Winnats Pass is a well known very steep narrow little road, which is great to visit in summer but not so brilliant in winter. The Cat and Fiddle Inn, the second highest Inn in the UK, does not look very welcoming in the winter at all. I expect it was very draughty on windy days, which would apply most of the year round.
I think Charlie is second in on the left of this line-up. The lower picture is of the Club section having a tea break on the return leg from the Annual Meriden cyclists service to remember those who gave their lives during the first World War. Many who joined up as cyclists were used as messengers serving the front line.
Charlie comments: Glorious weather – for Easter. Very little traffic, cyclists predominantly. The Bwlch Y Groes Pass was still taboo to ordinary motors. We had difficulty getting accommodation due to B & B’s not yet open for the Spring. The top picture was taken en route at the Pentre Foelas public water tap.
