Short cycle up a hilly road to get to this first trig of the day. Plenty of dogs walking with their owner on the way up the grassy hillock to get to it. Easy to find and not in bad condition,even if it looked like it was painted purple not that long ago.

I parked to the south and made my way to the trig point across the sports field then up the slope to the trig point. I explained to the lady dog walker sat on the bench what I was doing so as not to spook her when I started taking photos. Instead she probably left thinking there is a strange man up there taking photos of concrete blocks, purple ones at that.

Returning from a walk round Leigh Woods, and both over and under the Clifton Suspension Bridge - superb engineering. Pillar is now pink with patches of the earlier Frisian coming through. Nice sunset; views E are reasonable but the potentially better ones W over the Severn Estuary obscured by trees. Centre and all s/holes open, but otherwise structurally sound.

A bovine TP of the Fresian variety, interesting. Easily accessed from footpath at the west end of Dial Hill Road. Take the north path and turn right after a short distance climbing uphill, and there it is. Nice views looking south and west, a bright sunny little spot with a convenient bench nearby.

This is a reasonably tidy pillar considering its location near a busy town. There is no obvious damage. However, it has been painted in "Daisy" style cow markings, which are beginning to fade. Perhaps a re-paint is due. The views are fine though not 360 degrees due to some tree occlusion. It was a bit hazy but with nearby benches, a lovely place to stop for a while.

We parked on the road next to the cricket pitch and walked up to the Trigpoint. Flush bracket numbers 2 & 7 have the bottoms missing, a ‘casting’ error by the looks, found the same at our previous trig at Middle Hope as well. Very foggy and cold still, could not enjoy the views. Looked like a very nice area though, with some nice walks. We will have to re-visit in the summer. Its New Years Eve. This is our last Trig of 2008. From Chris & Phil, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone.

The pillar is sited next to a public bench in a small area of open ground popular with the dog walkers of Clevedon, it has FB S//3275 but lacks a cap or plug. Several paths lead to the summit of this small hill, I approached by means of the path from the junction of Dial Hill Road and Kings Road. To the south the pillar looks over the suburbs of the town to the Mendip Hills, to the east are the hills that flank the Gordano Valley and to the north is the Mouth of the Severn with the Welsh coast just visible in the haze. The Zig Zag path that descends from Dial Hill Road to the town affords good views of the town and its sea front.
