Crossed estuary from Rock to Padstow on ferry and walked road to Harlyn (fast traffic, scary) and up onto Trevose Head to pillar next to relay station, many hairline cracks in all surfaces. Stunning coastal scenery, particularly Bull Rock, which, with a heavy sea running bore a striking resembalence to the sea stack that Dumbledore and Harry apparate onto before entering the sea cave in search of Slytherins locket in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Returned to Padstow on coast path, beautiful seascape and beaches.

Drove almost right to it but does cost £3.50 to go past the farm. Worth it though. Even on a dull day the views were very good. Nice lighthouse too. Trig is hidden behind a mast at the top of the hill. Very popular Boobys Bay nearby. Great name.

Nice trig, fantastic place, great views (do not presume there will be Pay & Display machines at the carpark near the trig, there aren't, get your ticket on the way up from the holiday park where you see the warning sign 'Have you paid & Displayed' otherwise you risk a hefty fine or clamping. Believe me, I know !!!).

You know you are on to a winner (view wise) when the pillar is located adjacent to the Coastwatch Station. And I can confirm this. Stunning views up and down the Coast, and similar inland. It is probably worth the £2 toll to see this one - alternatively, as I did, cycle there - brilliant day
