First top of the year, and just setting out now on another overnight walk to get things going again. Easy trig find.

easy walk up from the reservoir by the housing to the south. park there as there are no options at the road head. farmer very pleasant sharing a few minutes about the nice day and forecast of snow on the hills. trig itself has extensive views with carmarthen itself largely hidden.

Parked at second set Resr gates @SN422216. However, plenty of room to park just before gate to farmyard. Friendly farmer

Parking near covered reservoir at end of Penlan Voss farm access road. Walked through farm asking permission from Mrs Farmer, who readily gave it. Trig found in good condition on small mound before steep escarpment to NW, at summit point of this HuMP. Presented with lovely serene views westward and a muck pile and wind turbine eastward, we chose W as the best option and proceeded to eat a late lunch under a warm late summer sun before driving home to Wiltshire. Pillar found in good condition; original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open. 360deg panoramic views.

Drove up to Penlan Voss, spoke to pleasant woman who said it was fine to visit pillar, had long chat ( well was long if you know welsh farmers) who told me the OS had used pillar when the A40 Carmarthen bypass was built. Great views pillar in good shape and farmer views it as important so should be there for a while.

Parked at the water resevoir on way up to Penlan Voss farm and detoured into fields to pick up summit. Clouding over and windy at 13:20 but still good views on walk of Carmarthen.

vgc; metal cap shallow letrs - Access:fiddly access across mdws from FP @ 418217 - Hill:Ok summit; surprisingly attractive view but awkward approach. 2006 update, c/o Rod Sladen: S2317 is on Pen-Lan-Ffos TP; Henallt TP being its predecessor with the same FB.
