Plodding around Powys

Posted by Steven Whitehouse on 25 June 2008 in English (English)

Over several days last week I've been on holiday in Powys, gathering as much data as I could in the time available. There is still a lot to do in the area in which I was based (roughly between Newtown, Llanfair Caereinion & Welshpool) but at least there are a few more roads in there now so that we can start to have a framework to work to.

I'm going back in August so I hope to fill in some of the gaps then if nobody beats me to it in the mean time.

The only item that I mapped which I've not added so far is the Powys Gorsedd stones in the Goat Field Arboretum in Llanfair Caereinion, I need to do a bit of research to work out what to tag them as.

I can highly recommend this area as a great place to go on holiday. There are lots of interesting things to see in the area.

Lovely area - will be great to see it on the map. I'm hoping to do a bit of mapping to the east of there (my mum's just moved to Church Stretton). Have you seen there's a mapping party in September a short way south-east, near Knighton/Kington/Radnor?

Yes, I did think about joining that mapping party, although normally I've been working in South Wales and I don't make it up that far North more than once or twice a year. Not sure what I'm likely to be doing in September yet.
