Parked in the housing estate in a straight line from the trig across the minor rd. 250 yds from trig. Easy walk and very easy parking. Cracking evening with excellent views across to Devon and more. Sheep with lambs grazing and got some funny looks from the sheep.

There is a pull in on the mountain road just North of the trigpoint. Walk back down the hill and there is a sort of stile on the corner. Go over the stile and back up the hill in the field to the trigpoint (about 200Mtrs.)

This was my first trig logged in full winter conditions. There was a foot deep covering of pristine snow in the field to trawl through to reach the pillar and I had to scrape away a good bit of snow and ice to get at the flush bracket and cap. Most enjoyable :).

Located 100m from a minor road with difficult parking. The hedgerow is holly and impenetrable, but opposite the trig is a weak point that could be breached (unless someone applies some secateur action to this point it won't be open for long - the holly is growing fast). Pillar is in a rolling short-grassed pasture with sheep grazing. Pillar is in good condition, metal plug (no lettering on it), all sight holes open. Good views.

Pillar in very good condition. We were coming down the lane and spotted the pillar in the field so a quick detour back up the lane to get access via the gate by the public footpath.

Was in the area geocaching. Hopped over a gate at the corner of the field to get to trig but got through the fence on the way back to the road.

Great views to all directions. Met the farmer later who was a really nice chap.

another parking option is by the footpath further NW where you can get a care completely off the road then walk back to the gap

We parked in the first pull-in from the south east (look for the burnt out car). There's a gap in the hedge opposite then it's sheepy pasture up to the trig. Metal plug with no letters - very rare!
