It followed what feels like months of torrential rain and very high winds and was the day prior to the peak of the bad weather, Storm Dennis, on the very next day. And so it was with some trepidation that Andy met a hardy group of walkers at Blaen Llia Car Park, newly refurbished for logging and open for walkers.
What a fine walk in horrendous weather with a full group of parents and kids – well done for getting out and about with us!
The waterfalls area of the Brecon Beacons National Park is a main tourism attraction for South Wales and rightly so. We deliver a 10 mile 8 waterfalls walk and then we split that into two walks and deliver on different days two 5 mile 4 waterfall walks. These photos are from the second of the four mile waterfall walks.
OMG! It was a winter wonderland! Well, not quite, as no snow, but the ice was thick on the ground and the skies were as blue as they could be!
While Andy was away in Germany’s Bavarian Alps – photos to follow – David picked up the baton and ran with our seasonal, midway between Christmas and New Years, Eight Waterfalls Walk, something we’ve delivered now for a fair few years. David had in support his brother, Steve and our regular assistant for the waterfalls Isobel.
After a fabulous morning solstice walk and tea and cake and the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre then a pub lunch in Brecon we headed to Pont ar Day Car Park and met up with a fine group of brave walkers from the Wales Outdoors meetup group.
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…
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…
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.
