Parked right next to the water tower. Took the footpath past an awful lot of rubbish into field. Trig easily seen. Spider and faceplate missing.

Easy access along side of water tower compound and out into open field at rear of houses. Pillar has been recently lobotomized! Both FB and spider are gone but the wounds have been dressed with mortar. All sight holes closed.

Several days worth of snow lying all around made this one seem quite a lot more rural than it actually is.

Located from estate through hole in mast/reservior compound fence then out into field - pillar reasonable condition, for a rough looking area.

Visited whilst geocaching nearby. I walked up the hill from the nearby wood. Nice views but houses obscure view from one direction.

The pillar stands in a grass field next to the western Cardiff hilltop suburb of Pentrebane.The top surface of the pillar is a bit battered. It has an asphalt plug and FB 10658. The field was accessed from the housing estate near the water tower. From the trig there is a good view northwards to Garth Hill and other Glamorganshire hills. Nearby houses and trees prevent a view in other directions. The egg shaped Pentrebane water tower is on the edge of the field to the south.

The trig point is overlooked by a distinctive "golf ball" water tower (see image).

Grotty,horrible.Worried as left dog in car for the two minutes took to run there and back. Access from end of estate through gap by water tower. Not the prettiest area of Wales, but the problem is the people not the landscape........am sure the trees dont set themselves on fire and strew broken glass around their base! Miserable.saw several security firm vans and even the buses advertise the fact they have CCTV both inside and outside to encourage people to use public transport in safety! Personally a car with the doors locked and the first road out is preferable!Pillar itself surprisingly good shape for locale.

We parked to the south at the end of Ty-Bronna Close (not shown on the map) and walked up through the wood and across to the trig in this much walked area. Is the golf ball thing a mast or a water tower? Tarmac plug.

I parked off St Fagans Road and walked up through the woods into the field where the trig sits. Impressive views to the North. Accessed the old Fairwater trig site using a footpath to the south of the gold ball mast.
