13 July 24 - The Kymin, The Suck Stone & Biblins bridge

Today, 10 enthusiastic ramblers, including our welcome guest James from Clevedon Ramblers, embarked on a fantastic 10-mile circular walk led by Paddy, titled “The Kymin, The Suckstone & Biblins Bridge.” Starting from the Wyebridge Street car park next to Monmouth School for Boys. We began by heading east via the subway to access the historic Wye Bridge. This Grade I listed stone bridge in Hereford, constructed in 1490, replaced an earlier timber bridge dating back to the 12th century. Crossing the Wye, we made our way along the A4136 and soon picked up the Offa's Dyke Path.

15 Jun 24 - A walk through and around Glasfyndd Forest

Today, our intrepid group of ten met for a captivating walk through the mystical Glasfyndd Forest. Led by Andrew, who was right at home on his own turf. Andrew's cozy abode is just a stone's throw away from our starting point at The Dark Sky Lodge. Under uncertain skies that couldn't decide between raindrops and sunbeams, we stepped into the forest, heading southward toward the forest's edge and the majestic Twyn y Garn.

08 Jun 24 - Llangattog escarpment and lonely shepherd

It was a sort of Karate Kid walk for six lucky Merthyr Valley Ramblers today - coat on, coat off due to the occasional biting wind! Our 8 mile walk started with a walk from the lay-by down the road to the footpath. From there, we made our way to the raised bog at Waun Ddu where we continued past Craig y Cllau to our first cuppa below the escarpment.
