At Wheatham Hill - info from Wikipedia: At 249 metres (817 ft), Wheatham Hill is one of the highest hills in the county of Hampshire, England. It is part of the North Hampshire Downs. Much of the hill is covered in mixed forest and there is a trig point at 244 metres, which is also the site of Cobbett's View. According to a nearby information panel: "The excellent views from this hilltop were first noted in 1822 when William Cobbett rode through here, and subsequently published his "Rural Rides". '...out we came, all in a moment, at the very edge of the hanger! And never, in all my life, was I so surprised and so delighted! I pulled up my horse, and sat and looked; and it was like looking from the top of a castle down into the sea; except that the valley was land not water' [2] Until 2010 this viewpoint had been lost for many years under recent tree growth. Yet an old trig point (triangulation station) remained to indicate that the view had once been visible for OS maps to be surveyed. And so Countryside Rangers felled these trees to reveal the spectacular views that Cobbett so much admired.

From country lane between Steep Marsh and Wheatham, footpath goes almost straight uphill from road triangle. Over a couple of stiles into woods known as The Hangers. Follow path to left still climbing uphill, quite steep for a while. Eventually levels out. After about four hundred metres by information board on right about Cobbett’s View go through gate and climb a little further to locate trig pillar. Excellent views to the north.

Bagged as YSM0567 Oakshott. Ah Oakshott the green trig 100m from the parking, not! I'm taking that Mr U2 to trading standards for false advertising! I had this marked in red on the spreadsheet and couldn't remember why....once near GZ it all became clear, I have no idea how Mr U2 though it was only 100m to it..... Last one of the day and we decided to be sensible and head to hotel for an early tea, we hadn't finished a single day on our list so far but we were both tired teds and knew it was for the best. However it all went Pete Tong when the restaurant at the Travel Lodge was closed as the chef wanted to get rat *rsed! So we then had TandooriGate where the bloke at the Travel Lodge told us the curry house was 2 minutes away (more like 20!), hurricane Henry came early and soaked us both through to the bone, I decided I couldn't go on - hand to the forehead, I am about to faint, just leave me here.....and Mr U2 had to eat in Pizza Express..... He will never let me live this down......... #12 day#3 - followed by TandooriGate Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

When we planned this, one of us said it was only 100m. When we arrived, it was defo a lot longer than 100m. A nice walk on the nature reserve to the pillar which is also a pokeystop. Result. Now back to the hotel for some food. Hopefully there won't be any dramatics.

Approached this from the WSW. Parked at the junction of Cockshott Lane and Old Litten Lane, although you could drive further up Old Litten Lane (gravel track) and park where the "no motor vehicles" sign is. Walked NE along the track (Old Litten Lane), then up the steps on the left to the trig. Great views from up there. No sheep anywhere. Trig in good condition with original metal cap, front and left sightholes open, rear & right sightholes closed. I left a 2p coin in the front sighthole for the next visitor to find.

Walked across from the nearby Warren Corner trig on a very damp and misty day. Paths muddy, not a pleasant day for trig hunting. Pillar is located just off the public path, up a steep embankment where helpful steps have been cut into the bank. Area around the pillar has been cleared allowing some extensive views. Pillar in good condition. Wheatham Hill, a HuMP, nearby.

On a long walk today on an absolutely gorgeous autumnal day with the trees looking their colourful best. William Cobbett riding through this area in 1822 said of this countryside that it is 'beautiful beyond description'. It also put me in mind of Edward Thomas's poem 'Digging.'

Been here several times over the years (the pub at Steep is a good draw with a stiff walk uphill afterwards to burn off the calories) - delighted to see that the vegetation has been cleared and the views to the north opened up (even if the A3 turning to Borden wouldn't qualify as a beautiful sight!). Some very interesting (rare breed?) sheep on site, according to the notices they are charged with lawn mowing duties!
