That old favourite, inspiration of J R Tolkien’s The Lonely Mountain: the Sugar Loaf above Abergavenny. A gentle, simple walk on the whole with just a few long steep climbs but generally straight forward and easy on the feet with lots of soft springy grass to walk on. After 6 weeks being confined to the lowlands it was particularly inspiring to be able to stand at the trig point and take in the sweeping views.
Walking from Llanthony Priory, up to the Hatterall Ridge along the track known as the Rhiw Cwrw (Beer Track) an ancient track used by the monks of Llanthony Priory to transport casks of beer from Llanthony to Longtown on the other side of the Ridge. All I can say is they must have really liked their beer to do this. Rather them than me!
