Things move on – and thanks to George who continues to be adviser and chief consulting engineer to this website – we have a mechanism for you to respond to things you read here. Give it a go if you’d like to and here’s something for you to get your teeth into or your mind around.

Pictured below is Mynydd Mallaen which we visited in January. Only an hour away by car – to the north of Llandovery – but another world. Theoretically access is good with lots of public footpaths. In practice the landowners seem to have gone out of their way to make it awkward to find a way in. That said once you succeed and start to get to the higher and open ground you can go where you want – though you will need, of course, to keep your bearings and have a map to hand especially if it looks like getting misty or cloudy.

Massive views and panoramas of great beauty. Empty but for lots of sheep, a walker, and many ancient monument sites – like the two modestly proportioned but impressively located standing stones we included in our walk. This is maen bach pictured below and a detail of it in a second photo showing its remarkable geology. I will post a map too so you can see where to head for if you feel like a breath of very fresh air – though for some reason the OS is calling it Mallaen Mountain and denying its Welsh name.
