I'm traveling from Land's End to John O' Groats by means of Google Street View and Fitbit. In other words I have actually walked every mile I log, just in a more mundane location. This blog records the route I might have taken, if I had the luxury of taking a few months off work!

Today's route

Hills and Canals do mix

A very scenic route today takes me initially parallel to the river Usk and then follows the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.

At this point my route diverges from the main road and follows a path sandwiched between the canal and the river.

Whitewater here at Llangynidr as this tributary flows down to the river Usk


Looking back up the hill, I can see that the canal itself crosses over this tributary in an aqueduct.
