Brecon

For the last few years I have travelled to Brecon with Mr &Mrs Navigator, not only for a walk but also to help erect Mrs Navigators tent. She enjoys visiting the Brecon Jazz festival and glamping – Z beds and duvets are the order here.

At short notice Mr Navigator pulled out, as a serious man illness had laid him low (since diagnosed as novovirus) and I had to take over as a route finder. A quick research of the many guide books I own found a suitable walk starting and finishing  at Talybont on Usk.

Route.

My neighbour Paul had joined us and we set off to first walk along a section of the Bryn Oer Tramroad, once linking Tredegar and Talybont. There are good views of the eastern end of the Brecon Beacons and the Talybont Reservoir as we walked up the tramway. Almost opposite the dam we turned east before joining the tow path of the Monmouth and Brecon canal which led us back to Talybont.

From here we drove to Brecon and the Priory Mill Farm campsite to erect the tent which went well and reasonably quick.

Paul and I left Mrs Navigator to now fend for herself and we drove home.
