Up early on a Saturday to walk a short section of Glyndwrs way on a typical cold Autumn morning.
To do this section I walked cross county using lanes and waymarked rights of way for 6km and the plan was to avoid any roads a possible which I only used two lanes for a short distance and armed with the good old OS map to reference the waymarkers as some farmers have a tendency to remove the waymarkers which I find is no sense at all as you only go trudging over more ground and can be dangerous in poor visibility,
anyway back to my walk, so after 6k of cross county I found my Glyndwrs waymarker which was now pointing towards Meifod and back towards welshpool, my route now back was towards welshpool for the next 9k over fields, woods and up the big Hill which is Golfa hill, I have to admit Powys County Council have kept the route well maintained, including steps up a wood hill, new gates fitted and a new diverted section in place on on part, the last up hill section was across the golf course which is on common ground so watch out for flying golf balls if you walk this part.
Fine views from Golfa hill as always with the weather grey but dry, incidentally I walked this route also to try out some new waterproof socks which as I found out on the wet fields were........ useless, I am trying to use hiking shoes instead of walking boots due to persistent Plantar fascia.
overall a good 15k walk on Glyndwrs Way,i did not see anyone for the first three hours of the walk as in a romote place and up early walking which is a bonus to walk hours and no see anyone.
there are numerous books and information on Glyndwrs way on the internet
