Cant help with grid refs,the guy with the relevent maps has gone to Hawkstone park today(sun).If you travel along Sarn Helen towards Brecon you could use the map to head towards Sennybridge,great lanes.There are lanes either side of the A40.At the junction for Eppynt ranges you will notice the derelict motel.just before the motel on the right you will find a short stretch of road that leads to a great climb.When you reach the tarmac road turn right and follow to start of Roman road.This runs parallel to the A40 and takes you towards Llandovery where there is a biker friendly cafe and a stack of lanes north and south of the town.Hope this is some help and you have a great time.

Had a fantastic day First lane i can not remember it's name is only open march and sept from near brecon towards merther was a good lane.
We then took on fuel and headed towards the roman rd near the A 4109 and made our way back towards brecon .
Had a fantastic time lanes in great condition makes Derbyshire and Northants look tame.

I would still like some grid references as we will be comeing back in the not to distant future .
