Down off Medart then steeply up here. Pillar has the remains of an asphalt top plug; all sight holes open. No views due to morning hill fog.

My first 'day out' since moving back to Cardiff so nothing too ambitious today, just this trig and some geocaches. What a lovely day to be out. I read that Cwmcarn was closed as infected larch are being felled but there is a car park just to the east of the fort, the only thing is its up a long narrow road. Luckily I didn't meet anything coming the other way. The trig is a nice walk from the car park and just past the fort.

Very popular area with scramblers and local yoof,both of which left me nervous enough not to leave my car unattended on my first two attempts at this! The walk itself is straightforward, if you dont fall on broken glass, get run over ,have your car broken in to,get verbally abused ....the list is endless.come here on a sunny Saturday and enjoy all that S Wales has to offer ! Pillar is located 100m SW of high point.One point of note,if aproaching from the West and using Sat Nav it will send you up an impassable lane from Penrhiw,it is steep narrow and awkward to reverse down once you realise! There is a notice at the North end advising you to ignore Sat Nav systems but nothing at the South side which seems pointless really as once you have made it there you will retrace your steps probably.

The views are great from the pillar looking over Newport and the Severn. Its a very popular spot especially today as it was nice and a bank holiday. The trig point on Machen is visable from here also.

Even the experts can't agree !!! The hill fort may be Bronze Age or may be Iron Age. The mound at one end may be a Roman signal platform or may be 12th Century Norman or may be 13th Century Welsh.
