Welcome to the centre of the Universe!... See you went past the observatory. Tucked in behind that
is one of the whitest, most pristine trig points you will ever see. Llan-wen is on Ed Clements 100m
drop list of Welsh Hills, and a very fine drive up bag (shame!)

Did you meet the Radnorshire bogey? The vast number of blocked paths and bridleways.....

I tried to reply to this before but NTL seems to have more bogies that Radnorshire right now.

No, Rich, not really. The only time we've ever encountered a problem was when walking near Broome
and there was a missing finger board. Otherwise I have found that the paths outside the waymarked
trails (Shropshire Walks, Wild Edric's and Offa's Dyke) are not as well signed as you would like but
are otherwise OK to follow as long as you can use a map. Is there are particualr area that this is a
problem in ?

The Powys counties = problems Shropshire - few problems.

Often find in Radnorshire that the paths being unused, just become overgrown - the hedges heal over
the stiles etc.. Always get through, but its rarely straight forward.

Used to have big problems in occupied Herefordshire, but towards the end of Worcester rule things
did improve. Worcs. first spent the fp budget in Worcestershire, and little trickled west.
Shropshire has been good since the early 1980s and is a very hassle free area in which to walk.
