This was a very enjoyable 7.5 mile circular walk on and around this section of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.  After a steep climb from Goytre Wharf, we reached open mountain range and the ridge of Mynydd Carn Glochdy, which gave spectacular views to the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains, the Bristol Channel and beyond.  The route then weaved down through woodland to emerge at The Goose and Cuckoo Pub, a celebrated local tavern with a tranquil beer garden and good views.  Continuing down quiet lanes, the route crossed 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 led back to historic Goytre Wharf and refreshments at the cafe.  Thanks to Peter for leading the walk and for providing the group with interesting information along the route.
