CPAT PHOTO 08-C-71 Aerial view of disused limestone quarry workings and limekilns just to the north of Cadair Fawr, viewed from the west in a landscape pitted with shake holes. In the right background is the main road (A4059) between Penderyn and Brecon, which originated as a turnpike road in the early 19th century. Photo: CPAT 08-C-71.
