Could just about see the whole of Mid Wales from the trig on this delightful spring morning. Pretty much my highlight of the trigger's spring gathering. Spent the day walking with non-trigging friends Gill and Steve, but also bumped into Ted, Duncan and Alan on this hill. Youtube footage to follow ...

A great Spring day for walking and trig bagging. Duncan and I had this one as our main objective of the day which turned out to be a very pleasant walk us from the East.

First trig bagged on the Clun Mill Triggers 2017 weekend. From the W parking on muddy roadside verge. Walked over Stanky Hill en-route, then onto Pool Hill after. Pillar, located on a saucer barrow at summit of the marilyn Beacon Hill, is vgc; retains original top cap, lightly indented lettering; RHS and LHS sight holes open. Cloud down, no views.

Trig and tumulus surrounded by good views of rolling hills which we are now getting to see after the morning mist/cloud. Easy walking over pretty dry hills.

Lone chance for a pillar today. Cycled out from Kington YHA. Up past Llangunllo Station, and 2nd lane on left. One gate at end of tar leads on to good rideable track. Just a bit of grass to reach pillar with bike. Long pause to enjoy the surrounds.

Nice 13 mile circular from the very busy station at Llangunllo, walked up Glyndwrs way onto the moor, then hillbagged Pool Hill, Rhos-Crug, Stanky Hill, Black Mountain and Beacon Hill trig. Misty day but cleared throughout the day.

Minds in neutral, we went up the adjacent hill... Lovely views all around. Subsequently we got a proper soaking further along the Ceri Ridgeway.

Beacon Hill. From west over Black Mountain on way to summit and Stanky Hill on way back. Cool grey morning with high cloud so reasonable views.

Easy to reach from Glyndwr's Way but many of the paths bear no resemblance to the OS map. Empty moorland.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. OK summit, big wild view. Strong W wind, didn't let up all day. Obvious route from W: track to summit.

Having been soaked yesterday I opted to do some jobs around the house and pick up this "local" trig and associated Deweys as the weather cleared up in the afternoon. Also used the Llanbister Felindre link road parking just S of the bridleway near the high point. Direct route is very easy going if a bit wet, adding the two Dewey tops makes for a harder walk very similar to Hirnant yesterday but not as tough. Trig condition unchanged

A lovely spot on a heather moor. The pillar is surrounded by a small grassy patch. The plug is actually there - slightly-indented letters. No traces of paint. W sighthole open but others closed. Concrete base exposed allround about 6 - 8". Lovely views across the moors from here even though today it is a bit murky. Nice spot!

I ve been up here many times.. A lovely grouse moor near Knighton, on the southern side of the England Wales border. The summit is a tumulus surrounded by heather.
