Fort owned by Landmark Trust, accessed on an open day - 3 this year, although seems access isn't difficult as there are paying guests so place is open most of the time. Pillar atop a gun emplacements on W side of fort. Retains original top cap, lightly indented lettering; 'BSM' style FB; rear sight hole open, LHS plug degrading. Trees recently cut back so good views over the city. Cut benchmark at entrance to fort.

Parked car in visitor car park on Crownhill fort road where trig can be seen to N/E.Sign saying closed to public at entrance gate so like Dart More just went for it. Trig in good condition with good views. On way back bumped into a guy but he was on his mobile and said nothing.

Interesting setting in CrownHill fort as described by previous logs. Couldn't find anybody to ask at the office and was already very close to the trigpoint, so just bagged it.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. On grassed-over gun turret - managed to spot the little trig plaque. BSM style FB. 2nd visit of the day: this time the gates were open and wedding guests gathering, quite happy for me to wander in. Posh do - I suspect I was the only one there in walking boots:-) Lisa and Andy may you be very happy! Normally closed, but when open the hours are 10 til 5 apparently. Ironically there was an open day last weekend - I was down but didn't think to check.

Excellent Trig point, brilliant view, brilliant surroundings, and if you go down into the gun turret below, you will find a nice little brass plaque with a trig pillar on it!

Luke in charge
a nice little brass palque under the trig!

An interesting pillar simply because of its surroundings, in a museum! The Fort was officially closed to the public when I arrived, but the gates were open so I just went to look for someone to ask permission. I quickly found her and as soon as I explained that what I wanted to do was akin to train spotting she smiled and said "Let yourself out when you're done"!

I visited on a day when the fort should have been open, but was not. However, I was able to walk in and find the manager who apologised for having to limit opening to special events only, despite having published information otherwise. Preparation for an event was in progress and the manager gave me permission to visit the pillar. Future visitors should check www.crownhillfort.co.uk for opening times, expected to be updated in October. This is the nearest existing pillar to my childhood home. GR to 10m only.

TP2639 Walk up the grass ramp from the parade ground and head back towards the gate to spot the pillar.

Looks like an interesting spot. Must come back when it's open !

The Pillar. This is inside CH fort ... over the other side of that defensive trench.
