Visited to see if I could see the Bolt (SW63/013) which is on the NW angle of the platform of the monument. No access, and I failed to find a point where I could see it. Monument is a fine view point.

Visited on holiday in Cornwall, en route between hotels at Newlyn and St Agnes. Parked at junction of Druids Road and Wilson Way then walked up the hillside to visit the monument and fort. This was long before I knew its significance in relation to the Retriangulation, but my notes of the trip were good enough to be able to get a pretty accurate time for my visit, and a mention that the fort nearby seemed to have been converted into a restaurant. Will try to dig out some photos of the occasion if they exist!
