Walk: A brief stop as we were passing on our way to Monsal Head
Weather: Sunny
Comments: Pat wasn't with us the first time we called here so we made a quick stop to look at the popular bridge. There are varying explanations about the process used in the sheepwashing procedure but the one given on our first visit seems the most practical.

Sheep entered the water at this side of the River Wye
and were encouraged to swim across to their lambs . . .

which had been put into the pen on the opposite side
