Trig pillars around Plymouth city look to be some of the most awkward to visit in country, but not this one. In public park, on edge of defensive position, panoramic views of Plymouth and hinterland.

I was able to walk to this Trig. We took the Tamar Ferry from Torpoint and walked up to it. This was the first time I was able to take Lucy the Trig hunting hound with me. But she wasnt very useful. This is a great Trig with good views all over Plymouth. A fitting trig to finish this holiday on.

Easy to locate and access, and for a pillar in the middle of an urban environment it was surprising very pleasant. Previously visited in May 2008 while walking the SW Coast Path.

A great place hidden amongst housing and offers good views of The Tamer River. Almost dark but appears to be built of pieces of concrete.

Working nearby, and this shows up on the satnav, and as I get closer, it can be seen. So close, and easy to get to, got to be done! Excellent views over Plymouth and the docks.

At the top of Blockhouse Park giving some nice views over the city, even if it's a damp, misty morning. A stone-built pillar - unusal for a city centre. FB is of the 'BSM' style; no top cap/plug; no sight holes.

nipped up to the trig on route to home park to see Derby surrender as normal in the cup.slighly hazy but good views, the lads waited in the pub as the morning walk to look at a roundabout a couple of miles away ( plymouth county/ua top )was just to exciting for them ( it was certainly better than the football match ).

Good views in most directions from this point, part of the (un-needed) Plymouth defensive network. The area is rather neglected - some graffiti, damaged explanatory signs, etc.

Pillar is on Mount Plesant Redoubt. It's an interesting pillar in that the casting is in a 'stone-built' moulding, not the 'normal' slab sided casting (ok, *I* found it interesting as I've not seen this before). Pillar has been painted at some point and has some (other) paint daubts on it, but that would clean up ok. Easy access and wide views out over Devonport and up the Tamar. Plymouth City have installed an interpretation board giving historical information about the site.

Pillar ... showing the stone-built moulding & some of the 'fort'.
