A short walk this morning on a very frosty sunny day saw me and Clive parking at the Blue Bell,Ffrith and doing a shortened route up to Pen-y-Llan-gwr.Leaving the pub car park we took a minor path across the dis-used railway line to reach a green lane that brought us out near the Cae-ap-Edward farm.
A short walk along this road and we then went left up a small track near to this shelter.
This track open's out into the field's that lead's to Pen-y-Llan-gwr.
The path now enter's the Nant y Ffrith Wood's.
A short walk through the wood and we soon saw the trig point on top of Pen-y-Llan-gwr.
Me at the trig point.
Leaving Pen-y-Llan-gwr we headed down through the tree's to visit the old stone bridge above the Afon Nant y Ffrith.
We then went to see where the Nant y Ffrith Hall use to stand and what's left of it's ornamental garden's.
We followed the path along side the river all the way back to Ffrith.I was dismayed to see it had deteriorated badly in the 12 month's since i last walked it,badly eroded by mountain bikes.We walked under the railway viaduct to arrive back at the pub car park.
The distance walked today was 4 miles with 1,000 feet of ascent.
