Ewyas Harold Common
Ewyas Harold Common
A track leading down from the top entrance to Ewyas Harold Common off Cwm Hill. The track originates from early in World War II when a former sandstone quarry on the common was used for the disposal of waste explosives from the nearby munitions depot built by the Ministry of Supply (in the area now used for the Pontrilas Army Training Area), with the concrete slabs laid to support the lorries.

The trees in the background were planted in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.
