Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

Getting to Brecon

4th November 2006

There was a time when getting to Brecon from the north by public transport was not such an easy task. Apparently, connections were possible from Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil but would have added to the journey length. The ideal situation would have been the provision of sensibly-timed buses from Abergavenny train station to Brecon; these have in fact materialised in the form of the X43 Abergavenny-Brecon-Merthyr Tydfil-Cardiff service run by Sixty Sixty Coaches. Sadly, it does not run on Sundays but this is an improvement on what was previously available. Nevertheless, it has allowed me to travel from home, walk from Storey Arms over Pen y Fan to Brecon and return in the same day (not as long a day as you might think…). I’ll add more about the walk later.
