Such a lovely, frosty and bright day we went off for a walk before house cleaning, fire making and odd jobs got in the way! We went up the hill towards Llansadwrn and turned off to Felindre where we had a long conversation with a householder who has just had their garden hedge laid….it all looked very neat and professionally completed. We continued onwards until we came to a friend’s house….they were busy too…watching some of their trees being pruned…as the branches were causing too many shadows across their newly installed solar panels. We took the name of the tree surgeons as we need a branch of our yew tree pruning….another job!! We followed the footpath through our friend’s garden which led us to the top of a local hill which had marvellous views over the countryside with Pen Y Fan in the far distance.
January 17 Walk round Llansadwrn January 17, 2012
We followed the footpath passing a line of wonderful mature oak trees and then descended a hill towards another friend’s farm….and meeting their alpacas, who are kept for their wool for spinning / weaving classes held in the village. What fun and excitement they were turning their best sides to be photographed and jumping , turning and following us down the hill towards the farmhouse.
After leaving the farm we continued on down the lane to the site of an old historic chapel- Libanus. The chapel is in the process of being carefully restored and looked after.
We followed the road back through Llansadwrn, past the church and the school and back down the hill until we reached home after a good two hour walk around the neighbourhood.
