The upper Cothi valley is a beautiful area for walking, with a great variety of scenery - moorland, mixed woodlands and meadows. Sadly, today’s unexpected wet and misty weather didn’t give the 20 of us the extensive views we’d hoped for. But we are ramblers after all, and with our waterproofs and extra layers we can cope with a bit of Welsh summer rain!
Beryl’s recce with Hugh had led her to change the planned route so we would avoid a nasty bog, river and fence crossing. The new route was adventurous enough - with a steep hill, a couple of tricky bogs and a barbed wire fence to cross. With laughter and good company we enjoyed the exercise, though decidedly grateful to reach the cars by the end.
Many thanks to Beryl and the team for leading and supporting this 9 mile walk, and thanks to Alcwyn for the photo.
