Easy one and timed well as we were out of the car took snaps and were back again in a couple of minutes!. Trig high on bank just on inside of farm drive, nobody about! Trig good, Spider, F.Bracket but no cap in place.

Although its cap is missing it sits on a well kept bank lined by hydrangea adjacent to a driveway. Easiest pillar of the day probably.

Big plinth, a bit like many Devon hedgerows, with nice views inland and of the coast. Bagged it on way back to campsite (Dewslake Farm - pretty good) from Caldey and Tenby.

Easy to find and lovely views across the bay. The first visit to this trig on the previous day was very badly timed. An angry farmer was standing in the adjacent gateway effing and blinding at his stupid sheep and dogs. We thought it best not to ask if we could take a photo of the trig point and quietly sneaked away to come back another day. Haha!

After a day of rain we thought we would go and find this pillar, the location is from Tenby go through the village of penally turn right up the ridgeway and it is a private drive on your left called oxlands. It is slightly up on the bank just as you enter the driveway. Ivy covering the flush brackets , loverly hydrangeas surrounding it. Great location.

Having visited Caldy Island trig pillar in the afternoon I walked up here through Penally for something to do in the evening. I quickly climbed up next to the pillar to admire the view and then carried on to the next trig, Norchard Beacon.

We passed this trig several times on our holiday. On the day Dad went to the trig the long grass was wet and as I was wearing trainers instead of wellies, got wet feet and trousers!

We were passing this trig so stopped to take a look. Having checked the roadside hedges it was spotted just down the driveway, high up on the left. Looks like the plaque is on the hedge side (or its missing) as I could not see it

Almost a roadside pillar being just inside a driveway entrance. For access it is necessary to climb the rather short steep banking on which the pillar stands. Pillar itself is in good condition except that the plug is missing. Nice location.
