The Mid-Wales graticule is full of hills and trees, but while today's hashpoint is on a hill, it is not in trees! More importantly, it's right next to the easily-accessible Centre for Alternative Technology.

My parents are in Wales for their summer holiday, and I've decided to give them something to do. ^_^ I'm keeping an eye on the hashes around them, and when one comes up nearby, I give them their instructions. I was actually there with them for one potential hash (see 2015-07-29 52 -3 for how that didn't happen), but now I'm back home in London East, United Kingdom, so it's puppeteering for me.
Apparently they made it!
As told to me, the trip involved driving to the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), driving up the side-access road, driving back down the side-access road, parking... and then walking right back up the side-access road again. A cut over a gate led into the hash-field, which was (according to Google Maps) mostly ploughed or grass.
According to my puppets, it was mostly bracken higher than their heads. Them's the breaks.
The single picture I've been given constitutes proof of date - the local newspaper - and, if you squint really hard, location as well. On the horizon, near the right-hand side of the picture, just to the left of that tall plant that's one of the few non-ferns in the image, you can just make out the top blade of CAT's wind turbine. It was one of the first wind turbines I ever saw, actually, so it's fitting that it serves to prove the location here. (Uh, you may have to zoom in to see it...! ^_^)
