Up road and track to house at the end to ask permission to park for half an hour. Three lots of gardening needed, twice on stiles then to get access to the little copse and safe ability to get over double bwf. Nice evening light streaming through trees when eventually got there.

after a sumptuous christmas lunch we were let out of the salt mine early and with daylight remaining I parked up on Leckwith old bridge across the Ely river, climbed directly up the escarpment through the woods, path non existent but woodland reasonably open and crossed field to the small copse of christmas trees and very well preserved trig

Just inside E corner of copse next to water tank. Revisit in search of predecessor but nothing found in vicinity apart from large lump of concrete, possibly left over from tank installation.

another classic mess, mud, very steep bank, barbed wire, very moody cows,locked gates and even when 10 metres away we couldn't find it, all in all a fun hour up and10 minutes straight down without any problems.

Parked at start of minor road leading to Leckwith Hill Farm. Walked up road, then RoW across muddy pastures before veering N off-piste through much more mud! Pillar located in a small copse adjacent to a circular water tank at the summit of Cock Hill. It replaces an early pillar that had FB S2336. Current pillar retains original top cap, with lightly indented lettering; all sight holes closed. Pre-sunrise photos. No views.

Plenty of room to park at bottom of minor road to SE @ ST160746. From FP, gates from ST154748 lead to trig field. Trig just inside copse at fence corner

Final pillar of three days' trigging around Cardiff and the surrounding countryside. Glad to have got this particular one out of the way.

Pillar is surrounded by a barbed-wire fience and bushes - it can just be seen through them. Having read the previous log can undersatnd the difference - took the RH gate & no stile on that side. Still looks pretty overgrown everywhere.

Satellite photos help here because the clearly visible concrete water tank is within a couple of meters of the trig. I have marked this as a five because the immediate view from the trig is poor due to obscuring trees. Walking around a bit pays off because you get a feel of what the views may once have been. The Garth Hill trig TP3324 is visible with all three burial mounds. Also nice views over the channel.

We managed to park at the end of Woodlands Lane just before the farm and where one footpath drops back down into the woods. We took the path past the mast and then followed hedge lines to the trig. We were to the east of the hedge where the trig is and this involved climbing over a pretty mean barbed wire fence. Easiest way would be to keep to the west of the hedge where some new trees have been planted. The trig is next to a suppurating concrete water tank in a thicket of young conifers. As R W says not a brilliant spot. Plug with indented lettering.

Why was this built here when there are far better viewpoints within 250m? Ground very wet and highly poached on most nearby gates

Parked in the large layby on Leckwith Hill opposite the phone box marked on the map. Lies in a small young christmas tree copse next to a round concrete water tower about 15 feet tall. If accesing from south there is a small stile into the copse.
