A very nice trig, although the pillar itself is a little damaged, with signs of graffiti on it. Lovely panoramic views from here, plus there is a logan stone.

Wish I had seen the last report before driving up to this one. By the time we got to the last bit it was too late to turn around. Worth it when we got there. Amazing views and a lovely easy walk. Trig is perched on a pile of huge rocks.

Onwards from Roselath to a vg lunch at the Crown in Lanlivery, thence back up the Saints' Way to our car and this trig. According to some locals, we were lucky to get our car up the road as it gets overgrown by vegetation in high summer - you have been warned! Stunning panoramic views - sun shining on us but black as night over Brown Willy, very atmospheric. Plastic cap, damage to one corner, E s/hole open, otherwise good condition and painted very white!

The pillar stands on top of a rocky tor on a hill to the south of Bodmin. The hill was accessed directly from the adjacent car park. The pillar is painted white and has a large chunk missing from its side. It has FB S7862 and its spider is plugged with a blank disc. The trig has an impressive view. It looks over rolling green hills toward the coast in the south. The spoil tips from the clay pits can be seen in the southwest and hill top wind farms are in the northwest. The high moors of Bodmin are to the northeast. The hill has been designated a scheduled monument for its hillfort, hut circles and field system. The Logan stone is close to the trig; the information board on the path from the car park helps with its identification.

The road up to the car park is very narrow and in places flooded across half of the road,but the views from the trig point are excellent.

Autumn break in Cornwall for the week and Helman Tor was reachable from our holiday cottage nearby. Weather was a bit dull and rainy on finding it, but well worth it.

Trig on top of a nice rocky tor, would have a good view on a clear day, but it was dull and drizzly. worth driving up the narrow road to a carpark though, and short uphill. Pillar slightly damaged, sides and top, plus no plug. But the rock scrambling adds interest

Took narrow country lanes to car park and walked up to TP in thick mist. TP painted white, plug filled, and some old damage to top. As I was about to leave the mist started to burn off, slowly revealing extensive views, with some fantastic cloud effects. Magic.
