Welcome to the SaSq squares for August 2018

Our unrecorded squares for August are near Llangurig & Rhayader along the A470 and near Hay on Wye in the Black Mountains. All have easy access with minor roads running through along with several rights of way. If you do go out recording follow a common sense approach and have a look at our notes.

VC47 Montgomeryshire - SN9378 - VC47 Montgomeryshire

SN9378 is near Llangurig and on the border with VC43, the yellow shaded line. The adjacent square SN9478 now has records so is not an unrecorderd square. Access is via the minor road off the A470 and various public rights of way. The woodland and small blocks of trees offer the most interest.

VC43 Radnorshire - SN9272 - VC43 Radnorshire

SN9272 is north of Rhayader. Access is via a minor road which runs parallel with the A470. Turn off the A470 about 2km north of Gilfach Nature Reserve signed to Dernol. A bridleway allows access. This crosses the Nant Rhiw-gam which flows into the near-by River Wye. The adjacent square SN9172 is also unrecorded.

VC42 Brecknockshire - SO2135 - VC42 Brecknockshire

SO2135 is below the slopes of Twmpa or Lord Hereford's Knob south of the minor road between Talgarth and Hay on Wye. Access is via the minor roads between Felindre and Tregoyd and the many rights of way within the square. Of interest are many hedgerows and linear woodland.
