This was the last of 13 trigs I visited today and I thought I might be frustrated, as I had been with a couple of earlier ones due to lambs, undergrowth or my own stupidity. I ignored the unpleasant warning signs on the gate and drove right up to the locked gate. Thinking the trig was inside the fenced mast compound, I squeezed in and sauntered casually up the track. Finding it outside and pushed for time I took a quick snap and ran off happy that I'd got away with it!

That's close enough!

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.

I managed to loose an expensive pair of glasses on this hill. If anyone finds them, please get in touch

Stunning views. Trespassed via the fence compound above pillar because I was too lazy to battle the gorse.

No public access to the pillar but bagging it was not difficult. Located adjacent to a comms compound, pillar in good condition. Extensive views but not spectacular. We were on a tour of the West Country's Marilyns that neede ticking off the list, this was the first of the week whilst staying at the Coverack YHA.

up the track past the farm and straight on to the comms mast, gate unlocked and followed track up to wire link fence which is still cut near the trig, workmen just smiled and said hello.

Cycled up track passing farms to security gate to comms mast and reservoirs. Can bypass locked gate on right in grass and climb left at end of fence back onto access track. Follow along and right. The problem of getting over the wire link fence has been solved by a previous visitor cutting through it directly opposite the pillar!

Parked at the right angle bend in the road to the West. Follow the track then when you leave it it is brambles.

vgc, broken brown resin plug, on granite on gorsy brambly summit. Seems least controversial to drive up to resr gate, then walk along resr track.

pull in on the corner then a rough walk up over rough gorse and bramble on access land I suspect the same as mickandshane.

A very difficult one to reach. Footpaths were poorly marked, and much of the terrain was covered in ferns and boulders, a dangerous combination. Eventually took the road used to access the reserviour and radio station and found a way to the pillar from this. Great views all round and made to effort worth it.

Jamie asleep in car with mum and dad unfortunately and they thought it was cruel to wake him but this results in Carnmenelis being the only English Marilyn south west of Liverpool to West london that he's missed. A long way to go to mop up, not that he's bothered...only I am !! Its also got FB number that makes it his 32nd birthday trig. He has a few in Cornwall.

Been looking out of my bedroom window for 20 years @ this trig point and didn't realise it was there (I do live 4.6 miles away)But can now spot it with a decent set of binos. Love the views cause I know the area so well hence the score. Parked @ SW690365 and followed a fairly well defined path

Parked at Carnmellis after the bad bend and walked up a faint path past the disused quarry. A karge mast and reservoir share the summit with the trig. Tarmac plug pushed through.

A strange location with an atmosphere of isolation if you stand facing away from the transmitter tower!

Approached from the nearby road, access to the column was made difficult by the dense brambles surrounding the summit.

A very pleasant walk, albeit through some pretty dense undergrowth led to this pillar. If you ignore the massive aerial adjacent to it (without it, the score would be an 8 or 9), the views are stunning, stretching from coast to coast.

Notorious marilyn. Thorney spikey thing in a place where the gomls chase you off the footpaths. Failed once, sneaked past the idiots only to fall foul of the thorns. A later approach from the east did the trick. Rather industrial.

Approach from East. All approaches from SW are rebuffed by residents.
