Parked in the car park at Penclawdd, walked up a lane then cut up through fields following the footpath. Trig tucked away in the hedgerow. Good views across to Bury Port. Carried on and down to the stile and back on the roads. Lovely lunch in the Cariad Cafe. Last trig on Gower now bagged.

I've logged this one as Couldn't Find It. We caught the train up from South Wales and stayed in Settle. Next day, train to Ribblehead and walked along the main road and up towards the trig following the dry stone wall. The weather was quite pleasant until we got to the top of the steep climb where it starts leveling out, and then it changed. Thick cloud, howling wind and rain made us turn back even though we must have been almost at the pillar. A wet and dismal walk back to the station where we had a lovely cup of tea standing by a real fire. A good call to turn back and live to Trig another day!!

Very enjoyable walk although found it hard going. Parked in little layby at the bottom of the drive leading up to Perth-y-pia. Short steep climb up to Table Mountain then across to Pen Cerrig Calch for lunch. From here Pen Allt Mawr looks miles and miles away but only took 40 mins to reach it. The pillar is badly damaged from the concrete cracking and spalling away. Pen Cerrig pillar is also cracking in a similar fashion and obviously constructed by the same team all those years ago.

Walked up Constitution Hill, out past the radar station and nearly as far as the drive to the big house. Thought there was no access so went back to the radar station, out on the coastal path, over some gates and eventually up the field to the pillar. Glorious views all round. On the way back I noticed the tiny Footpath sign pointing down the side of the big house. Aww, if only I'd walked a few more yards at the beginning.

Made a special trip here from South Wales after reading about it in Rachel Hewitt's book Map of a Nation. Parked in the church car park at Whicham and walked up the good stoney path. Steep at first and then more relaxed with amazing views out over the sea. Too hazy to see Scotland and Wales though. Headed north for the walk back dropping down towards Bootle and turning south parallel to the main road. Worth the visit.

I couldn't find this one - but that doesn't mean that it's gone. The area is very overgrown, there's lots of rubbish around and it looks like someone's back garden rather than a field so I didn't go in to have a proper look. REVISIT. I was cycling through Raglan a few weeks later and thought it might be worth the effort to pedal up for a second look for the trig. Yes, well worth it. The owners were out in the garden and immediately opened the gate for me, removed some mesh panels from the pillar and held the vegetation back so I could get a better photo. We chatted for a while, exchanged names and I went off down the hill very happy. What a nice day!

We tried to access the Beacons Way from the lane that heads north to Milaid but it was very narrow with absolutely nowhere to park. Drove back to Llanbedr and parked up near the church. Lovely walk up from there, through the woods and out onto the ridge. Great views of other trig locations but very windy today. Pillar is cracked but nothing serious.

No trouble parking for me - I cycled from Pontypool, although it was hard work lifting the bike over the stile in the corner of the field. Trig in good condition. Spotted pillar at Twmbarlwm, which I visited next. Very enjoyable day out in the sun. Hence 8/10!

Hiking boots not required! Called in while out for a meal in Swansea. Although the condition is good, nobody seems to have mentioned that the pillar is not vertical. The foundation has settled causing the pillar to lean over at a jaunty angle. Wonderful views across the Bay today.

Drove up to Ty Wilson on the lane running north east from The Hand after visiting the Wentwood trig. This lane is narrow, muddy and steep with grass growing in the middle. It was like a mini adventure into the unknown. Saw the friendly dogs at the barn but didn't disturb the owners. It was good to see the views and didn't mind not actually finding the pillar. Drove back down through Llewelyn's Dingle.

Parked near Bettws Newydd church, walked around the back past the old Yew tree and down to cross the stream at the bottom of the valley. A steeper climb up than I was expecting, through the fields and along the edge of the wood. The easier route to the trig point is to hop over the gate into the wood then back over another gate into the field. Trig is tucked away in the hedge line. Too misty to see the view but a good couple of hours out walking.

We made a lovely circular walk for this one. Parked by The Wheatsheaf in Llanhennock, walked down through the field on a footpath and back up passing a big house and a massive pig. We walked quite quickly through the pig's paddock! Trig still looking good in white paint. Back along the ridge road in the sunset.

Parked near Salisbury Terrace and wandered up various tracks until we were up in the low clouds. Damp and couldn't see more than a few yards in front of us. I had to use the OS App on my phone with the GPS arrow guiding us to the pillar. Cheating a bit but it worked great. No views for us today.

We had this route planned. Walk up The Rangers path that starts off from the station car park. Somehow we ended up at Rhyd Ddu car park, also at a station. All was well with amazing views until we got to the ridge not far from the summit. 1000 ft drop on both sides! It was a good job that it was up in the clouds and we couldn't see down. This is the SCARIEST path I have ever been on!! Very busy and no views at the pillar.
