Nice easy find after parking on quiet road. On my return to the car I spotted a deer with antlers on the road.

I parked to the east opposite to where the footpath that leads directy to the pillar. Very easy to reach and accessable. In large grass/pasture field. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original indented lettered plug. Quite a nice location if you can block out the road noise from the nearby A24.

An interesting one to end a day's trigpointing on. The pillar is located in a field with a footpath running across it. A herd of steers were congregating on the line of the footpath, so I felt well justified in diverting across to the pillar. Was I wrong! As I approached the pillar the whole herd started moving towards me. I was a race against time, (or the steers) to carry out the logging before the trigpoint was surrounded. After I had finished the herd started following me down the hill, at one point breaking into a trot. The word stampede kept flashing through my mind. I was glad to reach the fence and get out of there.
