From NT car park uphill to Hillfort boundary. Along fence line a short way and through barbed wire fence. Short walk through field to enclosure. Hard to spot at first but could see where others had been so ventured in but needed secateurs as very thorny.

A very tricky one to find. Had to climb a barbed wire fence at the fort rampart. Eventually found it after walking around twice. It is on the south westerly corner (Picture attached). Can be seen from the side of the fence the photo was taken.

We were looking for the ROC post within the same compound and also found this trig point. Couldn’t get proper access to it, plan on trying again in the future when travel is unrestricted

Trig is on SW side within brambly enclosed thicket with FB facing away from fence. ROC bunker at west end; Concrete reservoir at east end. Trig easily visible today. Good views. Did not see white horse which is on s side of ramparts. Free parking at Stockbridge Down NT car park to S.

Parked at Stockbridge Down National Trust car park to the SW, then walked up Stockbridge Down to Woolbury hillfort. At the fort's rampart, I climbed through the barbed wire fence (there are 5 or 6 strands of barbed wire), then walked across the field (summit area) to the thicket in the middle of the summit area where the ROC post is. Sheep in the field. The thicket was surrounded by a low fence and there was a make-shift gate on the E side. The thicket was completely overgrown, I searched for the trig from within the thicket and also from outside the fence but I couldn't find it at all. I must have been within a few feet of it, but unable to see it. See pic: circled is the big round concrete thing, which I accessed via the make-shift gate on the E side. I will return in the winter to reattempt to locate this one. Looking at past logs and pics, it would appear that the thicket has grown in size in recent years, and the fence around the thicket has been moved / relocated to enlarge the thicket. *** Revisited 5 December 2019: found it this time. See screenshot attached. The trig is about 1m inside the fence, completely overgrown with thorn, unable to even touch it without doing a serious amount of chopping. No wonder I couldn't find it on my first visit (without a GPS). I can confirm that the thicket has grown in size and the fence has been moved to enlarge the thicket over the years.

Cycled back to car at Danebury Hill as i was feeling tired and the drove to this one. Glad I did as road to it was steep. Not sure my legs would have made it. Quite a long walk from carpark. And had to navigate a couple of fences. FB is difficult to photo because its tucked away in hawthorn bush.

The pillar stands next to a ROC post in a grass field inside an Iron Age hill fort on a downland ridge to the north west of Winchester. The site was approached across Stockbridge Down from the car park to the south west. A fence was negotiated on the rampart of the fort to enter the field in its interior. The pillar is in fine condition. It has a metal cap with shallow lettering and FB S1699. Stockbridge Down has several ancient barrows and earthworks and its chalk scrub and grassland have been designated a SSSI. Its slopes had a fine view to the south over rolling countryside of low ridges of fields and woods interspersed with ribbons of mist and fog. From the trig this view was partly masked by trees and shrubs on the perimeter of the camp. To the north distant hill tops could be seen peaking out above an extensive blanket of fog.

Took a bit of getting to having crossed Stockbridge Down. Fence and ploughed field beyond ring hard work. What are the vents or hatches close to trig? Is it a reservoir top or bunker? Anyway pillar retains plug, shallow indented lettering. Views a bit restricted by scrub and woodland.

Slightly awkward to get to this one, clambered over a barbed wire fence and then in full view of farmer & tractor. Woolbury Ring is of 20 acres, but much of it has been destroyed by ploughing unfortunately, therefore had no compunction about accessing this trigpoint. In the event, the tractor didn't head my way with guns blazing.....

En route home from a long walk round Stockbridge, stopped off to collect this one. Direct walk up from the car park through NT land to the iron age fort on a beautiful sunny evening. Trig in a planted up field so viewed from afar and didn't trespass.

Taken long before I started to 'collect' trigs. A lovely location within the iron age hillfort, although outside of the 'public' section, hence the condition listed.

Trig from the fence.
View to the west with Danebury and one of the Wallops.
