A few lumps of the pillar (or the base) are still incorporated into the shelter wall at the summit of this rather peaty hill - otherwise no sign of the trig found, without scratching around in the mud.

John Nuttall's drawing shows this to have been a concrete pillar. The Nuttalls give information about its demise on page 113 of their book. The "neat wall shelter" is welcome, but no compensation for the loss of the trig. Good easy walk along the North Berwyn Way, along clear paths & tracks, starting from Cynwyd & descending into Llidiart-y-Parc. Public. Access Land. Berwyn Mntns.

Not a lot more to add to previous notes! The bits of concrete are still there in the wall of the shelter. Not much of a view today but I guess it would be great when the weather was a bit clearer. Lots of pheasants and partridge about - one or two grouse also.

Revisited to see what I could find. Crumbly remains of concrete base just inside entrance to shelter cairn; a few smallish lumps of concrete - not quite missing but very nearly. Enjoyable scamper round on a Fri eve after work, en route to a weekend's Paddy Buckley Round support. Fine sunset.

A showery day and a late start meant this was the only trig with two other tops and a geocache. Five walks left for all the Welsh 2ks this year.

Visited whilst doing the walk to Cadair Bronwen described in the Nutall book. What look to be some bits of the old concrete trig are now in the northernmost wall of the smaller of the two shelters, something to look for whilst sheltering from the wind eating your bananna to celebrate your achievement of having got there. The cursed 4x4s have made it this far I am afraid, come on guys this is a delicate ecosystem!

Parked in the layby just past Llidiart-y-Parc towards Corwen on the A5. Walked back to Llidiart-y-Parc and took the quite steep path up through the Carrog plantation. Millions of grouse to keep you entertained. Once out of the trees, followed the path towards the disused quarry and then turned to ascend Moel Fferna. No sign of the Trig, just an open two-chambered cairn.

No trig now but I remember bits of it from a visit in the mid 90's one more bitten the dust. Is the north ascent any better than from Cynwyd?

Very hostile day with biting wind and blowing snow, Five minutes scrabbling around the cairn revealed no obvious remains

Above date is most recent of three visits, first on 16/09/1979. A 1986 visit revealed remains of trig point - a collection of concrete rubble around the centre mark with some of the wooden box still surviving.

This pillar was reported in pieces by Nutall and Nuttall in their book of the Welsh 2000' bumps. When we visited a few years on, there were no signs of it save the odd lump of concrete.

There were still remains of the trig at the time of our visit(bits of concrete with the holding down loops in).Good views towards the Berwyns.
