Rodney's Pillar was erected on the summit of the Breidden Hill in 1781-82 by local gentlemen to recognise the naval victories of Admiral Sir George Brydges Rodney. The structure is some 54 feet ( 6 m ) high.
Just visible is the top of the white triangulation pillar set at a height of 365 m.
View from the south-east.
... In 2023 it was found that the structure was so unstable that it would need to be dismantled and rebuilt.
