8.7 miles circular from Melbury Abbas by some contrived route, we took in Win Green trig and Melbury Hill trig. That morning we had already been to Hambledon Hill and Sutton Hill trigs. Before and after the walk was showery but we managed to do this walk in a 4 hour window of dry weather. Later that day bagged Duncliffe Hill trig. Great views from the summit of Win Green taking in Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight south.

OK. I found it a real struggle getting up Donhead Hollow. Knee has almost totally given up. Still the views are great from up here. A really good one to finish the days trig hunting on. At least I can see the car from it. I dont think I will be trig hunting for a while. Not until my knee is better.

On way to Shaftesbury and paused here awhile in the misty murkiness, so unfortunately no views today (but I remember other bright days up here). It made for one of those quiet atmospheric days with every now & then a cow (or two) spectrally appearing out of the mist. Pillar's paint gradually peeling away, plastic cap, and all four sight-holes closed.

Short walk up from the adjacent car park (although mind your car suspension on the access road!). Very surprised to be able to see both the IoW and the Purbecks from here. Also a very atmospheric tumulus / clump of trees to north. Plain plastic cap, mostly white painted (but flaking), otherwise vgc.

Wingreen also a Marilyn, so trig was a bonus. Walked up from Tollard Royal, parking extremely diffcult in the village - ended up using the space reserved for church visitors, we got told off, but better than creating a hazard on side of the road. Perhaps we should have parked right next to the trig, but no walk that way. Trig in good condition. ***Revisited exactly 3 years to the day later 14 Mar 2013 as was passing and didn't photograph spider or FB last time. National Trust land, highest point on Cranborne Chase. All sight holes filled; cap missing, replaced by composite plug. Pillar still looking shabby in its coat of flakey white paint - more than made up for in the 360deg views.

The pillar is painted white; it has a plastic plug, an OS plaque and FB S1503. Radio controlled model gliders were flying by the car park and a little to the south paragliders were in action. The summit is a Marilyn and is the highest point in Cranborne Chase. The wide view would have been even more spectacular without the haze. Shaftesbury and the Blackmore Vale to the west, downland ridges stretch toward Salisbury Plain to the north and the site over looks the interior of Cranborne Chase to the south and east.
