Parked at end of lane near gate to mast. Then walked up the footpath to open access land. There is a marked footpath heading southwest towards to summit of Meol Y Parc. The trig is then visible a short distance away in the next field.

Found today on a long walk from Dre Goch Ganoch up to Moel-y-parc and back down. Didn't climb the fence to the trig point itself as I didn't feel comfortable doing so. Very happy to see it though! We had an amazing view on our walk too, over sea and land :)

Parked at start of transmitter track. Followed the track up to the transmitter complex. Walked round the back of the buildings and up the slope using the fence as a handrail. Hacked through the deep wet grass to the top corner of the field and through the gate. Fine view from the trig.

In a field on the right near the radio tower no clear access to trig needed to scale fence. Do so with respect for property and live stock. Great views from top Moel Famau in the distance.

Bit of a smelly one here today. The muck spreader had been out recently and the whole hilltop had been well and truly decorated, including right up one side of the pillar.

Cold and snowy today! However, great views from this pillar. It's in good condition in spite of a concrete plug replacement. All sightholes closed. Paint on SE/SW faces. Concrete base exposed about 3" allround. In sheep pasture with excellent views.

Parked on the road to Llangwyfan and walked along the Offas Dyke Path through the last of the snow to Moel y Parc. Cold wind but the views more than made up for it. See photos.

Access from the south from the Offas Dyke Path at SJ 12115 68987, path runs all the way up to the trig through two gates so no fences to climb. Path is hidden from nearby farm by hillside little danger of being seen. Good views and trig is in fine fettle.

Good condition, near very high mast. S above the number. Private So, it seems someone has stood it up again, since earlier reports show it toppled
