A spot of luck having the afternoon of work which i am going to have some productive walking time.
Back in late January this year i went summit bagging to bag Black Mixen at 650m and then onto Great Rhos at 660m summit and the highest summit in the Radnor Forest Dome , which i bagged Black Mixen in some very poor weather conditions i sensibly aborted Great Rhos 1km from the summit due to poor weather and almost nil visibility, which even then i covered 20 miles.
So at last i bagged the summit of Rhos Fawr or translated meaning Great Moor of which its remote summit sits on a huge peat plateau.
I started this walk from the fishpools car-park near the village of Bleddfa on the A488, which from the carpark is a number of walking trails.
There is a small tower not far from the car park which at a glance looks unimportant but in reality it played a big part in the construction of the Elan valley aqueduct as its true role was used as a sighting tower for engineers to line the tunnel up with which was long before GPS mapping and lasers in civil engineering projects.
Most of the walk was through forest trails and the last part was on the open Plateau of Rhos Fawr which commends some fantastic views,including the Brecon Beacons and the Shropshire hills.
Just a word of caution if walking on the Radnor Forest, between Black Mixen and Rhos the is a deep valley, it is strictly out of bounds as home to a British Army firing range and a shoot club. when i was there the red flag was up but i would advice keep well away and vigilant of not straying onto the ranges.
