Drove to Dizzard farm and asked permission to park and walk to trigpoint. Readily given and informed about electric fence (no advice given to avoid it, just you'll sort something). Trig on coastal path and leaning slightly? Great views along the coast but a bit misty still. With Coineanach Hutch #29 pillar of the trip.

Nice pillar in a field on the SW Coast path. No views to see from it because of bushes but walk a bit and the views open up.

Leaning slightly at an angle, not sure if this has been clipped by a farm vehicle or subsidence from the cliff is the cause.

Leaning. Nice walk from the farm at Dizzard, joining up with the SW coastal path. Passed through a few friendly cow fields. Sun came out as we reached the pillar. 164m. Best views from the path. Cheated by walking through single field back to car. Very steep,narrow drive back to Widemouth Bay.

Walking the Coastal Path and came across this trig. A sunny day but breezy offered good views across to Widemouth Bay and beyond.

In my book, MOVED means at a different site from the original one and TOPPLED means flat on the ground. This trig is neither of these. It is leaning and can no longer perform the function for which it was designed. It is therefore DAMAGED !!! The paths in this area shown on the map are in dispute and some alternate permissive paths are being used. I approached along the coast path from Cancleave where there is also a small carparking area.

Chose the lazy access from junction of farm tracks ,where there is ample parking.One open field to cross but out of sight nearly all the time. Pillar on SWCP,leaning but stable.

Found while walking the South West Coastal Path. Either this is leaning at a funny angle or the wind was even stronger than I thought when I took the photo.

We took the path to the south of Dizzard Farm which was a mistake as it takes you down and then up again through muddy fields. Far easier to walk down the concrete track towards Dizzard and head straight up the field where the track branches to East Dizzard, which is the way we came back. The trig is pretty much intact but leaning a bit as the photos show. Excellent sea views. Plug missing.

I have marked this trig point as slightly damaged as it has started to tilt to one side, prorbably about to follow the adjacent bushes down the cliff. There is not much else to commend this pillar.

Margin note on a map: with the Old Man and godson's sister on a walk from Crackington Haven. Lovely sunny afternoon. Logging this many years later I'm surprised to see the trig survives as it had a significant lean on it!
