Parked in Chalton village and walked up. Trig in garden of Windmill Hill. Not visible from frontage of property and large private property signs. On reading other posts I walked around perimeter fence and eventually saw trig - home owner had erected 2 lines of fence, green mesh and a hedge -do high I could even wave my selfie stick over it to take a photo. Trig glimpsed through fences!

Misty and grey but at least mild and the rain stopped. Pillar clearly visible through hedge but just untouchable through the split stick fencing.

Unable to access the pillar. Was able to just about see the outline of the pillar from the field through the boundary hedge.

Was hesitantly granted access via house and garden but did not want this publicized. However, not secure so if no one in, could wander round to trig. Go to left of house, past swimming pool keeping close to house. Trig is thru' the gate in front of you. Also very close to boundary fence.

Parking at junction Charlton Lane and A3, walked up to hill summit. 'Charlton Windmill' converted to private residence with bungalow attached; top of the hill fenced off as the garden. Pillar located at N corner of garden, new(ish) fence so not possible to view pillar without access to garden. Some slight chipping to top edges otherwise good; original cap in place, raised lettering; all sight holes now beneath ground level.

Asked the house owner for permission to visit the Pillar in his private garden. Would not recommend this approach again for a while. Pillar in excellent condition and the views over the downs are stunning.

Wedding anniversary trig #1. Failed to find this on my last attempt in the early 1990s: this time better prepared with larger scale map, GPS and logs from here, so easily found behind the house as others have stated. Sadly a right mizzle so absolutely no views, but trig in vgc complete with cap. Walked up from Chalton whence we returned to retire to the Red Lion ...

A good walk to some good views. Cap fitted, but as the pillar is in a private garden we could not read the flush bracket.

Great views out to the North. Metal plug in good condition. Can't quite get good look at plate by leaning over fence.

vgc, metal cap, small raised letters. Modern bungalow near windmill: trig is in garden in front of bungalow. Only 1m back from fence but FB on NE face hence only obliquely visible with last digit hard to see due to a low wall.

Already well documented other than to say there is a pull in on the minor road at the entrance to the lane that leads up to the windmill. Another red sunest and my camera in Wales (cus cuss)

In garden of converted windmill, Good condition, could not read flush bracket as it was facing towards wall of building. Good views all round of ButserHill & Portsmouth. This is the nearest trig to my home.

Wonderful views. This is just inside someone's garden and the flush bracket is difficult to read without climbing over the fence. Metal plug with raised lettering.

Bagged this Trig with Ben Staniford. We went on a nice morning stroll near QE Park and later went to a nice country pub for Beer :-) The Trig is enclosed in a fenced off area which looks to be someone’s garden. There is a great view of the nearby Windmill.

Inside the back garden of a house, half of which is a converted windmill. Tried to read it from outside the fence 3m away!

I'm writing this in Aug 2018 having just dug out some old maps and found notes on a few trigs I did 20+ years ago before I even realised this site existed! I have no memory of this trig which is odd given its location but the yellow highlighted trig on the 1994 Landranger is ticked and there's blue highlighter indicating route completed, so it was done. I'm estimating the date as being in the early Summer of 1997, when I clearly did a lot of trigging, mainly recorded in my (sadly lost) little blue book!
