I’ve walked around the Wye Valley on only a few occasions. Each time, it had been under the leadership of another person and, more often than note, we’d explore Tintern and climb up to the Devil’s Pulpit.

Sugar Loaf. A mountain or hill? However you may regard it, this was one of the peaks of the Brecon Beacons that I’d been intending to conquer for a good couple of years.
I came across an eleven-mile route on the Walking Englishman’s website some time ago and that provided the impetus to get me going. There are so many ‘short’ walks available online… I always prefer to do something worthwhile, when bridge tolls and ninety-minute drives are required.
