Kept following the BW to South Wonston. Did go down a bit of a real road, Stoke Charity Rd, to S before I turned off down another ROW, Backtrack Rd, by side of town. Over A34 on bridge and then parked bike and up path by side of Water Tower. Followed Tractor tracks to Trig. Found it all in good order. Went back same way down Backtrack Rd and then down Stoke Charity Rd to Car. Last for today. 20miles dead. Should be home for lunch.

Bagged our first trig with this one! :) As several others have reported, In the middle of a field (freshly sown when we visited so tread with care!) with limited views. Water tower visible and lots of traffic noise.

The water tower seen from the A34 is probably the most interesting thing about this Trig.Easy to find,walk over the A34 footbridge past the water tower on your left scabble up a small bank on your left, keeping the tower on your left walk to the next field where you will spy the trig the midlle of the field.

En route from S Wonston back to Sutton Scotney. In middle of just planted field so able to tiptoe up to it. VGC, small chips out of top edges but not serious, metal cap indented letters, SW s/hole open, garlanded by large lumps of flint the farmer has presumably ploughed out of his field. Adjacent water tower is rather fine design and hung with all manner of aerials.

Walked over to discover the site of the old Worthy Down railway station of which there is significant evidence: a platform remains in place, and the site of the WWII signal box. Back to visit trigpoint no:s7290 within the sound of the A34, and the modern concrete sculpture that is the water tower.

As we approached we thought for a moment that this one was going to be an active station with all the paraphinalia on top of the water tower thing but then saw the pillar. Quite close to a busy road so views pleasant on one side but noisy and not so pleasant on the other.

Easy to locate and access using water tower as guide. Probably suffers from being too close to estate across the road and has some graffiti. OK views, but nothing special.

Hmmm, odd trig this. No need to visit again, views as far as the hedges, birdsong can be heard over the traffic noise and grass can be seen where the bikes haven't worn it away. I suppose the concrete water tower has some merit.

As with most others, I logged this one whilst on a cache hunt. A rather muddy field being used as a motorcycle dirt track. The T/P being used as the turning marker. Not the prettiest of locations.
