Nice prominent spot atop a classic West country tor. The pillar retains an original centre cap, lightly indented lettering; LHS and RHS sight holes open. Extensive panoramic views.

Have visited and passed by many many times over the years with letterboxing and geocaching, as well as when completing the Perambulation of the Ancient Boundary of Dartmoor in 2010. Passed by again today on route to more geocaches on a day with very blustery winds but excellent visibility in all directions.

Pillar on granite outcrop adjacent to communications station, masts and other paraphenalia. Original plug with slightly-indented letters. Two sight holes open, others closed. No paint. Flush bracket has 'raised S'. Lovely all-round views including nice one of Princetown prison. Easy access via trackway.
