laughably attrotious weather. made a very short walk feel like a bit of a mission. flytipping at roadside, will never understand this. trig in good condition though as wet and miserable as me. no views.could barely see the masts from the trig.

Parked at access track to masts, on minor road to SE. Not sure where previous logger scrambled from, but we did short walk up to hill summit and trip. Pillar in good condition approx 50m E of comms compound, in fallow field. Cap missing, no plug; all sight holes closed, with front cement plug breaking up. Extensive 360deg views.

Good view but otherwise a bit of an unloved summit with the ugly masts, tatty barbed wire fences and rubbish at the nearest parking spot - a bit disappointing considering its historical significance as the site of the Great Rebecca Meeting!

Parked at the end of the track where there is enough room to pull in and not block the entrance. Easy walk up to the trig and Marilyn.

Cap missing with all sights sealed... a pink tint peeps out from below the pillars wind-beaten white surcoat. Nice view and I'm reliably informed that the mast carries a lot of the Emergency frequencies. :)

Mynydd Sylen ...not so barbed anymore. :)

You can get to this trig point without stepping over the barbed wire from the road at certain times of the year - but I must admit it was under the barbed wire I went. Fantastic views all round.

Parking on lane to SE. A short walk on public footpath towards masts then a hop over bard wire fence to trig.

Nightime visit when travelling. Barbed wire a pain, but its all because of some verminous little goml who does not like public footpaths. Good views of streetlights and lighthouses.
