Huw recenty joined the hugely popular Ramblers Cymru Big Welsh Walk which is supported by the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team, in Ceredigion on Saturday, May 6th.
The four separate trails which are supported by the People’s Postcode Lottery, ranged between two and fifteen miles and took walkers through stunning scenery near Devils Bridge/Pontarfynach, an area made famous by the S4C detective series, Hinterland. Walkers were encouraged to raise sponsorship money, with the cash raised going towards maintaining Ramblers Cymru’s extensive network of public footpaths throughout Wales.
Huw said: “What a great day taking part in the Ramblers Cymru Big Welsh Walk! A celebration of walking our Welsh countryside, sharing the experience with friends and making new friends, and of course enjoying the health benefits which come from being out and about in the great outdoors. To be awarded a medal for doing the 15 mile walk in our glorious welsh countryside was an added bonus along with meeting Sian, owner of the family-owned rural business Tynrhyd Retreat – a stunning guest house situated at Devil’s Bridge, used as our base.”
Director of Ramblers Cymru, Angela Charlton, said: “We are working to create a Wales where everyone can enjoy walking in the great outdoors and the many health and social benefits it brings. Our path network is something to be treasured and we want everyone to recognise the value that it brings in connecting people to the places around them. By joining up communities, connecting people to their local landscapes, unveiling new places to discover and continuing to maintain our world class network of paths, we can make Wales the best walking country in the world. Not just for us, but for future generations to come.”
