Drovers' Way 2018

Enjoying the welsh countryside - in between food stops!

· News

The ever-popular 'Drovers' Way' was this year attended by 28 brethren and ladies, with a change to the normal format.

This is a driving event that follows the route used from medieval times by the sheep drovers as they moved sheep and cattle from the upland pastures of Wales to the lowland fattening pastures of the Midlands. It flows over hills and down valleys and offers spectacular views on a nearly-deserted road (or more accurately track),

The day began, as usual, with coffee at Monkland Cheese Shop followed - after a short drive - by lunch in a private oak-panelled dining room at Caer Beris Hotel in Builth Wells, with its beautiful gardens and river view.

The drive along Drovers' Way came after lunch and, as usual, the scenery was spectacular, but this year - for once! - the weather was splendid too!

Yet more food was consumed at Devils Bridge (tea and cakes this time) before a leisurely drive home along the mountain sections of the A44.

The committee and all the participants thank W Bro Roy Padden for organising another fabulous 'Drovers' Way'!
