Pah! I knew exactly where this was but simply couldn't get to it without taking waaaay too much time for its worth. I parked where the eastern path meets the road at 740247, but there was n o access to the field. The western marked path involves a tricky climb over a stile in a tunnel of foliage and gives no access to the field in question. I managed to scramble to the top of the bank but couldn't see the damn thing so went and drowned my sorrows with a pint in St Keverne!

Plays a good game of 'hide and seek', We spent a lot of time probing the thick hedges until we found it in the NW coner of the field on opposite side of hedge to the footpath. Access along little used foot path to gate then back up E side of hedge or easier from field gate opposite Sworne Farm.

South side of the lane at the bottom of the bank on the field side. Walked down the nearby green lane to near a house, then sharp right and through a gate and back up the field. Trig in far corner of field covered by hedge and ivy.

Hadn't really read the previous notes. I eventually found it by climbing the bank by the entrance to the FP and looked down on it. S side of road. S side of hedge. NOT in field with the FP. NOT on top of hedge.

A quick find once I took the path off the road & walked up the field, back towards the road. TM

Another flippin' murderous trig to find. It's time the OS mapped them accurately. Thank goodness for the advice that it was in another field. Couldn't be bothered to photo the damned thing. Crap views too.

Well hidden behind a hedge this pillar is both difficult to locate and access. Visited while walking the SW Coast Path. There is nothing special about the views.

2nd visit to this one as it wasn't ontop of the HEDGE and had to return home and read the notes below to find it. Average views but fairly close to Goonhilly satelite station

This one breaks the general rule for Cornwall and is not on top of the dyke! It isn't in the field with the footpath either but in the one next to it. You can either climb over the dyke - quite high with a thorn hedge on top - or use the gate a short way along the footpath (which I discovered after climbing the dyke)! Plug with heavily indented lettering.
