8am 2 Boot: Neuadd Horseshoe (Joint Walk)

Event Date: Sun 29 October 2017
Event Time: 8am

9 miles

This is a classic mountain walk in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, taking in the summits of Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn (Fan y Big will be an optional extra). The walk includes some steep ascents and the paths are sometimes close to some steep drops. Be prepared for cold, windy weather – and potentially sunshine and showers! Warm hats, gloves and waterproofs are essential. Bring extra layers for when we stop. At this time of year it is worth putting a torch in your bag, just in case.

Update: Saturday 1630 – The forecast is looking good but it will feel cold (close to freezing) in the wind on the summits. See the Mountain Weather Information Service for details. Hats, gloves and waterproof jackets will give protection and are essential!

Remember that clocks go back one hour at 2am on 29th October.

Bring packed lunch, pub to finish.

Meet 8am at St Mary Redcliffe car park.

Alternative meet point: 9.30am at the Neuadd Forestry Commission car park at SO037170 – map here.

Please contact the walk leader if meeting there.

Walk leader: Graham H (07904453709)

This is a Joint Walk with Tiger Bay Ramblers, Cardiff. Please can someone from the Cardiff meeting point send a text to the walk leader to say how many are coming.

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with more than 400 members. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
