Walked from Bryn Dadlau to the NE easy walk through windfarm. Top of pillar badly damaged but still has spider and plug. Someone has dumped remains of ceramic hand basin nest to pillar. Good views in spite of turbines everywhere.

Up from the farm to the SW past the sheep and their new born lambs onto the ridge where about two thirds of the blades were rotating, one of them very squeaky. Trig has been abused over time which is a shame.

Pillar is fine ,just top and corners chipped away. Looks like someone has tried to liberate the top fixing.

from bryn dadlau where theres parking. walked in past an army of cloned whirlygigs.. but whilst they do detract from the view a little they also give scale to the horizon. the vista is huge! - trig is looking poorly spider has two legs partially exposed but plug still intact.

A wet and windy day but good views on the way back down to car park at SO 047836 as the bad weather cleared.

4th motorway Marylin from SW after parking at road junction a little before farm. Warm hazy sunshine with wind turbines turning well in low wind conditions.

Must be at least a hundred wind turbines up here, hence low score. Top of trig in a bad way.

Sited in the middle of what was(and may still be) the largest windfarm in Europe. Expansive 360 views including a snowy Cadair Idris. Walked a circular route from Bryn Dadlau to the NE.The pillar is badly damaged at the top with the spider nearly completely exposed.This was also my final pillar in a 50km radius from my home co ordinates.

This kind of view will become much more common if Wales continues to bear the brunt of the Windfarms proposed for the country.©Glaslyn

Now in a windfarm. Out chasing Marilyns.

Trig, cairn, turbine and ploughed field. A bit industrial nowadays.
