From SO193592. Over the A44, down the track and right up the diagonal track before heading directly across pasture to summit. 2.5 miles 45 minutes.clivevilla05/03/2019
Burl Hill then Castle Hill from P @ SO193592.summitsup17/06/2018
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
