Where is this?...

Sorry for sounding silly, if it is somewhere obvious, but where is this:



Presuming tarmacjohn knows, as he is in the picture, but looks like a nice area to walk (or climb/scramble) in!

But where is it?!!

I know exactly where it is, I wll remember that cache forever. You can probably just notice something on the floor in front of me. It is a memorial to a small boy, Tommy Jones, aged 5 who lost his life on the hill after getting lost on a winters night.

It is in the Brecon Beacons not far off the Pen-Y-Fan Horseshoe. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCGJHW

Just after we found the cache we were met by about 20 SAS soldiers dressed in full combats and with weapons out on an operation.



Hmmmm...... Pen-y-Fan horseshoe, now there's an idea

A lovely area to walk, which I've done a few times and met some of those soldiers you talked about  ;D
