Easy trig to end a thoroughly enjoyable day out around Exmoor bagging seven different pillars. Nothing to say about this one that hasn't already been said.

Second of only two trig pillars directly on the route of the Two Moors Way. Misty today, so no views.

After a day of fighting my way into hedges it was nice to come to a pillar that was out in the open. Being just off the Two Moors Way makes access very straightforward. Pillar is in good condition although the plug has disappeared leaving it open to the elements.

Got this one on a round walk from Hawkridge via the Hawkridge Ridge. Typical Exmoor moorland plateau with some good views especially to south and west(at least from the road there is). Pillar has very minor cracks and has remnants of white paint. Plug is missing, hole unfilled.

Not too difficult to find and a lovely walk t near by Anstey is recommended.

Getting late, so was quite tricky to find. To much gorse for any great view.

I was caught between the unspeakable and the uneatable - the hunt was out all over Anstey Common.
