Heol Senni and Surrounding Hills

"Where are we going tomorrow?" Well the answer was Heol Senni, a small hamlet in the Senni Valley south of Sennybridge.

We parked in the car park of the village hall, hopefully with no irate committee member meeting us on our return.


We walked up the minor road slowly gaining height as the road increased in steepness.

Three chaps on cycles came past in what I assume was granny gear as we were having a coffee break.

We met up again shortly after the zig zag where they were having a well deserved break. We left the road here and struck off below Fan Nedd following a wall to Bwlch y Duwynt where a lunch stop was taken.

The route continued following the wall climbing steadily to the trig point at 603 metres - this ridge is not named. This handy wall was followed back downhill to another minor road to Heol Senni.

We had views through the day of Fan Frynych,Fan Nedd, Fan Llia, Fan Gihirych, and in the distance Pen Y Fan and Corn Ddu.

  1. Just caught up with your blog again. I hope other viewers "click to enlarge" when looking at your photos - it is well worthwhile.
