An easy bag from the carpark due south. Footpath (akin to a motorway really) leads straight up to it. Glorious views. Vicious wind.

Footpath to trig had decided to turn itself into a small stream. But still a nice short walk.

A few photos of a night-time visit to Shilstone Hill. At over 400mAOD, the views over the Bristol Channel are stunning stretching from Barry in the east over to Worms Head in the west.
Shilstone Pillar by night 1 minute in the life of Shilstone Trig, 9:30pm 31st August 2008 lit by a torch. It was freezing cold, but well worth it!

This one's mounted on a large plinth a short walk away from the road. Good views in most directions.

Just a short stroll from the road, right in the middle of Exmoor with great views all around.

A shortish walk through the heather moor off the B3223. Very misty and the pillar appeared out of the gloom! However, on a good day this would be a super spot! It's all intact with the original plug on a super-strong concrete base. Many skylarks about and I heard a cuckoo as I parked the car.
