Last day of holiday so a tour of the far west. Started here - stumped up the £3 parking charge, and briefly passed through a very tacky visitor attraction (??!) full of senior citizens on coach tours (on a totally foggy day in March?!). Trig is easy find, stone built, offset spider, metal cap with raised letters (some worn away), S s/hole open. Shame there were absolutely no views but a good trig to bag, nonetheless.

Having flown back from the IOS to Land's End Airport I thought that I would pop to Land's End having not been there before. I can see why "meandmymum" described it as tacky, I had heard it was and they are not wrong. It would be much nicer left as a natural site. I didn't upload a picture as there are a lot already. Incidentally it is "only" a fiver to park now.

The pillar stands just below the wall on the edge of the beer patio in front of the conservatory of the Longships Bar of the Landís End Hotel. It is a stubby stone built pillar showing more cement than stone. The spider is offset and is plugged by a metal cap with narrow raised lettering. It has FB S8142. The view is mainly out to sea to the west. The Longships Lighthouse is a mile and a half off shore. Wolf Rock Lighthouse and the Isles of Scilly could be seen in the distance. The rugged coast can be seen as far as Cape Cornwall in the north. The nearby cliffs are spectacular and several seals were seen in the surf near the off shore rocks. The theme park is very commercial but the grand children did enjoy the Skull Rock 4D show and were very excited by the visit and winching demonstration by an air-sea rescue helicopter. Landís End is within the West Penwith sector of the Cornwall AONB and the First and Last Cafť is a Grade II listed building.

Had planned to bag three more trigs in the St Ives Area but due the heavy rain and bad planing i:e no waterproofs and wet through decided to visit this easy trig. Bit of a rip off £3 just to park car or is it my bad mood due to been in wet clothes? Trig easy to find with good view all round trig in good condition.Long drive home to Barnsley to look forward to.

Late on a not very nice day so not too many people around, and the pillar is not at the main view points. A rather dumpy-looking pillar constructed of stones and cement, with too much of the latter, questionably worth the £3 to park to view it.

Parked in Sennen and walked the South Coast path to get here. The weather was a bit overcast and windy, visibility was just enough to make out the Scily Isles on the horizon. Now we have the Lands End trigpoint, will have to make an effort to get the John O Groats (Duncansby Head) trigpoint aswell.

This was the final T/P of the third day of my expedition into the south west. Iíd sat in the car for a few minutes but it had been raining steadily for the last couple of hours and didnít look like stopping any time soon so I braved the weather and headed around to the rear of the hotel. What those folk looking at me through the window of the Longships Bar though of the idiot taking pictures of a lump of rock in that weather I can only imagine. The pillar is built of local stone instead of cast concrete and has a full compliment of metalwork. All very nice, but why did they put the spider so far off centre? The view was just what youíd expect... sea to the west, hotel to the east and not a lot worth mentioning in any other direction. Possibly it would be more inspiring on a warm, sunny afternoon. The sight of those drinking in the warm was too much.... I checked into the hotel for the night and joined them.

We had been here before to look around but did not get the trig, so this time H ran in to the attraction to get it. Lots of people around. Admired the views out to Longships

We only really bagged this one becuase we were there.Lands End theme park is not one of my fav places to spend the day.We parked there and took the coast path to Sennen and back. Pillar looks fine but always seemed to have someones child on it, including at times one or both of mine!

Forget the car park, do the circular walk from Sennen Quay to Nanjizal and back via Lands End. Their were plenty of seals to see en route and rumours of Basking Sharks, though we saw none. Beautiful day.

Refused to pay the car park fee (tell them you're staying in the hotel!!). Hate commerciliation here but just keep your back to it and enjoy the views. The Isles of Scilly can be seen on a fine day.

Spider is unusally not in middle; caused by stone cladding not centred.

Cornwall. Walked round the headland with my younger daughter, it is far better to approach here on foot round the coast path than with the hordes by car.
