Blaencwm, Rhonnda Valley

2 May 2018 | South Wales Group

Richard led 13 individuals and Bentley on this fabulous 6 mile circular walk to the top of the Rhondda Valley. On meeting, the weather did not look great, but it stayed nice enough for us to take in the stunning views and the numerous waterfalls along the way. This was a really rewarding walk and well worth the effort.

We started with a gentle walk along the beautiful, tree lined Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, including Llangynidr locks. For lunch we enjoyed the vista across Talybont Reservoir, after finding a spot to shelter from the east wind (a sign of things to come!). The views from the summit of the surrounding valleys and peaks of the eastern Brecon Beacons, as well as Llangynidr mountain, were spectacular....

Following a few members meeting for lunch, around 20 people attended this very interesting 5-6 mile walk around Cardiff Bay, including some individuals from Meet-Up who were very welcome.
