A super little hill, 189m P62, Clem-Yeaman qualifying on distance. Also ex trig pillar now a Bolt :-). I was visiting a local farm to do a TB DRF, stunning weather for March.

Replacement bolt is c. 0.4m in from outer ring, ESE from centre. No trace of original trig base. Lovely spot on a sunny day, car park to E

i drove past this hill in the lorry and decided there must be a trigpoint up there, i did'nt look it up on the map because i had'nt got that particular one, so we just went up to have a look, after a steep walk we found the monument to jeremy thorpes wife but no sign of a trig. when we got home i looked on the web site only to find it should have been there but is now missing

Non-(re)visit log: there is supposed to be a Bolt there, at 258240.906, 129563.313 according to the OS trig archive, also a Centre (presumably the centre of the monument) at 258238.547 129564.359 Sounds like the Bolt is 2.58m ESE of the centre of the monument, but is a new bolt not the old trig base (which was at 258238.984 129563.898, i.e. 0.63m SE of centre of monument). Judging by the size of the monument it will have put paid to any trace of trig / base.

The monument, seat and it's letting all designed by Clough Williams-Ellis the creator of Portmeirion in North Wales. Caroline Allpass was the daughter of Warwick Allpass and Marcell William who married Jeremy Thorpe and died in July 1970 in a car accident in Basingstoke.

In the area! Worth a visit for the location.

Again, I knew it wasn't there but the thought of the view from the monument was irresistable on such a lovely morning - and so it proved. Impressing monument on, presumably, the spot where the pillar once was. Great spot!

There's a monument at the top of the hill, but no sign of the trig. According to an inscription on the base of the monument, it's 629 feet up. Excellent views all around, of Barnstaple, Landkey, Dartmoor, Hartland Point, Lundy and (dare I say it) a disused quarry! I parked in a layby on the road south of the hill and headed up via a permissive path opposite the road down to Horswell Farm.

We new the trig wouldn't be there but fancied the walk up this fine hill. Contrary to what Hollowig says there is a very good track from the east opposite the minor road that goes to Downrew Farm. The trig has been replaced by a monument to Caroline Thorpe who died in 1970 aged 32. She was the wife of Jeremy Thorpe (ex leader of the Liberal Party) and lived nearby at Cobbaton. It's a fine monument and much visited by locals so right of access is no problem. The monument was erected in 1971, the same year as the trig was destroyed so presumably it was on the same spot. The OS list the FB no as S5317. Excellent views.

My OS map doesn't have a trig at this location, but ok, we'll accept it's up there - except up there didn't look easy through the gorse ... so I'll never know for sure, unless I go back (or someone else goes up there).
