Intriguing. Nice to see this unusual trig after reading about it many years ago.

found while working in the area. this is PKB's 1500th trig and certainly a different bag.

Easy to access and find, definitely pushchair friendly. Decent views. Interesting to see a spider without pillar or flush bracket, glad to have bagged this oddity.

In wall by 'no tombstoning' sign. Easy to miss. Lovely views across to Mountbatten.

Complete with metal cap, shallow lettering. By yellow No Tombstoning sign. Very tranquil, early morning on a perfect spring day. Briefly parked nearby.

A brief return to my old home town to log this, one of very few spiders that may still exist, and maybe the only accessible one. The position on the sea wall means that observations were limited to an arc approximately NE to SSE, unless the surveyor wanted to risk tombstoning! It would be interesting to know what observations were made using this spider.

View over to Mount Batten Point The site of a former seaplane station, hence maybe the propeller mounted on a post.

First one for me too. Are there any others? Been quite keen to get down here since reading Tom's first log. Had an opportunity to slip down here from a Saturday afternoon shopping trip and jumped at it. Very interesting.

The trig, SX76/T064, consists of a spider set into the top of the sea wall next to the pavement alongside Madeira Road in the Barbican area of Plymouth. It was computed in 1946 and maintained in 1974. Slapster acknowledges its existence in his 2003 log for Old Stack. The site was reached by a pleasant stroll along The Hoe and Madeira Road from my hotel on Cliff Road. The spider has a metal cap with shallow lettering. Nearby a couple of 19th century cannon lookout across the water to Mount Batten Point and some signs on the wall warn of the dangers of tombstoning. The yachts in the Cattewater can be seen to the east and Plymouth Sound is to the south. The Citadel rises up behind and to the north a small part of the modern city can be seen. A distant Dartmoor hill is on the sky line to the north east.
