We suggest that you approach the car park from the A465(T), turning off at Llanvihangel Crucorney. Follow the road that passes through Stanton, Henlann and Llanthony (you will pass through them in that order if you’re on the right track) in the direction of Hay-On-Wye. We recommend you stop at the stunning Llanthony Priory which has free toilets too. Also worth a visit is the chapel at Capel-y-ffin. Then park on Gospel Pass to start the search.
