|06.55 Easter Sunday. Glorious sunny quiet time to trespass on MOD land to this TuMP summit and trig beyond to the NE.||vegibagger||21/04/2019|
|Groundhog Day as Im back here again a week later for another try with more research and determination, and uncannily only a day after the official Groundhog date, and ,as the little critter forecast in the film,snow has indeed fallen, with Wiltshire blanketed under pristine snow. Unavoidable to not leave a long trail in the snow which was like towing a huge arrow saying I am here. Beautiful dawn. -6 degrees. Army landrover moving not far away - even at dawn.At the foot of the hill is the Porton Down South Defence Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Centre - they run military training and scenarios ( on this hill perhaps?) in these grim areas of threat.
The 2018 novichock poisoning was close to home on their doorstep in Sailsbury. WW1 trench mortars were developed and fired here.||Chris Pearson||03/02/2019|

|Parked at Figsbury Ring. Had to scale a high barbed wire fence and ignore the fact that it is an MOD DANGER AREA and that a red flag was flying. Couldn't hear any firing and didn't see anyone so all OK. Easy and fairly pleasant walk to a patch of scrub.||Herbert Anchovy||17/09/2015|
