Led a group of Ramblers to this trig on an 8.4 mile on a very windy day with the aftermath of Storm Eunice in evidence. Lots of trees and debris around and no power at the Bowl Inn at Hastingleigh when we stopped for drinks.

Close to the road, quick hop over a field gate. The trig had an expanse of chalk spread round it, speculation this might be marking it for an aerial survey. Pillar has no centre cap or plug; RHS sight hole sealed, other 3 open. Nearby fire basket beacon; extensive views.

---(2018-09-11, 12:10:00)--- TR 09994 42786 S3989 I knew that my walk along the North Downs Way would pass this trig but I was in two minds about visiting it. As it turned out, the trig is so close to the unlocked gate that there was no reason not to visit. The view was good though a little misty in the distance.

This is just a mile or so from where we are staying so would be rude not to visit. Parked right at the corner and as PJ grabbed a nearby cache VJ jumped gate to bag the trig. In good condition with views to the south and west.

Easy to find trig, on North Downs Way above Brabourne just off road. Handy stile although take care on the barbed wire, visited it during 6 1/2 mile walk, starting from Hastingleigh Church, infact passed by en route back as well, but didn't climb stile a second time. After passing it on way back, the heavens opened !!

Best Kent trig point so far. Good views across to Ashford on another beautiful, late summer's day. Metal cap missing and hole in the concrete at one bottom corner of the pillar hence recorded as slightly damaged.

Visited whilst walking NDW on a lovely sunny day so great views. Condition as previously recorded. Accessible over a barbed wire fence but the farmer seems to have anticipated this and built in a semblance of a stile. Field now used as cow pasture.
