Meet at the Village Hall, at 1.45pm for the longer walk or 3pm for the less challenging walk.

Afternoon tea will be served in the hall at the end of the walks, between (about) 4.30pm and 5pm. The hall committee would appreciate small donations to cover this cost. Continue reading

Footpath Project Update

Walking bootsThe Footpath Project was launched in 2015 to maintain and improve the rights of way around the village for the benefit of residents and walkers, and to promote walking as a healthy and social activity in our area.  This is their latest report:

“The Footpath Group has been active again through 2019.  Our regular monthly maintenance group has been keeping paths accessible and in good order by cutting encroaching vegetation and we have been out with the Monmouthshire County Council Wardens to overhaul some of the paths between Pen y Fan and Bigsweir.  We installed twelve new waymarking posts to make the routes easier to follow, so please give them a try.  The more our footpaths are used, then the easier they will be for us to keep clear.
