Parked at Knightshayes and followed National Cycle Route 3 in a steady plod up the hill through the woods. Access is straightforward through a gate on the left, then right turn to follow the hedgeline to the top of the hill and you will find a classic Devon hedgeline trig with nice views across to Stoodleigh Beacon. This was the first of three today.

Doing well there safely defended in the hedge bank. Saw a lovely sunset shortly after on nearby Hone Hill TuMP.

Walked up from Knighthayes. Straightforward access from the gate to the SE. I think the plug is intact under the ivy.

Walked up from Knightshayes Court (National Trust) after a very quick visit. Easy to find in the middle of a proper Devon hedge! Me, Mum 219

Easy to find. Parked just east of the trig, hopped over gate and walked around the field of crops. Didn't view plug as trig is slowly turning into an ivy plant.

I approached from the track/lane to the east and found it drivable. I parked at the gate at SS 96086 16614 where I entered the field. Then followed the hedge line round (growing crops) to the pillar which is on a hedged embankment. It is possible to cross the embankment at the pillar. In good condition and protected by a good growth of ivy. I think that there is an original plug underneath but it would nee a lot of pruning to really establish that. Godd view point.

Had just enjoyed an interesting visit to Lanhydrock House. Cycled up private road and track designated as a Sustrans cycle route. Slightly roundabout route to reach pillar.

The track to the east is a cycle route which makes access easier. Trig on plinth in hedge of arable field with FB facing west. Plug with indented lettering.
