Brecon Beacons remembrance walk

A hike to remember to a Beacons war memorial

The group will hope for kinder weather than this on the Beacons

Hiking high into the Brecon Beacons isn’t everyone’s idea of a pleasant Sunday, but a hardy bunch does it every year on Remembrance Day. 

On 13 November a group of ramblers will wind their way up to a stone, laid to commemorate the crew of a Bristol Bomber that crashed into the Blorenge Ridge during training in 1940. 

Judy Cox, 74, organises the walk, and says that in fine weather you can expect to find more than 70 people on it. She also arranged the dedication of the memorial, “there have been a few crashes in the Beacons…I thought they were worth commemorating in full.” The walkers place poppy wreaths on the stone, and photos are sent to the family members of the deceased airmen.
