A view across the Wye Valley from below Hay Bluff. The white blobs on the hillside are of course the inevitable sheep. I would be surprised if anyone could travel to Wales and not see some sheep.

This view is from below Gospel Pass looking North West out over the Wye Valley.

A small road goes through the Gospel pass and leads into the Vale of Ewyas to the South-East.

Looking North along the valley from near Llanthony, towards Capel-y-Ffin and the 1800 feet high Gospel Pass.

The River Honddu flows through this valley but a word of caution if you look for this river on a map. There is another River Honddu which flows through Brecon from the north to join the River Usk. Don't confuse the two!
