Mrs “Navigator” is a jazz fan and a regular at the Brecon Jazz Festival. Her accommodation is a large family tent which for the last few years I have travelled to Brecon to help put up – “The Navigator” takes more of a management role!
To make the most of the day we naturally combine the tent erection with a walk, enter “The Navigator”.
We had a new guest today, my neighbour Paul. Two cars were necessary mainly to leave one at Brecon but also to fill it to the brim with camping equipment, no lightweight genre here.
The walk started near the hamlet of Trallong and then north into the low hills.

There were good views of the surrounding area including further south of the Brecon Beacons and the well known silhouette of Corn Ddu and Pen y Fan and to the west Carmarthen Fans

We followed the path inside the open access land and then dropped down to Trawscoed farm. Lack of signposting gave a little problem as did the walk through the farmyard with 3 free running collies. Thankfully their bark was worse than their bite.
Once back on the path it was easy walking to Maesllwydiart Uchaf where we met up with a large flock of sheep corralled in the yard.
We joined the road and walked back to the car and then off to Priory Mill campsite where the tent was soon erected.
I trust “Mrs Navigator” enjoys the jazz – what goes on at a festival stays at the festival.
