Short walk from minor road through fern up onto hillside where this strikingly white painted trig came into view. Paint getting a little worn when viewed closely, but trig in good condition; original cap with deeply indented lettering; 1 sight hole open for drainage. Superb 360deg views, especially S to main Brecon peaks, but also W across Nant-Bran valley to Twyn Disgwylfa and Llanfihangel trig where we had been earlier in the day. Lovely sunny day - perfect lunch stop.

The pillar is highly visible and very accessible. I parked on the road to the east and just followed a series of tracks to the summit. Everything in good order and pillar still retains an original plug. Some lovely views on a glorious spring morning.
