Ready access from near-by FP. A bit of gardening revealed the Bolt.

The trig stands in the boundary bank between a grass field and an arable field in farmland to the west of Camborne. The platform is somewhat overgrown and the bolt is underneath a significant amount of vegetation. The grass field to the southwest of the trig was accessed from the adjacent field to the southeast. This field was reached by means of the footpath from the meteorological station to the west. The view from the platform is mostly of flat farm land. Carn Brea is on the sky line to the east and St Agnes Beacon to the northeast.
