Foel Fenlli - Marilyn Number 969

About half a kilometre to the south east of the Pay & Display car park at Bwlch Penbarras lies the hill fort of Foel Fenlli, site of a 2000 year old village. M2 romped up the direct route and was long gone by the time I arrived, some 15 minutes after we'd both set off. Hence the 'arms length' photo, in which the pile of stones that marks the summit can just be seen by my left shoulder.

Another sunny summit in the company of runners, walkers and curious bright white sheep!

Not the hardest of walks.

Thank you for these fascinating posts which have been the catalyst for a visit today to Cicerone Press (only abut three miles from where I live), where I bought a 1992 copy of The Relative Hills of Britain at much reduced price.

Cicerone do free updates on their website for many of their guides, and this one qualifies, so I will be able to make amendments if I want. There is no way I am going to do the 1556, or whatever the number is of all the Marilyns, but I would like to try and see how many of them I have already done. After that the guide should provide a framework for visiting unfamiliar locations in the future.

What do you mean M2 had long gone? Did he get the train back.

Its nice to read a blog about walking rather than gear lists.

Hi Martin

If you climb enough of these you'll eventually have done one decent hill.... Only kidding!

Conrad - if you do this, and follow Gibson's advice, you may eventually hit upon a decent hill!
