Footpath above Pwll Du quarry
Footpath above Pwll Du quarry
This path crosses rough grazing above the abandoned limestone quarry. The north-western flanks of Blorenge are seen in the middle distance and Ysgyryd /Skirrid Fawr in the far distance. The path follows what was probably one of Thomas Hill's early tramways (c 1820) linking Pwll Du quarries and the Gilwern Hill quarries round the head of Cwm Llanwenarth to Garn Ddyrys and eventually Llanfoist Wharf on the canal below.
