Long Mynd in Shropshire – Sunday 16th Sept.
Please can we meet at 10.00am at the second car park (beyond the cafe) in the Carding Mill Valley (Grid Ref. 441948 OS Explorer 217). Once we are all met we will walk over the northern end of the Long Mynd to drop down via Darnford Brook to Ratlinghope. We will probably have lunch in the valley before calling in at the Horseshoe Inn, Bridges, for a drink. Refreshed, we will climb back up the Mynd to pick up the Shropshire Way before descending steeply into the Carding Mill Valley. We should be back at the car park somewhere between 4.00 and 5.00pm.
Please indicate your intention to join this walk by dropping me an email. Car sharing is recommended. You probably need to allow an hour and a half for the journey from Worcester.
Brecon Beacons Circuit – Saturday 29th Sept
This takes in Pen y Fan, Cribyn and Fan y Big.
Please, again, meet at 10.00am at the car park at grid ref. 125248 OS Explorer OL12
It is generally a steep ascent to the summit of Pen y Fan, taking approx. 90 minutes. We then follow the impressive ridge line to cribyn and Fan y Big before descending via Cefn Cyff. However, before we reach the end of the spur we veer off piste into Cwm Cynwyn, to skirt round the northern spurs back to the car park, again between 4.00 and 5.00pm. Before returning home we can pop into a pub on the outskirts of Brecon for a little refreshment.
Again, please indicate, via email, your availability. Car sharing is again recommended and please allow two hours from Worcester.
