Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

This is a 7.5 mile circular walk.  The route initially climbs steadily from Goytre Wharf on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal to open mountain range and the ridge of Mynydd Carn Glochdy, which gives spectacular views to the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains, the Bristol Channel and beyond.  The route then weaves down through woodland, to emerge at The Goose, a celebrated local tavern with a tranquil beer garden and good views.  Continuing down quiet lanes, the route crosses the canal over a small stone bridge to emerge in the delightful village of Llanover, with its pretty, white-washed buildings, and into the grounds of Llanover Hall, once the residence of Lady Llanover, who is thought to have influenced the Welsh national costume we know today.  A return along the canal leads back to historic Goytre Wharf and refreshments at the cafe.

Dogs must be kept on leads.  If dry, good walking shoes or trainers can be worn; otherwise, a good pair of walking boots will be required.  There are toilets, a cafe, and a small exhibition at Goytre Wharf.

PLEASE NOTE, YOU MUST SIGN UP TO THIS WALK IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND, IN LINE WITH CURRENT COVID-19 RULES.
