SO1962 : Harley Dingle Range and the Three Riggles

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from New Radnor, Powys, Great Britain

Harley Dingle Range and the Three Riggles
Harley Dingle Range and the Three Riggles
View west from the range perimeter across the steep valley to the superbly named Three Riggles running down the side of Great Rhos. The range is used for ammunition testing and the day I was there several loud bangs interrupted this really peaceful area. The site has caused much friction, with a number of locals battling the Countryside Council for Wales to make the land available for walkers. I think the countryside here is beautiful and it seems entirely wrong to use it in this way.
