Pleasant 12 mile walk on the Quantocks from Holford, walked up onto Dowsborough, along to Wills Neck (Bagborough) trig, along to Black Hill trig and onto Beacon Hill trig, back down to Holford. Dismal misty weather with rain, We should have been walking in the Scottish Highlands this week but the weather was so bad up there we ended up here instead.

Early morning visit with Cipollini junior. Parked at Triscombe Stone and followed path up to TP. Cracked all round, concrete plug, OS plaque, once painted white. Hazy early morning views from the top of the Quantocks (why is TP not called Wills Neck ?). Heard - and possibly saw - cuckoo, larks singing, buzzards and a stonechat (I think).

I know this TP as Wills Neck, there is even a local ale named after it with a picture of the trig on the bottle, quite tasty to. Anyway a bit nippy and misty up there today, 'headless horseman' weather. TP is looking a bit worse for wear, cracking up, is going to need some attention soon.

Pillar is located at Wills Neck, the highest point on Somerset's Quantock Hills. Parked near Triscombe Quarry and walked up the hill to the trig, then on to Aisholt and return through the southern part of Great Wood. Trig is in good condition.

Nearly dark when I visited. Some flowers left by the pillar. Surrounded by the same kind of fence as at TP1100. The nearest car park to the trig is the Triscombe Stone car park. It is accessible by road from the east, and via a steep track from the west. I would not recommend using the track (certainly not ascending it) unless you have a 4x4.
