Parked at the summit and wandered down the road until the OS Map phone app said I was right on it. Looked left and Hey Presto! There it was nestled happily in the hedge. Lovely distant views of Dartmoor from here and the ridge roads leading to it.

Not too buried in the hedge!

Parked 70m SW on minor road. Pillar sits on field side of a field boundary hedgerow with handy gap in HR thus it can be accessed from roadside. One top corner badly chipped away, most likely flailer damage. FB faces NW (into the field); original centre cap is retained, deeply indented lettering; sight holes not noted.

Back in 2010 I was unable to locate pillar. Today saw it from car.

Roadside, but well hidden in the hedge. The best view is from just a little bit higher up.

Summit is near road: didn't find the trig itself. Looking at iain's pics I can't have tried too hard.
