Hopped the gate to try and get a closer look. The top of the trig is still visible, but the bank it is part of is very overgrown. Can't quite touch it.

Easy access from the east side, but couldn't see the FB, very overcast day,

Eventually found in thick hedge to NE of farm (not the hedge line of bridleway) Permission to visit given at farm provided we were quick. It's not the easiest trig to visit quickly! On tall plinth best seen from E side of hedge. N side of field gate. No shortage of nettles, brambles and other thorny vegetation to contend with.

I climbed into hedges on both sides of the track but could not catch a glimpse of the trig.

Found this one when I was placing a cache in the area. (Cornish Trigpoints No 1 GC2Z436 Rosemullion). Covered in ivy.

Found this while walking the SWCP and a complete nightmare to get to (at least the way I went). I think I was on the different side to everyone else. I would never have found this without a GPS and there was virtually no concrete visible just a mass of ivy

Fortunately the hedge is reasonably thin at this time of year, so it was a case of looking for the trunk that was thicker and squarer than the others - and lo it was a heavily disguised pillar.

vgc (apparently - ivy), metal cap, deep letters, fairly easily seen now when approaching from NE, thanks to previous visitors, just R (NW) of gate. FB facing SW, into yard. Straightforward access at dusk, although gang of overattentive bullocks made for an interesting walk-out.

Virtually impossible to find at this time of year. Finally found in Cornish hedge line. I agree it is a nightmare to locate

Visited while walking SW Coast Path. Not too bad to locate and access, despite being buried in a hedge with loads of ivy on it. OK views, but nothing special.

I don't think this is NT land, that starts below the next hedgeline east. We walked down the path towards Rosemullion Head and at the first gate I jumped into the field with the trig in and headed back up to the hedgeline. This is next to the farmyard and pretty exposed. I climbed onto the bank and manged to crawl around and check the FB no without making myself to obvious. I didn't check the plug (which was well overgrown with ivy) as this would have been obvious to anyone in the farmyard. Fair play to NR for hopping the gate to photograph the FB.

Not really inaccesable you just have to jump over two gates (and after all it is National Trust Land). Fantastic from near here looking across to Falmouth, St Mawes, St Antony Head and even up the South Coast to Plymouth breakwater

Not really possible from 1:50000 map to tell where it ought to be relative to hedges etc. Didn't conduct an intensive search.
