Builth Wells to Llandrindod Linear – 17 Nov 2018

Elevenses by the River Wye A large group of 17 walkers gathered at Llandrindod Wells Railway Station to catch the T4 bus down to the Groe in Builth Wells.  This number was almost unprecedented but possibly the thought of a 10.5 miles reasonably flat walk on the newly created Heart of Wales Line trail was a tempting prospect.

Autumn colours by the WyeFrom the Groe we walked the Wye Valley Walk along the riverside for several miles.  The Wye was looking good and the autumn colours were still in evidence.  Lots of fallen leaves crunching underfoot.

The weather, which had begun unpromisingly with mizzle, gradually improved so that by lunch time, taken at the old toll bridge at Brynwern, we had plenty of sunshine.

Our Brynwern Bridge over the Wyeroute after lunch took us into Newbridge on Wye on quiet lanes and onwards through farmland to Disserth where we crossed the River Ithon.  Across more fields back to Llandrindod Wells where we returned to our cars by way of Rock Park.  A very enjoyable walk, and it was good to see so many walkers out.
