Bit of a sad location this one - Pillar is located on service road that goes round the back of the houses in Belroyal Aveneue (you can drive all the way) looks like it a bit of a tipping area and it is getting lost in rubble and garden rubbish. conditon appeared good to me.

Not sure how to log this - as it like a donkeys hind leg! - I suppose as far as the OS are concerned it is good, as far as the achitect is concerned is has to be damaged, interesting nether the less. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_St_Mary_and_All_Saints,_Chesterfield

2012-12-21 11:39 - TP8131 (Glympton)

2012-11-22 10:31 - TP6702 (Walderton Down)
Moved and Toppled - I parked to the North West at the road junction then along foot path then "public way" then "got lost" and followed farm track to location - pillar has been moved from its field location and has been left lying on its side in a small clump off trees - felt tresspassy, didn't hang around long as I could hear shotguns and dogs so took a hasty retreat. quiet downland views saw several red dear and a dead stag in the woods. Strange lumps of concrete nearby looks like the remians of another pillar - thoughts?? - Better than average score for this as it completes all the pillars in Sussex (East & West) :)
2012-11-22 09:32 - TP3013 (Easton Farm)
I asked for permission at Easton Farm and it was no problem - the guy went on to tell me where the pillar is located and said with a raised eyebrow "there's not much to see you know" some people just don't understand :) Pillar looks good enough for a "good" log only very minor chips seen a lot worse - low lever farming area very quiet.
2012-11-22 08:34 - TP4782 (Merston)
I asked at the farm for permission on this one, as there was lots of activity going on in the fields. The guy I spoke too did not know of it - I found out why after, it is located on the land of the next farm! as it is located on the west side of the stream (which is the farm boundry) so i didn't have permission after all :) Pillar good condition, farmland area low lying. Parking in layby on the A259 North of Pillar.

2012-11-07 07:10 - TP9399 (City Hall Cupola)

2012-11-05 16:54 - TP5360 (Pen Lan Fach)

Impressive Tower - no sign of a mast.
2012-11-05 16:21 - TP10088 (Kilvey Hill)
Parking to the South then along the paths past "Centre Barks" (great name :)) then up to the top - pillar was located on a small clearing and there is certainly a square block there where it used to be, is this the "Conversion"? it does not look like a broken off pillar, is this where the buired block is? - nice views anyway.

2012-11-02 14:08 - TP4128 (Jacobswell)
I parked to the North and followed the footpath to the woods then over low broken barbwire fence and over to pillar - good condition reasonable view and pleasant short walk. Bit of a change to surroundings since first image taken in 2004 by Peregrinus. The Hedge lines on the current 25K are no longer there and it is on large field with some horses at the far South today, there is a Golf course next door now too, look to me as if it could be due for expansion to include the pillar?

2012-10-15 17:09 - TP3125 (Faversham Resr)
Revisited today as was unable to get close last time - approach was parking to the East next to bus stop and then along field edge along side of house and water board compound, then up the bank through the nettles, through the brambles, over to the 5 foot wall, scale the wall, through the nettles, through the brambles to the bramble covered steps, fight your way through the brambles and up the bramble covered steps to the top of the reservoir, pillar is located in the far left corner hidden in bushes, simples!! good condition farmland views - good score due to getting to it!! :)

2012-10-12 12:44 - TP1656 (Broadreed Farm)
Parked to North West by the bend in the lane then along footpaths through the woods - pillar was located in a field of 7 foot high Corn - so was a challenge finding it and would of not been possible without GPS, it was a bit like a scene From Stephen King's "Children Of The Corn":) at least it is not possible to trample crops when they are over a foot above your head! - pillar is in reasonable conditon with slight cracking and located in a small clearing in the corn. no views except corn!
2012-10-12 11:25 - TP1544 (Bow Hill)
I parked in the car park to the North then followed a long clockwise loop up to this one, there are some great views on the way - pillar is located just off the ROW and is good condition apart from a few minor cracks - no views at pillar some great ones a few meters away.

Destroyed image taken into original field
2012-10-12 09:42 - TP5229 (Oldwick Farm)
I had a look at this a while ago but considered it a little exposed on a busy day - tried again today, when i arrived there today the farmer and land owner was chatting at the end of the path to the pillar, permission was readily given with and explaination of where to look - not sure of this is the same land owner mentioned by Clanfield Rambler - Pillar is in good condition and located against fence and covered in ivy - farmland views.
2012-10-11 16:17 - TP9920 (Bethersden Air Beacon)
Location was just off Pluckley Road - next to footpath - certainly nothing here now not even any remains as far as I could see - Destroyed - updated 14th October Google Earth 2003 shows what appears to be the marks where the feet of the tower would of been - see http://www.mycetes.co.uk/a/page16.html for more info about Air Beacons.
2012-10-11 15:41 - TP1539 (Boughton Place)

Water tower in compound - Lighting Conductor is visible even in the thick fog! - all appears in good condition.
2012-10-11 14:49 - TP6849 (Westwell)
Followed MCL's route to this one (Thanks Martyn) although I did come back through the woods to the lane - Pillar is in good condition and was difficult to find at this time of the year, it is located about 1m back from the fence so a quick hop over is required - farmland views and very quiet.
2012-10-11 14:15 - TP9638 (Ashford Railway Tower)
Ashford Station Tower - looks to be about the only remaining part of this station most of the rest looks to be for the bulldozer.
2012-10-11 13:31 - TP9893 (Folkestone Harbour)
Wasn't sure how to log this one - this is on the end of a deserted pier (see log for lighthouse) the end section is fenced off, so technically it is "inaccessible", however the Bolt is visible a few feet from the base of the light house with a yellow triangle around it - what do you think?
2012-10-11 13:31 - TP9892 (Folkestone Lighthouse)
Fairly intersting this for an Intersection - Parking to the west in the pay £1 car park and then along to the pier, the route takes you through a deserted railway station, along the platform (which has a strange statue in the middle of the tracks) then out onto to pier, it appears to be completly defunked and looks like an H&S hot spot, the lighthouse is located at the far end and appears to be in good condition.
2012-10-11 13:14 - TP10071 (Dover Hill)
Revisit to this one to have another look at the remains that i first saw a few years ago - pretty sure the base is all that remains - very wet and foggy up here today so no views.
2012-10-11 13:14 - TP2821 (Dover Hill)
Revisit a few years on - no change - still foggy up here!!
2012-10-11 12:51 - TP9895 (Admiralty Pier Lighthouse)

2012-10-11 12:51 - TP9897 (Breakwater Lighthouse East)
One of three lighthouses around Dover Harbour - appears to be in good condition - camera not good enough to take images in these conditions and at that range.
2012-10-11 12:50 - TP9894 (Prince of Wales Pier Lighthouse)
Got confused with these lighthouses as there are so many - i think this one is not here anymore - other 3 clearly visible. camera not good enough for decent pictures at this range in these conditions.

