Parked opposite new house, then a short walk down the road, through the open gateway and over to the trigpoint. Don’t know why but I expected more from this one.

Horrible main road trek to this Trig but I could have parked at a pub down the road. Cut through very wet field opposite farm and Trig is in middle of field. Nice view of Cheddar reservoir in background. Pillar in good condition.

In the area for Piratemania 10 Mega, so called round to visit this pillar. Walked across a field, which I suspect has no public right of way. Pillar is in good condition.

Very boggy in the gateway and the rest of the field wasn't much better. No views due to low mist and rain.

I parked in the entrance to the nearby mast compound. I wouldn't normally chance this but it was a Sunday and the fence has a big hole in it and the mast looks like it is no longer in use. An easy walk up to the trig point using the gate into the field from near the farm entrance.

Parking on roadside verge NE of comms station entrance. Short walk over cropped pasture to pillar, just beyond the 'punch bowl' a fair sized natural depression in the ground partially filled with domestic/farm waste. Pillar in good condition with just a small chip from one vertical edge. Cap missing, asphalt plug; all sight holes open; BSM-style FB. Extensive 360deg views.

I parked in the gateway of the communication tower compound… naughty, but it was only for a few minutes… and walked back to the field gate. A tractor towing a muck-spreader was just approaching so I waited and asked if it would be ok to walk up to the trig point. No problem, said the very nice bloke on the tractor. What a difference from the miserable pillock at Ready Token (TP5599). The pillar is in good condition apart from the missing centre plug; the hole being plugged with tarmac/bitumen. The views are pleasant without being terrific, the early summer greenery making things look better.

Dundry Hill can be seen on the skyline with Chew Valley lake below it. The Devil's Punch Bowl is a natural subsidence a little to the northeast formed by the surface rock collapsing into a void produced by the limestone underneath dissolving . Presumambly the agricultural tip next to the pillar has similar origins.
