Good condition trig atop rocky knoll. Superb views across the Wirral (and windfarms). Pillar recently repainted although starting to attract some name-scribbling. FB faces east-ish with north-ish sighthole open only. Cap missing with asphalt plug in place. FB number a bit hard to read due to repeated over-painting... Easy walk up from NT car park with Dyserth FBM and aux nearby

Parked in National Trust car park then short walk to the pillar. Lots of white paint on this one so unsure about cap but FB certainly in place. A friendly local pointed out some of the points that are in view from here. These include: Snowdon, Rhyl, Rhuddlan, Great Orme & the Marble Church. Beautiful spot and viewpoint.

ODP#20: 17th and last pillar on the ODP (under my 'within 0.5 mile diversion' rule!). And a rather fine one at that - bright white so visible for miles around. Very windy but clear blue skies so fantastic views (Anglesey included?). Bunch of flowers left at base - what a great place to be remembered. Cap filled but painted so can't determine with what. FB also heavily painted. N s/hole open, but pillar is otherwise in exc condition.

A nicer hill than earlier, fascinating to see that ribbon of limestone hugging the coast up to the Orme. A protected local spot one of those wilder than you expect places so can forgive Caz and her/his ilk for their meaningful messages on the trig.

The trig is sited on top of a limestone hill on the north western edge of the Clwydian Range to the south of Prestatyn. There is a National Trust car park nearby. The pillar, including the asphalt plug is painted white and has FB S/3535. The site has a wide view to the west across to Snowdonia and of the North Wales coast from Great Orme and Colwyn Bay to Rhyl and Prestatyn and the off shore wind farms of the Irish Sea. The hill top has been designated a SSSI.
