TP2453 - Cottingtons Hill

Couldn't get a ticket for Saints' last game of the season so what else to do but go for a walk with a trig hunt involved? I'd missed this sad pillar on my last ramble up here in November 2009, but this time forewarned by fellow trigpointers I found it with little trouble. Several scratches later I emerged from the thorny bushes having noted the pillar's poor state. Strolling up Cottingtons Hill I heard my first cuckoo of the year.

Old Man wanted to drive the GPS to our TV transmitter to test intervisibility - but hey, if it also includes a good walk on a crisp, clear day with great views and two trigs I'm not complaining. This the first, and caused me to perfect my backwards, bent double, arms over head approach to getting through blackthorn! Still roughly upright with FB, and a good model with which to explain the function of sight holes (thanks, Ian!)

Great views from just a few yards away, where I spent some time watching red kites riding the thermals. Pillar in a sorry condition, as others have already noted, and was quite difficult to access dur to growth around it.
TP2453 - S1681 Cottingtons Hill, October 2009 TP2453 - S1681 Cottingtons Hill, October 2009. Pillar & flush bracket.

Parking at Stubbington Down. Pleasant walk with expansive views. Pillar moved to small copse area between resevoir and field. Damaged base.

Started looking in field as shown on OS map but no sign. Decided to look in wood and after walking past it once saw it on way back. In a very sorry state.

I Parked on the B3051 and followed the wayfairer way to the foot path junction then up towards the mast, when you reach the point where the path enters the wood. go to the right and follow the path path around the woods, after a while the fence doglegs to the right, about 20 meters beyond , the pillar is resting just the other side of the barbed wire, not at all visible this time of year, so was a hands and knees job to get under the barbed wire - as commented very sad looking, no spider and an attempt has been made on the flush bracket. no views, you can hardly get far enough away to take pictures!!

Walked up from the carpark on the B3051 initially round the field boundary just south of the fence with no sighting.Back via the track through the woods. At the gate with the footpath skirting it my 'trigger's nose' took me up a faint path to the south then to the right.Lots of bending over to get under low branches but there it was.Condition as described by others. Comparing the 1:25000 online and aerial photo shows that all the small fields to the south have been reduced to one which probably explains why the trig was moved -- to make way for large machines. An extra point for my first toppled or moved.

In W edge of copse, 10m S of track. Easiest to head into copse, then S, then W thru blackthorn. Did a bit of pruning to ease the way in. Spider gone, FB still there.

Another pillar in blackthorn hedge by barbed wire fence. Getting difficult to reach. As others have said moved from orignal position.

A short distance south of the path. Not marked on my copy of LR174 but appears to still be on 1:25K mapping.

Black smudge from the Hemel oil fire is very visible from this top. Trig position unchanged and a choice of safe off road parking nearby makes for a pleasant walk.

As reported by others, the trig is in a bad state. Clearly the best place for it was where it was, but having uprooted it, it is a pity it wasn't re-erected by the side of the FP. Note a new barbed wire fence is erected, and the trig is on the copse side of the fence. So go over the stile into the copse near the aerial, and work your way along the inside of the fence. Quite a few brambles. No longer easy.

As stated before this TP is in a sorry state and moved from its correct location. Views are fairly good from the SW, but obscured otherwise.

This has been moved, is leaning and the spider is missing. Easy access.

The trig pillar is now at SU 525 567. adjacent to the path but on the edge of the field. The tri-brac and plug are missing but the FB is still there - although somebody has had a good go at removing it!

Our second attempt at a first Trigpoint. Found it as a result of a geocache. It looks like the land owner has moved it out of his way to better enable ploughing and planting etc.

In middle of wheat field (stubble) - field adjacent to radio mast.
