Took a loner flatter approach to this parking at SY 11590 92436. Followed tracks all the way to the trigpoint. Good views.

Nothing much to add, other than thanks to Anthony V for the car park tip! Walked along to East Hill after this one, nice walk, lots of people :-( Was this really August? Felt more like October to me :-(

I work at a near by supermarket so ran this on my way home. from .83 on the road. You can drive up Core hill road and park in the small car park. Not on the map. It's then a short up hill walk. Surounding area very wet and muddy. My house can just be seen from the info board 100 or so metres from the Trig. This is my nearest trig. Nearest pubs are The Bowd or the Blue Ball. both on the A3052. Re: Widget's log entry you can avoid the hill climb on a bike by cycling up the old railway line. One of the 4 Trigs race points.

Wandered around Beacon Hill but couldn't find the pillar. Some areas of gorse had been flattened and I took some 'paths' through the thick gorse, but was unsuccessful

Views from here over the Sidmouth area and the sea are breathtaking. The trig is in the middle of a large area of gorse and I got scratched bigtime getting to it. It's in good condition with only the plug missing and been filled with concrete

Bitch of a hill to climb on a bike out of Newton Poppleford. Superb views from gorse moor. Life is great!
