Its unusual for me to give a pillar such a low score but .......... Purposely didn't bring the dog today as I didn't think he'd appreciate this one. From village car park first west then south just by the masts. Enter the compound via gate then circumnavigate the spoil heaps etc to find the trig point. H2S smell still present. Exited via the southern gate onto the lane.

Goodness Me. It is a good job trigs do not have emotions. What an awful place. Looking south from Bristol, you see Dundry on the hill, with it's impressive outlook, beautiful church and quaint village pub but then this awful, well, bomb site of a place looms over the horizon. The trig itself is farly solid and good condition but it sits on a small hill surrounded by wasteground, old damaged run down vehicles and farm machinery and general detritus. Kids were riding around on motorcycles and even the wind howled giving the place a whole miserable depressing feel. Trig bagged - never to return.

With son Jamie. 'Jamie grabbed his tin whistle, put it to his lips and like a pied piper, skipped up the track, stopping briefly to have a pee by the willow half way and within another few minutes was at the trig with a great view down over Bristol.' I will post some coconut to the first person to email me with their address and an explanation as to the connection my little story above has to the 2008 American Presidential elections.

The pillar is on raised ground near to farm buildings and a junk yard (Lorries, farm machinery and a light aircraft) and a quarry/ stone works. Views north over Bristol and the Clifton and Severn Bridges, east to Dundry church, farm buildings and communication masts, south to the Mendips; nearby the Bristol Channel can be seen to the west. Dundry church tower was a landmark for shipping in the Bristol Channel and the local stone was used for building the finer buildings of medieval Bristol.

Ealier loggers' concerns that the footpath was poorly marked, or not where it should be, have been addressed. The footpath has been officially diverted and now runs north from the entrance to Castle Farm and passes to the west of the pillar. There is not much junk on this side and the pillar is easily seen.

We parked by the church and approached the trig from the footpath, no longer marked, to the south. The site appears to be some kind of agricultural dumping ground, as noted by Mick and Shane, and there was even a light aircraft nestling among the piles of scrap metal and piles of mud and rubbish to the north. At the time, there were four tractors constantly coming out of the "farm" with huge trailers of grass and one of them appeared to want to run us down. I thought the countryside was supposed to be peaceful on a Sunday! Tarmac plug

Hit and run (not that I dared) from the south with a strange look from a passing local. Scrap is becoming an access issue and as the footpath is poorly signed it might be worth raising it with the local council. Trig itself looks safe for now on a raised knoll above the junk. Too dark for photos now.

Approached via unmarked path from south. It's a pity that the unsightly scrap heap is spreading ever closer to the trig point. Field shared with a heard of placid cows. Didnt attempt to follow the path NE through piles of junk but continued north across Dundry Down to join path towards Dundry Village.
