Hill sleuth's border research suggests Wales should shrink a little

Myrddyn Phillips, with help from fellow walker Mark Trengove, spent months researching and surveying a hill that forms the boundary between the two nations.

The popular hill in south Wales has finally had the position of its summit confirmed, along with its relation to the land border between Wales and England, with possible consequences for the boundary between the two nations.

Here, the pair advance their case for a review of the Wales-England border on the south-eastern boundary of the Brecon Beacons, and detail the months of research that led them to their conclusion.

The hill rises above the Vale of Ewyas on its Welsh side, and the upper Olchon Valley on its English side. Even its name is under debate; is it the Welsh Twyn Llech or the English Black Mountain?
