As a coastal trig, this is probably worth a score of more than 6/10, but it was pitch dark when I visited. Which is why I trod in the little booby-trap that some ignorant dog walker had let their pet leave lying right by the trig. Thanks very much indeed.

After my exertion at Trink Hill, a simple drive-by for the final location of the day was most welcome. If you really wanted to, you could almost touch this one just by reaching through your car window. I parked a little further down the lane. The pillar is in good condition but of course, the centre plug has been taken. On top of the cliff, where the pillar is situated, it’s open moorland but the view out to sea is pleasant enough.

This is about as easy as it gets - a drive-by trig! You can of course make it a bit more of a challenge by doing this as part of the Coast Path - it's a bit of a climb up from either Cape Cornwall or Cot Valley. The views from the nearby headland are stunning.
