OS records this destroyed September 1963, most likely when the estate was built. It would have been somewhere in the road opposite #58 Firs Ave. The 1965 1:10k map shows the trig along with Ty-Bronna and no housing.

Locked my bike up at the cycle rack in front of Lil Lou's Hair Design and then walked up here. Plenty of locals about shovelling snow off their drives.

No trig to be seen here

I recon this one should be logged as "Chaved" or "Nicked" or "Stolen" judging from the area - lock your car!!!

The site where the pillar stood is now on the pavement of Firs Avenue in the western Cardiff hilltop suburb of Pentrebane. From the site there is a glimpse of a distant hill top to the north, otherwise all that can be seen are nearby houses and the egg shaped Pentrebane water tower.

Position is on the pavement. Possibly moved during construction of housing.

Walked from the Ty-Bronna trig via the footpath to the south of the golf ball mast onto The Firs. My GPS indicated that the trig used to sit on what is now the east pavement.

Sorry Maurice you have logged Ty bronna not Fairweather. coords for this plot out on the east side of the road virtually on the pavement. I suspect from the out of sequence number that Ty Broanna may either have replaced it fresh or become its new home.

I don't work with GPS, apparently this is Ty-Bronna. Thanks to Rhayader-wanderer for pointing this out.
