From Blaendyryn on RoW to Garreg Fawr hill, then over rough tussocky ground to the trig. Pillar vgc although has no top cap or plug; rear sight hole open. Sitting on a low plinth in the middle of no-where. Nice remote feel about this one. Misty panoramic views.

Parked at the end lane by Cerrigeithon Farm. Saw farmer and as long as the lane wasn't blocked he was happy and dogs on lead. Lovely walk up with stunning views all around

Walked from Cefn Bola-Maen, lovely walk on soft grass with wonderful views of Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. Pillar in good condition with slight cracking on a big plinth, with metal plug.

The pillar if highly visible and easily accessible from tracks and footpaths. I came on to this one from Cefn Bola-Maen and what a lovely walk it was too. Everything in good order. Lovely remote area with some wonderful views.

large plinth in open moorland a fair distance from any road. Access from South is quite good unrutted bridleway ideal for a mountain bike but not when the wind is in your face as mucha s today :-)
