    long way towards securing the future

  • Moel Y Gaer Hillfort


    This needs to copy the title of the publication.


    Tuesday 20th September 10:00am start walking

    iAn Airspeed Oxford navigational training aircraft crashed on Moel-y-Gamelin in the Llantysilio hillside Sunday 20th February 1944; search party needed! Well not quite, but a walk to the site is planned accompanied by David Smith, one of our members who is an enthusiastic historian with particular interest in WW2. We’ll start at the Ponderosa Café on the top of Bwlch yr Oernant, (the Horseshoe Pass). There will be an option, if stamina permits, to extend the walk onto the slopes of Moel-y-Gaer, where a C47 Skytrain, also known as a DC3 or Dakota crashed. Moel-y-Gaer is, of course, a Hillfort, so worth a visit even if little remains of the 2 crashed aircraft.  To book contact   Neville Howell on nevjhow@gmail.com or phone 01244 535173, or 07850 921295

    An Outstanding Week in September!  

    September has always been an outstanding month in our countryside with harvests being brought safely home, trees and meadows taking on their autumnal colours, skies offering a full palette of hues, musky bonfires lingering in the evening air and a welcoming calmness for visitors.  

    September this year, however, promises to be even more outstanding!   

    The AONB Family has worked together to organise a week (and a bit) long programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by Britain’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). Starting on Saturday 17th September and continuing through to Sunday 25th September, the events can be found on www.landscapesforlifeevents.org.uk  As NAAONB’s Jill Smith, explains, “Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are some of the most beautiful, cherished and outstanding landscapes in the UK. They are vibrant and dynamic and offer a wealth of opportunities for people to enjoy our countryside.   

    Outstanding Week shows people how to get involved and get out into our AONBs’ outstanding landscapes to enjoy country shows, dark sky discovery nights, walking festivals, archaeology walks, wood fairs, foraging and local food festivals, wildlife walks, coastal and marine days, thatching courses, drystone walling competitions, charcoal making, bioblitz, inspiration through art and music and many, many other activities. Whether you are looking for an outstanding view, intending to reward yourself with a cream tea or trying to kick start a new health and wellbeing regime, you can’t fail to have a great time in one of our 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are Landscapes for Life in so many different ways”
