Visited it as part of a circular walk around this part of the moor. Wonderful spot with wonderful views. A day of sunshine and no wind, unlike other times we have visited.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

1st trig of W/E. There appears to be 2 lanes that you can access trig from. I drove up towards Poldhu, parked car, opened 1 gate and was on open moorland.Accompanied by cookoo. My brother has my hand held GPS in the Phillipines where he is constructing his own maps so I had to take the sat-nav from the car! Entering this via mobile B.Band whilst waitig for the kettle to boil.

Up through the field of cows and ponies - not sure if private or not, so just boldly set out as though I had a right to be there. Perched above small escarpment with great views - lovely landscape. I think this one had a small skull inside the spider tube which was open - visited 6 today so not sure. You find all sorts of stuff in the open ones :)

Plug is missing. On the flush bracket the horizontal bar of the 'flag' at the top is broken. Other than that, the pillar seems to be in good condition. Good views.

A shorter walk this time from the end of a narrow road which opens out with some nice parking for about 4 cars as you access the open land

Logged whilst walking "The Copper Trail" - 65 mile route around Bodmin Moor. Arrived in the mists of the moors and couldn't see jack around me let alone the trig! Central plug missing.
