ODL walk. Beacons Way day 7. Beacons Way re-routed so this Trig originally on the walk now ca.1km from it (revised route on lower boggy ground. Yuck!) Decided I needed to bag this being so close, so headed off the BW and grabbed it - very glad I did. Plug missing. Great views!

Stone built replacement pillar, the original lying a few metres away, toppled and in pieces. Cap missing, remains of cement plug in evidence; all 4 sight holes open. Panoramic 360deg views across the western end of the national park and north to lower-lying farmland. Good walking from several parking places on A4069 to NW.

Brightened up after showers on the way up, Mumbles islands clearly visible to the south. I remember the cairn here from 30 years ago as a well-built two stage affair - rather ruined now.

On 7-mile walk taking in the quarries at the top of the Black Mountain. This TP is constructed of local stone, and blends in well with the surrounding limestone boulder field. A good afternoon for walking (esp by the standards of summer 2011!) and extensive views to all points of the compass. Neither met nor saw any other person during the walk. Brilliant!

Visited this local pillar to introduce Sox to the Joys of Trigpointing. Her first trigpoint but by no means her last. She is our fourth trigpointing dog after Tara, Tansy & Clover. She enjoyed the walk but acted in a rather indifferent way towards the pillar.

Great drive south from Llangadog.Stopped at Herberts Quarry viewpoint, looked at the David Davies Memorial then struck up the hill from the car park. Splendid views of The Black Mountain, Bristol Channel,Carmarthen Bay & River Towy valley. Large cairn. Great weather. Jacob carried his toy machine gun up. Very quiet up here. My 8th trig in 7 days & easily the best. Great stuff

First of two T/Ps and four caches logged today. Overcast and misty so views not as good as they might have been. As the centre plug is missing, I'll follow my usual form and log this as 'slightly damaged'. An easy climb up from the carpark on the A4069.

Continuing the 2000ft revisit this is an easy stroll up actually the last summit south of the Cader range that I hadn't visited in January and the secondary "target" for the day. Parking on any of the ar parks off the main road.

What a spendid pillar. Built from local stone and in good condition. I sheltered behind the cairn and admired the view to the East over Carmarthen Fan and over to Pen-y-Fan. To the south, the Bristol Channel was glistening in the sunshine. A smashing summit and I had it all to myself!
