Passed this one while geocaching on the 'Miserden Monster'. Access can be made from the near by field by jumping over the wall or, much easier, from the adjacent footpath, through a large gap in hedge, through a gate and up some steps! Seems unusual to have a trig on a reservoir.

Geocaching in the area. Parked in a large lay-by on the B4042, near the junction with Clay Street. I followed the footpath from that junction through the field until the stile in the corner - the trig is in the hedge near-by. There is a gap by the stile that gives access to the next field which provides a better view and a chance to read the FB. The trig was visited in early September so was hidden by a lot of fresh hedge growth.

Followed the N/S footpath to the east of the trig field, through a kissing gate and turned upward to cross the fence easily over a large wooden stile/horse jump (this looks newish at the time of writing).

Located just off the Ridgeway Walk which starts near Llantrisant Forest. Lots of pylons and a wind-farm which makes the area interesting. Ten minutes further up the walk is the ruins of Capel Llanbad (marked as St Peter's on the OS map) which has probably been in use as a religious site since the 5th century - worth a visit.

How do you lose a big concrete pillar on a hill? Well, I almost did today - it took some finding amongst the brambles, nettles and ferns in high summer. Got there in the end. Parked on a verge on the road, took the signed footpath to the masts and then the steps up to the top of the hill.

Had a look for this one but there is a massive hedge with brambles and nettles at GZ. Power lines hamper gpsr readings too. This might be better visited in Winter when the undergrowth dies back.
