Crug Hywel Camp


Crug Hywel Camp (Hillfort) by thesweetcheat The SE section of rampart, the fierce wind has scoured it free of snow. The Sugar Loaf and Blorenge can be seen beyond.

Ditto.... you might be interested to know, SC, that on a recent(ish) trip up Mynydd Pen-y-fal the Mam C noticed what she thought were Bronze Age cairns on the western ridge. Checking the map I said 'Yeah, right. Nothing doing.' Checking Coflein it appears she was right. Should've known.... GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Many thanks both. It wasn't too bad going, but the wind up on the fort was biting and put a stop to my delusions of including Pen Cerrig-calch itself.

I almost chose Sugar Loaf (sorry) as my destination, but went for Crug Hywel instead. I've yet to go up there actually, mainly due to the (I thought) lack of cairns. Mam C may have changed my opinion...
