The first stone (concrete) way marker I reached on my walk this week on the Mawr was marking The Gower Way or Llwybr Gwyr. With my short route marked this clearly (!?), I lost much of my concern for being enveloped by cloud and happily carried on towards the top.
And as I reached the next marker I could also see ahead of me an unexpected sculpturing of the landscape. This turned out to be Penlle’r Castell, a medieval settlement consisting of the remains of small stone dwellings surrounded by an embankment and ditch. I was aware of the site from maps but had not appreciated that this was the hill I was climbing.
It is remarkable how clearly defined the arrangement of the settlement is and it was not the only thing that was now clear. The mist had lifted and the visibility was much improved . . . momentarily!
Most of the shots above were taken on my iPhone 6.
