Parked on minor road to W, walked up the hill on a track not shown as a PROW on OS map, but didn't seem to be a problem. Pillar in fairly good condition - minor chips to top edges, spider defaced with initials and dates; cap missing, replacement asphalt plug in place; 3 sight holes open. Excellent 360deg views, local conurbations and coastline to W particularly good.

Parked in Aberavon and walked up to Cwmavan alon river and road. Walked up through the top of the estate to the minor road and ended up approaching the trig from the west. Heavy mist toady. I could hear voices somewhere but did not see anyone. Trig looked in good condition.
