Stunning views in all directions.. also found the WW1 lookout post just below the trig.. I found the names of 2 Royal Navy men etched into the concrete saying they were there 1914-1915. Commander J J W Calderon and Deputy D J W Edwardes

Probably the easiest "classified hill" I've ever done, up from the adjacent NT car park (free) then another restless for the head beautiful walk - down to Strumble then along the coast - for a second climb in warm sunshine, the other tors on the range well worth a stroll.

From car park on minor road to E. Short walk up to this quite spectacular little rocky tor with the trig prominently atop. Pillar sits on a large concrete plinth at summit of this HuMP; cap missing, no plug; RHD side and rear sight holes open. Excellent 360deg panoramic views, especially to nearby rocky promontories. Nearby remains of WWI lookout post.

My friend visited this at the weekend and facebooked it. I always thought it was a WW2 gun placement so went and took a second look - had never heard of trigpointing before. Awesome views of the lighthouse from up there.

Easy to reach from convenient parking spot provided. Good views from our breezy perch over Strumble Head with the lighthouse clear in the murky grey conditions. Put a roof on the old look out and you could have a nice little des res perhaps.

vgc, no cap or plug, bilingual GPS plaques; spider with VL 1940 neatly inscribed with punchmarks. Remains of small building also has its builders names written in concrete. Great little rocky summit, over looking a fine piece of Pembs coast. Wide green track from car park to E, leads to summit. Late FB no, apparently replaced S1558.
