Well done - six days is good - where did you stop on each of the nights? There must have been some long days in there.

When I did it north to south in April 1991 the overnight stops were ;
Maeshafn Youth Hostel,
Llangollen Youth Hostel,
Welshpool pub,
Knighton Youth Hostel,
Capel-y-Ffin Youth Hostel,
Monmouth Youth Hostel,
which only goes to prove how many rural Youth Hostels have closed in recent years.
