New Walks for 2020
10 February 2020

Despite storm Ciara thats hitting the UK this weekend with its high winds and pouring rain, spring is just around the corner, although you wouldn't think it today !

However this is the beginning of the new walking season for this year and we’ll be keeping you posted of our regular Guided Walks programme on here and other social media sites. First up is a lovely walk in the waterfalls area of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It takes in several impressive falls culminating with the beautiful Sgwyd Y Eira falls. **Details are here. To book on these walks, see details below.**

Walk Title: Waterfalls Circular Start Point: Pontneddfechan When: 16/02/2020 at 09:30 Distance: 8 miles

Walk Description: This is a lovely walk taking in 3 beautiful river valleys, the Nedd Fechan, the Afon Mellte and the afon Hepste with their very impressive waterfalls, including Sgwyrd Y Eira or ‘falls of snow in English. We walk in many places along the river banks with their woodland and flora and fauna including dippers and otters. The walk is along paths but it can be muddy and slippery in places and there are a few steepish sections when we traverse the steep valleys. The estimated time of the walk including breaks is approx 5hrs. Dont forget to bring along food, drink and a camera ! We’ll meet in the usual place on the steps of the National Museum and drive to the start point.