Like others I parked at the Dover Patrol Monument to the South then along the Saxon Shore Way along cliff top then West along the side of a huge field, then along edge of golf course to the pillar - it is located just on the course side and the western edge of the course - good condtion hard against what appears to be a new fence - nice walk over and good views, if you look away from the golf course.
2012-10-11 10:49 - TP7658 (St Margarets At Cliffe)
What a huge one! - a monster River located next to footpath sign - was buried about 6 inches down since Arnand's visit two years ago - all in good condition - left dug up and exposed for now.
2012-10-11 10:00 - TP3122 (Farthingloe)
Parked in Farthingloe Road to the North East then up the steep footpath (45 degree steep!!) which is a challange - mind you so was comming down in the rain, then along the "road" across the top to the pillar - condition looks good to me apart from a hole in the tarmac plug - good views.
2012-10-11 08:55 - TP7891 (Castle Hill)

2012-09-20 16:56 - TP2115 (Chapel Hill)
Parking to the West at end of footpath, then over the road and find a hole in the hedge - field empty at this time of the year so walking over not a problem, overlooked by a house, not sure if it is the farmhouse? - pillar slightly damaged looks like it has been hit by the tractor a few times - farmland views.
2012-09-20 16:37 - TP4543 (Lords Bridge)
Parked next to gate ("Gate 3") on A603 to the South West of the main gate, then over the gate (there is a strickly private Cambridge University sign on it) Pillar is located in the field to the left, stubble to day so walking over to it was not a problem - interesting location looks semi deserted? had a tresspassy feel about it - pillar good condition farm land views to the North - Space age views to the South and East.
2012-09-20 16:14 - TP2448 (Coton)
Easily located about 100m from the road with parking at the end - pillar is located in the right hand hedge and was not that easy to spot this time of the year. I usually would of had a stamp down of the plant growth for a better picture, but decided against that as neighbours were in the garden and it might be thier hedge - pillar good condition farmland views.
2012-09-20 06:25 - TP4886 (Monk Field)
Lucky to of survived this one due to all the developement going on in this area, pillar good condition and located on footpath urban views (well now there are) seen some changes over the year no doubt.
2012-09-19 15:55 - TP2161 (Chimhams Farm)
This is one of those that has bugged me for a while and I have had several half hearted attempts over the last few years - today was successfull - Access from the small business park to the South then "get lost" on the footpath (I went with the intention of asking at the farm but was unable to find anyone around) Pillar is located about 400m from the farm in stubble today. Farmland view and over to Brands Hatch - this must be one of the least visited pillars (along with Scudders Hill) in the south!
2012-09-19 13:23 - TP3463 (Great Mount)
Second time lucky for this one - access no problem - I parked near the pub to the south west (ish) that is where the bridleway crosses the lane then along the bridleway to the north of the pillar, there is a small wooden gate on the right at TQ5187671231 which was open and there are no private signs, from there followed my nose up to the top. Pillar is in good condition and is located in thick bramles, no longer on any form of lawn. no view.
2012-09-19 12:41 - TP5858 (Scudders Hill)

This (along with Chimhams Farm) must be one of the least visited pillars in the south!
2012-09-13 17:57 - TP7438 (Water End)
I will go for Destroyed for this one - found location easy enough, the concrete has been "repaired" at some time and looks like the Rivet was covered or removed in the process. EABM (Enviorment Agency Bench Mark?) on opposite barrier support.
2012-09-13 17:46 - TP1377 (Birchwood Cottages)
"Low hanging fruit" this one parking next to road junction and quick pop into woods - pillar in good condition and painted white - I think I got a couple of strange looks while squatting down next to pillar for the FB Image!!

I Parked in Pooleys Lane to the to the East (ish) then along farm track past stables and then along grotty fly tip footpath over to pillar, slightly damaged with a small lump out of the top (looks if an attempt has been made on the Spider?) - average views, bit too urban for me liking.

2012-09-10 13:35 - TP7177 (Cat and Fiddle)
Stop the press! - Traffic cone has gone and the FBM is now covered by a pile of rocks. I spoke to the Landlord he said cone kept blowing away, and then people keep driving into it! so a "cairn" seems to of done the trick - I carefully removed the rock, took my images and re-covered it. FBM is a bit knocked about, great views.
2012-09-10 12:53 - TP2407 (Corbar Hill)

2012-09-06 18:17 - TP3697 (Headhone Farm)
I don't hold out much hope for this one, it appears to be inline for an expansion of the landfill site, I have had a look for this one a few times over the years and each time it's circumstances look to of changed, the last time i looked a few weeks ago and was unable to find it, it was somewhere in a huge hedge, today this hedge has been chopped down to pillar height and looks to me if it is going to be removed alltogether. I approached for the South East and parked at the road junction at Lidsey then along the footpath (which is diverted from that shown on OS map) after you have crossed the drive to landfill site along the other half of the footpath along a high fence, after 500 yrd (approx) there is a high gate, which you can easily slip past then along the track for 100m (approx) to the pillar, it is leaning now and is located a few meters past the gap as you head to the power line pole. The landfill is agressively private so I opted for an evening "raid" after it was closed.
2012-09-06 17:55 - TP5967 (Shripney Bersted)
I Parked in the "Works" on the 25k OS map to the East it appears to be a caravan site for immigrant farm workers judging by the collection of Polish and eastern European cars parked there, I parked along side and took the path from there along to the dyke then over to pillar, felt a bit tresspassy, but had no problems, despite there being several farm vehicles about. Pillar is in good condition and located on bank of dyke, farmland views.
2012-09-06 17:05 - TP8681 (White Dell)

