Garn Goch

Another walk without "The Navigator", although the walk decided on was one previously led by him back in December 2012.

Paul had expressed a wish to visit the Iron Age hill fort at Garn Goch and looking at my archive I found a previous walk in the area and off we set.


We parked near the new bridge over the Afon Sawdde and walked through Felindre and along footpaths and bridleways which led us to Bethlehem village.

Cobbled farmyard

Red car graveyard

A nice renovation

From here we followed the Beacons Way which led us to Garn Goch. Just up from the parking area is memorial stone to Gwynfor Evans, From there we walked on to look at Y Garn Fach and Y Garn Fawr.

Memorial Stone

This whole hill fort covers a large area and must have taken a huge human effort to build the defensive walls. Lunch was taken here before walking down to the lane and paths which led to the path below Trichrug which gave good level walking and eventually back to Felindre via narrow lanes.
