Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   While there is generally no fixed maximum number of participants on an event, an event may have a limit in place based on it's risk assessment.   All events still require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

This is a 7 mile circular walk, crossing the fields and lanes around Tondu, Coytrahen and Brynmenyn , along the Llynfi and Garw valleys.  We will walk through Parc Slip Nature Reserve and Bryngarw Country Park, as well as passing the site of Tondu Ironworks (the best preserved Victorian ironworks in Wales).  The walk gives a glimpse of how the South Wales Valleys changed over time, throughout the period of heavy industry and since its demise.

The walk is muddy in parts after rain, with around ten stiles (some of which are in poor condition).

Waterproofs, warm clothing, and suitable footwear are essential.  Please bring a packed lunch and fluids.
