Good access within the Berry Head Fort area. Several interesting nearby features: lighthouse, coastguard stn, the fort, couple of benchmarks, toposcope, ROC nuclear fallout monitoring bunker, cafe - it's all here, views are quite good too. Pillar has a distinct lilac hue to it which is not really apparent from my photographs. Original cap has been lost, asphalt plug replacement. There is a 'BSM'-style FB. RHD side sight hole is open. Views from the pillar to NE only due to presence of a small copse.

Easy stroll from car park. Beware the narrow lane to it, clipped my wing mirror. Great coastal views,though not from the purple pillar itself. Toposcope 190ft asl. Interesting place. The BBC were filming an episode of The Coroner at the time.

We tackled this as a family, doing the nearby multi-cache at the same time. It should have been a health walk but it started with pasties and ended with a cream tea! Stumbled over the trig on the way to the lighthouse.

Easily found pillar almost on the end of Berry Head (Now a 'National Nature Reserve' looked after by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust). Pillar looks ok, but the spider is incomplete (Does this count as 'slightly damaged' ?). Massive wide ranging views in all directions, as far as Portland Bill in Dorset (on the odd occasion !). The site is home to two Napoleonic forts & loads of uncommon wildlife too.

The Pillar, looking S'ish, down the channel...
