Located on a very prominent location with fantastic views over Chesil beach and the Dorset coastline , a shame the weather wasn't clearer today. Trig all in good nick other than refilled centre cap , interestingly the soil erosion is so severe that the trig feels about 6ft tall. Ordnance Survey information lists the computing year as 1950 and the height a/s/l at 215.831 metres (708.11 feet).

The highest point around for miles. An extraordinary view of Chesil beach and Portland Bill. The trigpoint is at the iron-age hill fort of Abbotsbury Castle.

Wonderfully sunny day so what a fantastic location. Great views all round, including a hunt on the next hill (no sign of the fox however!). Walked from W Bexington via trig to lunch at the pub in Abbotsbury, and afterwards St Catherine's Chapel. Base of trig quite eroded, but otherwise in good condition.

Easily accessable on the South West Coast Path. Located in an iron age hill fort. (I logged this wrong on my GPS - I hope the plate number is correct)

Eleven mile walk starting out from near Abbotsbury as far west as Swyre then back along coast but got very wet in process. (Also visited 06/09/1988).

Ecellent view of the coast. Definitely still there, as its just visible from the road, which I drive quite often.
