From the bend in the road. Steep pull up rewarded with a good view.

A lovely little hill indeed. Parked at the bend in the road to the SE for and easy walk up over the stile. Great views today of the beacons and all around. After going back down we did the circular walk via the waterfalls and returned for a drink in the Red Lion.

A HuMP within the Brecons Beacon National Park; very prominent and clearly visible as we drove SW towards it after visiting the Cader Fawr trig. A short, but steep, walk up from the 90deg bend in the road SE of Penderyn. Pillar is in good condition; 3 sight holes open, 1 sealed; cap replaced with bitumen plug. Impressive views E to large mining operations. Although a little further S and W from the main Brecon range and over 100m less elevation than our previous trig (Cader Fawr), views were still very good.

PArking is possible by the bridleway on the corner without obstructing the fence and the entire route is now access land. Unbfortunately todays crisp frost has now given way to an encroaching frontal system so limited views

Grand views from here, and well worth an '8' even given the eyesore of the quarry, which ruins the view in one direction. I love the desolate landscape in the Beacons! (And from here, you can see all the way to Trecastle, TP6568, with ease...)

Easy access to this trig via the bridle path at the sharp corner in the road. There's a stile which gives access to the hill. A steep climb up to this white painted trig. Good views of Penderyn Quary and and the and the open countryside beyond. Tarmac plug.
