well hidden in hedge. FB is on N side but easiest access is from rd to south. Geocache. 5 paces from watertank gate with layby on opposite side of road.

Visited today while undertaking a geocaching trail. Unable to record the flush bracket number as didn't fancy scrambling up a very steep bank (pillar sits on top on large base). Undergrowth also dense currently, making even spotting the trig difficult. Excellent views to be had from gateway just along from trig.

Found whilst geocaching. The bracket faces away from the road so I wasn't sure if this was a trig or not until I scrambled up the hedge

Roadside trig. Pillar is on top of a larger concrete block. If you didn't know it was here, you wouldn't find it - not in Summer anyway.

the trig (honest!) The pillar is inside the red outline.

Out in the area as self-appointed driver with friends on a drive-by geocaching trail but once someone said the cache hint was "trig",, I was out of the car to add trigpointing to the day's agenda! Needed a bit of exercise so I was up the bank beside the trig - lovely views from up there! Trig is damaged on all 4 corners presumably by hedgetrimming, but otherwise is ok. As all will be able to see from my photos, one does have to be acrobatic to assess the bracket number!

Like others I hadn't known this pillar was here. the pillar is damaged both sides due to hedge trimming. it is sitting on large concrete base about 4' high. the flush bracket is facing away from the road.

Like previous trig hunters we found the trig point due to geocaching. I know Trigs can in unusual places but this one in a hedge!! The damage is apparent from the hedge cutting.

Easy roadside location, but still difficult to access properly due to its elevated position on large concrete plinth on hedgerow bank. Although recently cut, beech/holly hedge severely encroaching pillar, along with ubiquitous ivy and bramble. No secateurs but persevered with gardening gloves and spade to clear some vegetation and access flush bracket, which faces into field (hedgerow too thick to access from field side). Pillar has been seriously hacked away at, probably by hedgecutting equipment; all top edges and sides very badly damaged, should be re-classified to 'Damaged' or at least 'Slightly..'. Cap missing, asphalt plug. Extensive views E, N & NW; other directions obscured by high hedgerow on opposite side road.

Parked in the embayment by the water tanks which is handy. The pillar is still very overgrown with holly and ivy. There is a replacement asphalt plug. Built on a concrete slab embedded in the hedge. Very awkward to get the FB number. S sighthole open but others obscured by vegetation. Another good pub which I found afterwards on such a glorious day is the Merry Harriers on the B road south of Cullompton.

On top of bank, on plinth, but almost overgrown by the hedge, and the pallet is still there, obscuring the FB, so I didn't get the number - sorry. Widget saw it, but she wouldn't tell me. Nice, typical E Devon views. Nearest pub is the Five Bells (less than a mile down the road to the E), which looks lovely, but a thoroughly recommended gastronomic experience can be had at the Red Lion in Broadclyst, 5km to the SW.

Covered in ivy, a pallet led against the pillar in a hedge, made it difficult to read the flush bracket number.
