taken 6 years ago, near to Trevethin, Torfaen/Tor-Faen, Great Britain

Hillside path above Mamhilad
Hillside path above Mamhilad
Surfaced with densely packed stone hewed from the underlying bedrock. It has suffered some damage from motorbike scramblers and water in heavy rains but incorporates gullies and gutters to carry run-off away from the surfaced path. It has been put forward as a medieval packhorse route but also a Roman road. Apparently a Roman coin was found at Troed-y-rhiw Farm nearby.
