A great spot that I have not been to before for some reason. The lower portion of the trig is slowly disappearing so I guess it will end up on it's side soon!

Parked in the layby at Bwlch Bryn-rhudd. Over the stile then steeply up. The slope eases a little before becoming even more steep towards the top. Wonder how long this pillar has left before it topples. Excellent view.

Lovely crisp day - snow on the tops. No-one about at first but as soon as I reached the top lots of walkers appeared from multiple directions! Busy in the Beacons, not like those remote & deserted mid-Wales trigs I'm used to!

Bagged this trig on a long walk to get 4 of the Fans in one of the less frequented parts of the Brecons, the Fforest Fawr. Weather was fine although a bit wet underfoot. We parked at the car park/picnic spot just north of Blaen-Llia, walking first over Fan Llia, then Fan Nedd (the first trig) via the Maen Llia stone. On to Fan Fraith and finally Fan Gihirych. We retraced our steps for the return leg as far as Bwlch y Duwynt and then contoured round to the west and south of Fan Nedd back to the car park. A satisfying 11.5 mile trog that knocked 4 peaks and 2 trigs off our list. Pillar is damaged, lumps of concrete missing, also surrounded by its own moat when we visited. Views were outstanding, as is expected in the Beacons when the cloud isn't down. The Fforest Fawr is one big private estate with a very limited number of permmisive paths across it, no access is allowed during the lambing season.

Wonderful walk up,managed to just say ahead of a group out of the Sennybridge traning camp but guess they did have bigger packs than me! But as most looked like they were about 20 think I did ok!! Pillar is badly damaged with a large chunk gone from the SE corner. Army checkpoint next to pillar and think they thought I was a bit odd, never mind. This was my third visit but had no photos.

Great clear day, walk from the north is longer but less tiring than the direct route and makes a three pillar walk possible (see Heol Senni). Damage appears no worse than Nalacs' visit while the moat was icy.

I was pleased that my 500th find was up a Welsh mountain, though it would have been even nicer if the cloud had cleared which it did do when I visited the sister peak of Fan Fraith some 20 minutes later. There is a boggy most around this damaged trig.

Logging this retrospectively from 2010. I think this day was the only day I have visited two trigs on the same walk, the other one being Fan Nedd. One of my best ever days in the Beacons, I remember it very well. Parked at the top of the zig-zag road up from Heol Senni.
