Directions:   Near Abergavenny, Llanelly Hill is between Llanelly and Blaenavon. Just head into the mountains from Blaenavon iron works (latter is well signed with Brown tourism signs). Leaving the iron works behind you on the left, Llanelly Hill, while not specifically signed, is the first area of foot paths more or less at the high point of the road, identified by a cross roads with footpath signs left and right.
Distance (miles):   35.8 miles to Llanelly but you want Llanelly Hill, 37.4 to Blaenavon
Time (hours):      0.54 to Llanelly, 1.01 to Blaenavon.
Length of Walk:   Allow an hour to get to the top of Llanelly Hill, marked by a stone marker.
Dates Walked:   02/01/2009, 01/01/2010,
Parking:      Free along roadside near paths leading to Llanelly Hill.

Pop in to:    Abergavenny is a worthwhile town for shopping. I like it.

In the summer the Blaenavon iron works would also be worth a visit; they are closed in the winter.
