On Thursday 20 May Hilary, Penny, Sharon, Torunn and Beryl set off to walk approximately 5 miles from Pegsdon up to Hoo Bit and on to the top of Deacon Hill to the trig point.
While we were at the trig point Penny commented that she could recall when it was painted pink. On closer inspection we did see some pink pigment in various places showing through the worn grey paint.
We continued down the hill and across to Knocking Hoe where we had a lunch stop and proceeded back down to Pegsdon.
After the walk Penny emailed a photograph which she had taken on a ramble many years ago and sure enough the trig point was painted a dusky pink!
