View from the viewing point
A small car park and embankment provide an excellent spot for viewing vehicles of the Royal Armoured Corps as they pass between the heart of Bovington Camp and the training grounds to the north.

It is about a quarter of a mile south of Clouds Hill (home of T.E. Lawrence) and features many information boards. In the corner is a tree planted in memory of Lawrence and it is on a three mile Lawrence trail, the largest information board is related to that trail and describes the accident which killed him which happened close to this spot.

The smoke from the training grounds was probably part of a training exercise and it was very intense, but short-lived.
