Just to point out - I don't think this hill is called Pen Y Gwely, which is the large boggy area to the north west of it. I tend to call this one Pen Y Gwely Reservoir Hill. Camped on here about 12 years ago and got scared of UFOs.tumpawumpa01/09/2016
From the Rhiwlas road. Must have visited the resv a hundred tines but never been up the hill before today. Resv used to supply Oswestry and there was quite a stunk kicked up when this stopped. Views into Shrops good but otherwise restricted by trees.stig_nest17/04/2016
