Nine of us assembled at the station car park in Knighton. It was drizzling and damp, but we set off with optimism for this 8 mile jaunt which was led by Val, who seems to have contrived to do multiple walks in a short space of time. For new readers it ought to be explained that this is known locally as the Clungunford Factor (Clungunford Factor def. a method of confusing anyone not living in Clungunford as to what’s going on
We walked through the town to the main road via the community centre and sports fields, where we turned left and headed down to Llanshay Lane where after a short distance we entered the footpath and negotiated an excitable herd of cattle! (Ros would have so loved this!)
We continued to follow the pathway, occasionally having to refer to the gps when the bracken threatened to send us astray, and eventually stopped for a coffee break. It was still drizzling on and off, but we settled down for a quick break, after which we continued heading vaguely in the right direction.
