Billy Wynt is a regular cache hidden near the path to Hen Felin Wynt.
Hen Felin Wynt
On a high hill beside the town of Llantrisant can be seen a stone tower known locally as the “Billy Wynt”. It is the remains of a 13th Century windmill. The windmill is said to have been destroyed during a battle in the middle ages. By the early 19th Century the tower was in ruins and in 1893 it was restored as a folly. Today the path up to the Billy Wynt is a popular local walk and on a clear day the views from the top extend as far as the Brecon Beacons.
The closest car parking is at N51 32.458 W003 22.643 Ignore what looks like the obvious path on to the hill, as this is a private road to a house. Walk downhill, right along the front of the row of cottages known as Heol Y Graig and through the kissing gate on to the hillside path.
The path is fairly steep in places and not really suitable for toddlers and push chairs. There is another car park in the middle of the town. It’s less than half a mile from the nearer parking spot to the cache.
It’s well worth going the extra few yards to explore the Billy Wynt itself after you’ve found the cache.
