From Llandrinam car park. Fp via Troedyrniew. Totally overgrown with shoulder high bracken. Awful. Took wrong route on return and came through grounds of Broneirion. Remind me never to go walking with myself when Im navigating. Tea and barra brith at the cafe in Llandrinam to compensate for my disaster.Campbell Singer12/07/2024
Severn Way along lane from north then followed the ridge to a pleasant grassy top with views both sides.clivevilla24/07/2023
Parked off A470 in public car park in Llandinam (SO 02508 88348). Crossed the bridge over the R.Severn and took lane up to Broneirion. Worked my way up through the wood to joint the Severn Way south up the ridge. Continued south after the Way turns south-west up to a gate at SO 01576 87885 where tracks fork. Scaled the gate and headed up through sheep pasture to the summit. Continued to Rhos Fawr. Solo Nordic walk in fine but cold weather.Man of Kernow102/01/2017
Nice little top with lots of sheep :-)heavyhorses11/06/2013
Up narrow lane to Cefn farm to ask permission to park. Farmer said that another group had been here mentioning HuMPs, but he told them there was no hump, just a grassy mound! A well kept farm - all the gates worked. Through the yard across two fields to a bridle way on the ridge. Top at 10.10. No cairn. Hazy viewsarranc26/07/2012
Farmer at Cefn told me 'there was a chap here not long ago who measured the height, not sure why'. We know why don't we - wonder which tamperer it was. I used the Severn Way to get up and the blocked track down.Martin R27/08/2011
Parked to SW at end of road farm Cefn. No footpath signs or openings. Asked farmer - go through open farm gate and left between 2 barns - new on left. Then turn right. Grass to top.destaylor13/04/2011
