AMAZING WATERFALL’S WALKS that we have listed through to the end of April 2020 – do go get booking as these tend to sell out…
Getting towards the end of the year and the last but one waterfalls walk and one surprisingly not well attended, not sure why, maybe everyone was out last minute shopping, but hey, that meant we had the waterfalls to ourselves 🙂
It was a challenge day, the Holy Loaf Challenge! After walking the Sugar Loaf and then The Skirrid as shorter walks over the past few weeks Andy had planned in a mega challenge day that was 12.5 miles long and included 1000metres of ascent… think of snowdon but double the distance…
It was a weekend in the far east of the Brecon Beacons National Park walking an easy afternoon and the following day a challenge event of distance and height gained…
But before I detail my top 12 I’d like to thank all who joined me on walks and camps and holidays and adventures in 2019. It certainly was a busy and eventful year and it wouldn’t have been anywhere near as wonderful without all of you lovely people 🙂 Thank you!
This is a fine spot for a wander close to the muddy banks of the estuary and through acres of reed beds.
You can tell by the pictures here that the weather was absolutely playing ball and this day was just about the very best conditions for walking in the waterfalls area, or any area for that matter, of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
We met at Pontneddfechan and followed the clockwise route around Andy’s Amazing Eight Waterfalls Walk which is in the south west of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
David was out on a very wet and miserable looking morning and so had some difficult navigation to, erm, navigate, to find the object of desire for this walk, the crashed WW2 Wellington Bomber in the West of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Yes, for any of our day walks you can bring a friend for FREE! if you have liked the Wales Outdoors page on fb and have joined the meetup group ‘Wales Outdoors’. This offer is valid for two weeks after joining the meetup group.
On a Saturday in November we gathered nearby Andy’s yacht at Penarth Marina and made our way over to the Customs House and onto the beach. From here we wandered to Penarth Pier and then up onto the cliff top and along to Lavernock Point.
Not many pics from this day but still, it’s a record of the group and the smiles 🙂 Melitsa delivered another of her popular walks around the Wye Valley and taking in the ox bow, Symonds Yat, Biblin’s bridge and King Arthurs Cave.
Kathryn was along for the session and quite sensibly made notes on her smartphone, which she then shared. The pics here are mostly hers and they are a great resource for the group. Thank you Kathryn!
We are back in the area this coming weekend for the Skirrid and then the Holy Loaf Challenge Walk. These are both very nearly full although there might be cancellations so do look out for last minute spots.
Andy picked up a couple of university students after his Saturday morning yoga session at Cardiff International Pool with the amazing Yoga With Tori and headed off to the Brecon Beacons for a Four Waterfall Walk.
It was a ‘Wonderful Wednesday’, the last of 2019, and Andy led the second part of his tour of the waterfalls, a four waterfalls walk visiting different waterfalls and paths than the first part of the tour a couple of weeks prior.
