Parked at cemetery entrance due E of the trig, over a field gate and short hop across a pasture. Pillar sits against stock fencing, original top cap is retained, deeply indented lettering; rear sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views.

Same route, three large horses in field but they didn't bother me.

Like others I parked by the entrance to the cemetery and then climbed over the gates into the horsey field for a quick bag.

Parked outside cemetery and climbed over gate into the wettest field in Wales occupied by uninterested horses and sheep. One sheep stood guard at the pillar but moved off on approach. Views limited in all directions due to low cloud and teeming rain.

a puzzle initially having been confused that there was a new road bypassing the town and getting disorientated as to which bit of the town roads I was on. Even got out the compass in the end!! Eventually an explore up a little cul-de-sac brought me a couple of gates up a grassy hill field and eventually there it was on top of a boulder wall. I'd almost given up on finding it.

Metal plug [indented letters]. Private [owner unknown]. Top of scruffy field [sheep, horses] adjacent to Penygroes cemetery. Accessed by climbing gate & ducking under single wire. Location totally underwhelming.

Could find no easy, public access to the field where the Trig was situated. It was clearly visible from the nearby cemetery. In the end I had to climb over the gate near the cemetery as indicated by previous visitors. I was observed by some curious horses on my way to the Trig, no doubt they were interested to know how I would cope with the electric fence about halfway up the hill! The fence was a single wire so I was able to duck under! The Trig was in vgc and appeared to be intact.

We parked to the east and entered the field by a gate just below the cemetery. Easy walk to trig across pasture. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Parked up in the estate due west of the trig and used the gate into the field at the end of the road onto open pasture an easy relief after the last couple. Trig condition unchanaged

Pillar is in good condition, the central plus is still present. Surrounded by feeding enclosures, came under close scrutiny be a few cows during the visit.
