Former section of Hay to Glasbury road
This apparently nondescript view has historical interest for two reasons.
The road now leads to fields, but formerly was part of the B4350 from Hay-on-Wye. The road was straightened to follow a route a little to the south, bypassing this section.

Secondly, the road leads to the remains LinkExternal link of a railway bridge, part of the former Hereford, Hay and Brecon Railway which opened for traffic in 1864 and closed (as part of the nationalised British Railways) in 1962.
