Herstmonceux - trig point

Herstmonceux - flush bracket

Back to list of trig points in East Sussex


The third Herstmonceux trig point is just south of the main telescope at Herstmonceux (once the site of the Royal Observatory), in the middle of a small field surrounded by woodland. It can be accessed from the 1066 Country Walk by following an unmarked, but fairly distinct, path running southwards from the right of way, passing just to the west of the telescope. (my copy of the OS 1:25 000 lead me to expect a track - which it definitely isn't).
