Eyed this sublime curve of a hill from a rainstormed Lynton earlier. Quite a trig extravaganza with a lot more doable nearby. Trig 1 of 3 on this gorgeous walk around Foreland Point watching the clouds heave off the South Wales hills and the islands and ships of the Bristol Channel, a new favourite place.

Easy parking off the minor road to the WNW that becomes private as it descends to the Lynmouth Foreland Lighthouse which is well worth a visit. Then only a fence to cross to bag the TUMP and trig.

Detoured from an excellent geocaching trail slightly uphill to this trig point as it was "too close" to ignore despite my tired legs. Trig on other side of wire fence and silage bags, but nearby gate and muddy access easily negotiated to trig. Good farming views all around.

Parked in the NT car park to the W and followed the ROW to the fence which goes straight up the hill. Then through the gate and to the pillar. Fine views from here including the Brecon Beacons.

Parked in NT carpark just to east of trig. Walked up to find freshly ploughed field. Very fresh. In fact, the farmer had just ploughed around the trig. I waved and pointed to the trig and he seemed quite happy for me to go bag it. 2 mins later and more ploughed field to hop across back to edge of field.

Unconventional approach from the Coast Path to the north. Eventually navigated our way there.

Reasonable views. As with Dart More, approached from coastpath to North (not recommended when another path is much more convenient than climbing up a steep wooded slope).

I parked by the National Trust signs on a track to the west of the T/P and walked straight up the hill, through the gate and on the the pillar. Very easy access with only a few sheep and ponies with new foals for company. You can see the rolling landscape for miles all round. The pillar is complete and in good condition.

Talked with a NT man in a van. They are going to cut down all the gorse beside the road because the ponies hide behind the gorse and then step out into the road just as a vehicle comes along.

Visited on a circular walk from Lynmouth via the East Lyn valley, Watersmeet, Brendon, Dogsworthy Cottage, Kipscombe, Countisbury and Arnold's Linhay and back to Lynmouth. Great walk on a lovely, sunny, cloudless day.

Walked to pillar from Butter Hill, in part along A37. Some good views but experience spoilt by rain.
