Did not fancy going past the signs at the entrance, so opted for a view and image from the NW, Birding lens comes in handy :)

Extensive signage warning premises government property - no admittance - no walkers - 24-hr CCTV etc. However, everything wide open so just walked in at main entrance off Drove Rd. 275m walk to trig, telescope 450m to S, no-one around, no security, easy bag.

Security is about as high as the fences and gates! I went for the challenge but clearly no one around to to be concerned. One photo taken at point blank the other from the footpath at the NW perimeter fence.

Clearly visible across the fields from the lane to the NW. On a ground mounted tripod. In the grounds of Chilbolton Observatory.
