From here the much bigger hills of Moel y Parc and Penycloddiau become visible to the south, setting the scene for the walk ahead. I scoot off-Path temporarily to have a look at the barrows on the hilltop, but they're over fences and not much more than low, grassy mounds, so I don't make too much effort and we're soon back on our way. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
