There are six rivers which shape the geography of the Black Mountains – Mynwy (Monnow), Olchon, Honddu, Grwyne Fawr, Grwyne Fechan and Rhiangoll. Over two days we will explore the sources of them all. Day two we will explore the central and western ridges and search for the sources of the Grwyne Fawr, Grwyne Fechan and Rhiangoll Rivers.

Directions to Start
Allow 1 hour from CRiC.  From the front of CRiC take A40 towards Abergavenny and turn immediately left after the Fire Station up Greenhill Way. Then right at mini- roundabout. Follow the road for 3½ miles until, on a right hand bend, you come to a sign for Llanthony along a very narrow lane. Turn left here (effectively straight on!) and continue, following the signs. At first T junction turn right and at “major” intersection (five ways) take first exit (signposted Grwyne Fawr Reservoir 7 miles). Continue along this road for the 7 miles to the Blaen-y-cwm car park on your right.
