From track to south after crossing on King Harry chain ferry. Around farm up overgrown track. Spot height in scrubby area seemed lower than wild meadow to NW.PeterD06/08/2023
With L from Feock across the quirky King Harry Chain Ferry (5 min crossing - 50p charity donation if on foot). We found a little path N in the woods along the shore to reach Tolcarne Cottage -once the secret office co-ordinating USA troop embarkation for the D-Day landings. On June 6 1944 this beautiful corner of Cornwall was the last tranquil land some of the 27,000 US soldiers would ever see as they boarded landing craft here before arriving on hellish Omaha Beach. We followed the tarmac track uphill which had been cut through the steep virgin woods by the US Army to bring tanks down for loading. Barges of ammunition were loaded in Truro and hidden up these creeks under trees. FP up from water edge to summit blocked off by new cottage owners. Met friendly dairy farmer at summit - his parents remembered a big US tented army camp in the fields, with a canteen tent, and a curfew to limit the wanderings of the American troops (over here, over paid and over sexed, so the saying went)Chris Pearson19/02/2023

Five remaining T0s on the Roseland Peninsula in pouring rain. Pretty miserable and nothing much to say about any of them.clivevilla28/06/2022

Left Denise on boat nursing broken ribs. Pleasent walk up hay meadow with flowers from Smugglers Cottage on bank of River Fal. Fairly level summit with highest ground at edge of field NE of farm. Small enclosed area with 88m spot height marked on map is scrub/rubbish and appears lower. I also visited the high gound ~1km to the S with comms mast but it's lower. (83m by GPS)RichardM10/07/2016
88m spot ht isn't footpath but tiny scrubby nettly brambly field directly NE of (behind) farm. Looked down on it from hedge bank junction 20m to east; also point 60m NW near edge of arable field seems as high or higher and more central to the contour: all pretty levelRHW08/07/2016
