Parked roadside grass verge on minor road to SSW. Short walk on wide grass track between bracken to top of hill. Pillar has some chipping and denting and a scrappy coat of white paint; also red dragon stencils on all 4 faces. Composite cap replaces a missing metal top cap; rear sight hole open. Nice 360deg panorama.

Parked at the cattle grid at the W side of the access land. Easy ascent up the grassy track through the bracken. Very misty today, spoiling the view.

A really nice spot. Trig is out in the open and easy to see with its white paint and red dragon!

Nice view.

Walked from the Mountain Centre on a windy and slightly drizzly day. Still a reasonable view from the trig and could just make out yesterdays walk on Fan Foel.

Painted white on a concrete plinth. Good condition. Lovely views. I've never seen so much sheep poo in my life - you literally could not put your foot down on clean grass. Plastic plug.

When I arrived at the Trig it was being painted by a lady (from Cardiff) who explained that this was her *adopted* Trig point and she paints and maintains it about once a year. As a walker she explained that whilst out walking in fog/mist etc they can be very useful and the easier they are to see ther better - can't argue with her either and I am going to look into adopting my own local trig point if this scheme is still available. I think she did a good job of painting it, don't you?

Trig Point White !!

The extra trip to Southampton meant I either hit 500 today or have the honour go to a nondescript trig in Stoke-on-Trent on Tuesday so this was it an easy walk from the road with great views of the whole Beacon range. Highly recommended easy walk with off road parking at the col. So glad I opted for this rather than one of the Eppynt trigs.

Logging this retrospectively from 2010. This is possibly my favourite trig of all. Although I've been here many times over the years, the last visit was in 2000, the year my dad died (he lived in Brecon). I really must get back soon. Glad to see from a later post that this trig gets painted regularly.