Parked on other side of the road in Holcot Lane, bit of a Hedgehog Run over the road, Pillar located on bank of estury and was completely covered in plant growth, took some stamping down to reveal it, it appeared to be in good condition to me, nice views of estury. One of the lowest pillars?
2012-09-06 05:42 - TP9620 (Gasworks Clock Tower)
No Gas Works, No Clock Tower, nothing here but an industrial estate. Destroyed.
2012-09-03 14:18 - TP3982 (Holmshill)
Parking just along Buckettsland Lane in a layby then an easy walk to road junction, pillar is located in the nearest corner of the small copse in field - access no problem today as field in stubble, there is a sign suggesting that there is a ploughing competition on 15th Sept, might be a good day to bag it. - pillar complete and lying on it side. Should be both "Moved" & "Toppled"
2012-09-03 14:00 - TP0884 (Arkley Resr)
Parked in Golf Course carpark for this one then along edge of course easy pop up onto top of reservoir, got a couple of odd looks from Golfers :) Pillar in good condition Golf course type views.
2012-09-03 12:45 - TP0387 (Wormley)
The challange with this one is knowing where to park, after a bit of driving around i opted to park in Winniepeg Way then up bank past canal and onto dual carriage way section to main A10 Roundabout (look out for traffic) Rivet is located in the concrete end of the crash barrier and is in good condition, totally uninteresting location.
2012-09-03 11:13 - TP3634 (Harolds Park Farm)
Parked at the huge Riding Stables (no one seemed to mind as there was so many people around ;)) Pillar is located a short distance along a foot path to the East of the main building, good condition sinking a tad, farmland views.
2012-09-03 10:37 - TP4887 (Monkhams Hall)

Views over to the city of London and Canary Wharf, nice area.

2012-08-10 10:16 - TP9917 (Shoreham Airport Tower Beacon)
I found this interesting for an Intersection, living locally I know this area well, the Airport building is interesting with lots of history and well worth a visit and a cup of tea in the cafe too :). It was apparent that there was no Beacon on the roof, so I found an Ex RAF Navigator who was there today promoting the Airshow there in a few days. He informed me the beacon was moved a few years ago and was relocated in the centre of the Airfield, he said it was on the roof from when he first flew there in the 1950's. There is another Air Beacon outside the main building that has a lable on it advising that it used to be located on Leith Hill(TP7362)perhaps another OS Intersection? I was given a contact number to hopefully arrange for a closer visit. Better than average score for an intersection due to the history. Grid Ref Approx.
2012-08-09 16:40 - TP3748 (Hertford Heath)
Easily located on Hertford Heath a few hundred meters from the end of the lane - Pillar Good Condition no views due to tree cover.

2012-08-08 17:43 - TP2597 (Croft)
Easy walk up from the road - nice little hill top next to large Granite Quarry - Hill disapearing! hopefully it survives. - Pillar pinted and appears in reasonable condition to me, great view.

Thought i would have a look for this one dispite having no sketch with me - Bingo there it was - all appears to be in good condition and is located in the grass where the dry stone wall "T" junction is - very quiet loverly area.

Agreed - nothing here, looks to of been somewhere the seat is now? - crap area - decent views. Lock your car!
2012-08-06 18:04 - TP1899 (Candover)
Looks simple on the map this one, have another look at the contour lines! :) The footpath to the East is passable but not for everyone except a mountain goat, i got up it but it sure was a challange in the rain! I would suggest it is one of the steepest footpaths in this part of the world, once you're at the top and got your breath back it is an easy walk along the field edge to the point where the map suggests the footpath heads off past the pillar, there was no path apparent through the corn so took a diversion along and onto some tractor tracks. Pillar in good condition and is located about 50m into field - nice area loverly views and dead quiet.
2012-08-06 05:29 - TP6128 (St Georges Hill)
This is one of those that I have been pondering over for a while and driven by several times - access was straightforward (although felt odd) I parked on the verge next to the roundabout to the North East and proceded to the secruity barrier, as commented by Trigpoint100 the barrier is not manned, there is a sign that states "Tag Holders Only" and there is a small white pedestrian gate at the left which is locked, but it is an easy squeeze by, easy walk along to the compound and was quiet at this time of the morning (i dont think residents here go to work!) There are some serious houses here it is indeed "Beverly Hills". Pillar is located in a compound surrounded by a small black spikey fence, which is a very easy hop over, good condition pillar, interesting area, extra points for the secret squirrel approach.

Good condition and intersting water tower, bagged while at the Pillar.
2012-08-03 11:02 - TP8810 (Clayhall Lane)
Pleased to find this one with no sketch - got to approx GPS location and started proding with the latest addition to me "Trigging Kit" an Army folding spade, after a few minutes "clunk" something solid - bit of digging later and there it was - all in good condition, it is located 3 meters from the telegraph pole and 1 meter for the verge edge of the white line. - good score given due to succes factor :)
2012-08-03 10:33 - TP8811 (Hops Farm)
I think this one needs a status all of it's own something like "Not a good idea to dig up someones lawn to find it" :) suggest it will still be there but it appears to be under a lawn section outside riding stables something i was not prepared to dig up.
2012-08-02 17:10 - TP7555 (Polebrook West)
Agreed - certainly no sign of either pillar, interesting location with the Memorial and old Air Force buildings - there are piles of earth and stuff everywhere so fingers crossed the pillars or at least the remains might be around, in anyone can find them Peregrinus can!

Second time lucky for this one, yesterday i read the logs and carefully measured out the 3m from the culvert and 2.5m from the road, no luck! so gave up - got back to hotel and read logs properly this time and relalised i was going in the wrong direction - twit! :) Second attempt no problems found after a few minutes of proding still located under small slab (replaced) all appears in good condition. Image of OS sketch uploaded.
2012-08-01 18:24 - TP0207 (Glaston)
Parking very close in the layby - Pillar located on top of a large pile of earth - looks man made? is it the "spoil" from the railway tunnel that runs underneath? Pillar good condition farmland views.
2012-08-01 18:08 - TP4583 (Luffenham Heath)
Parked at the roadside to the North East then along the field edge along two side, Pillar is in good condition and is located in the hedge appears all in good condition, farmland views.
2012-08-01 17:43 - TP7558 (North Luffenham South)
Great find!! - what an interesting place! - I have to say I felt that I was going to be arrested at any time by the Military Police, it looks like it was left in a hurry with all sorts of stuff lying around, Jets, Vehicles and Bombs! - loved it :) - Pillar in recently harvested hay field - slightly damaged at the top, very different views. I parked at the dead end lane to the North East and stepped over the very low fence once you have ignored the tresspassing and official secrets acts signs it is a straightforward walk across to the pillars.
2012-08-01 17:35 - TP7559 (North Luffenham North)

Called at door no one in - so went over for a visit - didn't dig up the flowerbed for a FB image though - Pillar in good condition and has a flower pot on top.
2012-08-01 17:10 - TP8894 (Collyweston Water Tower Beacon)
Not sure about this one - water tower certianly there - as for a "Beacon" no sign of anything i would describe as a "Beacon" - going with Possibly missing - thoughts??

