All intact. Richard, the owner of the storage yard in the old quarry is more than happy to have trig visitors. Has a very nice dog and cat both of whom just want their ears scratching! Pillar has done well to survive the quarrying.

This is what happens when you are on a tight schedule to cram 13 trigs into one day. You misremember and convince yourself that this one was destroyed, so you pull into the quarry place, observe the mess it's all made, and drive on to the next one. So, I'm not having the gall to claim this as visited, but it's more that I cocked up and didn't make any attempt rather than that I failed to find it. I doubt if I'll be back though so this will have to do to turn that little blue dot into a red one on the Interactive Map!

The snow has finally cleared up, so I took the opportunity to go for a run. Path up to this one is very overgrown.

Parked in village and walked down Polkanuggo lane then took the path at the side of a house as the lane turns to the left. Walked up through bracken. Trig sat on rocks. Nice views. Avoid trying from the quarry side.

Looked for access nearest to road, but many private signs. Took bridleway/house access from A39 then good gate and path by house (not sign posted) but shown on OS to pillar. map shows path as finishing here!

Geocaching in the area. The footpath seems to reach a dead-end at this trig!

Found whilst failing to find a nearby geocache. Nice views from the top of the mound which the trig sits on.

First trig for a while! Easy acess from SW by public footpath from Polkanuggo Lane (park at end and walk back) - careful, quarry behind that hedge to the left!Good views to North, East and West, masked to the South

The end of a good afternoon's work. The view from this Trig is worth the walk up and is rewarding. It would be interesting to work out how to get out of the flooded quarry nearby if you fell in. The sides are sheer. Good bird spotting site too.

Good views down to coast and reservoir

Had to jump over a gate and barbed wire fence for this one not sure if os map is incorrect or has the farmer built a hedge! Trig on rocky outcrop presumably quarry waste from adjoining hole. Wonderful views "up county". Adjoining quarry is site of aborted geothermal project drilling project.

I accessed this from the yellow road leading off the A394 at Longdown. Climb over the gate with barbed wire on top just past the quarry entrance (where you can park). Initially there's some rubbish dumped but this soon leads up to the trig which is on a grassy knoll. A bit trespassy. I saw a large dog fox just as I approached the trig who ran off sharpish towards the quarry. Plug with heavily indented lettring.

Slightly damaged 8th Oct 2004  11:57  by kevjtrig

Very suprised that nobody has bagged this beauty. Pillar damaged at the base, but has been constructed on the top of a pile of presumably quarry waste which is eroding away, and may have moved. The path shown to the top is a bit academic - it's not often used I'd speculate. Splendid views across this part of Cornwall with distant points being the St Austell Clay hills, Bodmin Moor, and the Carns to the north.

3/4 feet from the edge of an old quarry which was without doubt crumbling, Private
