Walked H. of E. way from Upper Quinton then along field edges to Jerratt's Brow. Well trod path from hedge line out into field and trigpoint. Lots of free range turkeys enjoying their last few days before Christmas.

Parked at a field gate to ESE (SP 1840 4499). Pleasant walk up crossing the earthworks (not much to be seen) at the 181m spot height. Pillar sits in a blue sea of borage approx 30m from the field boundary on an unusual plinth of loose stones. A damaged composite cap replaces the metal cetre plug; RHS sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views.

Meon Hill Trig with stones presumably unearthed when field turned over; can't imagine the farmer doing it?

Accessed from caravan site below ,onto the Heart Of England Way. Then up to hill fort, trig in middle of corn field. A path leading to it. Nice to see a plinth made of stones ( and sea shells !) hand laid. Great views .

Cycled through Mickelton and parked bike in farmers track. then walked through field with sheep in it. Over gate and along the edge of the earth works. TP is in field full of crops but there is a rather well used path through them to it. It is sitting on a rather nice plinth of stonework. Good views all round.

Done on way back from Stow-on-the-Wold YHA.Much easier to reach than anticapted from map. Left Hidcote to Mickleton road to South near sharp doulble bends. Field access track to start, then rapidly steepening grass field to gate then left across two stubble fields. A warm Sep day. Now only one pillar to visit East of Severn between B'ham and Bristol (missing Dumbleton, farmer stated that area was currently barried off, but access would be possible between Feb and may). Total now at 333 for year and 2223 overall.

In the middle of a corn field, we walked along wheel marks to the pillar. This is the first pillar I have painted as the start of a challange to paint all the pillars in Warwickshire

Approach off Heart of England Way.Cant think of good excuse as to why you would be on top of hill if challenged.There is no ROW s nearby and signs to tell you you cant go there.Best to act ignorant and say you wanted pics of the view ! Which is excellent!You would think the GOML brigade could put one permissive path up to the top ?

Read Mick and Shane's log; then took one look at the contour lines on my OS map and decided that discretion was the better part of valour and decided on an east-side approach, asking permission from Meon Hall [WATCH THE DOGS!!]. This way, past the barn, is much less steep! Fortunately the rain had now stopped but the pea-field has been ploughed and was in a dire state. Anyway, the plug is missing but otherwise it's in good shape. No significant paint. Sightholes below soil level. Good views from here [as one would expect] but those to the S and E are best.

We parked at Upper Quinton and followed the Heart of England Way for about a kilometer until it passes a thin strip of woodland, which heads east up the hill, just past Lower Clopton Farm. At the top of the field there is a stile of sorts which gives access to the hill fort, which suggests there is public access of some sort. It's quite a pull up Jarrett's Brow onto the top. The beans have been replaced with wheat, and it's easy to get to the trig via tractor tracks. Excellent views. GPS plaque. Plug missing. S5067 is the FB no of Waddon Hill, as Father Ted knows, as he visited it on the same day.

Visited this Trig while on Bens Stag Doo! A large group of lads burning off the beer and curry they had the night before. We had a really nice day strolling in the nice weather in search of a ye olde country pub. Ben coped very well with his burnt nipple!
