Christmas Social

10 Dec 2018 | South Wales Group

No less than 28 people enjoyed a great afternoon at Pulse Bar in Cardiff on this year's Christmas social. The staff worked really hard to make our time there as good as possible (as well as being very easy on the eye!) and the food was tasty and bountiful. It was nice to see so many friends, some travelling some distance, and a good time was had by all.

This was a lovely 5 mile circular walk of around 300m ascent and descent, mainly through fields and woodland to the trig point on the iron age burial mound of Mynydd y Garth. Luckily, the weather was at its best on the day when we reached the summit and we enjoyed great views over the Taff valley, Cardiff, the Brecon Beacons, the Bristol Channel, and beyond. Thanks to Huw for leading another great walk.

Skenfrith - just on the border

3 Oct 2018 | South Wales Group

15 eager walkers made the most of the dry weather and reasonable warmth for a circular walk ro Skenfrith on the English/South Wales border. Having made our way across beautiful countryside to the wonderful Skenfirth Castle, and being photographed for the Telegraph newspaper en-route, the group enjoyed a few sharp inclines and wooded glades, completing the third part of the '3 Castles Walk'.

Jon and his pooch, Max, kept us informed as to all the places of note, and we enjoyed a picnic lunch in the castle ruins, the highlight of the walk....
