Went out for a walk yesterday afternoon...been 6 six years since I have been on top of this little hill...well worth it but those 6 years have shown how unfit I am!! Sad


The Skirrid (Ysgyryd Fawr) SO330182 also referred to as Holy Mountain is located at the north eastern edge of Abergavenny. It reaches 1595 feet (486M) above sea level. This is a mountain of modest proportions but affording splendid views. It has a distinct shape formed by a landslip on one side dating from the Ice Age but reputed by legend to have occurred at the moment of crucifixion. Its splendid summit offers an excellent panorama of Abergavenny, the Sugar Loaf, and the Blorenge in Wales to the west. With equally panoramic views of the rich agricultural expanse of Herefordshire to the east.
The summit contains the remains an iron age fort and of the medieval Roman Catholic Church of St Michael which is reputed to be have been a secret location for the holding of the Catholic mass in the 17th century period of persecution

You've used the shape of the hill very effectively to lead the eye into the image and the light and shadow in the background is very nice.

Haven't been there for ten years. It's a great place with great views of Y Fal / Sugar Loaf. Excellent capture, Alan.

Been to Sugar Loaf when the family was young several times. A beautiful area and this is a beautifully captured vista. The colour and clarity is top notch.
