Parked on Marine drive 3. Then followed footpath first east then south towards mast. Its then along field the boundary to trig point. The tirg looks like its been moved and placed on the field edge, it's leaning all over the place.

Surf poor so the teenage members of the holiday stayed in watching "The Thin Red Line" while we set off for Woolacombe. We parked on the front and set off along the road up Challacombe hill. Found the path off to the left at the second attempt. It's higher up than you think. Then a right turn with the mast in sight. The field the pillar is in is a trespass and slowly growing grass/hay at the time. For a long time the pillar is invisible from the footpath. I know it's up there, but I just can't see it. Terence Malick would have loved it.

Good views from here. The pillar is a short hop over a field to the north of the transmitter. There is an interesting plaque on the pillar

A really nice walk up to the trig with some beautiful views. The trig is leaning slightly but apart from that in quite good condition.

Pillar is leaning. There is a large mound of silage next to it, which seems to be on slightly higher ground. Good views over Woolacombe and Lundy Island today.

Easy access & excellent views of Lundy etc. There's a plaque attached:''Dedicated to the Volunteers of the 203 DEVON British resistance Movement, known as 'AUXILLIARY UNITS'of this area,1940-1944''We presume they mean the Home Guard. The pillar is tilting slightly as its base has been eroded

The last trig of the holiday - and what a gem!! Access via an open-field [ which badly needs the silage cutters on it!] about 100 yards off a public path. It's all intact with the central plug but it is leaning slightly and there is severe erosion around the base. However, there is a metal plaque on the east face which says: " Dedicated to the Volunteers of the 203 Devon British Resistance Movement known as "Auxilliary Units" who worked in this area 1940 - 1944" Never seen anything like that at all! Thick sea mist today but this would be a super spot on a clear day! A great end to a good few days!
