Parked at the end of the road by Petit Tor and walked along the path to the fence that could be jumped over to visit the pillar. Wary of golfers, so waited until they all disappeared then jumped over the gate and ran!!! Quick pics then ran back! Thankfully saw no one!

Questioned by vigilante golfers but managed to justify our presence long enough to take a photo. No damage to the precious golf course. Right opposite an old gate. Good condition!

Accompanied by rams, we caught a bus from Torquay for a day's trigging starting from Paver Road and took the Easterfield Lane path. over gate opposite the pillar. No golfers on a foggy morning.

2 pillars less than 500m apart? Something within the hallowed walls of the OS must have stirred! From Petit Tor pillar to the S. Easy access from the FP running to the E of Torquay Golf Course and parallel with the SW Coastal Path. Handy gate to pop over. GC car park was full when I drove past but this must be further along the course as not a golfer in sight - which was fortunate as access from the gate is directly across one of the fairways. Pillar has no top cap or plug; front and rear sight holes are open. Near 360deg panorama - seascapes to E and landscapes other directions. I should imagine a fine place to play golf - if that's your bag.

Stands on the W side of a fairway joining tee and blind green which requires crossing about where golf balls land. Friendly golfers, views of Torquay

Short diversion from coast path,. Trig is on golf course and requires climbing over a metal gate to reach it, from a nearby path. We had lunch whilst waiting for the golfers to move away as there was quite a few about today

Fairly easy to locate and access. On a golf course, but not too many golfers around for some reason; also not far from the SWCP I walking.

Golf course (Torquay). Went very early so as not to get in the way of golfers. Some views towards the sea and Torquay.

I cose an appropriate day to visit - Easter Sunday! Not a golfer in sight to hopped over the fence - though will have a bruise in an embarrasing place to prove that it is not that easy! There is a bell near to the trig - no doubt for golfers to warn of incoming triggers.

Friendly golfers allowed us to photograph this pillar close-up. Great views from the top. The plug in the top is missing, but otherwise this trigpoint is in good nick.

I am atop the easterfield trig point. Only attempt to visit this trig-point with the permission of the golfers. Luckily they're a friendly bunch and will happily let you indulge.©nick

It's on a golf course, but it's near the easily-hoppable fence.

Nothing to add to the previous comments really. Good views in the dark too !

The pillar is next to (RHS of) the little tree , mid shot.
