RIGS Workday in the Usk Inlier

Message from Nigel:

Hi All,

Elen has been busy organising meetings following our site visits during our September meeting to a couple of sites in the Usk Inlier.

We start at the Cefn Lla site doing some site clearance work in conjunction with the Woodland Trust, the site owners. For this joint operation please bring some basic digging, cutting and cleaning tools.

In the afternoon Elen has also arranged a meeting with representatives of the Usk Prison for a discussion on site at the Cilwgri site. So a full and interesting day!

We meet at the Cefn Lla car park on Wednesday December 5th at 10.30am and bring your own lunch – although there is a cafe at the garden centre in nearby Llanbadoc. Grid reference O.S. Explorer sheet no.152, SO 363217. To get there take the following route – coming off the M4 at Coldra (J.24) onto the A 449 Monmouth road. Take the first turn off to Usk. Go through Usk and turn left immediately after crossing the bridge and take the first right opposite Llanbadoc Church. After 1/2 mile there is a sharp bend with a steep cliff on your left. There is a small lodge house Pant y Cwcw immediately on your right coming out of the bend. In a short distance is the turn to the right to Cefn Lla Farm and follow it to the car park. Let me or Elen know if you have any queries.

Cheers Nigel

Cefn Lla
