Roadside atop a high embanked field boundary. Adjacent stone stile gives good access up onto top of the bank. Pillar has some severe damage to one top edge, most likely inflicted by a flailer; original centre cap gone, composite plug replacement; RHS sight hole open. Extensive views, sea and landscapes.

Loved this trig which, thanks to the tree-felling activities going on at Tregowris, involved a much longer drive to reach it, detouring around some very dark, narrow, tunnel-like lanes. The view from the top made up for the extra miles though, overlooking Falmouth Bay on a beautiful afternoon. One of the better roadside trigs you'll find!

Parked roadside and scrambled up bank, stinging our legs on the nettles as we went!

Confidence in the OS restored. You can't miss this one. Wife driving, detailed navigation along some of the narrowest Cornish lanes I can remember. Excellent views down to the coast.

Can\'t miss this fella
Bit of a climb but no problem
