About the Event
Craig y Nos Drovers WalkStarts at the Geoterrace outside the cafe Craig-y-nos Country ParkDistance: 3.8mi/6.2kAscent: 116mWalking time: 90 minTerrain/ hazards: Mix of rough cobbled tracks ( can be muddy when wet) and quiet minor metaled road with very light traffic. One gate, no stiles.Features/talking points: The initially the Beacons Way is a classic example of a hollow way used by drovers. The name “Rhongyr” occurs three times on the route (Allt Rhongyr, Rhongyr Uchaf and Rhongyr Isaf) and means drove road end. At Pont Offeiriad and Pentwyn there are “corners that go straight on”. At Pentwyn there is a stand of Scots pines behind a wall – a classic example of a drovers’ signpost (usually three pines) – there are groups of pines along the way that might have also been droving related. Other features of droving will be discussed appropriate stopping points.
