Sinc y Giedd

Monday’s trip was to head east and visit Sinc y Giedd. This is where the Afon Giedd disappears underground.


We parked in a lay by a church not far from the DanYr Ogof cave complex and then headed up Cwm Haffes.

The rain which was supposed to have stopped by 1100 failed to agree with the Met Office and it was on with kit and off again.

We had lunch at Sinc Yr Giedd, with no sign of any water and I assume it had sunk somewhere else.

Following lunch we continued in a south easterly direction passing numerous shake holes and the like.

An afternoon break was taken by a large pond before our final descent back to the car the sun now shining.

This is not Peru
