Approached from footpath to the North.....signs says slippery and steep ! Bloody health and safety nonsense i thought.....but seriously it is setep and slippery and i am not joking ! If you want an easy option take opposite end of footpath from the south by farm , but if you fancy a mudslide back down its quite fun ! Must be one of the steepest marked footpaths have ever been on away from the mountains ! Pillar good with three deer nearby as a bonus.

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.

This must be the steepest footpath in Hampshire (perhaps the south of England)taken to reach the pillar. There is even a warning sign to say that the footpath is steep and slippery - it wasn't too bad ascending,grabbing branches & trees,but coming down was very tricky. It didn't help that I was wearing wellies. Ended up sliding part way down on my backside in mud,glorious mud! The Monsoon season continues:rain,rain,rain,rain....then more rain!

I parked to the west near Wick Hill Cottages and then just used the mapped public footpath to the pillar. I say 'mapped' because there is nothing on the ground just the start of a cereal crop. But, with the judicious use of tractor tracks I reached the pillar which was visible from some distance away. It is in good condition and still retains an original metal indented lettered plug. Just a nice rural location.

I also wouldn't recommend the steep footpath; very slippery.

We parked in a suitable spot and noticed a sign for a footpath which we attempted to follow. Cap still fited. Quite good views, pity the photo has got lost.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. 30m into arable field. No sign of mapped f/p, but convenient tramlines to trig.

Pillar in good condition. Metal plug. Approached up steep bank very slippery and dangerous, would not recommend this route. Footpaths very indistinct in this area.

Approach on indistinct PROW from SW. Parking whrere the road makes a final left sweep up to the farm.

This is set on a substantial concrete plinth in the middle of a field of what must have been peas, judging from the remnants of the crop. In good condition and fine views to Selborne Hill. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering

Do not try to approach this trig from the east - the ROW is the black run of footpaths, a real scramble up it. Circular walk up the Hangar's Way from Selborne and generally round back to the SW. Trig in middle of field (uncultivated on our visit) and in good condition. First few flakes of snow fell as we visited.

Dont try to approach on the footpath up the steep bank to the east, as it is completely overgrown. Plug with indented lettering.
