Easy. Had to walk about 20 yds! Although the views are not spectacular, from this point you can see the position of many trigs on the Black Mountains and surrounding areas.

Pleasant views all round and trig is in good condition. It has a small plaque on the side dedicated to a gentleman walker.

Roadside location, short distance from a cattle grid entrance to the field where parking can be had for a few minutes. Access to the field required to see the pillar properly. Some views from here, but not spectacular. Trig looks in good condition, but unable to access the rear as the hedge has grown up to it too closely. Original metal plug intact. A plaque has been fixed to the eastern side of the pillar in memorial to a walker, erected by the Chepstow U3A "a self-help organisation, dedicated to providing all types of educational, creative and leisure activities for older people, at minimum cost". I have never heard of them before, but thought they might like a small plug.

This should have been simple but as I drove up the road and pulled into the field entrance I noticed a huddle of people over the road in the garden chatting. I guessed one was the farmer so went over and asked if it was OK to walk the few yards to the trig to photograph it. Of course it was so no problems there.

The pillar is situated on the edge of a grass field on a hill to the east of Usk. It was visited on a pleasant short circular walk from the village church. Some of the paths were not very well signposted. A footpath enters the field over a cattle grid close to the trig. The pillar has peeling white paint and carries a memorial plaque. The metal cap with shallow lettering was hiding under a thin layer of ivy; it has FB S/3347. A landscape of low rolling hills of fields and woodland can be seen the north and west. The long ridge near Newchurch is to the south. Higher, rugged moorland hills are in the distance to the west. There is a surviving cut bench mark on the corner of the village church.

Although a footpath is marked here on the map there is no footpath sign. Easy to get to.
