From SO 152 765. Also popped over to Newhouse Hill as the surveyed 25cm difference is not enough to allow me to ignore it.summitsup26/03/2017
A perfect sunny day in excellent company (Steve and Alex). Parked at Ty'n-y-Rhos, bridleway to Rhydhir, then direct to Pool Hill (friendly farmer). Beacon Hill, Stanky Hill, Cefn Pawl, then down to Llanrhys. Short road bash then Warren Hill and Gors Lydan. Short heather bash to track and road, then via Newhouse Farm to Tylcau Hill. 21 km, 840 m and wonderfully easy going makes an easily do-able roundGill25/03/2017
