From the N on good farm track RoW, then across sheep pasture. Pillar has yellow paint on 3 sides to approx half-way down. It's lost its top cap and has no plug; rear sight hole open and front plug 90% degraded. Before sunrise and hill fog down so no views.

First pillar visit for quite a long time. Came along with friends who knew the farmer which always helps when you then bump into the farmer when exiting the field. Plug missing. Great views. I thought for a minute that the trig pillar had been moved as there was a square bare patch next to the trig, but on talking to the farmer this is where a vessel holding salt for the sheep had been before he moved it.

Didn't get too close (the tripoint is on private land with no right of access) but the condition appears good. Unlike theb last (grumpy) finder, I had a lovely walk to and from the trigpoint with lovely views and good weather.

Ok views. parked to the N then a short walk in on ROW then across field. Usual S Wales approach ( broken glass, discarded cider cans, burnt out tyres and enough litter to fill a skip every mile) Pillar painted yellow.

A wet and misty day so I couldn't see the views from here. Visiting a nearby Geocache.

Surprisingly easy assent to this trig if you take the right path. The top of the trig has been painted yellow on three sides for some reason. The views from here on a clear day are very good. NE to Brecon, NW to Newport SW to Cardiff and over to Avon.

Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 6m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in decimal degrees (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input 51.6249N 3.39628W 336m. Output E303442 N192710 314m hence ST0344292710. Very good panoramic views.

Pleasant walk through the forest (which has been felled) and up to the trig. Good view of the prominent pit tip above Tylorstown - which is one of the best land marks in the Valleys. Plug missing. OS list the FB No as S2524.
