SATURDAY 23RD NOVEMBER 2019 – Andrew Lamb and Kate Barber and John and Jason

For a long time now we have wanted to get back in to the East of the Brecon Beacons National Park for some walking and David’s successful ‘Cat’s Back’ walk galvinated Andy into delivering a shorter but oft requested ramble around and over Sugarloaf, a hill near Abergavenny.

On a bright a crisp morning we met at the large car park on the side of the hill and over icy ground wandered around the hill. We had plenty of time and there were a few latecomers that needed to catch up so Andy played some games along the way.

By the time we hit the summit we were hungry and in need of lunch and while there Chloe was taught by Andy to balance another human, a youngster along with her family and dogs 🙂

And dogs! Nine on this walk!

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.

Join Us!
