A strange trig indeed. Not an easy one to spot as it has been obscured by the sea wall. Appears to have sunk into the sand, so not a huge amount visible. Flush bracket presumably on one of the sides that's obscured by a wall. Otherwise, nice views of the estuary.

No clear footpath to the top. Managed to scramble up the side through the trees to the east. Bit of a view from the top, but mainly obscured by trees. Lots of quarry workings nearby meant it was quite a noisy spot.

Nice panoramic views from this one. Top of the pillar has a chunk missing, and NT plaque on the front has air rifle round damage. Not too far from the road and parking spaces.

Trig in the side of a hedge, but can be easily accessed from the road. Nearby ROC post has unfortunately been burnt out. All that's left is a bed frame, the door and some graffiti.

Cycled up here before heading down to the lake. A nice trig, with good views of the lake.

Nice panoramic views on a peninsula, plus a nearby fort. Whats not to like. This trig is also part of a geocaching puzzle, so 2 reasons to visit here.

Used to come running up on Sampford Moor a lot, but I have only recently started trigpointing, so haven't logged this one until today. Nice views, but they are even better from the top of the beacon.

Trig on edge of a field. High hedges meant there are minimal views. Very overlooked from house and no way to trig without trespassing. Approached the trig from a field gate to the east. Not the easiest to get to.

Ascended on the tourist track via Little Man, and then descended via Carlside. Very windy up here, but very good visibility. Nice views but quite busy.

I've never seen a trig pillar made out of slate before! A bit of cloud, but otherwise great panoramic views.

Hopped the gate to try and get a closer look. The top of the trig is still visible, but the bank it is part of is very overgrown. Can't quite touch it.

A very nice trig, although the pillar itself is a little damaged, with signs of graffiti on it. Lovely panoramic views from here, plus there is a logan stone.

Could see the trig from the road, but couldn't find a clear path to the summit. Hopped a fence to try and get to the top, but came face to face with a very large bull! Retreated back to the road.

Found the nearby cache, which was the main reason I came to this location. Thanks to the cache info page, I was able to find the only footpath leading to the summit, although the route is not very direct.

Just getting into trigpointing, so decided to pay a visit to some of my local ones. Field was empty, so was able to hop the fence.

Set a course for this one prior to going out for a run today. The field was empty, so quickly cut across it to the trig.
