From New Radnor on a reverse direction of the Nuttall 11.4 walk. Located on a saucer barrow at top of Bache Hill. Pillar has retaind the original top cap, deeply indented lettering; all sight holes open. A rain-sodden 360deg panorama with low thin cloud detracting from it. If anyone has lost a 2p piece, it's on this pillar!

Re visit to photograph. Have visited this point on many occasions but had no photos. Grey day but high cloud meant some views. The snowfall from earlier in the week had left some drifts up to 18"deep which for October weather is uite unusual! Pleasant circular walk from New Radnor taking in the trigpoint at Black Mixen and the distinctive Whimble.

The first of three trigs on this horseshoe walk of the Radnor Forrest mountains. This trig has the best views of the three visited today even though it’s the lowest. Parked in New Radnor, walked up the road, through the forest and then over sheep grazing fields to the trig. A concrete trig all intact.

Bache Hill is in all the lists except one as a 2000' hill. It only exceeds 2000' courtesy of a high tumulus(ie artificial). The pillar is on top of this mound. All three high summits of the central Radnor Forest carry trigs.

The tumulus on Bache Hill. Not the natural summit, thats a vague piece of heather nearby.

Radnor forest is perhaps the only place in Englnd & Wales where you can walk to three trigs above 2000' in height in a comfortable 1/2 day's walk.It's not the most dramatic of scenery but has it's own special charm and thankfully is not swarming with other walkers.Bache (or Badlands) Hill is the first trig you come to after leaving New Radnor & is accessed via a permissive footpath. It just qualifies as a mountain at 2001'.Plug with heavily indented lettering.
