My 88th historic county top, and the final one with a pillar, although Suffolk used to have one apparently. Up and down from the car park. Busy spot.

My 200th log (although does include 1 duplicate and a few lighthouses) - the County Top of Pembrokeshire - Foel Cwmcerwyn. Shrouded in grey but lifting as the ever present wind picks up force. Ravens, buzzards and kites early on, visit to the Waldo Williams monument on the way back - grateful he fought for the place to be kept open

2nd of 4 marilyns on final day of our Pembrokeshire weekend. Easy walk from B4329 to bag this county top - 130m height gain over 3km. Good paths but heavy overnight rain rendered some a bit boggy. Cloud still down on hilltop so no views today. Pillar roughly cast with large cicular concrete base; cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open.

Foel Cwmcerwyn. Much longer slog than i expected, boggy in places, from the B4329 car park.Stunning views. Sadly a big dark cloud just sat above our time at the summit but then cleared once we were halfway back down. Typical. 536m, Prembrokeshire county top.

Walked from 'car park' at SN126307 up Craig Talfynydd, past WWII aircraft crash site, and onto path along spine of Preselis. East to TP Foel Drygarn, then retraced steps and followed spine until branching S to this TP. Dropped to Rosebush and followed minor road back to car. Great walk.

Wonderful views from up here today - I must have got carried away as I forgot to log the details for a week! The pillar is on a large round concrete base near to a small cairn of stones. The plug is missing and there is no paint. All sightholes are open. Considering its exposed location, there are one of two cracks in the surface but overall it has stood the test of time well. Great spot!
