Walked across from road to west. Fortunately FB not buried. Lower bolt chamber exposed, but no lower bolt, quite possibly it's still in the ground as pillar lies where it had been originally erected. The 3 visible sight holes are open; there is a replacement asphalt top plug. Boggy, grassy views over the scrambler and quad bike tracks.

Well, its certainly toppled and now provided a good place to sit down - though it would have been better if it were upright of course. Walked up from Sengenedd.

Apart from being on its side, the pillar seems to be generally in fair condition. There are good views from this location, north to the Brecon Beacons and south across the Bristol Channel.

Pillar has been tipped over revealling approx 310sq x 70 dp recess in base which would have contained the wooden cover to the lower centre mark. Ground too disturbed to see lower block.
