Location of TP is correct on 2011 1:25,000 map. I expected a trig named Squirrel - in Summer Lane, too - to have a bit more charm but this seemed a rather forlorn TP whose plug is missing. The pillar stands on a bank with no foothold, so I grabbed it and hauled myself up for a photo.

Marked on the wrong side of the road on the 50K OS Map. In the hedge immediately adjacent to the road. If the road was a bit wider this would be easy, but there is nowhere to jump out of the way of traffic coming over the crest of the hill, so be careful. Much worse weather compared to that of geodruth's visit yesterday.

Bagged trig whilst on holiday in Exmouth with my dear wife. Trig is on a bank along a lane just further down from a very interesting small church called Point in View - well worth a visit.A la Ronde NT situated at beginning of lane.

Location instructions from Saltash Ramblers spot on. Not really much more to say abot this one. Some of the local pubs now serve grilled squirrel, poor Tufty. Any takers out there.

Trigpoint is on south side of the lane, not north as shown on map. Parked in church car park a little way down the lane and walked back. Easy to find, FB faces the road, easy to read.

This was the last of the day for us. We picked it up on the way back to our digs. It is tucked up on the top of a wall at the side of a very snug lane. Maybe it is possible to get to it from across the (private!)field. The pillar is in good condition but I can't remember if all the brass is still there, I think the plug might be missing. ELV 95m
