Easy walk from the cattle grid to nw. Murmuration of starlings as I returned to the car. Spectacular.Campbell Singer22/03/2023
4/5 of Nant Bran Horseshoe. We came steeply off the bridleway west, down to the valley. There were many lambs and nearly as many gates, one of which was tied up by bailing twine. The beautiful sylvan valley of the Bran was followed to Llanfihangel and then the steep Sennybridge road out on to the common. A quick walk up a field using the gate close to the plantation. Stunning views of the Beacons.Rob Rees10/04/2021
