Didn't go for the muddy parking area (ST 09726 06915 - which wasn't actually that muddy) and parked at the main carpark (ST 09572 06862) shown on the map. Walked up the road to the ST 09726 06915 and then along track towards the trigpoint, then taking a beeline to the trigpoint. Bracken not too bad at this time of year. #57 of the trip.

My first attempt to find this trig pre-dated GPS and failed, so I was delighted to follow the marker on my OS Maps app which took me there after 10 mins of wandering through the surrounding scrub. Lots of hawthorn, dead bracken, fallen leaves and an egg-box terrain didn't help, but the dog enjoyed herself!

Keep your eyes peeled!

Muddy parking area immediately to the N. Scrubby woodland, plenty of bracken and bramble. Pillar has no top cap or plug; front sight hole closed, other 3 open. No views.

Second time trying for this one, massively overgrown in summer. Off to the left along a bridleway, wander through trees etc and you will find. Very missy but in good condition, plug intact.

Since Glaslyn's log in 2009, the "track to the left" is feint at best. Heaven help you in summer!

OS 1:50,000 doesn't indicate what is now well developed scrub - rhodedendrons, bushes, small trees, ferns and gorse. Started from bridle way and tried a few "paths". Pleased to eventually spot. Not covered by vegetation, but have to be near to spot.

Near a campsite I stayed at on previous visit. Easy find, walk 100m along bridleway then take track to the left. Pillar is 40m on LHS.

Followed track S from road, trig is on the left after about 50M or so. Tricky even in Winter if you are not paying attention.

2 of 4.When I parked in the car park by the bridleway I wasn't too hopeful for this one as the undergrowth was very thick.Set off down the bridleway and after 111 paces from the barrier posts (counted on the way back) I came across a path heading east.Followed this until it ran out and then carried on through wet undergrowth and bracken and luckily found the trig which is now much more hemmed in than in the photos.

Just off a bridle way with a handy parking spot at the end of it. A bit of snow on the ground as you might expect at this time of year at 283 metres. Plug missing.

In scrub, will be difficult to spot in the summer when leaves are on the bushes and the ferns have grown
