A circular walk from Pantygelli with the option of lunch at The Crown Inn. We ascend the Deri and walk under the shadow of Sugar Loaf before dropping down to Forest Coal Pit. A quiet road takes us past the chapel before we climb up Bryn Arw. This is a fine ridge, seldom visited, with fine views of Skirrid and across to Herefordshire. At the end of the ridge we descend steeply to Cwm Brynarw then follow field paths back to Pantygelli.
