Nice ride to this one with plenty of ponies around. As the morning goes on I see more people enjoying the day as well. Like; ramblers, dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Trig in good condition and nice views.

Good parking at Abbots Well approx 1km SW of the trig. The pillar is located on a flatish, round hump of a hill just within the border of the New Forest, with enough prominence to give good views over the immediate area - gorse, heather etc. Pillar is in good condition; all sight holes open; original cap replaced with asphalt plug.

Abbots Well was a fascinating visit dating from at least the thirteenth century. This 'perpetual spring' has slaked the thirst of many a traveller/walker over the centuries. Trigpoint s 2704, although in a fine location, was something of an anti-climax for me, following this mediaeval discovery.

The pillar is sited on a flattish heathland hilltop amongst heather, ferns and gorse close to the junction of several tracks. It has an asphalt plug, an OS GPS plate and FB S2704. The view is over the nearby vegetation to distant agricultural downland in the northwest and the woodland and heath of the New Forest in other directions. Despite the showers a pleasant walk with fine views accompanied by the kids and grandkids starting from Ogden’s Farm taking in Windmill Hill, Hampton Ridge, Alderhill Inclosure and the banks of Latchmore Brook.

Some navigational challenges en route, but not in finding the trig. Good condition and views particularly NW to Salisbury Plain.
