This walk gives an opportunity to look towards some of Abergavenny's greatest walking challenges and views, albeit from the English side, but without quite so much direct effort required.
We will meet in and start from the car park of The Pandy Inn (on the edge of the Hereford to Abergavenny road A465). The walk starts in the pretty village of Pandy, providing an immediate but gradual ascent up through farmland and onto a narrow road, before then heading across further farmland whilst looking towards views of the iconic Skirrid. We then turn and head towards the quaint village of Llangattock Lingoed, but it's worth noting that the majority of this part of the walk will be via a narrow, but quiet road, for up to a mile.
There will be a lunch stop in the grounds of the village pub where we can eat our packed lunches on the picnic benches outside, with the option to grab a hot or cold drink from the pub to accompany your (packed) lunch.
From there we make our way back towards Pandy via the Offas Dyke path. This showcases some eclectic views whilst walking through mainly grassland fields. Please be aware there are a mix of sheep and horses throughout the farmland on the walk. If you do want to bring a dog please note there are also some styles on the walk, and a few which are slightly more challenging may require a 'tag team' effort to assist a dog getting over successfully.
Any dogs on the walk must be on leads as we are now well into the lambing season and horses may be roaming free in some fields. Finally we will drop back down into Pandy and finish back at The Pandy Inn for drinks and hopefully a post walk treat.
Please note I will not be at the initial earlier meet point in Pontcanna where any car shares should aim to leave at 9.10am latest to arrive in Pandy for the 10.30am start time.
