Trig in Spaceguard Centre. E mail mail@spaceguardcentre.com for permission to visit. Owners fed up with people wandering their grounds to visit trig point, as it is there home. (inconsiderate) Permission is freely given if asked. Trig in good condition, painted white with Metal Plug. Did the tour afterwards which was very interesting

Walked from Knighton and going onto Norton then Ackhill Farm before joining Offa's Dyke path for the return. Knocked on two doors at the Observatory but got no reply despite two cars parked there.

Thought it polite to ask to visit being next to observatory building. Thanked for doing same, and told trig visitors often didn't have the courtesy. Sad. Panorama of Knighton.

Asked for permission at the observatory first. The pillar commands a wonderful lookout point over Knighton.

Unobscured view of Knighton from slightly downhill of the observatory

Arrived too late to visit the exhibitions, so had to make do with wandering around outside the Space Guard Centre. Its tucked away round the back of the main buildings. Nice views to the north and west.

No effort required to get to this trig. Just round the back of the Observatory. Wet and rainy day when I visited so not much for views.

Condition is good.. Very good! Brilliantly whitewashed and well looked after in a wee enclosure next to what was the Powys Observartory, and what is now Spaceguard, a Near Earth Object spotting facility. Knowing our luck, the next dinosaur killer will show up on one of the many cloudy nights around here. The observatory appeared open , and I was able to drive right up, park and nose about "the garden" and find the dazzling pillar. This is quite a high hill, and the views are very fine,although the observatory buildings obstruct the south. I suppose, with the big telescope on site you can see a bit further than from the average station. On Christmas Day 2004 I went up the High Vinnalls by moonlight.. The observatory was indulging in some light polution with a very big firework display.. Quite enjoyable.
