Parked at the wind farm entrance and followed the tracks, mist clearing nicely.

Originally called back at Elgar farm but no probs going up via the wind farm track. A few cracks but nothing to really even think about giving it slightly damaged.

Spider centre open. Cycled right to the trig by the wind farm access road despite the signs, both the tractor drivers I met just waved.

Do NOT be tempted by attractive stile (and direct approach) at SN 663 858 - rough, wet and fence to climb (ie no path up hill!)

Good views in heavy showers. Mrs Dusty let me walk up by myself. She read in the dry. I got soaked.

The pillar stands in the corner of a grass field in a wind farm on a hill to the north east of Aberystwyth. It was reached on tracks from the minor road to the south west. The access road to the turbines directly up the hill from the farm buildings and disused lead mine to the south has now been designated a right of way. The trig lacks a cap or plug and has FB S5481. It has some minor surface cracking but appears to be structurally sound. The site looks north west over Borth Bog and Aberdyfi and west over the valley near Clarach to Cardigan Bay. The misty outlines of the mountains of the Lleyn are on the horizon to the north west and the Preseli Hills to the southwest. Clouds were sat on the summit of Cadair Idris beyond the mountains to the north of the Dovey. To the east and south numerous large green rounded hills of the Cambrian Mountains were on view. The whooshing and droning noises of the turbines was ever present.

I have mild tecno-phobia, the wind farm made me freak out a bit, so a quick shot of the plaque and I ran.

Lovely spot. Good views all round, if you ignore the turbines :) Walked up from S, up the RUPP then permissive path which follows the track to the reservoir. Plug gone.

Only 11 out of 19 working today about par for the course. That said they are a fairly quiet set so not too intrusive. Walked in from the NE where the Bridleway leaves the road N of the village. Lowland paths are a bit of a mess in terms of finding where they go. Ridge is fine. Looks like I'm following Glaslyn around. Trig in good shaps an has new stile over fence nearest it. Turbines now on the new open access series of maps

I walked down and then up from the parking space near spot height 186 - quite a trek. (Shanbe decided to stay in the car because her legs were tired!). Saw six kites circling above before meeting the farmer who was very proud of his windmills - and said they were a good source of income. They're not shown on the map but it would be hard to miss them. Good views, Plug missing.
