Pulled in at small car park at Stroud Bridge on east side of road through Wareham Forest. Along bridleway heading north for about 800 metres, beneath electricity lines. At junction with track turned east. Clump of pine trees to north east with a mound of higher ground visible beyond. After about 150 metres headed north east through trees, possibly a track at one time but not well worn. Pillar visible on top of the mound. No obvious route. Direct line was a bit tricky through ferns, tussocks of grass and gorse. Loose scree of ash from a fire . A scramble. Good views although limited by trees to south. Cap plugged. FB etched in similar way to others in the area. Sadly.

It took an hour's solid walking (on a very warm afternoon) west from Gore Heath to find this pillar perched on the south face of an ancient hill fort overlooking Wareham Forest. Lovely location and plenty of gorse in full bloom.

Parked at Woolsbarrow car park. Follow path all the way into the forest. Pink signs with arrows will direct you to the hillfort. Recommend you follow the paths from the south of the hillfort to reach the summit & the trig point which is also located on the ridge facing the south. The best route to take is shown in 21qazxsw photo. I have also done a YouTube video documenting this trig & how to locate. Just search: Rufus Gazelle or copy & paste this link: https://youtu.be/V8bZPFY_6vc

I'm logging this a week after our visit and using the notes Lisa used to record dates, times and info, under info she as written F**K OFF T**T, I can only assume this refers to me, we parked South of the pillar and got within 200 meters of the trig when Lisa decided she did not fancy the steep climb to the pillar, at this stage we spilt up and she went in search of a steadier path, after 5 minutes at the pillar I made my way back down to the main path and headed to the car, I waited and waited and waited, eventually a phone call had me driving down the road to Wareham forest caravan park where a a strange woman had turned up lost and confused lol.

Parked at the car park to the SSW of the trig, then walked along the path up to the summit (see route attached). Once at the summit, there was a small narrow path to the left that led to the trig. Trig was in good condition, centre tube filled with asphalt, rear sighthole open, all other sightholes closed. I left a 2p coin in the rear sighthole for the next visitor to find. The spider was stamped with "JRW 2017" and the flush bracket was stamped with "JOHN ROY WARD 1963 4 2017" & a ladybird. Is he on T:UK? I'm guessing that this was his 4th trig pillar of 2017?

Walked up from CP to SW after a very nice day in Wareham to celebrate our wedding anniversary. A very fine small hillfort, on a wonderful sunny evening, shame the trees now obscure what might have been vg views from this trig. Trig in vgc - W s/hole open, E buried and others closed. Asphalt cap, spider stamped 4 JRW 2017 - wonder who s/he was?

I love Iron Age Forts and this, my first visit to Woolsbarrow, was enhanced by a singing yellowhammer who was perched atop the pillar as I approached. I waited for a full five minutes enjoying the performance before it eventually flew off. This is a very small fort of just over two acres with a single bank and ditch, with fine all round views across the brilliantly purple heather - I noted Charborough Tower to the north.
