Health and Safety - with a forecast of thunder and lightening in May this walk has moved.

Date - Saturday 28th July

Start time - 9.30 start from the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre

Difficulty - Moderate to hard

End time - 14.00 approx

Distance - 10 miles

Route -  Canal towards Newport golf course then ascent towards Twmbarlwm.  The trek is fairly steep in places and definately gets the heart rate going.  Walking along the ridge the 360 views are spectacular. Drop down into Blaen Bran community woodland and past the reservoir for a rest at the Queen Inn. Everyone will get a vehicle back from the centre.

Clothing - Sturdy walking shoes as uneven terrain and you will have to concentrate on your foot placement. Sticks are helpful for balance. There is no shade along the ridge so hats, sun cream / waterproofs, plenty of water and snacks. 

 For this walk you do need to be of a moderate fitness level, there are no get out stops along the way and stiles to climb. Wildlife and bird life is in abundance but also biting insects!!