Short walk along the bridleway - Pillar is located a few meters off the path to the right where the woods end on the left hand side. Good condition some interesting concrete structures around.
2012-08-01 16:10 - TP7175 (Castor)
Easily located FBM makes a change from road side ones - located under a Horse Chesnut tree (well it has Conkors on it) so I would suggest it not to be a Sycamore :) - FBM in Good condition.

2012-07-31 17:42 - TP7391 (Hodmore Farm)
Parking in farm entrance, not that easy to find, well not this time of the year, Surface block is located on the bank and lost in the hedge - take the OS sketch with you and mark out the 9.10m from the corner, then get up into base of hedge, all appears to be in good condition.
2012-07-26 11:19 - TP5536 (Pudding Hill)
Parked at the Discovery Centre and walked off to this one - very quiet in the woods as everyone else "Going Ape" - pillar in good condition located just off the main path - off to County Top of Surrey Hill a mile or so South East.

2012-07-23 18:44 - TP7905 (Caesars Camp)
Walked over from Bricksbury Hill - Great location with amazing views - Being buried i will have to go with Inaccessible - it looks like it might under the bench in my image.
2012-07-23 18:35 - TP7861 (Bricksbury Hill)
No Pillar here - looked around to see if was toppled like Hungry Hill near by - no such luck - great area - amazing views.
2012-07-23 17:33 - TP0632 (Basingstoke FBM Aux 1)
Go with the flow here - certainly no sign - it looks like it was between where the two small trees are now.

I parked at the end of the Byway to the East and headed North for a few hundred meters then through waterboard reservior compound - hopped over fence at far end and out into field - pillar is in good condition - had a bit of a tresspassy feel about it - farmland views.
2012-07-19 18:52 - TP8216 (Shoreham High Resr)
Weather better today so hoping over fence not a problem - lowest on the North East corner - Bolt (small Rivet type one) is located on the surround of a round concrete structure - all appears to be in good condition - nice South Downs area. Updated 04/08/2012 - looking on Google Earth I think there might be 2 as it appears to be a few meters from the one i found, i will return ASAP. Udate 10/08/2012 - Revisited looked where Google Earth suggests and was unable to find anything else.
2012-07-19 14:42 - TP1107 (Beacon Hill Catchment)
I parked over to the South West and walked over to this one - nice area lots of Army activity going on - Pillar good condition and surrounded by trees. pillar being used as part of manovers, there was a clip board on the top with numbers on. See image.
2012-07-19 13:19 - TP3818 (Highbury)
Parked at the Chapel to the South East then along what looks like a footpath (although not marked on map) then off to the North West at next gate - bit tresspassy - pillar is located in next field over barbed wire and electric fence next to horse paddock - pillar good condition not much in the way of views.
2012-07-19 05:40 - TP0321 (Monkton Lane)
I asked at the gate house and permission was readily given (think he might of assumed i was from OS ;)) Large Bolt located just inside secure compound on edge of raised drain - Good Condition.
2012-07-18 06:14 - TP9919 (Brenchley Air Beacon)
There is no Beacon here - site is now a private garden so unable to see if there are any remains (which at best would be of the frame not the Beacon it's self) - found this information on the net, http://www.mycetes.co.uk/a/page16.html. OS data - PPINT5 BRENCHLEY AIR BEACON 1 BEACON Dest 04/49 1 N FIG5 1938 Nice viewpoint and Topograph a few meters to the East.
2012-07-18 05:35 - TP2630 (Crowborough)
Revisit 7 year on - condition unchanged - Pillar good condition with grafitti and peeling paint - no views at all!
2012-07-16 18:16 - TP9941 (St Richards Church Tower Cross)
Looks like Church has been rebuilt? - I am no expert but the current Church looks a lot more modern and certainly does not have a "Tower Cross" - OS Data CROSS DEMOLISHED 0994 - Internet Data - Before 1994 this was the most distinguished modern church in Crawley. It was built in 1952-54 to the design of N F Cachemaille-Day and Partners (ICBS/60 Churches p96) and showed distinct continental influence, in architecture and liturgy. A flat-roofed glazed rotunda, perhaps unconsciously echoing E G Asplundís Stockholm Town Hall of 1921-28, surmounted a cube-shaped main part and the influence of the French architect Auguste Perret was also apparent. Inside, it was the only church in Crawley with a central altar. A hall to the north could be opened into the church, but a planned east extension was never built. The church was declared redundant in 1993. Its site was sold and the church demolished. A new one with the same dedication, but on a different site in Gales Drive, was opened in 1995. Rivet also listed for the same site - also Destroyed.
2012-07-12 18:49 - TP0764 (Shurland)
Looks like the best approach is from the footpath to the North then left at first field junction then right at the next - Pillar is located in field to left of that field edge unfortunatley the field is currently full of 5 foot high wet Oil Seed Rape, which would be virtually impossible to get through - GPS suggests it is 130m out in the field, felt tresspassy too - will return. Certainly Inaccessilbe at the moment.
2012-07-12 18:08 - TP4121 (Isle Of Harty)
Parked at The Ferry Inn, then along to footpath near the river slipway, along footpath to top gate then along scrubby area at top of river bank - pillar is in good condition and looks out over the Swale a very remote area for this part of South East.
2012-07-10 18:50 - TP6150 (Stanage Edge)

2012-07-06 09:42 - TP3946 (Hindleap)
Revisit to this one 7 years on - I think I first came to all the pillars on Ashdown Forest in the 70's on a Scout map reading exercise, loverly area, lots of great walks and views. There is some strange minor damage around the sight hole below the FB looks like a chain or something has been places round it?,

Walked over via Milk Hill, (County top by a tiny bit above Tan Hill) from the car park about 3.5k to East - agreed there is no longer a pillar here there looks to be some new fencing along the edge of the field - saw some intersting Rams on the way over too see image :)

2012-06-21 19:15 - TP1701 (Brown Clee Hill)
I suggest this one need a catagory all of it's own, needs to be "Recycled" i suppose one mans vandalism is anothers art? - i personally found it different and interesting, is this unique? as FB and Spider being made into something else? At least it survives in part. I parked at the Bridleway to the west, great little evening walk up lots of Sheep and Rabbits, very boggy underfoot great views all the way - great location. extra point at it is Pillar number 750 :).
2012-06-21 07:49 - TP9247 (Bolton Town Hall Dome)

2012-06-13 18:49 - TP3472 (Great Widmoor Wood)

