Break in heavy rain offered up a fine and sunny evening, and the opportunity to walk to this trig from our holiday cottage. Spectacular views both up and down the coast, and of Bude, Lundy, and at least 20 wind turbines all along the horizon. All s/holes open, plastic cap, small chip on NW edge, otherwise vgc.

This has got to be one of the best rigs I've been to for views, if not, "the best". Added to this spectacular trig is the fact it is so close to the edge of the cliff. Amazing view all around. Elevation 68 meters.

Bagged trig with my dear wife whilst on few days holiday to celebrate our anniversary. Approached from Bude via Compass Beacon known locally as The Pepperpot. Usually easy to find, but sea mist made it more challenging!

Great location, with some fantastic views out to sea (when the weather is clear enough for it anyway). The location is also a view point. The plug has been replaced with a plastic one, so someone must be taking care of this one!

Visted while on honeymoon with Claire (Mrs Saunders!). Amazing views up on cliff tops over Bude. Lots of sheep poo! After leaving the Trig it started to thunder and rain. We got back to our cottage to find our sheets soaking wet on the line and no electricity due to a power cut.
