Bagged as YSM0049 Ditchling. Another one Mr U2 already had in the bag and luckily he didn't have to wait long in the car as it's just a short trip from the carpark to the pillar. If you are also a trig bagger don't forget to look for the remains of 'TP10124 - Ditchling' which is close by. #4 day#2 - on the road again Total day#1 #13

Trig eight, day three of my SDW stroll. Lots of people about enjoying the stunning views from this beauty spot. Great place to have lunch before heading N down to Hassocks and stayed with son-in-law's sister, husband and delightful baby for the night. Bliss, a comfortable bed and warm hospitality. The following morning I was given a lift back up to the ridge to continue on my way. Monday was to end up a stormy day, little did I know. On to Pyecombe.

Finished work at half one, drove straight up to the car park and dutifully paid my £2 - it's for a good cause. Pillar is a short stroll up from the road. Lovely warm day and a little hazy in the distance. Beautiful extensive views all round. I am reliably informed that Ditchling Beacon, at 248 metres, has a higher altitude than 5 American states.

The highest of the 13 T/Ps that Iíve visited over the last 2 days and a short walk up from the NT car park. Good guys payÖ. Not so good guys donít. The summit is a bit ordinary but on a clear day I guess you can see for miles. Today, however was overcast, wet and the visibility was poor. The pillar is in good condition with all the metalwork in place. For those that are interested, this is YSM049.

I have cycled up here twice now on the London to Brighton bike ride (June time)from Ditchling village. This was the first time that I have been here on foot and not out of breath.The pillar is very easy to find and the views are great. Lot of people up here today as it was so hot.

Great views, brilliant spot. If you are a member of National Trust you can park for free in the carpark below, otherwise this is great walk. I passed this place last year on the London to Brighton Cycle ride so it was so good to be driven this time.

A nice place to start a walk from, or combine for a longer walk with other trigpoints along the top of the South Downs.

ive made two visits to this trig. Although i couldnt tell you the date of either! Date above is around the date of the second, first being around '94. Excellent spot, probably the first trig outsides Wales I visited.
