The Ceri Ridgeway is a route that was used by Drovers to drove sheep from central Wales through to London, Smithfields. The drovers got a bad name for being rough and drunkards and yet the situation might suggest otherwise. These tough men collected sheep along the way without payment or computerised records and took them all the way to Smithfield market and returned with the payment for the families.
We can see the ridgeway from our front door and hope one day to walk each section of this seventeen mile ridge (all above 1000 feet).
