Towards the end of the sunny Easter Saturday walk from Llandegley over Great Rhos and Black Mixen. Bache Hill boasts probably the best of the many Bronze Age round barrows in these mountains. A hazy day for the views, but didn't see a soul up here. Dropped down to New Radnor for the bus back to Hereford.thesweetcheat20/04/2019
Parked in New Radnor, followed route clockwise around Danger Zone to take in Great Rhos, Black Mixen and Bache Hill. Blustery and clear.andrew.morel15/04/2019

Parked up in the village and walked up Whimble first, then Bach Hill, Black Mixen and Great Rhos. Down into Harley Dingle then footpaths back to the village. Mainly following the Nuttall walk.Neolith28/08/2017
Knowle Hill - Whimble - Bache Hill - Great Creigiau - Black Mixen - Great Rhos. Basically the Nuttalls route with occasional diversions to take in the three bonus summits. Mainly cloudy and breezy but dry.Herbert Anchovy29/07/2017
With Shaky & Smithy from New Radnor. Parked in the village & took the steep minor road NW up to the forest at the top, following the track & then a very overgrown path to E of Whimble rejoining the track. Followed the fence N & then climbed over the gate to follow the fencelines to the tumulus on Bache Hill. Returned to path & then slanted NW along the edge of Black Mixen detouring to take in the summit. A fine walk round head of the valley to Great Rhos on dryish ground & then followed track at edge of danger area all the way down to Harley Dingle & round side of the hill back to New Radnor. A couple showers but great views & a great walk out.NotReallyABagger23/07/2017
A fine circuit with 5 trigs, on a perfect sunny day. Beginning to be converted to TuMPing by Alex and co, and regaining proficiency in climbing barbed wire fences. From New Radnor, over the superb Whimble, Bache Hill, direct to Black Mixen (noooo - follow the track), edge of forest and peaty tracks to Great Rhos, then seduced away from the indistinct correct line to the forestry by Nuttall baggers track, but correct line regained off piste. Through forest, then up to Nyth Grug, Mynd, Black Brook track to A44, direttissima towards Molecatchers Wood, Castle Hill, and The Smatcher.Gill26/03/2017
