Very very overgrown... spotted the plinth by belly crawling along the hedge line through wet grass. Was unwilling to risk the nettles etc and crawl into the hedge in shorts and tee shirt so didnít get the FB number

Not easy to get to the flush bracket on this one and a very high plinth and lots of spikey vegetation but as usual Coineanach Hutch was up on the top before I could say S3965. With Coineanach Hutch. #15 pillar of the trip.

One of the biggest plinths I've seen but a classic for Devon. Parked at the track junction to the W, then walked up road past lone tree and entered via field gate. Views to the North very "rolling Devon countryside".

A wonderful example of a Devon hedge trig. Good scrambling up to reach it but it's always worth a fight. FB hard to uncover. Tribrach overgrown with ivy. Lovely views.

Totally buried in thick hedge, all I say about the condition is the base area looks OK

When we arrived at the area around where the trig point is shown on the OS map is located we were surprised to see there was agreat deal of work being carried out as solar panels are being fitted to a number of fields as the area was designated a building site we could not gain access to the area.

In theory a nice roadside trig pillar. In practice ist is only possible to touch base camp as it stands high up in a hedge on top of a wall. What it is like on top only the birds know.

Well buried in hedge on bank top and covered in vegetation. Would need a ladder and gardening equipment to access.

Sits high on its plinth on top of hedge. Plinth has been made to provide footholds to enable access up to trig. Slight old damage to one corner at top probably caused by hedge trimming machinery.
