For anyone reading this before the watershed suffice to say that crawling through rhododendrons to get to one of the possible high points is not something I wish to repeat in a hurry. The current tree/ rhoddy high point (s) rising above the flooded pit may go as expansion work was applied for last year to get at more Ball Clay. This is used for fine ceramics and, I read,is ‘recognised as a mineral of national importance in the UK, of high export value and comparatively rare occurrence, not only in Britain but also in the world.’ Carted off a couple of dollops of the stuff stuck to my boots. Main quarry gate padlocked shut on a Sunday morning, with automatic pumping into a sludge lagoon accounting for the noise on approach.Chris Pearson10/03/2019
Circular walk from Wareham having sailed from Lymington the previous day. Access from dirty bridleway around scrap yard to NE. Not a lot of Trigon Hill left, highest natural point is topped by pines at N end of large quarry now being used for land fill. Large flat topped heap of flints / stones close by is higher. (Landfill opening times Mon to Fri 07:30 to 16:30, Sat 07:30 to 11:30)RichardM05/03/2016
From ESE, forest car park. Unnatural HP is large pile of 'live' gravel near N end of quarry, several metres higher than anything else. All quiet there but sporadic landfill activity. Sat am not best time to be here.RHW27/02/2016
Landfill site to south, HP currently in sand quarry. Seems like the top of the hill is now a large hole. Wandered around the place as no operations on a Sunday and covered several high points but feel this one needs surveying and possibly re-classifying. Didn't see any security, but then we walked in from the SE, parking in one of the Wareham Forest parking areas at Cold Harbour so avoiding the main quarry entrances where any security hut might be located.jonglew13/12/2015
Did all possible high points around the sand quarry/landfill site. No operation on Sundays but security in hut.Adrian19/07/2015
