I had a couple of hours spare on a trip to Hereford,so I decided to seek out the Beacon.
I found Kington easily and then tried to find it using my Iphone to find it.
I pulled in to park up the car to try again,and the I just looked forward and in a opening in the trees in front of me, I saw it high on the mountain.A quick double check with some photos from their website and I was off.I new there was a golf course near it, so following the signs I proceeded to climb a steep,narrow road until I reach the golf coarse car park.
Parked up and there it was.
To think of all the great music that was made there,and the people who visited up that road.
here is a link to some photos I took:

Thanks for that! I was there on holiday back in 2000, but I couldn't find it ( but we were in a bit of a hurry). I did photograph the Hergest Hill though.
