Event Details

Coronavirus / Covid-19

Following recent changes in government advice regarding Covid-19 to avoid all non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, all walks and other activities are cancelled until further notice.

We will continue to review the situation in line with guidance issued by the government.  Further information can be found here, and will be udpated in due course.

General information

Explore the area where London lesbians and gays came to support the mining community of Onllwyn during the miners strike in 1984/5.

See actual locations where "Pride" was filmed. Not seen the film? We recommend you do.

We will go behind Henrhyd, the highest waterfall in South Wales, and walk on a Roman road beside the sites of a fort and camp.  St Patrick is said to have been born here.

The terrain includes a steep descent to the waterfall, and uphill on the Roman road, but is otherwise a fairly level route on moorland, fields, tarmac lanes and stony tracks.  Several stiles.
