We did walk a fair way up Sugarloaf in hot sunshine, but near the summit the clouds rolled in and with a chill wind blowing up we decided to retrace our steps.
Having seen the ruins of Raglan Castle in the distance on several occasions on our trips into Wales, this was our first visit and we were surprised at the extent of the site. An added bonus was a large Medieval encampment within the grounds, with costumed re-enactors, mock battles, archery, etc. - very atmospheric and colourful.
