I was staying nearby and wanted to visit at least one trig point during my short time in Wales. This one was chosen for me because the rest of my party (including a 4 year old who made it to the summit) wanted to come here. The views were good, the wind was howling and the sun was out. Perfect!

I saw this pillar from the road. I am not into trespassing so I took some photos and went on my way

FB Number: S4990   Condition: Good   Score: 6/10

On the outskirts of Exmouth and easy to get to given it is on the side of a road, albeit a narrow and busy one. The vegetation means the views from the trig are nothing special but if you continue up the hill to the commons then there are superb views over the Exe Estuary.

Why is it called Squirrel?

The second trig point visited during my day of walking in the area. I prefer the views from here than at Cramber Tor and it is a lot easier to get to than many trigs

Found on a hike around the area. The surrounding ground is surprisingly wet given location of the trig on top of a hill. I had to do a hop skip jump to reach the pillar because it was surrounded by a lot of water.

Find the gap in the hedge and begin your adventure. When the path appears to end keep going for another 20m along the narrow skinny path with drops on either side. I take my hat off to the surveyors who carried all the materials up here to make this cache

Use the grid ref on here and it takes you right to the trig. This could be a good spot but the pillar is concealed within a lot of blackthorn

Found on a walk around Ditsworthy Warren. Geocaching brought me here and even though it was surrounded by cattle I had to shoo them away so I could bag this trig at the same time.

Set within a grounds of an old Fortress this is a slightly unusual spot for a trig point. Perhaps it has been moved at some point in history. The surrounding area is well worth exploring and on the day I visited I had a lovely walk up from Brixham

I logged the wrong trig at first, correcting that now. Great views from up here, but that is to be expected given this is the highest point of Yorkshire (or so I am led to believe)

I am impressed that this site has automatically changed the date and time to when I visited. How does it know? Visited on a sunny but breezy evening after work and once at the top of the hill it was so windy I could barely stand up. Good views up here

Great views up here. The pillar is on top of a hedge on a field boundary alongside a bridleway. The plug is missing and has been replaced with concrete. Bring a carrier bag because it seems as though this area is popular with those who park up and throw their takeaway wrappers out the window

Easy to access as this one is adjacent to a public bridleway. There is a (now cleared) larch plantation to one side and mixed woodland on the other sides so not much of a view despite being up high relative to the surrounding landscape.
