I kept cycling along byway to the W until I hit a road. Trig is just off it at the end of a runway. Had fun watching parachutists coming in to land a a plane take off (not at same time, though.)

Bagged as YSM707 Triple Plantation. Very easy roadside bag. Didn't see any tanks but did see some soldiers practicing nearby, not sure what they made of Mr U2's wig!

Easter Monday outing to Salisbury plain. No red flags flying so able to drive the byways with ease. Easiest find of the day and I stopped for a breather to watch the parachutists floating down.

The wife was concerned about us stopping near a military base to find the pillar. But nothing happened.

Found as YOSM707. Easy roadside TP in an area used for military exercises. Not great views but easy to find.

Eventful walk here from Sidbury Camp Hill-fort with the Army putting in several appearances in the form of tanks and soldiers on the ground! Just slightly disconcerting! Oh, and then there were the helicopters. My second trig of the day was something of an anti-climax, but seems to be in good condition in its roadside setting.

Roadside location in an area of much military activity and close to the Netheravon Army airfield. Pillar is in good condition, has been painted white (the flush bracket also, but not the spider), plug missing, 3 sight holes open, the rear one is closed. No views to speak of.

They don't come much easier to cycle to. Much military activity on adjacent land with armed guards and helicopters.

Out plane spotting near Netheravon and remembered my old hobby on seeing on the map I had just turned the car around near this one. First one for about 18 months

Claimed this on a bike ride from Hungerford to Salisbury. Think the view is probably good but was very foggy on the top!

The pillar is situated next to a minor road, near a tank crossing on a flat summit; it has no plug, is painted white and has FB S1928. The site is within the area of the unimproved chalk downland of the Salisbury Plain SSSI. A grassy plain extends to the north and west; a small airfield lies to the southwest and Beacon Hill can be seen to the south between two plantations; Sidbury Hill lies to the east.

A very white-painted trig by the roadside. Even the flush bracket is painted white! Only the S sighthole is closed, all the others are open. The plug is missing. There are excellent views, especially to the N and W - you can see the tanks moving across the Plain today!
