Mon 30 Jan 2023 CPD Workshop: Learn about…the Blaen y Glyn area

Mon 30 Jan 9:30 am 3:00 pm

Come and join Brecon Beacons National Park Authority’s Geopark Development Officer, Alan Bowring, for an exploration of the geology and history of Blaen y Glyn gorge and its surrounding mountain area. We’ll take a circular walking tour up the Caerfanell gorge and up on to Waun Rydd (and its Wellington bomber memorial) and the summit of Craig y Fan Ddu before returning down Nant Bwrefwr to the car park [subject to weather conditions, of course]. Participants will need suitable clothing and equipment for a mountain walk in the prevailing weather, including packed lunch / snacks. Book ‘tickets’ or RSVP using the buttons below, or e-mail coordinator@swoapg.com.

This is the first of a series of practical, outdoor workshops providing opportunities for instructors and providers to learn about some of the areas we work in, both for their own education and to enable them to help their clients to better appreciate these special places. Each will be led by a volunteer SWOAPG Provider* with expert staff from Brecon Beacons National Park Authority.

This workshop is open to all South Wales outdoor instructors and SWOAPG supporters, for whom the following fees will apply:

  • SWOAPG Members and Supporters: £15 for first employee, £5 each for additional employees (employed staff only, not freelancers, up to 3 staff per Member in first instance, please e-mail the organiser if you wish to book more places).
  • Non-Members: £28 (this will include Associate Membership up to 31 March, enabling you to attend other workshops before then at the Members’ rate).

Once you have booked, the organiser or workshop Provider will be in contact with you to confirm final details.

* The Provider for this workshop will be Steve Rayner Outdoor Pursuits, with Steve representing his own business as a volunteer in conjunction with his role as SWOAPG Coordinator.

Free – £28.00
