Gower AONB trig bagging day pillar 1/14. Parked in small layby on A4118 near Fairwood Lodge. Some boggy sections encountered en-route to the trig. Not the greatest view.

Middle of common, rather boggy even in midsummer. Surprisingly hard to see when approaching from the SE, since it's not on any real high point, top is missing and vegetation is encroaching. Parking: lay-by on A4118 opposite Fairwood Lodge

I'd love to give this Pillar a higher score but the poor thing just doesn't deserve it. Damage harkens back years judging by the logs. The question is why? Swansea's "airport" is nearby; even that looks dilapidated. Boggy moor path from parking location adjacent to campsite & farm entrance. Catapiller for effect on FB.

Also logged as YSM250 I had a little mishap at this trig, I wedged the GPS in the top hole where the spider is missing to take a data shot and while retrieving the GPS I fumbled with it and it rattled all the way down to the bottom. If you want it take a jack hammer along and it's yours.

The pillar is quite visible and easy to access being on an open common with supposedly a footpath passing it. I parked on the roadside to the north and yomped across the Common to the pillar. Bit of a sad sight really as the top is badly damaged. But what the heck it is still there. Reasonable views from this location. Never really found a proper path back.

Fairwood pillar is in a remote location on boggy ground with nothing much in the vicinity. It is quite severely damaged on top. Visited to claim the YOSM cache.

I had a dash to this one on a cold, dank miserable summers??? day, it was very boggy underfoot and the sight of the poor damaged trig did nothing to lift my miserable mood. No views today so all in all a quick dash and bag for the numbers. The rest of the Fishteers team stayed nice and dry and warm in the car. 27/08/10 Now logging as GC45CC YSM250

Access is quite easy, not far from the road, but the ground is uneven and boggy at parts. The piilar is just a mess... and next to it, there is a skull (maybe of a cow) with the words 'This belongs to Rachel And Kelly' written on it in red ink. Not the most impressive of pillars and hte landscape about isn't much to look at. Swansea Airport is nearby.

Bit like some of the New Forest trigs, close to a road but boggy wet heat to cross to get there, uninspiring views and a badly mauled trig make it the least impressive stop of the day including the missing Kilvey hill trig

I wonder what the story behind the damage to this one is. The top is sheered off like the top of a hard boiled egg. The flush bracket has a metal tag wired to it with a letter A on it and there are feathers around the base. There is a footpath marked on the map but not much sign of it on the ground but access is easy in dry weather.

Flush Bracket plus A tag!
