field currently being grazed by sheep and their lambs. The pillar is in good condition and still retains an original indented lettered plug. A lovely pastoral location particularly at this time of the year.

Easy access on footpath in pasture field. Original plug with slighty-indented letters. Quite well-painted. Obviously a sheep-gathering spot as the concrete base has been exposed about 8" allround! FB has a 'Raised S'. Moderate views.

vgc, metal cap shallow letters, BSM style FB. Pasture just NE of stile. 3 noisy birds flying around, presumably Rose-ringed parakeets altho sounded more Parrot-like.

Sited on a public footpath in the middle of a grassy field. Easily accessible. I noted that the numbers on the flush bracket are damaged, and that the damage is very similar to that on the FB of TP5930 - Shellwood (S3279). A coincidence or a manufacturing fault?
