Abdon and Clee – the Burfs

They’re the two summits of Brown Clee – Abdon Burf and Clee Burf. It’s a beautiful day – bright and sunny, cool clear air – perfect for the hills. We’ll take a picnic lunch and aim for that bench above the Five Springs. Sadly, someone else has got there first – that never happens! So our dining chairs will be dining rocks, just beyond the top of Clee Burf, facing an extensive panorama of hills through an arc from the south east, through Titterstone Clee, to the south west. Pen y Fan, the highest point of the Brecon Beacons, is just visible on the far horizon, some 55 miles distant.

The views from our return route, east of the ridge, are not to the same standard – but the blue of Boyne Water, where dragonflies flit. provides a pleasant backdrop for a second (very small!) lunch…
