Same route as most other people. This is a breeding area for game birds so prob best to ask permission from the farmer before walking through the woods.

A 45min return walk through woodland to this pillar. Pheasants are everywhere. Interesting ladders.

Same route as previous visitors although the wet part of the field wasn't too bad today. Lots of pheasant feeders (and pheasants), limited views due to the plantation.

Walked north up the lane sign posted to White House Folly and at the brow of the rise is an obvious parking / passing spot on the right, and from here leads a faint track east up through the wood. At the top of this wood is a very swampy area (wellies essential!) bear north east towards a wooden gate at an enclosure halfway up the hillside. From there we followed the plantation edge east then north and the pillar was soon obvious (albeit becoming increasingly overgrown). The track shown on larger scale maps through the spruce plantation has completely disappeared. WARNING FOR DOG WALKERS - along the Public Bridleway that runs parallel to the road (which is extremely overgrown anyway) are a series of wire traps and nooses, one of which caught Rosie round the neck - I think was more paniced than she was, but be very careful around these woods if you have a dog with you.

Drove part way to white house folly and parked opposite gate to west and the though trees to edge of newer plantation. Walked up side of these trees to trig. Reasonable views to east. Saw a Peacock as I was leaving.

Parked near the Y-junction near White House and then up the bridleway (not signposted). Buzzards in the woods. Then followed the edge of the plantation to the top. The top has now been planted with trees so in a few years may present quite a challenge getting to the trig. At present it is OK but uneven.

Parked on road to white house folly at end of plantation, then walked back along bridle path then up through the plantation near its southern end to keep out of sight. Trig a short dash across farmland from top of the plantation.

A good position, not quite on the top of the hill but with restricted views either because of forest plantation or the top of the hill. The plug is original ald looks as if it might once have had raised letters. Remains of white paint. SW sighthole open, others closed. Flush bracket has 'Raised S'. Base visible to on side but mainly covered by grass. Fylingdales dome visible.
