Exploring the Epynt

The view north from Mynydd Epynt

The Mynydd Epynt is a wild upland area, north of the Brecon Beacons that has been preserved in time. In 1940 the War Office acquired 12,000 hectares for the urgent need for a training area. 219 people were forced to leave their homes as a "temporary measure". Today SENTA (Sennybridge Training Area) is still in place. However excellent road access is allowed on most days and this makes for a fascinating day out. We'll drive "the range roads", stop at the visitor centre that illustrates the history and wildlife of this immense area and make sure that the comfy hotels and tearooms that surround these hills don't go unnoticed!
