This pillar is one of only two that remains of the Walnut Tree Viaduct that carried the Barry Railway over this valley. I don't know whether the cut mark would have been at the bottom or not. The location is pretty impossible to get to sandwiched between the railway and the River Taff. I took pictures from both sides and used a zoom but failed to see a CBM. The East side of the pillar was used to inscribe words to celebrate the Queen's jubilees. The former isn't so much an inscription but extra pretend bricks stuck onto the pillar which are now falling off in places.
