Easy parking at the mountain cafe. Lovely sunny day meant great views. Only a few minutes easy walk from the cafe, just cross the road and head for the high ground to see it. Busy with dog walkers, lovers, skivers etc. Could only tig the pillar as I didn't want to disturb the lady sat on the exposed base who seemed to be doing a sketch. Condition appeared good at quick glance, and I did make a couple of taps as I walked past on the path. Biblical inscription on nearby stone. Great view of castle and estuary and much more. First Welsh trig bagged.

Good parking at the cafe on the A469 with just a short walk on even grassy paths to the summit of this HuMP. A popular area for dogs and for their human walkers who meet here to chat. This was an easy bag, with some excellent 360deg views. The trig is generally in good condition; sight holes are all open; cap has been replaced with a tarmac plug; the concrete plinth is exposed.

The pillar stands on the rough grassy summit of hill to the south of Caerphilly. Easy parking and tasty snacks are available from the nearby car park at the junction of the A469 Watford Road and the B4600. It has an asphalt plug and FB S2289. The site has an impressive view over Caerphilly, its castle and the neighbouring valleys. Distant hills could be seen to the north. The Bristol Channel and the hills of Somerset are to the south.

Parked at the car-park to the south east and enjoy ed a really blustery stroll to the trig. Wonderfully dark, threatening skysaround limiting the views or the surrounding hills. Came here after a lovely visit to the Castle, and afterwards had a great cuppa at the log-cabin refreshment booth at the car-park. 271m Me, Liz

Good views over Caerphilly and the surrounding countryside - north to the Brecon Beacons and south (as in the image of the trig point) across the Bristol Channel. Fortunately, someone has taken steps to try to stop the erosion around the pillar.
