Our Weekend Away Break in the Brecon Beacons

This year our Autumn Away Break was in the heart of the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons. We stayed at the Cwmfforest Riding Centre with great walking country on our doorstep. Walking was the main focus of our activities, but for some it was horse riding, while canoeing near Crickhowell provided another interesting option. All in tune with the "Clog Active" Initiative.

On Saturday we scaled Waun Fawr, at 810 metres, the highest
- and perhaps the windiest - point in the Brecon Beacons.
Jim is on the left, and yours truely second from the right.
Anyone else who wishes to be identified here, please let me know!

What I describe in these pages focusses on my own involvement, which was, of course, only part of the rich tapestry of activities for this CLOG weekend away.


Thank you Jim and Penny for organising this multi-activity away break, as part of the "Clog-Active" Initiative. Thank you walk leaders and event organisers. Thank you all for your company - it was nice to see you all again! We certainly had a successful weekend - lots of nice countryside and good exercise. It was mid-October, but still, the weather gods smiled benignly on our endeavours! Of course, we all hope for more of the same!

Technical Bits and Pieces

There are at least three aspects which I could raise here, including the behaviour of your browser, the behaviour of Windows 10® and general items buried elsewhere on my site.

  • Browser Behaviour: If your browser appears to be lazy and does not want to load all the pictures, a friendly press on its refresh button might just get your browser out of its recalcitrant ways.
  • Windows 10®: I have started to use Windows 10® in earnest. So far so seemingly good, and hopefully my continuing experience - and indeed that of other new users - of Windows 10® will remain positive!
  • More Technical Items: Whilst I have not had a chance to update the technical items on my "Read Me" page, you might find some further relevant things here.
