Fabulous 12 mile circular from Lullingstone park through Eynsford up to try and get the Chimhams Farm trig but lots of barbed wire there so put on the back burner. After, had a drive to this trig instead. Parked on the flytipping corner by the blocked byway and walked steeply uphill. No one around. Trig soon spotted and in good order.

Trig now surrounded by foilage

The Olympic Trigpoint! (..S2012?) ... Views from the top of the North Downs across the weald of Kent. Behind you is the great Wrotham Heath transmitter. Access to the trig is easiest along the field edge from the road to the west. Takes about 7 minutes each way.

Parked on the north side of the M20 and walked south across it on a footbridge where we found a good path going through the woods that brought us out at the field/wood boundary fence close to the trig. Hopped over the b/w fence into the field. The concrete plinth is exposed, plug missing, but pillar otherwise in good condition at present. To return we dropped straight down the hill and picked up the Pilgrims Way, walking east. Re-crossing the M20 on another footbridge.

clay field recently ploughed is hard work and a long trawl. base looks like it will in time be undermined. views better from near locations than at the trig. - Quiet Local lanes and bridleways across the downs made for a pleasant jog from brands hatch

Easy walk with the recent harvest, I think the reason for the high platform is the ground has erroded away (constant ploughing?). Trig ok, but empty plug hole.

This is one of those trigpoints that can be seen as soon as you pull up in the car. Unfortunately it is on the far side of a very large field, and although the crop had been harvested, I felt it was best to keep to he edge. So it was quite a long walk. The pillar itself is mounted on a concrete plinth and is in good condition, apart from a missing centre plug. The field in which the pillar stands is rich in flints, and a number of these have been placed on top of the trigpoint. I don't know if there is any particular reason for this but I added one anyway (when in Rome etc...)
