Met at Cwm Darran car park 10 15 am, we did not park in the car park i refused to pay £3 to park the car. Jamie, Andrew and myself parked in the village of Deri. We walked on to the Cwm Darran trail towards the lower car park walked up a steep incline past the farm through the ancient wood.
To the top of the Cefn Brithdir. The weather was good, colder than normal but it was dry, path was boggy in places. Past the Roman stone of Tegernacus, it is a replica stone the real one is in Cardiff Museum, strange why it is in the museum it should be where it belongs on top of Cefn Brtihdir. It reminded me of a line a in Dylan song “Infinity goes up on trial”
making our way across the River Darran and to the south side of Gelligaer Common.
We noticed storm clouds gathering.
Two teas one coffee came £2 40p Jamie paid.
