Parked at the field gate to the south and dodged the sheep mess to reach this trig. Surrounded by nettles on one side and fencing the other making getting FB number difficult.

Pleasingly good views across to Ynys Enlli on an otherwise grey and cloudy afternoon.

Revisit. Staying in Borth so it would be rude not to. Great view north of the coast and mountains (we have same view, at a lower height, from our hol home). Worth a higher score if it was on a ROW

After walking the coast path from Aberystwyth to Borth we had a beer and then set off for this. Parked on a narrow winding road in a gateway and a short walk across the fields. Spectacular views on a glorious sunny day and we could see our caravan in the distance at Ynyslas.

Parked in gateway to south. Hopped over the gate and across a very sheepy field to reach the trig. Good views over Borth and beyond.

The pillar stands on a small plinth in the corner of a grass field on a hill to the north of Aberystwyth. It has FB S8514 and the spider lacks a cap or plug. The trig was reached by crossing the field to the west of the pillar from the gate in its south-west corner. The site has a fine view. It looks over Borth and its bog, across the Dyfi estuary to Aberdyfi with the mountains of Snowdonia rising up behind. Some peaks of the Llyn could be seen in the distance. A wide expanse of Cardigan Bay could be seen to the west and some distant hills above the bay were just visible in the far south. Some of the rolling, bulky Cambrian Mountains could be seen to the east.

Parked in field gate. Bit unremarkable this one. Lots of nettles around base. Good view over Borth but didnt hang about. The walk up to the Memorial in Borth itself is far more rewarding
