Damn. Another Tump in a different spot. This becomes time consuming.

Accessed from track to south which goes alongside enclosed solar farm. Trig on plinth in field boundary, with flush bracket facing north. On descent we met a farmer who reminded us this was private land.

Nice view up the Yealm Estuary - lots of pheasants around and about. Conveniently situated to bag on a short diversion from a run along the Erme-Plym Link footpath with Erme Harrier

Coming off road to the South, made use of Track which runs on the left hand side of the hedge. The overgrown grasses and the tall hedge were occupied by a great number of pheasants, including black pheasants (which were new to me!). Good views up the river Yealm but unfortunately in the other direction Langage spoils views of the moor. The trig was in reasonably good condition but had a great deal of scratches on the north side.

I parked in the gateway at the end of the cul de sac and walked down to Higher Hareston to try and ask permission to visit the trig but there was no-one in - it's a cracking old manor house though! Back at the car and with nobody around I simply walked through 2 open gates (no 'private land' signs) and up the hill for 300m to the trig. It's well disguised as a bush and there are reasonable views. Nearest pub is clearly in Brixton to the SW but I didn't check it out.

This one was off a bit. The .MPS file's waypoint doesn't seem to quite match the OS map (nor the topography either...). but you can't reach this one either way - it's the private land thing...
