Battle of Bryn Glas

Another Saturday and another bike ride, we had arranged to meet Bonzo over at Crossgates cafe so after leaving the M5 at junction 7 and then followed the A44 from Worcester through Bromyard, Leominster & Kington until we arrived cold, wet and in need if a pee (the last 2 not related to each other)

After breakfast we headed along the A488 for all of 12 miles until we found the church at Pilleth that is the site of the Battle of Bryn Glas. The battle was fought on 22 June, 1402 (Bob remembers it as if it was only yesterday) and according to Wikipedia it was victory for the Welsh rebels under Owain Glyndwr.

Unfortunately access to the church from the main road is via a very bumpy gravel lane but we all managed to navigate the lane without incident and once we arrived at the church we managed to bag our evidence photos for the Grim Riders Battlefields Ride
