This short circular walk starts at the Welsh Venison Centre and takes us over Allt yr Esgair, an often-overlooked small peak west of Bwlch. We will discover an Iron Age fort, a Roman road, a 19th century folly, and hopefully have stunning views all round (weather permitting).  The climb is moderate, and will be taken at a gentle pace.
Tea/coffee and cakes will be available at the finish for a concessionary price.
