Perfect Day for the Llanfedw walk February 13th

This shows you where Llanfedw is. It was possibly a part of an area connected with the Church, but was moved in the 16th Century from Monmouthshire to Glamorganshire. That is why it now lies in the County Borough of Caerphilly. We heard and saw a lot of the ancient and medieval history of the area. Under the map is a picture of the group on the top of Coed Ruperra enjoying a view of the landscape all around. Then we went to the Cefn Mably Arms!

The first walk of the year!

This will be a shorter walk than usual in case the weather is still wintry. We will have a look round at the interesting parts of Llanfedw that were there before Ruperra Castle was built. As usual Anthony Rees at Ruperra Home farm is willing for us to park there. 
After the walk we'll call in at the Cefn Mably Arms to refresh ourselves.
