From New Radnor on a reverse direction of the Nuttall 11.4 walk. Pillar, with exposed foundations, sits atop a prominent barrow at hill summit. Some minor fracturing on top screed and small piece of concrete chipped from one top corner otherwise good. Original cap has been lost, no plug; all sight holes open. Rain-sodden panoramic views through low cloud.

Above date is most recent of five visits, first on 06/03/1977. Trig point stands near WT station aerial. Lovely day on Radnor Forest with lots of bilberries to eat. Once ate our butties here as great chunks of ice were falling from the mast.

Nice walk over from the forest entrance at New radnor via Badlands/Bache Hill on a warm sunny afternoon. Distant views in most directions, although the foreground is maibnly moorland. You could cycle up to this one if you wanted to by following the access track through the forest that leads to the nearby transmitter station.

Re visit to photograph. Continuation from Badland hill,more snow filled paths but a lovely area that is often overlooked for more popular locations.Scenery is good,not dramatic ,but well worth the effort.

This trig is not the highest point of the Radnor Forest but out of all them commands some of the finest views. Been here on this summit many times especially to work on the Police radio tower. The tower can be seen for miles as far away as the Birdlip viewpoint near Gloucester...!

Cycled right to the top on forest roads. I think this is a UK altitude record for my bike (650m). Slightly disappointing summit due to presence of mast and flatness of the actual top but the views across the horseshoe were good.
