Drove part way down the RoW, til it got too muddy; walked final 600m, then over b/w stock fence to trig located in cattle pasture. Pillar found in good condition with base a little exposed. Original cap in place, deeply indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open, RHD side and rear plugs degrading. 360deg panorama with Portland Bill prominent.

On long distance walk today and paused here for some vittles and to view the trigpoint. What a fine prospect from White Horse Hill, although the horse itself is in need of some maintenance - looking somewhat dowdy at the moment. Apparently the good people of Weymouth have never been impressed with the fact that King George is riding away from the town!

Excellent condition and easily accessible either through the gate at the end of the track or by stradling the fence opposite the pillar where the barbed wire isn't stapled to one of the posts. Brass top plug in position.

I parked on Green Hill about 1km to the west of the trig point, where the is room for one car to pull in off the road, and then walked along the South West Coast Path. I then followed the advice from mickandshane on how to access the trig which worked perfectly.

We parked at the start of the track that leaves the Broadmayne to Ridgeway Hill road on a bit of a bend. If you've got a 4 wheel drive or aren't too worried about your springs you can drive most of the way to the trig. We walked past assorted fly tipping and the ruin of Northdown Barn. If you don't fancy straddling the barbed wire fence you can enter the field via a gate where the footpath drops down to Preston. Good views of Portland and Weymouth. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Last trig of a three trig (and one missing) day. In a field just off the bridleway with tumuli for company. Far reaching views in all directions - Weymouth, Dorchester, Portland, Maiden Castle, Hardy Monument, White Nothe. A place to visit with binoculars.
