From the layby. The sheep are obviously used to visitors as they came begging for food. Good view N.

Easy to access by parking in the layby on the main road and then over the stile to the tussocky sheepy ground. Found the trig, then a geocache before heading westwards into the forest for the TuMP.

Found as YOSM 229. Convenient parking opposite the stile that gave easy access to the TP. Very cold and dark by the time we arrived here!

#318 P#232 P2016#32. Good parking then crossed road and over style and followed man path to trig. People keep pulling into the ladybird, sitting, then heading off again. We were worried this was a dogging spot.

Another location which the wind and the rain was really strong. No views either due to the low cloud.

Easy access from a large parking area on the A4233 SW from Aberdare. A stile in the roadside fence gives on to the heathland with a short walk to the trig. The pillar has an extensive horizontal crack running all way round it at FB height, with some vertical cracks extending down into the plinth. Pehaps it's condition should be downgraded to 'damaged'?. 2 sight holes are sealed (front & back), the other 2 open. Tarmac plug has replaced the metal cap. Good views north to Aberdare.

Found while at the local South Wales event. Since it was one of 'Ye Ole Survey Monuments' and the start of a cache it would have been rude not to visit
