I saw this one pop is as a YOSM geocache today and remembered that I had not yet visited it even though it is fairly local to me now I have moved to Cardiff. I worked it into a nice afternoons trigpointing. A nicely presented roadside trigpoint.

The pillar sits inside a brambly roadside hedge on the summit of a low hill to the south of Bridgend. It has FB S2300 and the spider is plugged by a metal cap with shallow lettering. Looking over the hedge rolling farmland of South Glamorgan could be seen with the faint outline of the hills of Exmoor on the distant horizon. A nearby gateway on the opposite side of the road allows a view over Bridgend to the mountains of Mid Glamorgan.
