Drive by en route back from Dartmoor and Bellever. Judging by other logs, I went the long way round through the compound and over a bramble covered bank and barbed wire fence! But found a trig in vgc with good views to the south and west. Interesting, as Peregrinus has noted for Fursdon to the south, this one also has its cap held in place by slotted screws cf Allen screws. Must be a local specialism.

Easily accessed pillar from the road next to the two radio towers and the reservoir. The large radio tower with all its dishes has been a place I have worked on many times but never decided to visit the pillar till on holiday round the area.

We parked at the coss roads on the yellow road due north of the pillar. Walked south east down the lane towards Higher Cliston and entered the field with the trig in via a gate just south of the east - west hedgeline. The hedge shields you from the nearby farm buildings. The pillar is just outside the compound fence which now contains a newly built covered reservoir. Good views. Plug with indented lettering.

It's in fields behind the relay station at Stanborough. There is a green lane along side, but this takes you away from the pillar. Permission only here too.

The relay station... ... behind which, the pillar lives.
