Couldn’t see the flush bracket because it was surrounded by very overgrown vegetation

Caught the train from Pontypool to Fishguard and walked up the lane to the mast and around to the trig. Lovely journey and great views. Lots of vegetation around pillar.

Parked at entrance to comms compound on minor road to E. Over a field gate, then followed boundary of an arable field to trig. Pillar sits atop a raised field boundary between b/w stock fences, more than half of it engulfed in vegetative matter! Cleared most of that. Original top cap has been retained with indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open. Extensive views. Took a visit down into the nearby ROC bunker before returning to the road.

Parked by mast. Easy enough, just head up. Crop waist high so we followed tractor lines. Trig in hedge, didnt attempt to view FB. Cracking views across Fishguard and east to Mynnydd Preseli. 144m

I parked in the gateway to the east. The way I came back from the pillar is possibly the better way as there are no fences to climb only gateways to pass through. From SM 955 357 go along the southern edge of the hedge (with it on your right). In the corner through two gaps to get you on the northern side of the hedge/pillar. FB faces north-west. The pillar itself is still in good condition and retains an original metal indented lettered plug. Nice rural view point.

Felt like I'd run The Grand National with all the fence jumps needed to make this into a circular walk from Hamilton Backpackers in Fishguard. Decent coastal views, with the added plus of the Preseli Hills to the east.

East towards the Preseli Hills

We parked at the mast on the road to the east and walked around the edge of the arable field to the trig. There's an ROC bunker next to the trig with the hatch open - see Mellor TP4768. Plug with indented lettering.
