Offa's Dyke path crossing Penycloddiau hill fort
Looking back from the southern approach to Penycloddiau on Offa's Dyke path, the sky was darkened by a shower passing to my south and, luckily, missing my walk. This was clearly a day for plodding along well-trodden ways on lower hills since, over to the west, the higher mountains of Wales were well clagged in, and the bitter December wind even at this altitude suggested that an unpleasant time was to be had on the bigger peaks. It was unfortunate that there hadn't been a lot more rain, earlier, as this was supposed to be a kayaking weekend, but UK upland weather is nothing if not fickle.
