I Decided before lunch to visit this trigpoint, as I'd tried and failed to find it previously. Just before I set off it started pouring with rain, but I decided to do it anyway. I clambered into my waterproof gear and set off for Trellech on my bike. At Broad Meend, it stopped raining and the sun came out. Great! As I cycled up Far Hill, it looked fine, so I took my waterproofs off and started searching for the pillar. I overshot it at first, but then my GPS pointed me in the right direction. Headed across a field full of hay bales and spotted the Trigpoint in a field full of livestock. VICTORY! Logged the number on the Flush Bracket and also took coordinates for a possible future geocache. When I got back to the road, I saw rain coming in from the West and so cycled as fast as I could back down Far Hill and back home. (The computer on my bike recorded it as 27.3mph). Got back just in time as it then started pouring with rain again. Conclusion - Great British Weather: When you want it to rain it doesn't and when you don't it does! Thanks for a great bike ride!

The pillar stands close to a stile on the side of a field grazed by sheep on a hill near the edge of the Wye Valley AONB to the south west of Monmouth. It has a metal cap with deep letters and FB S6969. Its foundations are exposed by between six and eight inches. I parked on the grass verge of the minor road to the north and approached across the unoccupied field to the west of the trig. The approach has a fantastic view to the west across lower rolling countryside to the higher mountains on the edge of the Brecon Beacons NP. From the trig this view is partially blocked by the trees and bushes of the field boundary. The tops of the wooded hills beyond Trellech can be seen to the east. Large scale maps label the small fenced area as a covered reservoir.

Verge nice and dry roday so parking no problem. Eventually found the gate people talked about and around field perimeter and over the sort of stile right by the trig. There was a bull staring at me in the field as well as all the sheep. He kept an eye on me while I took my FB photo. There is a strange barbed wire fenced compound between the two fields near the lane. Could not work out what it was.

Parked on verge in lane, very narrow in places.Easy over gate,slightly in view.Bit of a dull spot but views of Brecon Beacons from elsewhere in the field were stunning.Give it a 6 if it were on a ROW.Lovely weather.My 60th pillar

Lovely views from here across to the Black Mountains and The Sugar Loaf. Hopped over gate to the NW and walked through the sheep field.

The sheep were going nuts as we crossed the field, but we saw nobody. Sun setting behind the black mountains. Bob was very tempted to round up the sheep.
Bob stuck on the wrong side of the fence There's a stile by the trig, so don't worry about getting the right field.©SidAndBob

Parked on the lane and approached through gate to the north-west. Buzzards and ravens doing their courtship flights overhead. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Scamper across field from lane to north to access pillar. Panoramic views to north and west, including Black Mountains. Base is very eroded.
