Had a good look round, no sign of concrete unfortunately.

Tracks through the forest to the E of the trig site, approx SN 390 022, then old track trending E. Up onto bank above, very brambly, couldn't find the enigmatic concrete lump. Wandered around until the brambles got the better of us

Another visit and this time I did not find the concrete lump I found a few years ago.

Close to brambly summit in open pine. Couldn't spot Dustys concrete, presumably hidden in brambles. Explored vicinity as best I could. Noting Dustys historical notes, odd that pillar was destroyed 09/55 i.e. 25 years after forest planted, seems too soon for harvesting. From SE, forest road most of the way, nice early morning stroll; high tech parking machine not working

On a very blustery day I went with Eclectic Penguin to maintain one of his caches and Dusty to look for this.

All that we found was a piece of concrete 18 inches by 10 inches. This could be bit of the trigpoint as it seems a strange spot to find such material. Of course this could be debris from something else. Pembrey Country Park was bought by Llanelli Borough Council in 1980. From 1881 until 1965 the area had been involved in the manufacture of explosives. The forestry was planted from 1930 to protect the dune system.
