Seen from blue gate at top of drive, inside private garden. Nobody home but decided not to trespass onto the garden.

This pillar is in a private garden. Fortunately the owner was outside cutting his hedge and allowed me to see the pillar, which he has made into a garden feature. The garden has stunning views over the area extending from the sea to Haytor. Thanks for your generous hospitality.

'Old' resr house is up for sale,so we drove up to it. The owners were pleased to show us the trig and tell us the history of what he has done there. Great views over Torquay.

All intact but site holes blocked by brick wall base to the seating built around it. Its also under a pergola. One for the "odd things to use a pillar for" list.

Parked on minor road with short walk to 'The Old Reservoir' a bungalow sited at the old reservoir. Trig has been made a very pleasing feature in the garden. No-one around so wandered across for a closer view. Pillar generally good with some hair fractures appearing; new brickwork has obscured all sight holes and encroaches onto lower part of FB; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering. Good views.

This is now a holiday let. At 615 for 3 nights you can have your own trig. There are going to be some confused holiday makers in the near future. Luckily the people in there were happy to let us visit but didn't know what a trigpoint was and couldn't understand why were doing it. Have a look at the link below for the Old Reservoir Kingskerswell http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rentals/torquay/223099

Some superficial cracking, metal cap deep letters. Plinth built up In brick and tile to just below FB level. Owner said he has finally got planning permission for 2nd storey hence the ongoing work. Lower storey is the original resr of course.

Owner was in the garden, so I called over and said I had an unusual request. Before I could explain what it was, he said "its over there"! Gave him a talk on the history of trig points etc until his eyes started to glaze over. Very pleasant guy - willing to talk about what he's done with the trig. He assured me that he went to great lengths not to disturb the trig during all of his construction work etc and that its still in its original location. In all the excitement I forgot to take a GPS reading. A good way to cop my 100th trig since starting to record last September.

No longer a reservoir! Its now occupied by a bungalow with a very low profile above the ground. The pillar is now a "shrine" in the garden with a brick built plinth with tiling on top. Its covered with a pergola and a cherub sits on the pillar. Able to examine after asking at the house. Different! Whether pillar has been moved at all I don't know.

I viewed this from the track up to the newly built house. The flush bracket is visible over the top of the house. Nobody appeared to be around so I couldn't get any closer. The trig plinth now appears to be protected with bricks - neat job.

This is in some fellow's garden and he's now building a roof garden so the trig is becoming less visible. :-(

As already said: it's in someone's garden. Where he's built his house he's dug very close to the pillar but it seems to be OK.

There it is!

N50 29.709 W3 34.088 - (as near as I could get). This one is at the top of a little lane, and is located on what appears to be a building plot and although no one was around, I didn't go any closer. I think this wil have to be classed as "unreachable". The base of the pillar is exposed, but it looked ok (as far as you can tell).

The pillar, you can just make out the exposed foundations.©hollowing
