Drive by up a lane. Park in gateway and walk 30m up to top of slight rise in road. Pillar in hedgerow, plinth at head height. FB faces lane. Views possible, if standing on the plinth, to Dartmoor

Made the small detour necessary to visit this trig point which commands excellent views from the top of the bank, especially on a day such as today with sunshine! Very conveniently the flush bracket faced the lane. although this made taking a photograph without showing it a little more difficult! Looked in good condition although I didn't climb up the bank to assess the top.

Visible from the road but I parked in nearest gateway and went through the gate into the field to see the other side. Views unspectacular but I imagine they're a lot better from trigtop height!

Now easy to find as it stands proud of adjacent hedge by about one foot due to recent visit by hedge trimmer. Unfortunately, the driver of said hedge trimmer was unaware of the trig points' existence, and has removed a large chunk from the west corner. Two large pieces found in undergrowth placed back in position

An easy roadside trig to bag but involves miles of single file country lane driving on either side. Got following a visit to Castle Drogo. The farmer spotted me taking photos and was intrigued. He wanted to know how high his farm stood! Said somebody had written to him asking to adopt the trig!

DOH! Walked past this twice before I remembered to look for the holly bush. Fortunate (?) that the FB faces the road or this would be a bugger to complete properly. Couldnt climb to check the plug - no purchase in the wall - and farmer was watching me from where I parked in his gate a few yards away. He must be used to it by now though 'cos he said nothing to me.

A hedge dweller on a narrow lane, fortunately with the FB facing out. Couldn't climb up to get the plug. No views, but visited this neolithic monument in a lane just round the corner - Spinster Rocks

This pillar just sits on a hedge, by the side of the road. It looked a little worn, but nothing serious. No particually interesting views, but it's near Spinsters Rock, which is worth a look.
