Just been given this place as my nearest assessment centre to Leominster Herefordshire. It's 46 miles away, not served by a bus route and definitely been chosen as the most awkward place to access for a disabled person with a permanent spinal injury.

The roads are mountain roads in wales and it is not handy to any bus or train stops. the car travel allowance at 25p per mile is £23. A taxi firm quoted £55 to do this journey as the driver would have to wait and take me back or I pay £45 twice !!
