Logged pillar as damaged as it has a lean to the south meaning it would no longer be suitable for survey activities. Other than the lean the pillar is in a good state of repair. Great views.

Pillar visible from road on south west. Pulled over on roadside. Along private footpath around field edge. Through gate and over low electric fence to get to pillar. Cliff edge is alarmingly close to the gate. Coast path has been eroded. Pillar’s day’s could be numbered. Dramatic views along the coast, large waves knocking the shore about.

Bagged this one while doing the Isle of Wight Coastal Path walk. The pillar is quite near the cliff edge and only ten metres from the walking path. In a field full of sheep, guarded by barbed wire fences on three sides and a flimsy electric fence on the cliff side. The pillar can be seen when driving along Military Road opposite the Dinosaur Expedition Centre. Great coastal views back towards The Needles.

Parked at Whale Chine Car Park. No charge. Walked along the coastal path to the Pearl Centre return. A magnificent route. The trig is located over a fence. Spider intact. The views outmatch the location of this pillar.

Saw this from the car by chance, so parked on the road immediately opposite, quick sprint across the field to get to it. Not a bad spot, trig is sinking, probably go over the edge one day with the erosion around here!

Easily accessible and highly visible being just off the cliff top public footpath. I parked at the road junction near Cowleaze Chine and walked north-west along the cliffs. However, access from the road would also be possible. Pillar in good condition and still retains an original plug. Lovely location.

Parked on grass verge on opposite side of road and walked towards coast. Pillar is easily spotted from road, it can even be seen on Google maps ! Barbed wire has to be climbed to gain access to trig. I kept my eye on a Range Rover which was cruising round the field but I guess he was the warden checking up on campers, he never bothered me. Good viewpoint.

Easily spotted up on the coast footpath from the main road. I did however have to traverse private land and one barbed wire fence in order to reach the Trig. The location is nice with good coast views and a nearby bench to rest a while. The O/S website lists the computing year as 1942 and the height a/s/l as 53.623 metres (175.93 feet).
