from Cardiff West service station slipped out of SE corner onto minor road and approached from N to a point on lane SW of location, where took track along hedge row to derelict caravan and into horse field containing the location. Standing at location with the roar of rush hour traffic a few yards away, I reflected on what a quiet, pleasant spot this must have been before the M4 and link road were constructed. If the trig did disappear in 1983 it would coincide with the period of construction of the link road which dramatically remodeled the immediate landscape. The field itself is also not as my map having additional ditches and hedges. Possibly pillar disappeared into one of the embanked stretches of the new road.

Dest 06/83 . Approached from SSW, lane jct. Ex location in pasture 20m from fence, a few interesting chunks of stone by fence and down embankment but could find no concrete. Also visited Windmill Hill buried block location 480m S which would fill in other half of view, hilltop itself rather flat

stone not concrete one of several large pieces found but no pillar remains found

Parked at the church in St Bride's-super-Ely (cut benchmark). RoW to the derelict windmill, then across 2 horse paddocks; one with hill ponies, the other with larger horses, they being more thorough-bred-looking and a little more feisty, but no problems. Pillar was located 20-25m into the field from the NE boundary. Walked the boundary looking for remains in the scrub between field and A4232 but nothing found. Assume Father Ted's thicket is possibly at NW end of the paddock, but didn't search there very hard.

It is NOT unusual for a TP to not be on the highest point. This grid reference appears to be on a nice spur to the North of the nearby hill.

Seems to me that the given grid reference is not at the top of the hill. Odd as the top of the hill has an old windmill and from there the views in all directions are much better.

Did not locate the concrete that Father Ted refers to ,but all logs seem to concur that it has gone and found nothing new.

I parked in the Services at Jctn 33 then got down onto the minor road via a farm track - this is not an easy task. Walked down the road under the M4 and A road and then up onto the embankment towards the west. Followed road south, walking behind crash barrier before going through small thicket and into sheepy field. No trig in field at the given grid reference but I did find a suspicious looking shaped piece of concrete just inside the thicket.
