Penultimate pillar on sheet 125 Bala and Lake Vyrnwy. Bonus point for all the scrummy bilberries surrounding the trig :).

actually drove to within 20ft of this one.. wouldnt recommend it in a sports car mind.. trees have been felled in front of this forestry trig giving some impression of the superb view that was once had here.. trig cap filled with asphalt. otherwise in fine if unpainted condition.

Drove to pillar on dry and dusty roads which precipitated a washed car .. Pillar close to lay-by in small wooded patch No views to speak of

In conifer wood,asphalt plug. No views from the trig, but just off forestry track, where there are good views. Fairly easy to get to on tracks

This was another one that had been down for a visit for a while but not got around to it. I think there may be access for vehicles so as you can drive to,but decided I needed the exercise so cycled in from the NE,lanes give way to good forest tracks.There has been some clearing near the pillar which itself still stands surrounded by a few conifers. Thee are much harder forest ones to locate than this one,and it is easier than the map suggests.Pillar in good condition.the views are limited from the pillar itself,but good from back on the forrest roads.

Ah, ha! Another one of these Welsh trigs with the 5-digit numbers. This one has easy access off the road - in fact about 30 yards from a layby which is very convenient! It's all intact with the central plug and it looks as if the top has been repaired with a thin layer of concrete at some time which might explain the extra-deep lug-holes. There are some cracks across the top and a small chip out of the NW corner but nothing major. There is quite a lot of paint on the N and E faces. Good views to the south and south-west but otherwise, the forest blocks things out. The pillar is set in deep bracken/heather and you have to look carefully to find it!
