As previous reports have said there is no sign of any pillar here. Checked in the copse/hedge and in the field. Had to check as I was passing.

N edge of field beside plantation. Searched surrounding woodland but didn't spot dumped pillar. Scrub beside access track from south also possible but a fair bit of vegetation. Walked back at dusk, damp end to a windy day

Walked past site of pillar on a nice day. Site just off footpath, but exact location just guesswork, so grid ref is best possible guess. Day was a bit hazy, but on a good day views from here must be well above average.

Turners Lane was navigable today so drove up from Tarrant Monkton and walked the last 600m along a muddy farm track. Field to the south of the trig location is now growing a crop of grass, with a charismatic herd of inquisitive heifers grazing it. As expected, no sign of the pillar - OS site states it was replaced by a buried block in Oct 1966.

Quite a walk up from village but good views to S. No sign of anything on the ground.

The site of the trig is close to a fence separating a muddy pig field and a narrow linear copse. It is situated on a low ridge within Cranborne Chase to the north east of Blandford Forum. There is no sign of a trig on the ground. It was reached by bridleway tracks up from the pretty village of Tarrant Monkton. The trig site looks across gently rolling wooded downs to the south east. From the other side of the copse the view is to the north across more open rolling agricultural downland.

Pleasant walk to this one. No sign of pillar at given grid, photo is site only.Had a good look in the small copse that is near but found no sign. The obvious high point is 40ft across the field where there is an interesting mound of earth ,this is actually a buried tank though with no evidence of pillar remains.
