Extension of Abercegir- Cefn Coch- Darowen- Fron Goch- Nantygaseg- Abercegir day walk, to bag Ffridd Pen-y-Graig, with Pete. We used marktrengoveís route- key is to keep to the ROW a bit further than one might expect, to SH 8423 0222 where gate gives barbed wire-free access. Returned to Darowen same way. Good parking space at Darowen, though itís main purpose must be for church services.pwheeler17/09/2018

Parked in Darowen, opposite the church, at SH 83027 01783. Took the lane east for several hundred metres, then stile over hedge at footpath sign. Followed the RoW north-east through sheep pastures, diverting south-east to reach the summit. No barbed wire by this route. Returned by my outward route. Walk continued to Fron Goch.
