A late afternoon bag whilst on the trigpointers weekend in Oakhampton. Up from the car park to the south for a simple bag, spurred on by a very nice 99 ice cram cone from the van in the car park.

From 90deg bend in road to N, 750m direct to here, then on a round of 3 more tors. Pillar has no centre cap or plug; all sight holes open; FB is of the 'BSM' style. Extensive panorama of tors and lowlands.

Slightly misty today which meant the fab views were a tad obscured. Still one of my favourite trigs!

A bit gloomy as the fog disperses!

The last of a day of short yomps bagging 4 trigs around Princetown, and the best, with an easy bimble up the hill from the nearest car park, on a simply superb day for fantastic all-round views. We lunched at the top, chatted to the ponies, remembered to get the binos out (!) and were inspired to visit Brentor Church having seen it wrapped in scaffolding from the summit. Wonderful day out!

Carefully selected as my 500th pillar log, and what a great day to be up here, cloudless blue skies. Great all round views, a mark lost for the large party of geography students cluttering up the tor doing field work, but forgave them as a) they were being taught to take a compass bearing, and b) I guess I was one of them once! All s/holes, and centre, open, otherwise very good condition, with nice sparkly granite chips in the concrete.

Doing a Christmas letterbox walk nearby so couldnt resist the few extra feet uphill to visit this trig which I have visited many times over the last years, but needed a photo as have only started trigpointing! Wonderful views of Dartmoor on one side and of Devon farming, enjoyable even in January! Trigpoint in good condition.
