Full ascent from sea level after having come up from the Wales Coast Path near Undy. Did my best to remove a few of the branches piled up against the pillar. Happened to be my 750th pillar log though I didn't add it up until after I'd just come off Golden Hill.

A grovelling long steep climb from an al fresco lunch stop at Llantrisant in the Usk valley. Most of the surrounding trees have been felled once again opening up views across Severn estuary, though grey and blue today. A large pile of brash prevented reaching the FB.

In pleasant woodland, track on approach churned up as work was ongoing on the telecom mast. It looks like a temporary mast is being installed whilst the main mast is upgraded. Pillar is complete with Grenade and dog grafitti common in this area.

The pillar stands close to a path on a wooded hill to the northeast of Newport. The trig lacks a cap or plug and has FB S/3324. The site was visited during a pleasant walk through the woods from Cadira Beeches in the east. It is possible to park much closer to the pillar if you wish. The surrounding woodland prevents any view from the trig. A couple of times during my walk the trees thinned out a little to allow a restricted view down to the Severn Estuary and across to Portishead and some hills beyond.

Tried appraoching it from the south which is not recommended as the track ran through a thicket. Best way is to leave minor road at ST414945 and walk SW on good track. Take second track left after passing mobile phone mast and its just a few yards. Unfortunately I visited on a extremely dull day.

The forest around here seems to provide entertainment for everyone – mountain bikers, walkers, 4x4 ecology destructors, car thieves, and even trig pointers. There must have been a view from here when the trig was built but not now! Plus removed but interestingly the nuts are still in place!

A quick visit after an orienteering event on the Caerwent Training Area. On my first visit there was an umbrella sticking out of the hole where the plug should have been. As with most South Wales marilyns, the visit was enlivened by the presense of burnt out cars.
