Trig point, Hengistbury

Trig point, Hengistbury
Trig points, or triangulation pillars, were in pre-GPS days the basis of the Ordnance Survey's programme of mapping Britain. This BBC page describes their purpose and history (and has some impressive photos).

Here are details of the one in my picture, at Hengistbury Head, near Christchurch, in Dorset. It overlooks Poole Bay.
