A vision, two chapels, a gospel, a black hill and a cat’s back make for an interesting walk! Cross the lovely Olchon valley, up and over Offa’s Dyke and down to Vision Farm and the ancient hamlet of Capel-y-Ffin.  A steady climb up Nant Bwch to the northern edge of the Black Mountains, then traverse Twmpa, Gospel Pass and Hay Bluff.  Back into England, past Black Hill and finish with a stroll down the Cat’s Back ridge to the start.
