I tried to get a glimpse of the pillar from a location others have used by looking over the propane storage tanks. Despite holding my camera aloft I could not get the pillar in view as there seems to be a new wall obstructing from that direction. I will have to visit again and try door knocking.

#9 'trig' of the trip. #4 pillar of the trip Parked at caravan park reception and asked for permission. Escorted by owner of the static caravan to the north of the trigpoint. A lovely man. He explained the trigpoint was in the bosses garden and had been removed and put back when the sand mound was shortened and stabilised. He also mentioned Nicolas Crane with his brolly from coast had visited. His wife also mentioned that they often see 'baggers' at night sneaking around at the back of their caravan....best ask for permission here!

I was fortunate enough to arrive at Trig House just as the owner pulled up in his car and he kindly showed b around to the gate at the side of the property and up the little hill to the well maintained garden containing the trig point. That was a different experience.

Knocked at Trig Point house to be directed around the rear of the house to the trig which sits on a neat little mound giving surprisingly good views over the local area. Can be accessed from the static van at rear of the house, but this approached worked well today. Pillar is in good condition retaining the metal top cap, lightly indented lettering; BSM-style FB; RHD side sight hole open. 360deg panorama - Bristol Channel, Brent Knoll, Mendips, Quantocks, etc. My final Somerset pillar.

Located in the back garden of a static caravan. Can be seen rising above the caravan itself but the only access is via a gate to the garden labelled "Private Keep Out". We knocked on the window but got no answer indicating that the caravan owner was not around.

2nd of 3 today and the 1st of 2 'out of the way' trigs bagged ... anyone who's been to brean will know what I mean ... seriously, why would you want to go there apart from bagging it's two trigs?? ... anyway, parked up by the sundowner café and walked back to coast road, and knocked at trig point cottage to ask permission ... spoke to a very amenable gentleman who directed me around the end of his house and up to the trig on top of a dune between the back of his house and the holiday chalets / caravans beyond ... views over said holiday chalets / caravans in all directions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLF7D3KGdH0

I was enlightened to this by a friend of mine, a trig point, just a couple of miles from where I was born and grew up. As I parked up, the owner of the property happened to pass so I struck up conversation and he was kind enough to allow me passage into his garden to visit the trig. It is situated on a small hill within his garden. Fine views abounded in all directions from Brean Down, Brent Knoll and across Berrow Beach to the Quantock Hills. Right. Serious stuff. The owner of the property is a nice chap but I got the feeling that a polite telephone call to the adjacent caravan site that he owns (Beachside Caravan Park) to book a visit might be advisable.

A local TP I wasn't aware of until registering with this site. It is situated in the back garden of a property named 'funnily enough' Trig Point. The owners of this property also own the holiday caravan park behind called 'Beachside Caravan Park. I enquired politely at the caravan park reception about gaining access to the TP and they were very accommodating, so consequently another TP bagged. Apparently it is not unusual for triggers to ask for access and indeed among them is one Neil Oliver presenter of the BBC series Coast, who was researching for said series.

Just inside a caravan park, on a small hill and surrounded by brambles. Just past the entrance barrier turn right, you can see the trig instantly but walk through the caravans and you will come to a road and metal gate. I managed to get up to the trig next to the metal gate. Dont wear shorts, the brambles will get you.

The pillar stands on the top of a stabilised dune inside a caravan park in the south of the coastal village of Brean. Some of the caravans were occupied and there were men at work around the site. The trig appears to be in the private garden of one of the caravans; there was nobody in. I settled for a view of the pillar from the exit road of the site; 20 metres away. All that can be seen are the surrounding caravans and houses. The nearby beach has views north to Brean Down; across the Bristol Channel to Flat Holm, Steep Holm and the Welsh Coast and hills; south and west to the coast of West Somerset, the Hinckley Power Stations and the Quantock and Exmoor Hills. There was rather a lot of litter strewn across the dunes but from some of the higher points you can see inland beyond the caravans and the Levels to Brent Knoll and the Mendips. The beach is part of the Bridgwater Bay SSSI and part of the nearby dunes have been designated the Berrow Dunes SSSI.

Had a quick drive around the caravan site (the gate was open and reception closed !), think we could see where it should be but feared arrest for being weird if we started to search :-) Maybe one for the winter when the grocles have gone home.
