Easy to locate, but access, like so many Cornwall pillars, requires a drop of mountain climbing up 6ft or so of banked hedge. Views are OK once you get up there.

Straightforward access from the road below. I parked in the cul-de-sac to the W. Blank cap.

The pillar stands on top of a roadside hedge bank on a minor road to the west of Looe. I parked in the adjacent gateway and scrambled up the bank to view the trig. The pillar has FB S5738 and its spider is plugged by a blank disc. From the top of the bank the nearby village of Pelynt and the more distant green Alps above St Austell could be seen in the west. Rolling countryside to the north continues to Bury Down with cloud covered moors in the far distance. Rolling green hills are to the south with the sea visible on part of the horizon.

You could cheat and drive to this one and park by the mast. I didn't. Parked at the church. For those who tick off Benchmarks there is one on the tower of the church. It's an easy walk from here. It decided to rain enroute perhaps I should have driven after all!

Just turn around A little cheat here. if you can find this thingy turn around and look in the hedge that is now in frount of you!

On top of grassy bank (easy parking in adjacent gateway), with obvious 'path' up to it. Plastic disc for plug, moss and primroses at base. Grey murky morning - but larks singing and glorious later.

My heart sank at the first view of this pillar. Why are so many Cornish trigpoints on the tops of high banks? However, a previous vistor has kindly cut some footholds into the bank, so I managed to make it to the top without incident. (Manage to slip on the way down, but by then it was misssion accomplished!) Good views from the pillar.

Couldn't understand what Mikeandshane ment by "quite a climb up to the pillar". But you'll see if you make it here.

We parked at the entrance to the radio mast. Quite a climb up to the pillar. Plug replaced with metal insert.

Plain pillar on top of grassy (with primroses) roadside bank. Two-month old Hannah's first TP but slept through the excitement.