GPS shows 76m

2012-06-08 15:59 - TP7688 (Icomb Tower)
Agreed - there is no tower here now let alone a bolt.
2012-06-08 14:39 - TP7974 (Broadway Tower)
Tower well worth a visit, it will cost £4.50 interesting museum. agree with previous logs nothing apparent on the roof (assuming it was on the roof and not on the ground nearby?)I asked the guy that worked there, he had no knowledge of anything OS related, I asked if there was access to the turrets, and was advised not unless you have a ladder, so would suggest it is not on the turrets. Amazing views - so windy today.
2012-06-08 12:26 - TP5706 (Robinswood Hill)

2012-06-08 09:37 - TP0809 (Alderton Hill)
I parked at Dumbleton Hotel and over to this one - it is a tresspassy one and there is a "no right of way" sign on the gate leading to the hill. I skirted round the hill to the left and therefore did not see the sign ;) - it is a steep climb up with no defined path - Pillar is in good condition and is located within a group of young beech trees, and surrounded in lots of nettles - some good views to be had from the top. I came down the North side, with hindsight this would of been an easier way up too.
2012-06-06 17:44 - TP5550 (Quainton Resr)
I parked at the footpath junction to the south and walked up Swans Way to this one (make sure you go to left of the farm and not over the cattle grid as the path goes away from the reservior - as i did to start with!) - pillar is in good condition and located on the edge of the reservoir, low wooded fence surrounds the area and there are several gaps and missing railings, good views of surround area.

Not too much of a problem getting into compound, nothing that some lateral thinking and a little limbo dancing didnt sort out ;)the south side of the compound. - pillar in good condition as you would expect being locked away like this - no view due to tree cover.
2012-05-08 18:35 - TP1830 (Bygrave)
I drove all the way to this, although I felt i should not have, if you know the feeling? Although there were no signs to suggest it was private, the farm track continues on from small industrial area. Pillar good condition farmland area.
2012-05-08 18:00 - TP8795 (Galley Hill)
This gets a good score for a Surface Block, as rather than the usual road side thing, it is located in the RSPB nature reserve and is a mile or so walk from the car park, interesting area and worth a visit. Block is located on the bank of what looks like and old fort. There is the faint remians of the Benchmark arrow in the conrete base I assume an older mark here?
2012-05-07 13:29 - TP8216 (Shoreham High Resr)
locked compound around this one, so unable to get in, might be able to get over (or under) fence - not today though as very muddy.

2012-04-26 17:42 - TP8812 (The Peak)
I Parked at the Golf Course for this and walked along the South Downs Way for about 1.5K to this one - this is a good location for a Surface Block, better that the usual side of the road sites. Slight damage, looks like it has been hit by a lawn mower a few times - located just off the South Downs Way by about 3 meters to the East, North West of small Tumulus (shown on OS map). Great views over the Downs and to Eastbourne.

Don't bother with this one unless you're obsessed! (Guilty as charged) - there is a footpath between the houses to the west of the pillar, where you can access the railway line (look out for trains) I then walked along the edge of the track (non electric) and scrambled up the bank which is very steep and very brambled, pillar is easy once you get to top of embankment. Good condition, crap area and views. Updated 24/03/2012 - I have got so many scrathes on my legs! :)

