Bus to Banewn then Sarn Helen to a point about a mile due east of pillar to junction with forestry vehicle track. Follow winding vehicle track until about due south of pillar, where pillar visible on crest of low ridge, bit mossy, good, original cap. Very isolated feel in clearing but plantations in proximity limit views Pillar visible

From minor road to E. Mostly a good forest road nearly all the way, then a bit of rough boggy stuff for last 100m. Pillar has top screed missing from between 2 spider arms. Original top cap retained, with lightly indented lettering; RHD sight hole sealed, other 3 open. Fine views N, all other directions obscured by conifer plantations.

Approached from the east up some forest track - there were no signs to say not to so I think it was okay! The trig is currently out in the open on a small raised area, but otherwise it is a fairly indistinct spot. The trig is a bit mossy, but is in good condition with its plug in the top. Views aren't bad but a bit limited for two thirds of the circle due to trees.

Nice plug!

Circular walk from Henrhyd Falls car park (SN853120). Via FPs & roads N to Penwyllt, then across Ogof Ffynnon Ddu National Nature Reserve to Sarn Helen. Approached TP from E via forestry track. Good views to N. Retraced and continued via Sarn Helen to start point. Great walk in superb weather.

Looking N to Fan Gyhirych (L) and Fan Nedd (R)

Interesting Tring this one. Came across it by accident really. Quite bleak today and mist coming in.

Surprisingly pleasant location with better views than the map suggested. Accessed from the end of minor road due East(the road down to the carpark at the bridge mentioned by other visitors is badly damaged and probably accesible by 4x4 only.Parking at top available). ROW then forrest tracks to pillar. pillar has wire looped between hooks but otherwise in fine shape.

Walked up through the forest to find one of the Ystradfellte cache series and passed this on the way.

We parked at Blaen-nedd-isaf then followed the path over the footbridge and along the side of the wood to the trig. Not far but far from easy walking - very pleasant though. Plug with indented lettering.
