Short but steep walk from Lulworth Cove to this Trig and it's views across part of Dorset's most popular coastline. I wonder why the Trig wasn't located on the very summit? Ordnance Survey website lists the computing year as 1950 and the height a/s/l as 134.678 metres (441.86 feet).

Lovely spot; apart from the car parking fee (£2.50/2 hrs), the groccles, and the wind & rain. Anyway, nice easy bag. Was it just me or did I detect a trig shaped hole on the top of the tumulus ?? (See ~bob~s comments too)

Great walk from Durdle Door to Lulworth. Sadly you cannot see the sea as the trig is in the lee of a small mound. The inquisitive cows were a bonus. Slight damage on the post and the top has gone.

Walked up from Lulworth Cove car park.Far too many people around to enjoy but noone anywhere near pillar.Strolled down to Durdle Door also.

The best of the views were obscured at this point.

A warm and sunny morning. Shame that the views to Lulworth cove and Durdle Door are obscured from the trig.

Climbed up from West Lulworth (no extortinate car park fees). Views extensive along coast also towards trigpoint Chaldon Down and former site Burngate resr. Plug missing, had been asphalt filled but mostly now removed.

Well worth a visit on a very quiet day in winter!

Great views in all directions if you ignore the caravan park, which is a bit of an eyesore. I'm surprised nobody else has commented on this, but it looked to me like this one used to be on top of the mound, but has been reseated lower down at some point, possibly to stop it blowing over in the wind? :) Evidence: a) the big lump of concrete round the base (see Frenziedfrog's photo); b) a hole about the same size on top of the mound.

Delightful evening stroll on a mild and sunny February evening. No plug, some minor chipping on side.

Alt from GPS: 132m Spider, but no plug. Walking to Durdle Door with a geography fieldtrip I was with, luckily was able to persuade them to walk right to the top!

Trigpoint found after a steep walk from West Lulworth. Pillar has good views even though some of the coast is obscured by a mound behind it. Trigpoint in generally good condition but cap is missing.

Found on a circular 9 mile walk taking in Durdle Door. Good Location

Been to find the two Durdle Door caches then plodded up the hill to the pillar. No plug and no paint. Concrete base exposed 12" all round. N-S sightholes open. Views inland [seamist and hill restricts seaward views]. In area of public access lane which takes me back to the 1970's when I used to come here every year leading 6th-form Geography fieldcourse parties - nice to see some of then around today aswell!!

This TP doesn't stand on the highest point because that is a tumulus. As a result, it is hidden to the walkers on the well-used path from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door. The parking charge others have referred to isn't bad when you consider that the same ticket can be used at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door car parks.

Top missing - tarmac plug originally there but has been pushed through. Someone has been using it as an ashtray...

Hambury Tout offers excellent views to the disappointing tourist trap that is Lulworth Cove. If you're planning to visit it, don't bother. We parked at the extortionate Durdle Door car park (£4 for 2 hours or something) and enjoyed the stunning scenery and beaches at Durdle Door.

Isoceles seemed a bit 'down' on the location. I don't think that you should be deterred by a car park fee - £4 is about 3/4 pints in a pub (depending). I do like his photo of the cow headbutting the trig though. Visit out of season and revel in the outstanding scenery. Trig is right next to a tumulus.
