From minor road to NE. Trig, on large plinth, sits in middle of arable field currently full of neeps. Plinth detriorating badly and pillar likely to topple in near future but stable at present. Original top cap retained, indented lettering; FB is of the 'BSM' style; rear sight hole open. 360deg views but nothing stunning.

I spotted this one on the skyline as I headed north up the B3392 but accessed it from the lane on the north side as the footpath is no longer very helpful. The field had recently been ridged (for potatoes?) but was dry and fairly easy to walk between the ridges to the pillar. The pillar is mounted on a structure that presumably was once in a hedgeline, but the south side is badly broken up exposing the bottom of the pillar, but it still seems secure.

Great location - perfectly visible on skyline for over 1km when approaching from north on minor road from Modbury. Couldn't get closer than 150m though due to recently seeded field. I will return! Update 29/3/09 - I did return - this time a mature braccia crop was in place - I will return again !

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters, BSM style FB, middle of arable field. Baling underway when I visited Sat p.m. RoW shown on my 1992 LR202 has been diverted S of field according to current mapping. Coincidentally visited S3500 and S3400 on same day - excellent !

Parked by road on way back from Burgh Island and walked across recently ploughed field.

We followed tractor tracks up through chest high oil seed rape to reach this one. The footpath itself has been diverted to the field edge opposite the entrance to Tuffland, where we parked. The pillar's OK but the large plinth it is sat on is very badly damaged, although the farmer is still giving it quite a wide berth. I didn't notice the views as I was dazzled by the sulphurous yellow stuff. Plug with indented lettering.

Typical S Devon pillar - sat unreachable in a field. This has been one of my favourites so far tho' - the views from this one were stunning, ok the weather was just right too, but you could see for miles ...
