Brechfa

Our walk today was centred on Brechfa.

Route

There was no steady walk in but first  through a ford and then a steep climb alongside Banc y Darren. Did we stay up high, of course not we descended down to the Afon Cothi.

Did we stay down, of course not we climbed again before a final long and windy descent again to the Afon Cothi.

We did have a bit of an adventure towards the end when the path we chose (i.e. The so called Navigator) led to a slash and burn episode, but we made it onto the correct path.

This is the way…

The views all day were lovely and topped by seeing a kingfisher land on a piling as we re-crossed the ford near to base.
