Parked in little car park with picnic tables and walked up onto the ridge. Had a look at the cairn and carried on to the trig that's hiding behind the covered reservoir. Good views over Oxwich Bay.

Gower AONB trig bagging day pillar 6/14. Parked at the small picnic area at Penmaen and followed the bridleway up. Mistakenly went into the reservoir compound as that's the highest point. The pillar is actually outside it at its NW corner and is sinking into the ground. Good distant view of the Exmoor hills.

East end of Devonian Breccia ridge. Walked up from lay-by adjacent to Farm & Campsite access and a PRoW. Go straight up drive into dilapidated nursery and turn R through gate which asks you to close it. Along a rough track to a point opposite a longish house and turn up a lateral ascent track uphill. Follow the track then R onto one that leads up to the fenced off engineering works as the pillar is adjacent, in a hollow, and it's quicker than blundering uphill directissima. Watch out for loose cattle and steers. Good views in all directions.

Parked at roadside car park just N of Penrice for a pleasant circular walk returning along coast path. Pillar has a few minor horizontal cracks running just below top surface. Original cap in place, raised lettering; 1 sight hole open; 2 OS plaques - English & Welsh. Extensive views N, S & W, including Lundy Island. E restricted by large covered reservoir on hill summit. Seems this pillar replaced a previous one despite this one's computing year being 1937 and no mention of an earlier pillar in OS database.

This pillar is highly visible and easily accessible. I parked on the road to the north of Nicholaston and just walked up the Open Access hillside to the pillar and adjacent reservoir. Pillar in good condition and retains its original plug. Super location for all round views. I wonder whether the pillar was placed in the depression or it has sunk over the passage of time.
