Walked past the trigpoint while walking the Wales Coast Path, which for some reason is on top of a hill at this point! After 16 miles in a day I honestly couldn't be bothered to go and inspect the thing closely.

Circular walk from Ferryside and returning via Llansaint and the trig point. Small diversion across field to path from SSE. Grass recently cut and cleared so easy access

Pillar had been plastered by muck-spreading operation but, otherwise was in good condition. A short diversion off the Wales Coast Path. Good views along the S Wales coast and across the Tawe Estuary

A nice bit of exercise to get to this one through the grass. Dogs had to bound through it which was very funny.

Drove up after visiting St.Isfael church. Parked by the farm where the farmer kindly pointed us in the right direction. Nice pillar with great views over Carmarthen Bay. Sunny & warm. Lovely!

Easy parking at Pengay farm. The footpath is now a tractor track past the new house. Trig easily accessible in field which is now sheep pasture. Plug with raised lettering.
