I evidenced multiple companies delivering unsafe gorge walking activities in the waterfalls area on multiple occasions and over multiple years with no authority or group taking notice or seeking improvement. Quite the contrary, the authorities closed ranks and attempted to damage my business for speaking out – that is the reward for whistle blowers.
I will continue to park on the roadside at Mynydd Illtyd common, a handful of times a year. My parking there does no damage to the environment whereas the farmers driving tractors and quads, the sheep and the horses, all of whom travel across the common and in wet conditions too, most certainly do.
The following article was first published in Wales Online – There are problems with the content of the article which clearly indicates the lack of vision being employed by the BBNP Members. And of course the five mile drive rule of thumb still applies, although we guess you could cycle there (for some reason there appears to be a 40 mile rule of thumb for cycling!).
So, until we get clear and sensible advice and until cafes and bars are ordered closed we’ll be delivering guided walks in the Great Outdoors every Saturday and Sunday and sometimes during the week too 🙂
Despite the early start, it was still dark when we gathered at the car park of the Brecon Beacons National Park visitor centre, we had a large group of keen walkers turn up for our megaliths and roman road and Iron Age solstice sunrise walk.
