A pleasant little haven on the outskirts of exeter with commanding views of all parts of the city. If it ever snows enough in Exeter, bring your sledge here! Widget had great fun chasing rabbits and burrowing!

Pillar looks ok, and as a bonus for South Devon there is even access to it via a footpath ! Fairly interesting place too, as it offers a pretty wide view over Exeter and down the Exe.
