Parked at gate. Unusual shape to the pillar when viewed from the FB side. Very limited views from the trig.

An enjoyable challenge to reach/find! Left lane near where the England/Wales crosses it. Headed North across two sheep occupied fields and stepped over the wire fence into the wood. The undergrowth manageable. Came across two unoccupied caravans from where a recently bulldozed logging track made walking easier. Turned off through partially felled area making for obvious higher ground and found the pillar surprisingly easily. The second pillar of the day with a large recess above the FB. The FB side does not initially taper toward the top as usual giving a very distorted aspect.

Track into wood does not exist. Pushed through trees and found pillar more easily than expected.

Visited on a long circular walk from Llangollen. Approached from the minor road to the west. After logging the pillar I then continued on directly east to Selattyn trig pillar.

We parked to the west on the first hedge line and I walked along the track that leads to the wood (Shane decided to sit this one out - too trespassy!). Once at the wood I found the pillar more by luck than judgement - without the aid of GPS or compass - although the trees aren't as dense as at Selattyn. Pillar has rebate above FB. Plug with indented lettering.
