Converted pillar. Now a surface block. Situated atop seemingly a tumulus. Great location, shame about the trig!

Fantastic cliff top views. Shame about the ‘conversion’ job. A bit cheap & nasty.

Located on the top of a tumulus, one of a pair, the OS dBase records this as a Block. It seems from the OS archive that there was briefly a Pillar here, constructed around late 1953 to early 1954 with FB S7866. By the time the trig was computed in June 1955 it had been replaced by a Surface Block, which the OS dBase records as being destroyed May 1963, but which seems to be extant. Large bolt measured it at precisely 3" diameter. Nice views from top of the cliffs.

Mrs Dusty & trigpoint
Looks interesting! Spotted 2 of these on my walk up from Trevelgue Head. This one sited over EABM (Environmental Agency Bench Mark I guess)Smart bit of kit.
Do people hunt for these? EABM

Good find by tom. Agree Remains would be a better description. Block clear, Bolt looks original, Block apppears to slope a bit. On the E side of hummock between alternative versions of the coastal path.

Status probably best described as Remains: looks like original pillar base which has made good with some newer concrete (now tatty as tom says) and serving as a Block. Rivet also battered and probably original. On top of southernmost of two mounds (tumuli?) beside coast path. Fine coastal scenery.

Tertiary station T044 in SX06, Bodmin secondary block. The OS describe it as a block computed in 1955 and destroyed in May 1963; the Trigonomy database states that the block was a replacement for a destroyed pillar with FB S 7866. The trigpoint now consists of a large brass bolt set into a large rough concrete base on top of a tumulus near a cliff edge. My granddaughter decided to accompany me on my morning constitutional along the cliff top coastal path from Watergate Bay. From the trig there is a view of the spectacular coastline in both directions. Newquay lies along the coast to the south; inland there is farmland, campsites and Newquay Airport. The coastal path offered the usual views of the nearby cliffs and beaches. Some birds were swirling around near the cliff faces and others were hopping around in the cliff top fields. Below the cliffs surfers, a kite surfer and a kite buggy were in action.
