Another one of those trigs in the Black Mountains - my favourite walking area in the Brecons. High up on Offa's Dyke path overlooking the Vale of Ewyas to the east and God's country to the west. Trig was in good condition.

Third one for the day after Hatterrall Hill and Rhiw Arw, one more to go. Fine base allowed me to sit and have lunch here, blazing hot day, I know my legs and arms are going to be burnt after this. Local sheep are almost as pushy as those on Kinder.

Beligerent sheep kept pestering me for lunch

Really should count as a Herefordshire trig, or half of one. Absolutely no sign of a summit here, just endless ridge in each direction. Wopuld have been great views if the weather forecast had been as promised.

Many of the more boggy sections of path on this ridge have now been improved by the addition of large stone slabs. If the weather is good as it was today then this ridge is pleasant though I can imagine that in inclement weather its a bit of hike. A feature of the trigs on this ridge is that they are not on the highest points. The trig itself stands on a paved concrete base and the plug is missing.
