I’ve just spent the past few days in Pembrokeshire, towards the south-west of Wales. Last weekend, I crossed the Severn Bridge to attend a walk leader and navigation course in the Brecon Beacons.
View from Mynydd Llangorse.
This is something that Brunel Walking Group organise at this time every year (I was supposed to go in 2013 or 2014 but cancelled) and the course is led by Andy Cummings of Manzoku; an experienced mountain leader, hill walker and climber.
This was one of those occasions where I was looking to do a walk but not entirely certain of where to go and also reluctant to travel too far from home.
I decided upon a fifty-minute drive south to Combwich near Bridgwater. From there, I could revisit a section of coastal walking that I first completed with Anna in 2016. Then, there would be the eyesore.
In north-east Somerset, there’s a lesser-known sixteen-mile circular trail known as the Three Peaks Walk. It bears no relation to the national challenge and there is no time limit in which to walk the full distance.
I’d previously followed the way around Pensford, Dundry and the Chew Valley several times. But there were a few miles near Clutton that I’d never walked and that was my intention for this outing.
