Caught morning train to Bristol and cycled out via signed cycle routes (on and off road) to Winscombe. Left bike at Loxton and walked up bridleway, then fields. Easy find. Even on a grey day there were wide views.

From Loxton vilage. On vegetated tumulus, superb views out over the Bristol Channel to the lights of S Wales beyond. A friendly farmer spotted our lights and came to see what we were up to - thought we might be shooting!

Not sure how previous bagger managed to access this without a trespass. There are no public rights of way marked on the map and, from the West Mendip way, copious signage and barbed wire warning the public away. Didn't make any difference, just ignored them - perhaps we should lobby for a law that makes accessing all trig points a public right. Good views across the M5 to Crook Peak and Wavering Down (where we had just walked from). Pillar is in good condition.

Bleadon Hill. Walked in via briddleway to NNW, then take the right path when it splits and a farm track takes you directly to the trig point. excellent views + no need for any trespass.

parked in the small car park to the north west,used the path to the west on way in and no problems till you get to the trig when you are the wrong side of a barbed wire fence,not sure why I did not just go back over and return the same way but used the path to the east on return to the car and to reach the path had to climb two gates.

Relatively easy to find from the West Mendip Way, however not so easy to get to. Farmer has invested in an abundance of barbed wire fencing and signage making it crystal clear you are on private property. Short of someone standing guard with a shotgun it is obvious the public are not welcome. No one about today except for two goats and a horse which were not interested in the slightest with me. Took my chance and got the bag. Sun was out after a rainy day, good views but very misty. On a clear day I think the vista would be gorgeous. Trig looking good except for cracks starting to develop in the top third.

The pillar is sited next to a tumulus close to the edge of a grass field. It has an asphalt plug and FB S//3248. I parked at Bleadon Hill and approached mostly by means of the West Mendip Way; the trees and hedges of my route were full of bird song. The hill top offers wide views. It looks down to Bleadon Level to Bridgwater Bay and the Bristol Channel and the Somerset and Welsh coast. The Mendips continue to the east from Crook Peak to Pen Hill and to the west to Brean Down and Steep Holm. To the south of the Mendip scarp Glastonbury Tor, the Levels, Brent Knoll and the Polden Hills can be seen. To the north several of the lower ridges of North Somerset can be seen and in the distance, beyond the Severn Estuary the outline of some Welsh Hills are on the horizon.

Good hazy views on a lovely February day,field signed as private but the bigger problem was lively horses and cattle,had to ask better half to take hound back to path .Pillar in good shape.

Parked at the end of a lane on the slopes of Shiplate laite. Followed the waymarks round 3 side of a square to find the trig on the wrong side of a fence. Good views to Crook peak and out to Brean Down.

followed the west mendip way from the carpark on the roman road from bleadon and then switched to permissive paths which went right to the wrong side of the pillar with a fence in between.

The plug is in fact a concrete blob. This is the first one to really make the chest burn as I went for the direct approach, straight up. Great views from the top.