2005-12-12 13:45 - TP0452 (Palm Bay)
Easily located Rivet, next to slip road. Good condition. take the OS sketch with you for this one.
2005-12-12 11:38 - TP2164 (Chislet Colly)
I think this is possibly an X trig - the site is a new (still under construction) business center, If it is (or the remains of) still around it would be in a thicket behind the business park. I got to within 80 meters from both directions. Earlier maps show a small hillock where the park is now. I think this is worth another go in better weather.
2005-12-09 15:03 - TP6050 (Socknersh Manor)
Approched this one from the wrong side, so could only get within about 2 meters, due to fence with barbed wire. Pillar in good condition.
2005-12-09 12:06 - TP2451 (Cottenden)
Located about 120 meters up farm track, next to paddock, pillar is hard against a fence, so accessing the FB is a bit difficult.
2005-12-08 15:49 - TP5475 (Playdells Farm)
Second visit to this one, this time managed to get closer. Located in the hedge between houses and a paddock, about 75 meters from the lane, only one gate to climb, Pillar is in good condition
2005-12-08 14:44 - TP2054 (Cauldham Farm)
Clearly visable in the middle of a freshly planted field, about 100 meters from bridleway. Due to crops and the amount of mud today I was not going to get any closer. I will leave this for another day
2005-12-08 14:39 - TP0449 (Paddlesworth)
Located in the reservoir compound, at the end of dead end secluded country lane, only one gate to hop over, no private signs. Pillar is in good condition, as commented before not much in the way of views.
2005-12-05 16:01 - TP8984 (Nelsons Monument)
Visited at same time as nearby FBM and Centre.
2005-12-05 10:35 - TP0311 (Down Barn Farm)
The "Centre" is a cross etched into the frame of the drain, the corner is marked with a blob of white paint, which is almost worn away. My 200th Trig!
2005-12-05 10:21 - TP0542 (Fareham)
Located next to Nelson Monument, very easy to find, the "playpen" is looking a bit tired, and seems to used as a dumping ground, at the time of this visit, there was an old television and radio lying next to the FBM.
2005-12-02 14:36 - TP0414 (Amberley)
Got it! Buried about 6 inches down. I realise that I was looking in the wrong place last time, as the OS sketch is a little misleading, today I used the photo from the OS. Block is in good condition.
2005-12-02 14:11 - TP2110 (Chanctonbury Ring)
Great South Downs location, very windy today, pillar is in good condition apart from a missing plug. Great views North & South
2005-12-02 12:42 - TP5929 (Shelleys)
Located in the hedge between fields, about 100 meters off the footpath behind what looks like a farm yard dumping ground, loads of farm equipment, hay bails etc. Pillar is in good condition, the base is a little erroded at one side. good views to the south downs, and surrounding farmland
2005-12-01 16:05 - TP5583 (Randall Wood)
This one is definitely missing - As mentioned in Alan Grove's log there is what appears to be the remains of the base in the middle of the forest path. There are also some lumps of concrete in the woods nearby that look like they could possibly be the remains. Strange that this one had to be destroyed.
2005-11-30 15:33 - TP6257 (Summertree Farm)
Almost buried in the hedge - I approached this from the non-footpath side, after a walk up from the road. Pillar has a chunk out of the top corner, and the spider is completly lost in moss and bits of hedge
2005-11-30 15:13 - TP0437 (Wood`s Corner)
Well buried! I had to dig down about 8 inches to find this one - Take the the OS sketch with you for this one, It's exactly where it says.
2005-11-30 13:36 - TP0438 (Cross-At-Hand)
Easy to locate (No digging) next to the kerb stone of traffic island, best take the OS sketch with you.
2005-11-30 12:27 - TP0447 (Eastchurch Holiday Cn)
This area has changed since the OS site photogrph was taken. The Rivet is now located under some fairly substantial gates to a mobile home park. The Rivet itself is a bit bashed about, possibly damaged in the work to fit the gates.
2005-11-30 11:53 - TP3050 (Elmley)
Located in the Nature Reserve next to a dyke, this is a very isolated place for the south east of England, made to feel worse today with a bitter wind. Pillar is in good condition, and appears to be used by the cows as both a scratching post and a Bovine Convenience (see Image)
2005-11-28 15:25 - TP5791 (Salehurst)
Located about 200 meters from the A264 near the Sussex Oak PH. No problem finding as mentioned in previous logs - I parked on the A264 in a small lay-by/farm gate, then walked up through the wood then over a fence next to mast, pillar is located in the corner of the next field and is visable from the mast.Pillar is in good condition and there are reasonable views over the surrounding farmland.
2005-11-28 14:44 - TP2210 (Clay Pits)
Damaged/Definitely Missing - Apart from the base, which is located in the hedge of a field full of sheep. As the previous log, it's a bit of a walk to this one - I parked on the private road to Broxham Manor, just the other side of the DIY level crossing (bit scary!) I then walked for about half a mile across two fields, nice enough walk, with reasonable views. Pity the end result is a lump of concrete in the hedge.
2005-11-28 13:54 - TP7314 (Toys Hill Topograph)
I used to come with my family as a boy, back in the 60's & 70's, I remember this site well. The whole area has changed quite a lot following the bashing it received from the 1987 "Hurrican" Pillar is in good condition, and apart from the OS Information in the centre, there would be no reason to think it anything other than a nice monument. No views due to tree cover.
2005-11-24 12:37 - TP0441 (Motney Hill)
Easy to locate as next to road and no digging required. Good views out to the estuary
2005-11-24 12:33 - TP4934 (Motney Hill)
I got to within about 35 meters of location, and then can up against the fence around the water treatment works. There is a hole in the corner of the fence, but at the time of my visit there were cars parked outside the main water works building, so decided to leave this one for another day! Updated to definitely missing in view of other logs.
2005-11-24 12:05 - TP3125 (Faversham Resr)
Managed to get within about 15 meters of location on GPS, after walking up the side of the warter works (M2 Side) from there you can go around the far end of the compound, the nearest reading was round the far side. It would appear to be on the top of the large concrete reservior under some dense vegitation. There is a place on the side where you could hop over the wall and climb the stairs to the top, not something I was prepared to do today, may be in better weather.
2005-11-24 11:09 - TP5227 (Old Wives Lees)
Nice location, only a few meters from lane, pillar located on top of hillock next to beacon. Pillar is in good condition, reasonable views all around
2005-11-21 16:28 - TP2141 (Cheriton Hill)
Easy located as only a few feet from the road, with near by lay-by. Pillar is in reasonable condition, plug missing. I don't think this was the best example of concrete i've ever seen. No views today as thick (freezing) fog.
2005-11-21 16:12 - TP2821 (Dover Hill)
Located within easy reach of road, no views today as thick (freezing) fog. Pillar is in good condition, as has been painted at some time in the past. Strange lump of concrete near by, poss. old trig?
2005-11-21 16:12 - TP10071 (Dover Hill)
Found this lump of concrete when I visited 11112 - remains of S1790?
2005-11-21 14:14 - TP0451 (Royal St Georges)
