Welcome to Black Mountains (Y Mynyddoedd Duon)

The scenic and secluded Vale of Ewyas traces the path of the River Honddu through the heart of the Black Mountains, from the tiny village of Llanvihangel Crucorney to the exposed Gospel Pass (549m), where a single-track road winds its way through a magically bleak landscape down to Hay-on-Wye. Along the way it passes the picturesque ruins of Llanthony Priory and the hamlet of Capel-y-Ffin, where there are more monastic ruins and the 18th-century Church of St Mary the Virgin.
