First time exploring the Beacons and Black Mountains. Soooo many great roads. Couldn't resist a shot at the hairpin though.

I do wish people would stop parking on the outside of this corner. Really spoils the run through it for anyone else coming down the hill. Plenty of other places to park nearby.

You have posted almost what I was going to say!

There was some 'special' parking there this evening.

A truly awesome bit of road, stayed in Llandovey on the weekend, and drove this many times. Just got back to the hotel from the evo triangle, and I think the A4069 is much better. How about a name for it? Pistonheads pass?

This thread inspired me to drive this road for the 1st time. Very special bit of road.

Took about 1.5 hours to get there, looking forward to summer for some early morning fun smile

Got an appointment in Bristol tomorrow, that lovely looking corner isn't that far away, is it ?

I'd guess at about 90 minutes - down the M4 to Junction 45 is your best bet I believe.

Well, I went to Bristol for my meeting, got a bit accidentally lost on purpose, and ended up here...



Incredibly wet and windy, mate tried to get some action pics but the lens fogged up, still, a pleasant afternoon skive smile

Some of my car, middle of last year. biggrin













Ok, the last one isn't from the bend, it is from the car park overlooking the national park. But many a happy hour has been spent there, either relaxing between spirited drives or watching other performance cars go past. spin

Takes me back a bit - used to use that bit of road when I was organising the Red Dragon Rally in a previous life smile

It was my FiL's favourite bit of road. Took him for one last blast around it both ways in the M3 Vert before we spread his ashes looking down on the corner smile
