Lots of graffiti on the pillar but apart from that it's fine and it also has its cairn to keep it company.

From the N, parking in a layby on the mountain road junc A4107 & A4061. Trig is outwith the plantation so easy access; large beehive cairns close by. Pillar has lost its top cap and has no plug; all sight holes open.Some damage to top surface leaves one spider arm end exposed. Cloud down, no views.

#315 P#230 P2016#30. A straightforward walk along a good track to a lovely location with the cairns and the trig. Excellent spot.

Found whilst caching nearby - wished I'd noticed the other trig a few hundred metres away in the adjacent woods!

There are 2 cairns adjacent to this Trig with a further 2 circular piles next to the smaller one.These have either been robbed to make the new ones or perhaps new ones to start.

vgc, broken resin plug; fine location at end of ridge; 2 big cylindrical cairns; fiery frosty sunset which I had to myself after the quad & trail bikers had gone

This was a doddle compared to my lost one to the north. The trig stands near an impressive cairn. The view may be good but the cloud base had fallen by the time I got here and visibility was very limited. It was pretty dangerous going back to the car with scrambler bikes periodically appearing out of the mist towards me.

A couple of impressive cairns nearby. Plug missing.
