The gate to the track from road at North has a lot of barbwire around it. I dont think they want visitors. But if you go SSE about 100-200m along road there is no or very poor fallen down fence. Walked along concrete track to Trig. It had been cleared and had loads of grassy bits stuck to it. I didnt see anyone but didnt hang around as it did feel a bit Secret Squirrel.

A slim person should be able to slide under locked gates on track from north (a plastic bag helps slippery-ness). Fencing is difficult

I wonder whether this concrete track leading up to the trig is an old runway from the former RAF Chilmark? (Seems very similar to all of those New Forest wartime airfields I know well). Pillar fine but no cap & one sight-hole open. Again the area immediately surrounding the pillar has been recently cleared. (Someone cares!)

Parking ok on grass verge of the minor road; walked the 500m south to the trig on the private concrete road. New looking electric double gates at the road entrance deters the casual walker (or inquisitive driver), so a definite trespass required for this one. Pillar has some deep cracking on the top surface, but don't seem to be getting worse, otherwise it looks in good condition; 1 sight hole open; cap missing, no plug. Ground has been comprehensively cleared of weeds etc around the pillar.

Hasn't been visited in a long time as it was very overgrown and I had to do a lot of clearing before I could read the FB. No views. Missing plug.

Frosty,misty,moonlit,dusk walk from the north to this one. The area round the trig had been cleared of weeds so easy access. Plug missing.

But for the padlock on the gate, this is a drivable TP.

What looks to be a double wall on the 25k map is actually a well paved farm road passing right next to the trig point. Nice easy start for a long morning

Reasonable views. Pillar surrounded by nettles by side of a concrete farm track.

This is retrospective log, hence different condition. For some reason this took me 3 tries to locate this. In the end it was a bit of a disappointment.
