Description: This 10 mile walk starts at Pen-ffordd-goch pond (Keeper’s Pond) going via Foxhunters grave onto the summit of the Blorenge to take in the fabulous views of Abergavenny and the Usk valley. After visiting the Punchbowl (a lovely man-made lake) the track leads us to the old tram road, down the so-called ‘big drop’ to the Llanfoist boat house. Following the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal to Govilon, we then wind our way back up the side of Gilwern Hill to the Lamb and Fox Inn returning via moorland. (Please note there are no toilets on this walk.)
