Parked on a small grass verge close to the trig, needed to clamber over barbed wire into the field. Trig next to the hedge (difficult to get an all round view) it is in good condition except the centre plug is missing

Parked on wide verge to west of Thorns Cottages. Walked back along lane towards trig, ducking under wire fence to get to the field side of hedge. Had to do a bit of cutting to get through all the nettles.

Roadside pillar, but on field side of hedgerow. Parking close by on wide verge. This one is being subsumed into the hedgerow; cut back a fair bit of the encroaching thorn, ivy and bramble. Pillar generally in good condition but for some slight chipping to top edges/corners; cap missing, no plug; LHD side and front sight holes closed, other 2 below ground level. Ground also begining to encroach onto FB, dug that out a little. 360deg views.

yet another darkness trig fortunately close to road. pull off50m east of trig noticed that a stretch of barbed wire was cut and rejoined so can be unwound to give a gap to gently ease through and then ree joined afterwards.... kind gesture from whoever did that....trig bottom is slightly buried....bottom of flush bracket level with the ground.

There is room to pull off the road onto the verge just a little to the east of the pillar. The barbed wire fence here is easy enough to negotiate, giving access to the field. The pillar is overgrown and the bottom of the flush bracket is just below ground level but you can still read the number. The pillar is in generally good condition but the centre plug has been removed. The only view is south across the field.

Looks like the barbed wire topped gate has been replaced by new barbed wire fence but is easy to slide under in several places. Good condition but plug missing.

As has been said, this is invisible from the road at this time of year. Took one look at the broken gate with barbed wire and decided that the easier approach was to park at the road junction to the west of the trig and climb the gate there! The plug is missing but otherwise it's OK apart from a minor crack in one side. Three sightholes closed - the other invisible. No paint. Moderate views S to the Isle of Wight. The barley is ripening nicely!

At field edge close to hedge. I could not spot it from the road through the hedge and a tractor was working in the field. Fortunatly the farmer then went off (for his lunch I guess), so able to access. Remnants of white paint on pillar. plug missing, hole unfilled.

Last of 9 early-morning trigpoints whilst en-route to the Charles Close Society AGM at the OS HQ in Southampton. The pillar is located close to the hedge in a field, close to the road. There is a nearby gate which is covered in barbed wire. However, there was a big enough gap under the gate to get past it without a problem

3rd of 4 I little harder to find as in is tucked in hard to the hedge so can't see when you look over the fence and the hedge is too dense to see through.

Easy access through field entrance about 50m to the west. All other comments still stand, on headland behind thick hawthorn hedge and not easily visible from the road. No top plug.

As others have commented, it's the wrong side of a very spikey hedge - found it in the end. Pretty ordinary really :-(

Fairly easy to locate, but on the wrong side of the hedge so access could be a problem dependent on time of year. Visited while walking the Solent Way.

My daughter helped me to find this one. The hedge is very deep at this point and it was only just visible with minimal spring growth. With the hedge and barbed wire, this TP is well named! GR to 10m only.

I made hard work of this, I think the barbed wire might be quite new so getting through the hedge wasn't so easy.
