Shooting is an activity that can divide opinions, but has been, and continues to be, an intrinsic activity of the UK countryside. This walk and talk with an expert (Twitter.com/blackgull) will explore some of the issues around red grouse shooting in the Black Mountains and elsewhere. Find out more about this complex issue, share your thoughts and note, not all this walk will be on paths - expect a bit of cross country yomping and robust conversations!

Directions to start
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 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 second exit (signposted Llanthony). At next t junction turn left. The Queen’s Head pub is on your right after 300 yards and the car park just after it on the left.
