Pleasant final hill of my trip to Kent. Squeezed car into gateway oposite entrance up to reservoir some 400 yards SSE of Markbeech pub. Path up through clover field and great views. Drove back home to Manchester arriving 1900 (730 miles round trip)GordonAdshead31/08/2019
Parked at village hall. Hole in hedge 225m S of the pub, but a good field gate another 100m on. HP seemed near enough at the spot height, close to stock fencing, in an arable field recently sown.jonglew06/11/2018

Parked at gate to SSE. Up through field to roundabout and trig. Then off to the summit - had a good walk around - summit could be anywhere. Pity its not the trig.destaylor20/01/2016
Up field passing top cottage other side of hedge. The Kentish horse flag of Kent (prancing white horse on red background) is neatly painted on each side of the bright white trig. The story associated with this flag is that sometime after the Norman invasion William was ambushed in the forest outside Strood astride the London Road (the modern A2). Wiliam's escort were overpowered and he found himself at the mercy of a group of outlawed Saxon nobles. In exchange for his freedom they were pardoned and as the men of Kent had overpowered the conqueror the county was given the right to use its old emblem and the new motto 'Invicta', 'Unconquered'. The pub is Markbech is called the Kentish Horse.Chris Pearson18/05/2015
Located in a small clump of trees next to a fenced off reservoir, pillar is in very good condition, a few metres from the summit. Nice views over surrounding farmlandgriefmiester13/12/2005
