Found amidst the undergrowth and shrubs whilst caching nearby/
2013-02-09 07:30 - TP3331 (Garway Hill)
Found whilst caching nearby. Damp and misty today so there was no view, which was a shame.
2013-02-01 15:45 - TP5789 (Sailors Folly)
Trig is on private land with no public right of access but appears to be in good condition.

Tigpoint is buried within the sea wall, with just the upper two inches being visible.
2012-07-15 14:05 - TP4604 (Maes-Gwyn)
The trees are now 10 feet tall, closely spaced and impenetrable without a 'lot' of effort and determination. It may be a few years before this one is easily doable once again...
2012-07-10 07:00 - TP3447 (Great Beech)
Found whilst caching nearby. Surrounded by a sea of nettles and the trees obscure what would otherwise be an exquisite view.
2012-05-21 08:15 - TP3430 (Graig Serrerthin)

Found whilst caching nearby. A shame the weather obscured the view!
2012-04-13 10:16 - TP3314 (Garn Fawr)
Found whilst caching nearby - wished I'd noticed the other trig a few hundred metres away in the adjacent woods!
2012-03-23 16:15 - TP3966 (Holcomb Nap)
Found whilst (failing miserably) at looking for the nearby geocache...
2012-02-29 17:00 - TP2586 (Cribarth)

2012-02-29 14:00 - TP3106 (Fan Gihirych)

2012-01-30 14:12 - TP1069 (Barton End)
Found whilst caching nearby. Bit of a bugger to get to as it is buried in the hedgerow!
2011-08-15 11:58 - TP5382 (Pen-Llun-Y-Gwr)
Found whilst doing the adjacent geocache. Trig in good condition and views excellent.
2011-08-14 08:57 - TP3359 (Gilwern Hill)
Some damage to body of trig, plug missing. Found whilst visiting the nearby geocache. Fantastic location.
2011-07-22 15:06 - TP0807 (Aldbourne Gorse)
Not visible from the path, the trig point has grown into the hedge bounding the field. A nice diversion whilst caching nearby.
2011-07-15 15:30 - TP5034 (Mynydd Portreff)
Nice spot for a Trig. Found whilst caching.
2011-07-03 14:00 - TP6568 (Trecastle)

2011-04-17 15:03 - TP0543 (Wallingford)
Cool - My first FBM.
2011-04-17 14:43 - TP3516 (Grims Ditch)
Nice to see a bit of state-sponsored vandalism of an ancient monument! The cap from the spider is missing, sadly.
2011-04-09 14:01 - TP6300 (Tair Croes)
Found whilst doing the (very!) close geocache.
2011-03-25 14:15 - TP2502 (Craig Rhiw Ddu)
A nice spot to sit in the sun and have a picnic whilst in the area doing some caching.
2011-02-28 13:00 - TP2081 (Cefn Mawr)
Spectacular scenery with the nearby windfarm reaching for the stars. Found whilst doing the nearby cache.
2011-02-28 12:13 - TP4876 (Moel-Yr-Hyrddod)
Nice, hard to reach trig. Found whilst doing the nearby cache.
2011-02-28 11:00 - TP0732 (Llangeinor)
Not so much damaged as blown up! Found whilst doing a nearby geocache. Flush bracket is missing, as is the spider...
2011-02-28 08:40 - TP5656 (Rhondda Golf Course)
Found whilst visiting a newby geocache. Fantastic spot for a golf course.
2011-02-19 14:30 - TP2317 (Cockshoot Wood)
FOund whilst geocaching nearby. The top surface is badly damaged, exposing the spider and one of the upright edges is chipped as if someone has backed into the trig point with a car. Not the most inspiring of locations sadly.
2011-02-14 10:23 - TP6555 (Town Hill)
Excellent views. FOund whilst doing the nearby geocache.
2011-02-04 16:14 - TP5648 (Rhiw Arw)
Very windy and hard to stand upright. Trigpoint is eroding out of the ground and will presumably topple in a few years time. Plug is missing but otherwise OK.
2011-02-04 12:08 - TP0975 (Bal Mawr)
Found whilst geocaching along the ridge. Unusual stone column. A very windy day, so the photos are a bit blurry!
2010-12-30 12:30 - TP3324 (Garth)
Significant (patched) crack around three sides of the pillar.
2010-12-16 14:22 - TP3104 (Fan Fawr)
2010-12-12 11:21 - TP5017 (Mynydd Garn Wen)

2010-10-30 17:00 - TP3560 (Hafod)
Didn't get too close (the tripoint is on private land with no right of access) but the condition appears good. Unlike theb last (grumpy) finder, I had a lovely walk to and from the trigpoint with lovely views and good weather.
2010-10-24 16:15 - TP5006 (Mynydd Carn-Y-Cefn)
Flush bracket has been damaged making the numbers hard to read.

No sign of the pillar or its foundations - the field has been ploughed. Fantastic views of the gwent levels.
