Same Walk Different Day with John Reeves
The contrast between two consecutive days could not have been more remarkable,the high winds and torrential rain of the Saturday, the scheduled walk day, were replaced by weak sunshine on Sunday morning as the Ramblers set out from Wolfs Castle on a ten mile circular walk.
Starting from Lower Danbarch, the route was north skirting the Western Cleddau to the bridge on the Wolfs Castle to Bill Cross road. From here the walkers took the footpath to Brynhyfryd Farm, this route is rarely used and not maintained at present by PCC so the ramblers had cleared the obstructions and way marked the route prior to the walk. From Brynhaford it was along the road to Sealyham Bridge.
At this point those who wished to take the shorter five mile walk back through Wolfs Castle left the main group, who continued across country to the road at Lower Hall. From here it was “mud free” road walking,past the Burial Chamber at Garn Turne Rocks, lunch was taken nearby in the sunshine.
After lunch it was through fields and tracks to Bill Cross. Unfortunately the route past Lammas House was badly flooded, almost knee deep as one walker discovered, careful negotiation along the edge of the path kept most walkers reasonably dry. The sun was still shining and the rest of the route via Little Treffgarne and Little Treffgare Rocks back to the start point passed off without any more problems.
The ground conditions were fairly good considering the recent bad weather and any obstructions caused by the storm could be easily by passed.
All the walkers agreed that the gamble on the weather had paid off and refreshments were taken at the in Wolf Inn.
