    Hi all

    camping will be available form Friday, controlled bbq's are fine but no open fires, please bring your own water, £2 per pitch which goes to landowner.

    Now the hard part as some of you know its not the easiest place to find and the nearest postcode doesn't realy help:cool: Quarry Coordinates W3.1756 N51.63974 -3.1756 51.63974, the attached map is from the roundabout from the bottom of the hill

    Not familiar with Google map, the easiest way is to get on the A472 and lookout for Mynyddislwyn on the roundabouts (good luck if you have to ask someone for directions)

    Weathers looking good,

    Anyone camping at Quarry?

    Or might I be on my own, the way I snore, won't be a bad thing.

    This may help a little for anyone having a satnav like mine that doesn't recognise the postcode e.t.c.
    I have found the roundabout on it that Pete said follow directions from with his map and put that in but seeing as my satnav doesn't speak welsh it is spelt differently which is why I couldn't find it at first.....it is spelt PENTMYMAWR roundabout on mine but I've checked on google maps and it is the same one.
    Anybody finding it difficult to get their satnav to recognise anything in the area, then try putting this in;)
