Suggest you park at the national trust car park if driving to it. we parked in gateway of open field and walked over to the pillar. as we were leaving a jeep with an irate farmers wife blocked our exit and wanted to know why we were driving around the field! obviously we hadn't and apologised and as she let us go, started taking photos saying she needed proof. she then closed the gate. there is still enough room to park in front of the gate but bear in mind that it is a dead end lane. eventful but not the worst visit to a trig....Sandringham will take some beating!

Also spotted by friendly land owner - he assured me that no one knows the whereabouts of this well hidden trig and he likes it that way. He did allow me to clear the ivy but not to improve access into hedge - fair enough.

A look under the ivy reveals considerable damage to the top of the pillar. Found on a round trip at Mouthstone Point.

An easy find. Was proving to my B&B owner that the trig near him wasn't an OS one (Environment Agency perhaps) so took him to a real one. Damaged by hedge cutter.

BSM-type. Plastic cap. Pruned some biggish branches to improve access, farmer stopped as he was passing by on his quad bike for a chat

Mounted on 1.5m high concrete plinth set into hedgerow on NE side of lane. Well protected by Hawthorn and Nettles but possible to squirm ones way in from the lane side and stand scratched and stinging triumphant beside the trig point. Badly damaged top, farmland views.

By heck! I spent 20 minutes walking up and down prodding and poking the hedgerows to no avail (old school; map only, no GPS) and was just about to give up when the local farmer walked up the lane and showed me where it was. Completely buried in dense hedgerow on top of large stone - which I had found and farmer said was an old gate post. Could just reach in and clear FB but that was all. Top totally inaccessible. Lovely evening - beautiful sunset (Photo to follow)

On concrete plinth in hedge. Easiest access from road but timed it wrong as farmer passed as I was stood on plinth.

Logged this while walking the South West Coast Path as we were coveniently staying at the nearby farm. The trig is completely obscured by the hedge so it was impossible to confirm the condition or get a decent photo.

For a Trig on the road this one is hard to find. The hedges have completly overgrown it.

Easy bag next to gateway. Bagged on a run from Battisborough Cross and back. Bagged Pool trig on the way as well. Grey day, not many views on a 10 mile run along banked lanes

just about managed to get into the hedge to see the trig - foliage very dense. Plate is almost covered in ivy but managed to peel it back enough to read.

Buried in hedge, as are most pillars in Devon it sometimes seems, so not easy to locate or access. And to be honest it hardly seemed worth the effort, once you do find it. Visited while on holiday walking the SW Coast Path.

Park in the National Trust car park 200 yards to the East. The Pillar is in a hedge, just to the West of a field gate, another field gate is situated opposite. By making a hole in the hedge could just get in to read the flush bracket. The pillar is stood on a concreate plinth, and the pillar and plinth are overgrown with ivy. The hedge makes it almost impossible to stand up on the plinth next to the Trig. If you fancy some nice cliff walks after logging this Trig, follow the path from the NT car park.

top damaged, presumably by hedge trimmer; brown resin plug. BSM style FB. On NE hedgebank: farmer stopped as I was borrowing his gateway, and pointed out the plinth, almost opposite gateway. Bit of pruning needed to get on plinth and liberate the top from ivy. Visited in between Crownhill Fort visits. (Also visited Staddon Fort with the usual result)

This pillar is on a farm access lane that is part of a circular walk starting from the nearby car park. The walk is well worth it for the great coast views as there isn't one from the pillar. I didn't climb the big block this pillar sits upon so no condition was noted.

TP0338 The OS plate hides under the ivy.
S3393 Fortunately, the FB faces the lane.

At the side of the road on a large plinth. The FB is road side as is the GPS plaque. Plug replaced with a plastic insert.

Other than being a bit overgrown, this one looks ok. Good coastal walking hereabouts too.

Short walk from the adjacent car park, quite difficult to find as hidden in a hedge and hadn't expected the high plinth. En route to Saltram, very narrow lanes, later found myself in serious trouble from the Old Man for navigating his very smart BMW into too narrow a lane for it!
