Walked along the SWCP from Petit Tor. Found after much firkling in the gorse and now cleared to expose the pillar. Hard to find despite being so close to the pillar. Should be easier for the next trigger. Off to catch the bus back to Torquay and then another bus for Tor Hill and Daison Rock.

First visit a couple of years back without GPS, 30 mins peering into every bush from everypath. Partner not amused. This time it still took a while to find. 5m accuracy is enormous in this thicket. Then there it was. Now to reach it somehow without secateurs. A few mins of leg waving onto of the brambles and I was in. Good luck to the next visitor.

Yep, still there. Even has a real plug! (take the walk to the coast for some nice views, or approch from Anstey's Cove Road like I did, saddly can't go via Redgate beach like I hoped as it now closed. - although technically you still can :-0)

Trig not all that obvious from some of the main paths across the grassland. Nice views. Take care with inquizative kids as there seems to be some steep drops to the west of the pillar.

No problems getting to this one; it's right on the path across Walls Hill. Good views of Babbacombe bay are just a short walk away from this trigpoint.

Nothing new to add about the condition, or access situation. Walls Hill is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is (amongst other sites) looked after by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. It is public access throughout.

This one is on public land overlooking Anstey's Cove in Torquay. Easy access, as it is within 6ft of a footpath. Cap is intact and damage is only slight chipping along some edges.
