The Old Mill

Having had a quick look at the map when we got back it seemed that the mill was just a little further than Jacob and I managed to get the other day (https://garywilliamsblog.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/further-up-the-clettwr/). So James and I decided that we’d try and find a link between the path to the bridge (https://garywilliamsblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/100_9504.jpg) and the one Jacob and I found.  We needed to cross the Clettwr, a bit further up than the bridge, to miss another stream that feeds into it. Then we spotted what looked like an old path running up the hill side. That brought us out by the top of the gorge by the other path we were looking for. We headed downhill and had lunch.



Then we decided to cross the river again. Even though it was shallow you could still feel the current.

We must come back and have a swim in the deep pools.

We followed a path along the side of the river and came to the Mill.

There’s a little bridge across to it with fantastic waterfalls as the Clettwr spills over the rocks.


There’s still plenty to explore further up the valley. James had cut down a stick and was making patterns in the bark with his knife.


Then we walked back over the fields and back into the woods. In the distance Hay Bluff could be seen still covered in snow.
