The site is now privately-owned and still being developed 3 yrs later. I visited a couple of weeks ago while running and encountered a very un-civil man. Today, suitably dressed and armed with clipboard I returned but access was open and nobody was around.The windmill, supposedly being developed, is derelict and the pillar overgrown with ivy. After a bit of tidying I photographed, logged and departed. What a shame.

The windmill and surrounding land has been sold and is currently being built on. The whole area is sealed off with high fencing. If I was braver I would've tried to climb over the gate but looked like I'd cut my leg open so took s pic from the other side.

Easy to locate, and on a quiet Saturday morning no problems accessing. Slowly being covered in brambles and bracken, but still there and will probably stay as long as the ruins of the windmill, which if it is listed, may be quite a while. Sorry no sun glasses.

Allowed to visit by builders working on adjacent house. A bit of a scrabble up through nettles to base of windmill and trig point. Good views of Torbay. Believe I lost my blue Uvex sun glasses here, a sad loss as I'd found them on Hkusam Mtn.,Vancouver Island, hope they find another good home.

Easy access from the road but that may change as the derelict windmill has now been sold, renovations, if they happen, might put paid to the pillar. But at present it's still there, sitting immediately adjacent to the windmill, but at least clear of what looked like a lot of vegetation. Original top cap has been lost, no plug; rear sight hole open.

Park in longmead road, and take path to windmill. Trig stands proud at the base of windmill, the windmill has a sold sign on it.

Odd spot sited right up against a windmill. Its also now inside a cave of a very dense and tumbling bush. Cap missing and has an interesting paint job.

Thought in back garden of 64 Dolphin Court Road - WRONG. No response at house so wandered into garden - no trig. Thru' back gate - trig by windmill!

Nice easy one this. Parked on nearby residential street and walked up Windmill Lane to old mill. Pillar is on a wall, east side of the mill, within a hedge. Needed to climb on wall to reach it. Plug missing

Easy find but the golf course must be long gone. Dense vegetation above trig made GPS log difficult. Some graffiti but otherwise good condition.

Found on a return visit. On my first visit, I had not seen any previous logs and a local said "No trig point around here".

Area is since 1960's a bungalow estate but in a little lane now squeezed by housing on both sides stands a stone tower presumably the old windmill. Pillar stands alongside in the ivy covered vegatation. Some painted graffiti. retains plug.

Easy enough to find at side of ruined windmill (I'm surprised it hasn't been turned into a 'des res'), which seems to be on a small patch of common land. Where is the golf course? Plug with indented lettering.

There was me busy putting the grid ref into the GPS when there was no real point as the rest of the family found this easily. Just next to disused windmill and easily visible at this time of year.

This is right next to the windmill down a little land behind some houses. Nothing special about this one I'm afraid.

It's in that there undergrowth. Why is it called 'Windmill *golf course*'?

Bit of product placement

N50 27.003 W3 35.074. This was a nightmare to find initially as it's hidden. A bit of poking about tho' revealed a nice condition pillar, underneath a load of vegetation. it is located right against the windmill. I should have given it 10 for the entertainment value, as it was a pig to find,

The pillar.
Close up.
The Plate.
It's in there somewhere ...
