Fan Brychieniog & Carreg Goch crash site

A circular walk with my friends Mitch and David. From Glyntawe we went up along Fan Hir onto Fan Brychieniog then across Bannau Sir Gaer and back via Carreg Goch and the Wellington bomber crash site. This was a really enjoyable walk with good company and a little off path navigation thrown in to find the crash site, which was a very sobering experience seeing the remains of the wreckage.
