Tairgwaith/Gwaun Cae Gurwen – part of Gwynfe weekend/50th celebration

Event Details

This walk starts a weekend of activities based around Gwynfe - part our 50th celebration.

There will be a social event at Gwynfe hall this evening and another walk at Carreg Cennen castle tomorrow.

See details of the social event below and click here for Sundays walk.


This is a little known but  really interesting village.

The name is thought to be derived from Gwaun Cegerwen/white hemlock heath

There was a tinplate and ironworks in this region and a lot of collieries.

The moderate 7-8 mile walk includes a trotting track, still in use today, a waterfall and two impressive railway

viaducts, one of which was built but never used!!

Plus a few lovely old chapels and a view of the wind farm on Mynydd Y Bettws where we've walked before.

There are some steep sections with uneven ground which could be muddy.

Great views over the surrounding Carmarthenshire countryside.
