The stone built pillar stands on a gorse covered headland on the Cornish Coast to the northwest of Camborne. The headland is criss-crossed by footpaths and was reached from the passive station car park at Hudder Down. The pillar stands on a concrete base and it lacks a cap or plug. A National Trust plaque and FB S7935 are fixed on its side. Dramatic cliffs can be seen stretching away to St Agnes and beyond to the northeast. Godrevy Island and its lighthouse are to the north. To the southwest lies the sweep of St Ives Bay. Farmland can be seen inland heading in the direction of Carn Brea. The site is within the Godrevy Head to St Agnes SSSI, the Godrevy to Portreath Heritage Coast and the Godrevy to Portreath area of the Cornwall AONB.

There is a cafe / restaurant in the godrevy headland carpark that serves breakfasts (before 12am) and breakfast sandwiches ( :-) assiting onward travel no-end, particularly when the beach has been consumed by sea and return is across the dunes

This is the sort of location that has to have a 10/10 rating, especially on the sort of day I picked to visit it. Walked from the car park where TP0327 is located. Great views of St Ives bay from Hayle round to St Ives itself. And of course the lighthouse and the North Cornwall Coast. The pillar itself is made from stone blocks, and has a National Trust Plaque attached. It is in good condition apart from a missing plug.

Easy access from the parking spot to the East. There are great views of the coast, and the trig is made of local stone and has a National Trust plaque - my kind of trig! Plug missing.
