Parked in wide entrance a short way E of entrance to Sweet Lamb estate. Circuit of Esgair y Maen and it's NW Top (visited both highpoints).PGCE29/09/2023
A partially successful walk in the Sweet Lamb Estate. Successfully traversed the eastern peaks of Y Foel, Esagair y Maesnant SE Top, Esagair y Maesnant NW Top, and Y Drum. But while attempting to cross to the western side, was politely but firmly told that no access was possible to any of the access land above from Sweet Lamb. So, I had to return to the A44 by the Wye Valley Walk bridleway, the only route open to the public. I will tackle Llechwedd Hirgoed via the public footpath from the A44 another day. The stats for this part of the walk were 14km with 400m ascent in 3h 20m.silveracorn_alan28/07/2022
