Glorious day for a walk along Offa's Dyke path from Hatterrall Hill. Great views of Llanthony Abbey down in the valley. I've been there many times but never seen it from this viewpoint. The return walk was just as good.

ODP#4: wonderful walk onwards from Hatterrall Hill trig along the ridge, despite it being very windy indeed, and overcast skies - watched the showers track across the Black Mountains but fortunately they all missed us! Great views east over Herefordshire. Centre, and N and W s/holes open, significant erosion round base, but the pillar itself is sound.

Very windy and hard to stand upright. Trigpoint is eroding out of the ground and will presumably topple in a few years time. Plug is missing but otherwise OK.

Left bike at Red Daren and did a circuit to get this trig and the one further north along the ridge. Would have scored higher if the visibility had been better, but probably nowhere else in England or Wales where you can walk for so far and so easily at 2000ish feet and have to do so little ascent. As this trig appears to be bang on the border, I counted this as at least half a Herefordshire trig, in which case it represented my penultimate one out of all Herefordshire trigs. Unfortunately the database only recognises the existence of Hereford and Worcester (spit!) as a county so I still appear well short of 100% completion on that count.

I came to walk the horseshoe of five 2000feet mountains, a walk that was supposed to start further up the valley at Caper-y-ffyn, but I decided to add to the walk by taking in some of the outlying trig points and therefore started at Llanthony. It was not till I got back and measured the map did I realise that this enthusiasm made what was originally going to be a 14 mile walk into a 23 mile walk. I made a bit of a pigs ear of the climb from Llantony and ended up coming up though a steep bracken slope with undefined paths. Great views all around the horseshoe and well worth it. This trig is in reasonable condition though the base is eroded and the plug missing. So puffed was I that I forgot to take a photo.
