Distance: Approx 10 miles
Time to walk: Approx 6.5 hours
Description: We start this walk by walking up along forestry tracks to the trig point on Crug Mawr which lies to the west of Partrishow, from where there is a superb 360 degree view of the Black Mountains. Following the Beacons Way we make our way down to Partrishow church with its famous frescoes, rood screen and ancient well. After dropping down into the Grwyne Fawr valley we then ascend the Gaer ridge before walking down into the Llanthony valley to visit the crooked church at Cwmyoy. Our return takes us past the Darren cliffs and back up onto the Gaer ridge at Dial Garreg before making our way back to the car park.
This is an energetic walk with good views and plenty of interesting old properties to see but no toilets on the route. Well behaved and fit dogs will be allowed on this walk at the walk leader’s discretion provided they are kept on a short lead.
Terrain: One steep rocky ascent and two other ascents (600m of climb in total), minor roads and several stiles. Could be muddy in places.
For your rucksack: Packed lunch, snacks, a drink and camera.
Price: £5 per ticket
