Another visit to find the remains of the previous pillar. Just in front of main pillar

11 mile walk from pass, over Cefn Y Cylchau, Garreg Las and along to Carreg Yr Ogof trig, back over Garreg Las and along ridge over Foel Fraith and onto Garreg Lwyd to trig, then back to car via Carn Pen-Rhiw-Ddu, then drove to and bagged Trichrug trig and Carn Goch later that day. Nice weather with clear views. Didn't know about this trig but spotted it looking different to surrounding rocks.

Lying approx 3m S of its replacement, this one lasted from 1939 until around 1956 when the replacement was built.

Another visit to one of my local pillars. This time in the company of Peregrinus. Great to meet him at last.

Half of old Hotine pillar lying a few metres south of its stone built replacement. Remaining chunks including two with top loops have been assembled and fitted neatly alongside the main piece to form a whole-trig shape. This had been done by Dusty during previous visits. Today he's met me at the car park and we make the short ascent together - great to put a face to a name. With S2158 Mynydd Llangynidr this recompletes my set of surviving Welsh trig pillars - I completed in 2007 but had not noticed the remains of these two.

Dead trig a couple of yards from the extant pillar on Garreg Lwyd. No spider and no FB visible - couldn't turn it over but the block seems to be from the part of the pillar above the position the FB would have been.

Visited this spot on numerous occasions. Returned to spot these remains which somehow I had missed. Collected as many bits as I could and put them together.

This wasnt on the database when we visited the pillar so entered this at a later date. Spent quite a while exploring the summit so no doubt would have seen the remains. Lovely place

From car park on A4069 - walked out to Garreg Las and back. Windy, hazy and hot
