CERRIGLLWYDION, Cambrian Mountain's, Ceredigion 2010 - OTHER WELSH RUINS
Notes on CERRIGLLWYDION, Cambrian Mountain's, Ceredigion 2010

A long difficult walk. I parked the car at Teifi Pools and walked to Claerwen farm. My last visit, 20 years ago, I had found Claerwen farmhouse empty. Now inhabited. The I carried on to Nantybeddau farm house, also inhabited and then up over, cross country to the Cerrrigllwydion lakes and the small corrugated iron and stone cottage. A fishing retreat? Not ruined.

I followed the ancient Monk's Trod footpath (used by the Monks of Strata Florida in Pontrhydyfendigaid) back to Teifi Pools. It should have been a beautiful walk but it was difficult going. The path has been churned up by motorbikes and 4x4's so badly that although it had not rained much for the previous 6 weeks the track was almost impassable by foot. Long areas of up to 60 foot of track had become deep canals, unpassable for even the 4x4's which initally caused the damage. The areas around the track very damp and very boggy.
