Visited on a very windy but sunny day. Lovely views of a wild sea today but luckily all the local razzamatazz was closed. Score for the views out to sea not for anything else.

Not exactly a difficult walk to this one. More difficult to try and get some decent photos without millions of other tourists in them!

I'm surprised you don't have to pay to log the "First and Last Trigpoint", just about everything else involves a charge. Parked at Sennen Cove and wandered along the footpath to the trig.

Has to get top marks, if only for it's location. Visited en route from Lands End to Penberth whilst "doing" the SW Coast Path.

Excellent visibility today. Could see the Isles of Scilly on the horizon. Was last here in the summer of 2009 whilst walking around the southwest. It was nice and quiet while I was at the pillar, but soon there were two coaches worth of tourists on the way.

Visited here many times before, but this is my first time logging the trig. A lovely place to walk the coastal path, with some cracking views. The tourist "attraction" has spoiled it somewhat, but in most places to can turn your back to it (and the crowds). A bit windy here today, but a nice day all the same.

Didn't log it on our last visit to Lands End in Aug 04 but since then it has been listed as YSM123 so popped back today to claim it.

Pillar sits behind the Longships Inn at the Landís End Ďattractioní which is a very disappointing collection of buildings. Thankfully I arrived after 5pm and all the attractions were shut! Pillar is stone-built and in good condition; FB faces N; S sighthole open, all others plugged. Paused afterwards to watch the sun slipping towards the horizon with a pint of local ale before heading for digs in Falmouth.

The pillar stands just below the wall on the edge of the beer patio in front of the conservatory of the Longships Bar of the Landís End Hotel. It is a stubby stone built pillar showing more cement than stone. The spider is offset and is plugged by a metal cap with narrow raised lettering. It has FB S8142. The view is mainly out to sea to the west. The Longships Lighthouse is a mile and a half off shore. Wolf Rock Lighthouse and the Isles of Scilly could be seen in the distance. The rugged coast can be seen as far as Cape Cornwall in the north. The nearby cliffs are spectacular and several seals were seen in the surf near the off shore rocks. The theme park is very commercial but the grand children did enjoy the Skull Rock 4D show and were very excited by the visit and winching demonstration by an air-sea rescue helicopter. Landís End is within the West Penwith sector of the Cornwall AONB and the First and Last Cafť is a Grade II listed building.

Had planned to bag three more trigs in the St Ives Area but due the heavy rain and bad planing i:e no waterproofs and wet through decided to visit this easy trig. Bit of a rip off £3 just to park car or is it my bad mood due to been in wet clothes? Trig easy to find with good view all round trig in good condition.Long drive home to Barnsley to look forward to.

Visited the trig point whilst on holiday in Cornwall.
10th Jul 2009 16:23 by Brisey
Late on a not very nice day so not too many people around, and the pillar is not at the main view points. A rather dumpy-looking pillar constructed of stones and cement, with too much of the latter, questionably worth the £3 to park to view it.
16th Jun 2009 11:10 by asbown
ignored by the masses walking not feet away,good views but far to many people about.

Logged while walking the South West Coast Path. It's taken us four years to get to this point so it was a bit of a landmark. Feels good to log this one.
7th Jun 2009 10:35 by Saltash Ramblers
Parked in Sennen and walked the South Coast path to get here. The weather was a bit overcast and windy, visibility was just enough to make out the Scily Isles on the horizon. Now we have the Lands End trigpoint, will have to make an effort to get the John O Groats (Duncansby Head) trigpoint aswell.

Stone built pillar with intact plug below wall in front of the hotel.

This was the final T/P of the third day of my expedition into the south west. Iíd sat in the car for a few minutes but it had been raining steadily for the last couple of hours and didnít look like stopping any time soon so I braved the weather and headed around to the rear of the hotel. What those folk looking at me through the window of the Longships Bar though of the idiot taking pictures of a lump of rock in that weather I can only imagine. The pillar is built of local stone instead of cast concrete and has a full compliment of metalwork. All very nice, but why did they put the spider so far off centre? The view was just what youíd expect... sea to the west, hotel to the east and not a lot worth mentioning in any other direction. Possibly it would be more inspiring on a warm, sunny afternoon. The sight of those drinking in the warm was too much.... I checked into the hotel for the night and joined them.

We had been here before to look around but did not get the trig, so this time H ran in to the attraction to get it. Lots of people around. Admired the views out to Longships

Logged this whilst working from Lands End to Portcurno. Lovely place spoilt by the theme park. Visit for the exceptional views of surrounding coast and Longships.

Great views to sea, and you have your back to most of the crowds :-)
22nd Aug 2006 15:45 by Shamus
We only really bagged this one becuase we were there.Lands End theme park is not one of my fav places to spend the day.We parked there and took the coast path to Sennen and back. Pillar looks fine but always seemed to have someones child on it, including at times one or both of mine!
22nd Aug 2006 15:45 by abi
we bagged this one because we were in lands end i really like it at lands end but dad doesn't so we never get to stay for long :(
3rd Aug 2006 14:21 by sykesfamily
Forget the car park, do the circular walk from Sennen Quay to Nanjizal and back via Lands End. Their were plenty of seals to see en route and rumours of Basking Sharks, though we saw none. Beautiful day.
23rd Jun 2006 13:00 by jameswameek
Great day, lovely views. £3.00 for parking, but plenty to see and do at Lands End.
16th Oct 2005 11:56 by Nr
Refused to pay the car park fee (tell them you're staying in the hotel!!). Hate commerciliation here but just keep your back to it and enjoy the views. The Isles of Scilly can be seen on a fine day.
