Gwaunceste Hill 2019

GW/MW-010, Gwaunceste Hill – 542m, 2 Points

A few miles South of Great Rhos is Gwaunceste Hill.

It was not clear if there would be room to park on the farm track down to Rhewey so I parked in the lay-by on the main road at SO 150 575.  Walking along the track I could see it should be possible to park on the verge at SO 149 573 without causing an obstruction.  The farm at Rhewey is not terribly welcoming with dogs chained up in the yard and signs on every fence stating the private nature of the land.  Hold your nerve though and walk straight through as is your right.  Once beyong the gate at the end of the farm yard it is a pleasant stroll up a good track.  South of the gate at SO 155 565 the land is signed as a SSI.  Stay on the good track here rather than taking a bearing for the summit as the going is very tough once off the track.  Make your own decision how far to follow the track before turning cross county for the final push up to the trig point.
