From unfenced minor road to E; good parking. Wide, short-grassed track to pillar at top of hill of same name. Pillar has 4 memorial plaques, 3 for what seems to be members of a walking group (Drover's Walkers?), and 1 for a dog. Nice coat of reasonably fresh whitewash. Original top cap retained, deeply indented lettering; LHS sight hole open. Nice polished metalwork. Misty panoramic views. Looks like some damage to the top from my photo but none noted at time of visit.

The pillar is highly visible and easily accessible being adjacent to tracks and paths. I parked on the road to the east. Pillar in good condition except that the plug is missing. A really lovely area. Several memorial plaques to drovers who have enjoyed life up here.

Parking on roadside about one and ahalf KM to the SE linkable with Merthyr Cynog on good bridleways in a longish round trip (about 6km). Ideal evening route for the mountain bikers amongst us