This is one of those that looks easy; not so - for three reasons. 1, the rivet is very small (one of the smallest i've seen) 2, It's the same colour as the pebbles in the concrete. 3, The sketch supplied by the OS is not accurate, as it suggests that the rivet is located between fence posts 5 & 6 (from the left) when it is actually between 4 & 5.
2005-11-21 13:52 - TP0450 (Bekesbourne)
Located at the side of the road, next to footpath sign, the large sqare post shown in both the OS picture & sketch has fallen over, so no good as marker.
2005-11-17 14:51 - TP0762 (Sevenoaks Church Tower)
I asked the very nice lady in the church office if I could go up to the roof and have a look, to my suprise, she let me. 140 steps later, I'm on the roof, the bolt it's self looks no more than a nail holding down the lead roof. The image of the bolt was too blured - shame.
2005-11-17 13:15 - TP1125 (Beechmont)
Located just off lane. not far from A21, short walk up to trig. Only one small private sign in a tree to miss ;-) Pillar is in good condition and the are good views over the weald of Kent
2005-11-16 13:56 - TP5634 (Reigate Park)
Nice location high above Reigate - no views due to density of the trees, pillar is in good condition and is painted white.
2005-11-16 13:09 - TP6554 (Town Farm)
This one is definitly missing - the GPS location would place in the middle of some 1950'S?? houses on a council estate. picture not taken as people in the houses at the time of my visit. Not shown on OS maps.
2005-11-16 11:58 - TP0428 (Frognall Corner)
Third time lucky for this one. Bolt is located in the middle of a grass verge (not on the path as stated in previous report) between the path to the Frognal Corner pedestrian sub-way and the school playing field, the bolt is set into a small strip of broken up concrete running between the edge of sub-way path and the field.
2005-11-15 18:00 - TP3449 (Great Bounds)
Located in the reservior compound, access not a problem, just a hop over the fence. Pillar in reasonable condition, a bit rough around the top edge. This was not apparent untill I look at my pictures as this was bagged after dark.
2005-11-15 16:00 - TP0657 (Snodland FBM Aux 1)
Located in passing place of narrow lane, reasonable condition if a little worn.
2005-11-15 14:15 - TP7208 (Snodland)
Located at the end of farm track next to gate. Fairly good condition apart from a few marks on the the top.
2005-11-15 13:36 - TP2476 (Cox Heath)
Damaged! - More like smashed to bits. Located just off the road, looks like it was destroyed years ago, I wonder why? OS data - PILLAR Replaced by buried block 03/64 2 - 1 N TQ94 1953
2005-11-15 13:13 - TP0435 (Four Wents)
Easy to find as at the side of the road - unusual, in as much as the rivet is on the sloping face of the manhole and not flat, first i've seen like this.
2005-11-14 16:33 - TP6473 (Thurnham Court Estate)
Located about 200 meters from the car park at the top of Detling Hill. Pillar in good condition apart from a missing plug. No views at the time of my visit as almost dark - Nice sunset though.
2005-11-14 15:49 - TP4236 (Kingswood)
Easy to reach, located about 100 meters into the woods, this is one of those that you could completely miss with out GPS. Pillar in good condition.
2005-11-14 15:15 - TP3451 (Great Chart)
Nothing here - Got to GPS ground zero, nothing, can't see why this one had to go?
2005-11-14 14:14 - TP0474 (Copton)
Easy located on the pavement at the end of bridge over M2. Block in good condition
2005-11-14 12:49 - TP0446 (Kingsland Lane)
Third time lucky with this one. Ist visit no sketch, 2nd visit long grass and no trowel to dig with 3rd visit, short grass, some one has been there recently and not only turfed it for me, but it has a large yellow triangle painted on the grass!
2005-11-14 12:26 - TP0445 (The Leacon)
Located at the road side, easy to locate when armed with the OS sketch, still hinding under a brick, which like the previous visitors, I replaced.
2005-11-14 11:31 - TP0978 (Baldslow)
Located next to changing rooms of the local football pitch. Pillar is in good condition, and was being used to dry a pair of football boots at the time of my visit.
2005-11-12 14:07 - TP0427 (Gotwick Farm)
Located on the corner (Road/East Grinstead)Of the concrete surround of Telecom Manhole cover. Strange looking one this; I was looking next to the concrete for a standard Surface Block, this looks more like a long Rivet, actually in the concrete. I assume I have found the correct thing?
2005-11-11 15:23 - TP6164 (Staple Hill)
Found exact GPS location, only a few feet from Aux0 - Definitely missing, there is a hollow in the ground at this point, possibly where the trig was dug out? - Updated 31/08/2012 in view of new information - changed to converted.
2005-11-11 15:21 - TP0324 (Staple Hill Aux)
Located at the side of path - needed GPS and OS scetch to pin point - Block is in good condition apart from a little peeling paint.
2005-11-11 11:10 - TP0420 (Ham)
Located on Jetty next to Thames, Nice views. Bolt nice and shinny, when eventually found under an inch of Thames mud!
2005-11-09 12:47 - TP6345 (Thakeham)
Located at the edge of cultivated field about 250 meters from the footpath that runs across the local rec. Pillar is in good condition and the views from here are good.
2005-11-09 12:02 - TP3203 (Flitchfold Farm)
Located about 100 meters from the road, in the hedge between two cultivated fields. I had to negotiate some barbed wire and brambles to get into the field. Pillar is in good condition.
2005-11-09 11:23 - TP2379 (Coneyhurst Hill)
Bit of a climb up the road, but well worth it, great location and great views. Pillar in good condition, with matching collection box next door
2005-11-09 10:27 - TP6411 (The Nower)
Nice location - Pillar is in good condition and almost lost in the bracken.
2005-11-09 09:49 - TP2200 (Clarks Green Farm)
Completely lost under a blanket of brambles - I had to do some "gardening" to find it.
2005-11-08 16:33 - TP1764 (Bullocks Hill)
Located in the middle of a cultivated field behind some masts. Pillar is in good condition. Views to Brighton and across the south downs
2005-11-08 15:52 - TP0418 (Ferring)
Sorry to disagree with you chaps - but I found it exactly where it should be. I was armed with the OS sketch and my trusty trowel. Block has a yellow stripe painted on it.
2005-11-08 15:09 - TP0414 (Amberley)
Looks easy on the OS sketch - not so, found the spot easy enough, armed with scetch and garden trowel, all I managed to find was the old farm gate mentioned in Alan Grove's report. :-(
2005-11-08 14:50 - TP6383 (The Folly)
Nice location this; interesting Folly, long walk up from the road. Pillar is in good condition apart from a missing plug.
2005-11-08 14:00 - TP6797 (Wepham)
Walked to the exact GPS location - nothing here except a very wet field with a stream running across it!
2005-11-08 13:15 - TP6359 (The Brooks)
2005-11-08 13:08 - TP5170 (North Park)
Located on footpath next to ditch, about 200 meters from the road easy to reach. Pillar is in good condition apart from a missing plug.
2005-11-08 12:51 - TP2405 (Copyhold Farm)
2005-11-08 12:50 - TP6840 (Westfield)
Easy access as right on footpath, you can drive up to about 75 meters away. Pillar in good condition.
2005-11-08 12:22 - TP1620 (Brick Kiln Farm)
Located at edge of field, about 200 meters from the road. Pillar is in good condition.
2005-11-08 11:44 - TP0354 (Selsey Bill)
A Rivet - Easy to locate on the platform before the steps over the sea wall. You can drive almost right up to this one.
2005-11-08 11:35 - TP0355 (Selsey)
Located about 65 meters from the footpath in a cultivated field. Pillar is in good condition, apart from a few chips
2005-11-08 10:18 - TP1358 (Bignor Beacon)

