Parked in quarry entrance off the A4054 just S of its junction with the A470. Walked up the quarry access road onto the escarpment and followed trods to pillar. Excellent view.

Parked at end of Crabtree Walk in Trefechan. Across golf course to open access land. Pillar to side of large shelter cairn at top of Cefn Cil-Sanws hill. Looking a little sorry for itself with large fractures on 2 sides and the top badly chipped leaving end of one spider arm exposed. Top cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open Nice 360deg panorama.

I parked just down the road from the golf course to the south and walked up the marked bridleway first of all that peters out to nothing and then across rough and rocky ground to find the obvious trigpoint. Snow on the Beacons to the north (which soon disappeared behind cloud) and a smattering under my feet. Good all round views it has to be said. Trig in good condition but missing plug.

Bit of late April snow!

Found as YOSM 400. Parked at the golf club and made our way on the nature trail to the back of the course and then across the moor to the TP on a small hill. Stunning views all around.

A mizzly morning with poor visibility. I was in the area shadowing DoE kids. In a break in activities another leader offered to teach me some navigating skills. I said yes, as long as it ended up at this trig point! We parked in the golf club car park to the south and initially headed up the bridleway then over stile onto open moorland with lots of ferns. A large shelter for a small hill adorns the top next to the trig.
