Parked in Swyre. FP all the way to the hp field. No need to walk along road.Andrew Pearson28/09/2023
Awkward, unpleasant bag from gate to E. Last hill before going to holiday let in West Bay. It looks to me as this could be claimed as a drive-over bag- trig in hedge, road cut into natural grond etc etcpwheeler03/06/2023

Field with a crop of barley - luckily there were tractor tracks from the gate all the way to the summit - visit possible w/o any damage to standing crop. Trig point now fully enclosed in vegetation and barely visibleM3WDD14/07/2018
