The National Trust sign at the summit of Pen y Fan has sold at auction for £2,100.

The sale of the sign, a popular selfie location for the hundreds of thousands of walkers who climb the mountain each year, is raising money for the Brecon Beacons appeal.

The appeal is raising to maintain the walkways and paths on Pen y Fan.

The stone surfacing work has gone really well so far and donations from the appeal have been a great boost to our programme.

We couldn't have completed this year's work without the funding and efforts of our rangers and volunteers, who have been able to help to create a stable footpath on the Pont ar Daf route so people can continue to enjoy walking this iconic landscape.
