2 New pages, Waun Rydd and the Wellington bomber crash site

We went for a long walk last weekend, a circular route that took us up Gwaun Cerrig Llwydion and Waun Rydd, and visited the crash site of a wellington bomber that came down in 1942.  The wreckage is still there; very atmospheric.  I’ve included the crash site pictures on the new Waun Rydd mountain page, here, and the pages for Gwaun cerrig Llwydion can be found here


The bluebells are out, and we found a lovely little wood with a thick carpet of them yesterday, Coed Cefn, just east of Crickhowell.  Go and visit them before they all go!

Forgotten relics is an excellent site that details the abandonded remnants of the dismantled british railway network; it’s clear and has a wealth of information on it and for a long time now has been my first port of call when looking for information about abandoned train tunnels.

I recently contacted the webmaster there to offer up some of my photos for use on the site, and to my delight he’s agreed and aims to feature a new gallery of my pictures each month.

The first gallery is there already, for Morlais tunnel, and look out for Torpantau tunnel later this month.

Rhymney tunnel explored!

Well the title’s a bit of a giveaway… check out the reoprt here!

Also, 3 new HDR images have been added to the report on Torpantau Tunnel.
