Good parking at entrance to this heritage site, a disused copper mine, due W of the trig. Walked up and down over old spoil heap on a direct bearing to the windmill and trig. Pillar found in a sorry state: slightly leaning, but not by much; foundations becoming undermined; extensive horizontal cracks extending to 3 sides; graffiti etched into one side and lettering filled with a hard white substance "I LOVE KAREN" - well we probably all loved a Karen once, but not sure I'd proclaim it on a trig pillar! Cap missing, remains of an asphalt plug present; RHD side sight hole open. 360deg panorama. An interesting place, windmill is full of information of the extensive underground tunnels.

Some graffiti on the pillar. No plug. SSSI maintained & promoted as a public amenity by Amlwch Industrial Heritage Trust. Easy walk over from Penysarn along muddy public footpath, then ascent of waymarked tracks from east side to windmill & trig. Advise keeping to paths, as there is potential danger from old mine workings.

This pillar is in a truly spectacular location; situated by the base of a disused windmill, it is surrounded by an old copper mine, with multi-coloured rocks strewn around abyssally deep gashes in the hillside. A spectacular place to visit.
