Was dark at time of visit, Pillar appears to be in good condition and it looks as it is located in a sort of garden extension. there is a caravan nearby. too dark for pictures and didn't want to use flash in someone's "garden"

I couldn't find this one - but that doesn't mean that it's gone. The area is very overgrown, there's lots of rubbish around and it looks like someone's back garden rather than a field so I didn't go in to have a proper look. REVISIT. I was cycling through Raglan a few weeks later and thought it might be worth the effort to pedal up for a second look for the trig. Yes, well worth it. The owners were out in the garden and immediately opened the gate for me, removed some mesh panels from the pillar and held the vegetation back so I could get a better photo. We chatted for a while, exchanged names and I went off down the hill very happy. What a nice day!

Park in lay by opposite. Through gate to a very untidy field. Lots of 'bits' propped up to trig. Easy find.

A surprisingle pleasant spot in the winter sun with views to the Black Mountains. Didn't think I should hang around on the bench as it's not a footpath - but I can see why they put it there.

Easy acces from a farm gate at side of the road, the trig is a few meters inside the field. Parking easy across the road. Pillar is getting overgrown with small thorn trees growing immediately next to it making clearing the undergrowth difficult (note to self - put some secateurs in my pack). Pillar is in good condition, original metal plug present. Some views, but nothing too interesting.

An easy hop over gate and found among undergrowth at edge of field. A diversion off my route from Worcester to Cardiff en route to visit friends in Llanelli.

Almost a roadside pillar. Parked at road junction and entered field (with chickens) to reach pillar. In good condition with original plug. An unremarkable location but pillar survives.

Just inside field off road, if I remember rightly. Looking at photos was a bit overgrown with hawthorn. Logging 7+ years after visit.

Parking close by and then just a hope over the gate to the trig and loverly views. For some reason somebody had painted faces on a number of tree trunk slices, a couple of which had been placed on top of the trig.

Fantastic views of many of my favorite mountains to the west and north west. It's certainly easy to point out a few trigs from here. Access couldn't be easier.
