HISTORY: Pillar completed 25th Nov 1939 costing £4.11s.3d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station SU31/T159 during 1942. Levelled for height to class 1 precision at tertiary standards in 1959. Last maintained by the OS in 1977. SITE VISIT: Parked in handy car park 150m E and dodged small ponds, the trig is visible from the car park. Replacements asphalt cap, other than that, vgc. Flush bracket facing E, compass measurement 85°. All sight holes intact, the flush bracket looks to have been attempted to be painted. Trig on its own little island today!

I used the parking area a little to the east and walked the 100 metres or so across a very wet heath. There’s a ‘big sky’ here and on a clear day like today, you can see across the countryside for miles. The pillar is in generally good condition although the centre plug has been replaced with a bitumen filler.

On our way back from staying near Lyndhurst (again) we went that liitle bit further and bagged this one with another young trigger. Not much to talk about with the view other than very flat and wet. Trig in good condition cap missing, looks as if it might have been painted white at some time in its life.

Waiting for the lift. Getting 2 people on a trig is hard enough in 10 seconds, but to get 3 (ok 2.5) is even harder, but we like a challenge so we might push for 4.©hussyhill

Pillar stands on a low mound. Close to the Forestry Commission's Yew Tree Heath car park.

The trig pillar, looking towards Ferny Crofts On the floor to the right of the pillar is a piece of rope tied in some kind of boy scout knot - pretty appropriate really as Ferny Crofts (in the background behind the trees) is a Hampshire Scouting centre.

The line to Beaulieu Heath can only be viewed if one of the TPs is towered. Concrete Plug. All four drainage holes open, but full of rubbish.

Writing this in Aug 2018. Just dug out an old map and found notes on a few trigs I did in 1998. Vaguely remember bagging this and its nearest easterly neighbour, but my map notes just record date and time and no other details. I think I was recording all that stuff in a blue notebook, sadly now lost.
