I've been here before but had no record, so after a visit to Ottery I took the dog for a walk up here. A very nice spot with a majestic maple alongside the path to the top from the NT car park.

Last hill/trig of the day after a round of 25 assorted bags. Small car park to E side of the hill fort. Easy stroll to the top with low winter sun providing good light. Pillar has no top cap or plug; RHS and LHS sight holes open. Extensive views all directions other than S where trees obscure.

Convenient lunch spot en route back from Cornwall. Short walk from NT car park to top of Iron Age hillfort - according to tinternet, still a centre for paganism. None apparent today - merely a trig with centre and E and W s/holes open, otherwise vgc with extensive views.

Turned a 360 mile journey home from Truro into a 380 mile one bagging this one, my first Devon trig and a primary to boot! I left the A30 at Monkton following some very narrow and muddy lanes to Beacon then to the NT car park located to the E of the hill. Look for the small gap on the W side of the road its not obvious. From the car park there is a gate. Instead of the obvious path shortly after here turn right and you can follow a grassy path to the summit. Trig in good condition, missing cap. Lovely views, interesting hill fort location.

Almost had to visit trig as I was walking past it to get to a geocache this afternoon, so it would have been rude to have ignored it! Like others I found a difficult way to get up here - and a much easier way down back to the carpark! Wonderful views of Devon from here too!

First proper - though brief - trigpointing expedition of the year. Parked to East then straightforward climb up to TP, sited to N of copse on top of hillfort. Plug missing - just a void - but otherwise vgc with OS plaque. Early start; very chilly, but sun rising, birds singing, and a lovely viewpoint.

Easy to find and only a short walk uphill from the N.T. car park. It's amasing to think that this hill fort was constructed nearly 2500 years ago without a JCB or any other power tool. The Beech trees are a Victorian addition.

Nice location. Parked at track off the lane to the E, but didnt think the N path looked good, so ended up circleing to S, (pleasent but hard work in the heat!), finally found access to top from N, accompanied by a herd of cows. Then on the way down missed the path, and ended up taking (still passable) path down trough woods and overgrown brackon.
