|6th top of 11 today, climbing Penmynydd, Bron Alar, Cefncwmwd, Bryn-teg and Bryn Carmel, continuing to Llanerchymedd. I parked up in the free public car park and walked up to take the overgrown fp, turning East to easily walk up to the Red-bricked structure and obvious top. I ventured inside rhen circled it before re-tracing my outward route...||Dazingdale||17/07/2019|
|Small layby for parking on the unclassified road near to the track leading to Tyddyn. Easy walk along PRoW, wall marked on OS map has long gone. Nice views.||DanMaisieBex||14/04/2019|

|From the Station Cafe car park in Llanerchymedd. Walked down to the crossroads, then east on the B5111 to the beginning of the overgrown RoW track used by others. Then north towards Llwydiarth Fawr, through a gateway and north-east off the RoW easily to the summit structure. Onwards to Bryn Carmel. Nordic walk. Solo.||marktrengove||24/06/2017|
|Track to the SW up on to this sunny grassymound which apparently had a quart on its west side that's been wholly filled on and landscaped. Strange small newish shell of a dwelling near summit on west side and octagonal air raid shelter type building with no roof on actual summit .||vegibagger||13/06/2017|
|Along (muddy) farm track ROW from Llanerchymedd. Interesting buildings on top||JamesD1972||17/02/2017|
|Roadside parking. Up RoW then over rough pasture to a roofless hexagonal brick-built probable WWII structure that looks remakable like an AA gun emplacement, but without the internal track for swivelling the gun is probably what housed the trig intersected station Llwydiarth tower. Pleasant lunch stop.||jonglew||18/09/2015|
|Walked up via public footpath on track from Llannerch-y-Medd with a former RAF wireless operator who was on site in 1953.
The location was a VHF Fixer station part of the RAF Western Sector built c.1951 and was one of similar fixed sites managed by RAF Longley Lane. The site contained a Octagonal wooden hut with a hand stearable radio mast with two radio receivers, R1392D protected by a close surrounding Octagonal blast protecting brick wall (still existing)and a rectangular brick hut with rainwater collection tank (unroofed) which was accessible but not in use by 1953. The site had 3 RAF wireless personnel (2 on duty) who were billited with a landlady in Llannerch-y-Medd. The site closed around 1956.
In 1953 there was a deep quarry feature between the mast hut and the rectangular hut but this has been filled in since.
Access via footpath was restricted. Stile in the wall is blocked by plant growth on downslope side and gate was tied up with twine to prevent casual gate ope||alterain||10/09/2015|
|From south. Track not overgrown on this visit and goes almost to octagonal shelter on top.||ijpowell||12/06/2015|

|Parking in Tudor Street Llanerchymedd SH 41991 84051. Walked east along road to public footpath/track (track very overgrown). Summit area technically private but no problems whatsoever. Recorded summit GR at base of red-bricked structure (LLwydiarth tower?)||David Gradwell||10/07/2010|
|While locuming in Caernarfon, just fancied having a look at the shelter.||Dugswell2||15/10/2000|