2005-11-07 11:55 - TP0998 (Balmer Down)

2005-11-07 11:25 - TP1440 (Blackcap)
Great South Downs location, good views in all directions. Pillar in good condition
2005-11-02 15:32 - TP1686 (Broomhall Copse)
Located in fairly dense woodland, close to the Downs Link Bridleway. Pillar is in good condition, and has been painted at some time in the past. No views due to the density of the woods. Parked on road next to bridge over Downs Link, then followed GPS up into woods - no sign of any Private signs mentioned in Alan Grove's comments.
2005-10-30 13:19 - TP2227 (Cliffe Hill)
Parked on road to Ringmer just up from Earwig Corner (great name!) bit of a puffer up to the golf course at the top - well worth it as great views all around. Pillar is in good condition
2005-10-30 12:22 - TP3782 (High Dole)
Located just inside a reservoir fence (too high to climb) Pillar is in good condition and there are good views all around, nice quite location and only one Private Property sign to miss ;-)
2005-10-26 13:21 - TP7251 (Winchester (R))
Located at the side of the B3404, very easy to find. FBM is is good condition, the "playpen" is however looking a bit old and rusty.
2005-10-22 13:26 - TP0744 (Lyndhurst)
Located on the top of small hill/viewpoint on the New Forest, next to the local Cricket Ground. Pillar is in reasonable condition and the views over the forest are quite good.
2005-10-12 16:55 - TP7121 (Dagnam Park New)
Located at the edge of school field about 2 meters from the pavement, appears to be in good condition - as I was suited I decided not to hop the fence.
2005-10-12 16:50 - TP2716 (Dagnam Park)
nothing here, this only a few meters from the other Dagnam Park.
2005-10-12 16:20 - TP3507 (Grey Goose)
Nothing here, looks like it would of been in the central reservation of the A13.
2005-10-12 15:48 - TP2941 (Durndale)
Located on pavement at the side of urban road, pillar is damaged, and appears to of been urbanised - With Graffiti, cigerette ends and sweet wrappers in the hole left after someone has "chaved" the plug! I suppose what you would expect for this type of location - still, at least it's still there!
2005-10-11 14:08 - TP3486 (Green Street)
Located high in the hedge between country (dead end) lane and horse riding stables, top and FB visible by climbing up small bank from lane - watch out for thorns.
2005-10-11 13:01 - TP3747 (Herstmonceux)
Located in a clearing in the grounds of the old observatory, I managed to get to this one by parking on the road by the old closed car park and walking across the field then through some woods. Pillar is in good condition and as previously stated is wearing a mirror hat.
2005-10-09 15:49 - TP2145 (Chessington)
Located in a small "pen" next to the garage block of the housing estate, pillar appears to be in good condition. I wonder who actually owns this small piece of land, and why was it left? Just because it contained the Trig?
2005-10-09 14:53 - TP7281 (London)
Very busy area of London - even on Sunday, not the most interesting site, apart from the fact it's the OS HQ.
2005-10-07 13:50 - TP0765 (Rumfields Water tower)
Found the water tower no problem - the OS site suggests bolt to be on the top of the tower, think this is a non-starter, unless you work for the Water board.
2005-10-07 13:35 - TP7289 (North Foreland 2)
Large mast in garden of lighthouse with 4 receivers on the top, nice lighthouse.
2005-10-07 13:35 - TP7288 (North Foreland)
Large mast in garden of lighthouse with 4 receivers on the top, nice lighthouse.
2005-10-07 13:30 - TP0554 (Isle of Thanet)
Not here - GPS location puts you in a parking bay in front of a new retail outlet.
2005-10-07 12:05 - TP4534 (Longreach)
This looks to be located in the rear garden of a 1970's house, got to within 20 meters, will have to try again, and see if I can find someone in their front garden, to ask.
2005-10-06 14:04 - TP4287 (Knockholt Beeches)
Located about 50 meters from the foot path at the side of a field, almost completely lost in the hedge - Strange that the FB number is the same as Box Hill?
2005-10-06 13:40 - TP5218 (Old Fort)
Not here - GPS location would make it under or in the grounds of a bungalow, which must be the highest house in Kent.
2005-10-06 13:25 - TP2138 (Chelsham Court)
Located a few feet up a bridle way from the road, pillar is almost lost in the hedge, and appears to be in good condition.
2005-10-06 12:54 - TP3939 (Hilly Fields)
Yep - It's Blue! Located on what appears to be quite a nice park for this part of London. Pillar is in good condition, considering it's location, apart from a bit of graffiti, which includes some stenciled letters, even the center plug is still there!
2005-10-05 17:49 - TP3201 (Flexham Park)
Located about 250 Meters from the road in fairly dense woodland, This would difficult to find without GPS. Pillar is in good condition. There are no views due to the density of the woods
2005-10-05 08:43 - TP6003 (Skinners Green Farm)
Located at the side of lane high on a bank in a hedge, the pillar appears in good condition, due to the hight of the bank it was not possible to see the top.
2005-10-05 08:39 - TP3492 (Greenham)
Easy to located, as just over the road from the old Greenham Common Air Base, which is now a nature reserve. Interesting the old pillar, wonder what the story of it is?
2005-10-05 08:39 - TP7431 (Greenham Common)
Visited at same time as it's neighbour - not realising it was a different one - updated 14th June 2007
2005-10-05 06:08 - TP0323 (Hindhead)
Managed to get the car within about 150 meters of this, up an un-made road that runs along side the A3. Interesting location, no views at my visit as thick fog. Pillar has been modified to be a NT information point, therefore, logged as slightly damaged - Well; not as the OS intended.
2005-10-04 16:25 - TP4952 (Mount Zion)
Located in the corner of a field, a few feet from bridle way, pillar is in good condition, but is very erroded around the base, looks like the cows like to have a scatch on it. Good views to Brighton and coast.
2005-10-04 15:20 - TP6470 (Thunders Barrow)
Located on the South Downs above the main A27, Pillar is in good condition.
2005-10-04 10:42 - TP0918 (Atheralls Farm)
Located at the side of a field, just a fence hop away from the footpath. Pillar is in good condition
2005-10-02 13:17 - TP6501 (Toddington)
Located between two modern housing developments, at the side of a footpath, I think this one lucky not to have been lost in the redevelopment. Pillar is in good condition and is fairly overgrown.
2005-09-30 13:31 - TP1344 (Bestbeech Hill Resr)
Yes - Strange location, two for the price of one. A trig and a clone!(even down to the recess for the flush bracket) A quick hop over the fence, from the footpath. They are both a bit green and mossy, but other than that in good condition.
2005-09-30 13:17 - TP0434 (Mark Cross)
A rivet - located on the concrete surrounding a drain, very dificult to spot as almost the same colour as the pebbles in the concrete. Fairly busy road junction, so usual strange looks from passers by when it looks like you're taking a photo of the ground!
2005-09-30 13:07 - TP5508 (Possingworth Park)
There is nothing here, looks like it used to be either where the road is, or just to the side.
2005-09-30 12:46 - TP6209 (Stonehill Farm)
Located in the hedge about 50 meters up a farm track, pillar is in good condition, no views to speak of. Must of had some gardening carried since Alan Grove's visit, as not overgrown at all.
2005-09-29 16:46 - TP4950 (Mount Pleasant)
Located in the middle of field. at the time of my visit the crop had been harvested so no problem walking across from the bridle way that run along side. Pillar is in good condition, and has recently had a fresh coat of piant, possibly to aid the farmer when harvesting the field.
2005-09-29 16:10 - TP2968 (East Brighton Golf Course)
Located in the middle of the Golf Course, easy access from bridle path that runs along side. Pillar is in good condition.

This one is located on private land, or so the very nice man i asked told me; he enquired why I was interested, after my explaination (which seems to satisfy him) he explained how to get up to the pillar, and then went on to say that if anyone asked me what I was doing, don't tell them I told you! Pillar is located on a well kept area of grass (almost like a lawn surrounding it)and is in good condition. see images.
